Director Jurgen Klinsmann visits Incheon.
Incheon United and Daegu FC will play the 5th round of ‘Hanawon Q K League 1 2023’ at 4:30 pm on April 1 at the Incheon Soccer Stadium. Incheon is 7th with 1 win, 1 draw and 2 losses (4 points), and Daegu is 6th with 1 win, 2 draws and 1 loss (메이저놀이터5 points).
The K-League took a break from A-match in March and began reorganization. Incheon lost 0-5 against Gwangju FC and Daegu won 2-0 against Jeonbuk Hyundai. Incheon wants to break out of sluggishness, and Daegu wants to continue on the rise.
There was news that could further motivate players in Incheon and Daegu. On the 31st, an official hinted, “The coaching staff of the national team, including coach Klinsman, will visit the Incheon soccer stadium.”
The Klinsmann recently announced its departure through Colombia and Uruguay matches. The convened list was not significantly different from the final list for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. Instead of Hongcheol, Yoon Jong-kyu, and Hwang Hee-chan, who left due to injury, Oh Hyun-gyu and Lee Ki-je joined. In addition, as Kim Jin-soo suffered a back injury in the game against Colombia, Seol Young-woo was selected as a substitute.
Coach Klinsman, who has checked the existing squad through two consecutive matches in South America, moves without a break. Visit the Incheon and Daegu matches this time and observe the K-League. Earlier, coach Klinsman watched FC Seoul vs. Ulsan Hyundai (Seoul World Cup Stadium) and Daegu FC vs. Jeonbuk Hyundai (DGB Daegu Bank Park). This is the third time.
Coincidentally, Incheon and Daegu did not have any players selected from the March A match call. This is the difference from the previous two games. Seoul, Ulsan, and Jeonbuk were expected because they had the national team resources. Through this, director Klinsman’s plan to find a ‘new face’ can be glimpsed.
Taegeuk mark is every athlete’s dream. A very important stage was set for Incheon and Daegu players.
