Daegu FC head coach Choi Won-kwon’s worries are deepening.
Choi’s Daegu held Ulsan Hyundai to a goalless 0-0 draw in the 25th round of the Hana One Q K League 1 2023 at DGB Daegu Bank Park on Friday. Daegu is now winless in its last four matches (D3, L1).
Daegu had a rather quiet summer transfer window. Aside from foreign midfielder Beltola, the team hasn’t brought in any new players. The highly anticipated signing is still out of action. He hasn’t made a single appearance, let alone the starting lineup. Today, he watched the game from the stands.
He still hasn’t joined the team training. He is focusing on his rehabilitation. Coach Choi said, “Beltola was on vacation when he came to Korea. He’s been slow to get back into shape. According to the rehabilitation trainer, he is digesting the training positively. From next week, he will start training with the team,” Choi said, adding, “If he has a strong will, he will push himself. I’m on loan, so it’s going to be a while before I’m ready to play. I have a headache. We don’t have enough midfielders,” he said. For Daegu, midfielders Lee Yong-rae and Lee Jin-yong are getting more playing time. Forward Ko Jae-hyun and defender Hwang Jae-won are occasionally used in the midfield, but it’s just a stopgap measure.
On top of that, Daegu has been in a scoring poverty of late. In five games in July, they scored just four goals. There have also been two scoreless matches. On top of that, foreign strikers are not scoring. Since Sejingya’s goal against Suwon Samsung (1-1 draw) on July 1, there have been no goals from Sejingya, Edgar, or Vasellus in five games.토스카지노
Not surprisingly, Daegu hasn’t been able to accumulate points. With the mid-table race tighter than ever, the summer could be a watershed moment for points. On this particular day, Vaselus had a golden opportunity in the 14th minute of the second half. After a move involving Sejingya and Edgar, Vassellus found himself one-on-one with the keeper, but his right-footed shot hit the crossbar. It was a disappointing moment for Vassellus, his Daegu teammates, the bench, and the fans.
Choi was unusually vocal with the foreign strikers after the game, saying, “The strikers’ failure to score should be improved. “We are not a team that creates a lot of chances,” he said, adding, “The forwards have to play with their lives. The strikers have to play with their lives. They need to work hard even if they don’t score. We will still have chances. We don’t have the resources. I will train them.”
Daegu will now embark on a two-game road trip against Incheon United and FC Seoul. With a second chance on the line, Daegu will need their foreign strikers to score if they want to get back on the winning track.
