Coach Seong-Hwan Cho, I hope Incheon will win the Young Player Award [sports]

COACH CHO SEONG-HWAN: “I HOPE INCHEON WILL WIN THE YOUNG PLAYER AWARD, BECOME THE TOP SCORER AND BE SELECTED AS ONE OF THE BEST 11 PLAYERS”





“If the home crowd reaches 10,000 people, I will think about a surprise event after the season.”

“I will not be arrogant like a rabbit… I will take one step at a time toward my goal.”

“I hope the Young Player Award, Top Scorer, and Best 11 will all come out in Incheon.”

Cho Seong-hwan, coach of professional soccer K-League 1 Incheon United, met with reporters prior to the 2024 season inauguration ceremony held at the Incheon Global Campus auditorium on the 25th and said, “The Manager Award is water.

“I think I’ve passed over,” he said with a smile, expressing his hope for his students to win titles. 카지노사이트

Coach Cho Sung-hwan said, “It’s already my 10th year as a coach, and I think the players will work hard and do well this season as well,” and especially looked forward to the performance of U-22 players Choi Woo-jin (20) and Park Seung-ho (21).

Coach Cho was also worried that Choi Woo-jin seemed to have fallen into the second-year jinx.

He said, “At first, I didn't know much about it and took on the challenge with passion, but these days, I think I'm finding soccer difficult as well.

Although he was concerned that it could be a second-year jinx, he added, “The offensive options are quite good.

He expressed his affection, saying, “If I improve my positioning ability and gain experience, I think I have the skills to be a good resource not only for Incheon's future but also for the A team.”

He also said, “I hope that many of Incheon's players will join the Olympic team or the A team.

“Individual development is ultimately the development of Incheon,” he said.

“Their void can be filled with good-willed competition from other players.”

Coach Cho set a goal of averaging 10,000 spectators with the ambition to enter Final A for the third consecutive year and stand tall as one of the Big Four along with Ulsan HD, Jeonbuk Hyundai, and Pohang Steelers.

Coach Cho said, “A good team doesn’t have ups and downs.

“We will maintain continuity without major fluctuations in both performance and rankings,” he declared.

“If we achieve an average attendance of more than 10,000 or have a full home crowd, we will think about a surprise event after the season”

Coach Cho, who set the goal of entering the Final A, said, He cautioned against the attitude of the ‘rabbit', referring to the ‘Rabbit and the Turtle'.

Director Cho said, “Like the rabbit, I will not look down on (the turtle) and be conceited, and will take one step at a time towards my goal, whether in good times or bad times.

“I will not be swayed by the surrounding circumstances, but will look ahead and aim for a big goal,” he pledged.

Incheon won 4 times and accumulated 12 points in Group G of the 2023-2024 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Champions League (ACL) group stage, but lost on goal difference to coach Choi Kang-hee's Shandong Taishan (China) and Yokohama Marinos (Japan).

They were pushed back and failed to advance to the round of 16.

Regarding the rumor that Group G was the ‘Group of Death' as ​​Shandong and Yokohama both advanced to the ACL quarterfinals, Coach Cho said, “As a coach, I reflect on my shortcomings in game management and player management.

If I face the same situation next time, “I will not repeat my mistake,” he said, looking at himself rather than blaming his bad luck.

Manager Cho, who expressed his sense of responsibility as a manager, also mentioned manager Jurgen Klopp, who recently announced that he would step down as manager of Liverpool, a famous English professional football club in the Premier League (EPL).

Coach Cho said, “I am not in the same position as Manager Klopp, but I fully understand how he feels.”

Referring to the K-League opening media day scheduled for the 26th, he said, “Every time I go to Media Day, I worry, ‘Will I be able to stand here again next year?' “It intersects,” he said, expressing the enormous burden he felt as a director.

Meanwhile, on this day, 1,402 fans filled the 2024 season inauguration ceremony in Incheon, expressing their expectations for the new season.

Captain Lee Myung-joo pledged, “I prepared well by sweating a lot in Thailand and Changwon, Gyeongsangnam-do.

I will prepare well for the remaining week and work hard to win the opening game.”

Incheon will play the opening match of the 2024 season against Suwon FC at Incheon Stadium on the 2nd of next month.

Kim Ha-seong’s Defensive Battle in the Seoul Series [sports]

Mookie Betts, Dodgers Shortstop… Kim Ha-seong’s Defensive Battle in the Seoul Series




The Los Angeles Dodgers of the Major League Baseball (MLB) replaced their starting shortstop with Mookie Betts 11 days ahead of the official opening of the 2024 MLB season.

Betts started as the number one hitter and shortstop in the MLB exhibition game against the Cincinnati Reds, where a ‘no game due to rain’ was declared before the bottom of the fifth inning, starting at Camelback Ranch in Glendale, Arizona, USA on the 9th (Korean time). 카지노사이트

Originally, the Dodgers planned to form the 2024 keystone combination of second baseman Betts and shortstop Gavin Lux.

However, as Lux revealed a throwing problem, coach Dave Roberts made a decision.

In an interview with local media such as MLB.com on the 9th, Manager Roberts said, “Using Betts as a shortstop is a way to reduce our team’s runs lost as much as possible,” and added, “Using Lux, who feels psychological burden, as a second baseman is the most appropriate decision for the team.”

“For the time being, it is okay to view Betts as a ‘built-in shortstop.’”

In his MLB career, Betts played 8,121⅓ innings as a right fielder and only 98 innings as a shortstop.

He played second base for 713 innings.

Mookie Betts accepted Coach Roberts’ decision, saying, “Playing as the Dodgers’ shortstop is a huge burden, but it’s also fun.
