“Chungbuk Cheongju’s Peter, Jang Hyuk-jin and George are very threatening players. We used a 5-4-1 formation for the first time to suit them. We tried to defend while strengthening the center (midfield), and the players did a good job.”

On the other hand, “when we were attacking, the midfield should have been more aggressive and received (the ball). It was hot, 안전놀이터 so there were some tactical mistakes,” he said.

On the debut performance of forward Jin Sung-wook, who is on loan from Jeju, he said, “I was worried about him, but he showed his worth on the field. He’s just recovered from an injury, and if he can build up his body through training, he’ll be useful to the team.”

“We are looking at players who can play on the flanks with Shadow. We are also talking about central defense, but the existing players are doing a good job.”

Seongnam remained in 10th place with 21 points from five wins, six draws, and seven losses.
