Vice Chairman Han said, “As one of the executives of the Korea Football Association, I would like to apologize to the fans.”
“Apart from the results of the game, seeing the players who play the main role in the K-League are being carried away with injuries one after another, and I feel skeptical about what we will gain from this game, and at the same time, I sincerely apologize for the fact that the game went like this. I will tell you,” he said.
The Korean Asian Games (U-24) team led by coach Hwang Seon-hong had an evaluation match against the Chinese Asian Games team at Jinhua Stadium in Hangzhou on the 15th and 19th.
Hwang Seon-hong, who had adapted to the field by recording 1 win and 1 loss in two games, heard the voice of criticism.
Above all, key players are injured, so not only Hwang Sun-Hong-Ho, but also the K-League teams whose season is in progress are in an emergency.
Eom Won-sang (Ulsan Hyundai), who injured ligaments in his right ankle in the first game, returned home the next day with a half cast. He is expected to have a fairly lengthy rehabilitation period.
In the second game, Koh Young-jun (Pohang Steelers) suffered a knee injury and Cho Young-wook (Kim Cheon Sang-mu) suffered a shoulder injury.
Coach Hwang Seon-hong emphasized again after the game, “It’s a pity that there are so many injured,” and said, “I hope it’s not a big injury.”
However, coach Hwang’s remarks, saying, “Time lag, rough play, and defensive situations can occur in soccer, and they can also occur in the Asian Games, so adapting to those things is positive.”
There was no protest from the manager or the bench despite China’s rough play, more than unsportsmanlike play. It was regrettable that there was no action to protect the team players.
Moreover, in terms of what vice president Han said, “I feel skeptical about players leaving due to injuries,” it also means that this evaluation match did not simply leave for local adaptation.
The league is in progress right now, and they are players who will be used in the Asian Games, but it is a big loss to Hwang Seon-Hong-Ho for his skills to drop due to injuries.
Coach Hwang, who said in an interview on his return, “I didn’t know it would come out so rough,” said that now until the final call in September, the process of identifying the players and selecting wild cards remains.
