“The coach gave us autonomy in the meeting and didn’t make the atmosphere heavy. I was surprised by that, and I think the players recognized that and prepared well, so I think that’s why they showed up on the field.” 메이저놀이터
There was also talk about being eliminated from the national team. “Honestly, I’d be lying if I said I didn’t have expectations. I had high expectations and was disappointed, but I didn’t have time to dwell on it. I had to play with my heart. I realized that I am a very happy and loved player. There were fans of other teams who said they were disappointed. Our fans were definitely disappointed. I felt loved, and I’m going to do my best to be grateful,” he said.
When asked if being eliminated from the national team motivated him for this match, he said, “I always have motivation. I came to this team to win a lot of trophies. I think the national team is a bonus. If you do your best, you can go there or not. This year, my goal is to win as many titles as possible.”
“I need to score more goals on the pitch, and if I can integrate the coach’s instructions into the team, I think I’ll be seen better from the outside. I think good things will happen if we focus on this team.”
“When I was in Ulsan, I was with (Park) Joo-ho, and he was the vice captain, and I thought that if I became a senior, I would like to be like him. It was sad to see him retire. I’m sure whatever path he takes will be good. I always supported him and thanked him for his hard work.”
