It was a farewell game for a key player. The coach expressed his disappointment until the end.
Suwon FC lost 1-3 to Ulsan Hyundai in the 17th round of the Hana WonQ K League 1 2023 at Suwon Sports Complex at 4:30 p.m. on June 6. The result leaves Ulsan with 13 wins, two draws, two losses and 41 points, 12 points clear of second-place Jeju United. Suwon FC remained in ninth place with five wins, three draws and nine losses for 18 points.
In the post-match press conference, Suwon FC head coach Kim Do-gyun said, “It was a home game and Park Joo-ho’s retirement game. The players played hard. There are many factors, but we also saw a drop in physical strength in the second half. That’s the most regrettable thing. We should have been more precise when coming from defense to attack. We worked hard.”
It was a game that will be deeply regretted. Suwon FC took the lead in the first half with a goal from Yoon Beom-garam. However, they conceded three goals in the second half to Martin Adam, In-Joo Kyu, and Bako to go down 1-3. Speaking about their defensive woes, coach Kim Do-gyun said, “It’s the same for the first goal or the third goal. It’s a matter of physical strength or concentration. I don’t know if it’s the players’ abilities or their limitations, but it’s definitely disappointing as a coach. It’s unfortunate that we conceded goals that we shouldn’t have.”
At the start of the second half, Park Chul-woo was replaced by Lee Seung-woo. “In the first half, players like Park Chul-woo, Jang Jae-woong, and Lee Dae-gwang played and substituted,” said Kim Do-gyun. Park Chul-woo did a good job. I thought about the physical part, he played a lot. In the second half, while defending, we wanted to score one more goal when we had a chance to attack. That’s why we put Lee Seung-woo on. Offensively, we left a lot to be desired. It’s the same with Lars and Lee Seung-woo. It’s a disappointing game.”먹튀검증
In his retirement match, Park started in central midfield. He partnered with Kim Sun-min and Yoon Beetgaram in the center of the pitch. He was the engine of Suwon FC, covering all areas of the pitch before being substituted just before the end of the second half. Coach Kim Do-gyun said, “As you can see, he played hard. He dedicated himself to the team today as well. Park Joo-ho played a good game. Watching the game, I had a lot of regrets about his retirement.”
