Coach Cho Seong-hwan of Incheon on the ACL stage “Important game… 100%”
On the 22nd, at the Incheon Soccer Stadium,
a playoff match against Haiphong FC in Vietnam,
Haiphong coach “You can get off and play…
You have to be careful of Hernandez and Gerso”
“It’s an important match. 바카라사이트
I’m going to give 100 per cent.“
Chung-hwan Cho, the coach of Incheon United,
a professional soccer team challenging the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Champions League (ACL) stage for the first time,
declared that he would play the game with the best power.
This was revealed at a press conference held at the Incheon Soccer Stadium on the 21st,
the day before the off season.
Incheon finished 4th last season and entered the ACL for the first time.
If they win against Haiphong in this single game,
they will advance to the long-awaited finals and compete in the group stage.
Especially this year, Incheon celebrates its 20th anniversary,
so ACL is a more precious stage.
However, now I have to play K-League 1 games every week in the scorching heat,
and the physical burden is at its peak.
It seems that you can choose to turn the ‘rotation’ against Haiphong,
which is considered to be one number below.
But Joe said he wouldn’t do that.
“I’ll send the player with the best condition,” he said.
“I will play 100% (3 days after the match against Haiphong) against Suwon FC,
but I am well aware of the importance of this match against Haiphong,
so I will give 100%,” he said.
I can’t not think about it at all,” he said, leaving “room”.
Then, he said, “I will play tomorrow based on players with as much experience as possible,”
suggesting that he would use seniors with ACL experience,
such as center back Oh Ban-seok, in moderation.
The ACL can be both an ‘opportunity’ and a ‘crisis’
for Incheon to head to the international stage.
Incheon is currently in 6th place (37 points),
the last line to advance to Final A in K League 1.
The difference between 7th place Daejeon Hana Citizen and 7 points is 1 point .
Since the ACL has been changed to the Chuchun system from this year,
we have to digest the murderous schedule from K League 1 to ACL group league matches
Coach Cho expressed regret, saying, “If I had earned a lot of points in the regular league (in the first half) and was in a (advantageous) position to advance to the Final A,
I could have expanded the pool (using players), but I couldn’t get as many points as I wanted.”
Regarding Haiphong, he said, “As the level of Vietnamese football has improved, we cannot relax.
As Coach Cho also emphasized that the players should maintain composure on the big stage.
Coach Cho experienced an unfortunate incident in the ACL in the 2017 season when he led Jeju United.
At that time, Jeju lost to Urawa Reds (Japan) in the round of 16 and was eliminated.
Immediately after the last game played on the road,
players from both teams had a rough fight on the ground,
some Jeju players were suspended from qualification for 3 to 6 months.
In response to a reporter’s question about this incident,
Coach Cho laughed awkwardly and said, “I only have good memories with the ACL,
so why do you do that?” You can.
I hope you will keep your composure and play the game.”
On the other hand, Haiphong coach Ju Dinh Nghim cited Incheon’s foreign strikers as a target to be wary of.
He said, “Incheon is a stronger team than the Rangers (Hong Kong) we faced in the preliminary round.
It is difficult to play aggressively like then. Zerso) is particularly fierce.
You have to be vigilant.”
In Hai Phong, Luong Xuan Truong, the Vietnamese national team,
who played 4 games for Incheon in 2018, is playing from this year.
Coach Ju Dinh Nghim said, “I know Truong played for Incheon, but it was a long time ago.
The match between Incheon and Haiphong kicks off at 7:30 pm on the 22nd at the Incheon Soccer Stadium.
