Gangwon FC head coach Choi Yong-soo is looking메이저놀이터 to revitalize ace Kim Dae-won, who has struggled this season.

Gangwon conceded a late goal to Willian in a 0-1 loss to Seoul in the 15th round of the Hana One Q K League 2023 at Seoul World Cup Stadium on Monday. Gangwon remained in 11th place with two wins, five draws and eight losses and 11 points. Seoul moved into second place with eight wins, three draws, and four losses and 27 points.

After giving Seoul the lead from the start, Gangwon conceded a goal to Willian in the 28th minute to fall behind 0-1.

After receiving the ball near the center line, Willian tried to break through on his own, and two defenders followed him but were unable to stop him. Willian folded inward and hit a right-footed shot that split the goal.

Gangwon continued to push for a goal. They made changes, bringing on Lee Jung-hyeop, who returned from injury, and foreign striker Gallego. However, no goals came. In the end, Willian’s goal proved to be the winning goal and Gangwon had to accept defeat.

After the game, head coach Choi Yong-soo said, “We conceded a goal in the first half. I think we lost because we couldn’t control their buildup from the beginning. Due to the midweek game, our physical strength decreased and we lost our concentration. It’s unfortunate, but we have to forget about it quickly and prepare for the next match. It’s really unfortunate, but it can’t be helped.”

As for Lee Jung-hyeop, who came on as a substitute in the first half, he said, “In the first half, we seemed to be pushed back by the opposing defense in ball-keeping and linking. We couldn’t approach the second line because we couldn’t protect the ball. I thought Lee Jung-hyeop was getting fitter and fitter, so I put him on early.”

Gangwon hasn’t scored in its last five league games. “We need to find a scoring route that we can turn around even if we concede,” Choi said of the offense. We also need to find confidence. If we don’t score, we can’t get the results we want. That’s the biggest problem.”

Regarding Kim Dae-won, who had a good performance last season with 12 goals and 13 assists, but has been slumping this year, he said, “I would have to say that his confidence has dropped a little bit,” but added, “He is our ace. It’s my job to utilize him well and make him a plus for the team. I need to play a little more boldly, but I’m disappointed with those things.”

Finally, he said, “I’m still thinking about the point that we were able to figure out the counterattack. We were a bit defensive in the first half and tried to win the game in the second half, but the first goal forced us to change our strategy,” he said, adding, “I think we can be a bit more aggressive once the players regain their confidence.”
