‘Hwang Seon-hong’s return match’ draw

“It was positive to see the team not give up until the end and participate in the game.”

Coach Hwang Seon-hong, who returned to Daejeon Hana Citizen, which had fallen into the relegation zone, said this after the return game.

Daejeon drew 1-1 thanks to Pohang’s own goal in the 17th round away game of Hana One Q K League 1 2024 held at Pohang Steel Yard on the 15th.

It is not a bad result for Coach Hwang, who was appointed as Daejeon head coach on the 3rd and played his first game that day.

Pohang is a championship team ranked 3rd, and Daejeon was in 11th place before today’s game. With the draw that day, Daejeon rose one place to 10th place.

Coach Hwang said, “We need to continue to improve the technical aspects, and I think highly of the desire to play the game without giving up until the end and to show that we work harder for the fans who came from far away.” He added, “We must somehow overcome this crisis with our players.” “I will overcome it well,” he said.

Of course, it was a game in which Coach Hwang would have seen many more problems.

Daejeon had ‘0’ shots in the first half. While Pohang had 10 shots in 90 minutes, Daejeon had only 2.

Daejeon’s goal was scored by Pohang Lee Dong-hee’s own goal in the 14th minute of the first half.

Coach Hwang said, “There have been cases in the past where I lose the ball easily after winning it, and there were many of them today as well. I need to improve,” and added, “I hope I can play with more confidence. Even though I am in the bottom half of the rankings, I need to be able to focus on my play.” He said.

He continued, “I see shortcomings in many areas, but we can make enough improvements. We can get better,” and added, “It’s not just the player’s problem. It’s not just the coach’s problem. We’ll make it happen together.”

Coach Hwang took over as the first head coach after Daejeon was converted to a corporate club when Daejeon was in the K-League 2 (Second Division), but resigned from his position in September 2020 due to poor performance.

Meanwhile, Pohang’s coach Park Tae-ha, who showed a poor performance in the home game again, bowed his head and said, “It is a situation where we cannot manage the points at home,” and added, “I think we need to take this situation seriously overall.”

After winning against Jeonbuk Hyundai on May 4, Pohang had only 3 draws in 3 home games.

There are only three wins at home this season, including against Jeonbuk. Pohang recorded 5 of their 8 wins away from home.

Coach Park laughed and said, “I need to meet with the players. I think we need time to talk, whether they are good players or bad players.” He added, “I’m not going to scold you for that.” 섯다
