Spring has come when the cherry blossoms are blooming, but Jeonbuk Hyundai in the K-League 1 (Part 1) is bleak.

Jeonbuk lost 1-2 in the home game against Pohang Steelers in the 5th round of ‘Hanawon Q K League 1 2023’ held at Jeonju World Cup Stadium on the 1st. Jeonbuk, who caught Gwangju FC in the 3rd round and reported their first win of the season, lost 0-2 in an away match against Daegu FC in the 4th round, and took a gloomy A match break. bowed down With only 1 win, 1 draw and 3 losses, they fell into a deep pit with 4 points.

An all-out war was necessary, but the situation did not allow it. Jeonbuk sent the most national teams to Colombia and Uruguay in two consecutive matches in March. However, during the call-up period for the national team, left fullback Kim Jin-soo suffered a lumbar injury and was forced to leave for at least six weeks, while Baek Seung-ho complained of a hamstring problem. Striker Cho Kyu-seong also suffered a calf injury.

Amano Jun and Dongjun Lee made a comeback after recovering from injuries, but a change in the squad was inevitable. Jung Woo-jae took the place of Kim Jin-soo, and Ryu Jae-moon and Hapa Silva replaced Baek Seung-ho and Cho Kyu-seong. Prior to the match against Pohang, Jeonbuk coach Kim Sang-sik said, “All available resources have been released. He ordered us to play a game where we do not lose at home.”

However, there was no heat in the living room at ‘Jeonju Castle’, which was visited by 12,000 spectators. Right after the players entered the stadium, the home fans launched an unprecedented cheering boycott. This is because of the poor performance and results after the opening. Secretariat’s move to avoid skinship with fans also brought disappointment. Placards with phrases condemning Jeonbuk CEO Heo Byeong-gil and coach Kim were hung all over the stadium, and there were endless calls to “get out”.

In the 16th minute of the first half, Ryu Jae-moon’s shot, which received a pass from Song Min-gyu, hit the Pohang defense and led to the opening goal, but it was quiet. Instead, the names of former coaches such as Choi Kang-hee and coach Jose Morais, and former general managers such as Lee Chul-geun and Baek Seung-kwon echoed whenever they had spare time.스포츠토토

Contrary to Jeonbuk, who could not smile even after scoring, the visiting team received great support. Eventually, Pohang Baekseong-dong scored an equalizer in the 12th minute of the second half. Even at the end of the second half when the score was 1-1, Jeonbuk suffered. Central defender Park Jin-seop was taken to the hospital with a blow to the head while battling the Pohang goalkeeper for an aerial ball.

After the game, coach Kim said, “Three losses out of five matches are difficult results for Jeonbuk to accept. As a manager, I feel unlimited responsibility,” he lowered his head, but could not avoid the humiliation of the squad bus being blocked by angry fans.
