Jeju United defender Ahn Hyun-beom (29) showed a truly ‘crazy’ chidal.
Ahn Hyun-beom played full-time as a starting right defender in the away game against FC Seoul in the 14th round of the ‘Hana 1 Q K League 1 2023’ held at the Seoul World Cup Stadium on the 20th. Ahn Hyun-beom helped Yuri’s equalizer in the 33rd minute of the second half, but the light faded as he conceded five minutes later. Jeju’s 5-game winning streak came to an end when they drew 1-1 with Seoul.
After the game, Ahn Hyun-beom said, “We played well as we intended against a strong team called Seoul. It’s just a pity that he couldn’t keep one goal. He was pushed back a lot in the second half and he thinks he has nothing to say even if he loses. I am satisfied and fortunate to have won 1 point in the away game,” he said.
Ahn Hyun-beom broke through alone in the 33rd minute of the second half using his explosive speed. Seoul’s Ki Sung-yong and Kim Joo-sung were knocked out one after another, and Yuri’s goal was linked with his cross. Ahn Hyun-beom said, “You have to be born to be fast. He was quick from birth. I was well aware of that, so I tried to take advantage of his strengths. I am quite satisfied because the end of my continued attempts has been successful,” he laughed.
There is also a story behind this situation. Coach Nam Ki-il tried to replace Ahn Hyun-beom, who was physically exhausted. Ahn Hyun-beom said, “I was so disappointed that I said to the coach, ‘I can do it’ and ‘Please let me play a little more’. After saying that, he immediately offered help. Even the coach said, ‘If he had been replaced, he would have been in big trouble’. I was relieved, saying, “It was very difficult to play full-time consecutively, but I was a little greedy.” 스포츠토토
Finally, the striker converted his assist into a goal. Ahn Hyun-beom has 20 goals and 20 assists and now has only 3 assists left. Ahn Hyun-beom has been creating chances throughout this season, but he expressed regret that the strikers’ shots missed every time. He said, “I said a word to all the strikers. You have to make it like this. I try to use my strengths to help my teammates. I was desperate, but it was not easy for Yuri, but I finished well.” “The moment I scored, my eyes met with Yuri. It was so hard that I sat down. I don’t even know who came after that.”
Ahn Hyun-beom, an aggressive fullback, is a resource worthy of being called up to the national soccer team. Head coach Jurgen Klinsmann has an A-match ahead of him in June. Ahn Hyun-beom said, “I hope someone will tell me to be tricked (by coach Klinsman) and ask me to pick him up once.” Wasn’t it chosen because it had different strengths from others? I want to show my ability,” he said with strength.
