“There was a physical hump at the end, and I feel like we couldn’t get over it.” After suffering their first defeat in the group stage of the 2023-2024 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Champions League, Ulsan Hyundai head coach Hong Myung-bo blamed “physical strength” for the loss .Hong’s side fell 1-0 to Kawasaki Frontale in the second leg of their Group I tie at the Todoroki Athletic Stadium in Kawasaki, Japan, on Wednesday, conceding a 44th-minute goal .After a 3-1 win over BG Pathum United (Thailand) in the first leg, Ulsan struggled to create chances against Kawasaki, last year’s J-League 1 runners-up. “In the end, we lost the game, but overall, it went according to plan,” said Hong, who spoke at the post-match press conference.” There was a hump in the players’ stamina at the end, and we couldn’t get over it.” “Our defensive balance was not good, so we had a gap, and that’s where our organization was lacking in the moment,” he said .When asked about the lack of forward pressure, Hong said, “We basically aim to defend in the midfield area rather than forward pressure,” adding, “In general, I think we did a good job in the central area.” “We focus on preventing the ball from penetrating into the defensive area as much as possible,” he said. “We will forget about today’s game and prepare well for the weekend’s K League 1 match,” said Hong. “The last game of the group stage (Dec. 12) is a home match against Kawasaki. It is important to keep the experience 카지노사이트 from this game and prepare well.”
