Chungbuk Cheongju head coach Choi Yoon-gyum was bitter after the team’s upset loss to Chungnam Asan, saying they were outplayed in their mental preparation.
Chungbuk Cheongju lost 2-3 against Chungnam Asan in the 26th round of the Hana OneQ K League 2 2023 on Thursday at 4 p.m. at the Asan Yi Sunshin Sports Complex. Chungbuk Cheongju scored consecutive goals in the 39th minute of the first half and Lee Seung-jae in the 35th minute, but Asan striker Kang Min-kyu in the 17th minute, Hafael in the 42nd minute, and Park Dae-hwan just before the end of the match.
Coach Choi said at the post-match press conference, “We have many regrets. We were too quick to make substitutions,” Choi said, adding, “Chungnam Asan was a bit ahead of us in terms of desperation. We weren’t mentally prepared and it showed in our performance. We have been playing with the attitude of a new team, but I think today was a game where we were a little bit ‘cocky’,” he said.
“Jang Hyuk-jin and Lee Hansam have been providing leadership on and off the field, but today we had younger guys on the defense line, so I think we were a bit lacking in that regard.” “Before the game, we were told to be careful because we had a lot of players with warning problems, but today Hong Won-jin got a warning. We’re still missing our main players, and I think we need to control that.”토토사이트
“I had a problem with my ankle in training on Thursday, and I think it showed in today’s game,” said Giorgi, who had one goal and one assist. “But I asked him earlier and he didn’t seem to be too badly hurt. Anyway, he shouldn’t get a warning. I’m giving him a warning.”
Finally, Choi lamented, “The rookies have done their part over the course of the season, but today was the worst.” He added, “Today was strange even before the game started. The field conditions were bad and there were a lot of cheering fans. It’s an excuse, but I think it’s also a defeat that we couldn’t adapt to this chaotic atmosphere.”
