Jeju United coach Ki-il Nam joked that Brazilian players like Yuri Jonatan only do well when the weather is warm.
In the Hana 1 Q K League 1 2023 Round 14 away match against FC Seoul held at the Seoul World Cup Stadium on the 20th, Jeju failed to keep Jonathan’s opening goal from the second half and drew 1-1.
Jeju, which added 1 point, recorded 7 wins, 3 draws and 4 losses, the same as Seoul with 24 points, but remained in 3rd place with 7 goals behind. The winning streak was stopped at 5.
In an interview after the game, head coach Nam Ki-il said that he was satisfied with the result, as if considering the difficult expedition.
Coach Nam said, “It was a game where we could continue the good flow. The defense was good, and we were able to win enough.”
Jeju’s goalkeeper Kim Dong-jun collided with Seoul’s Shin-jin Kim during the conceding scene and made the mistake of missing the ball. Kim Dong-jun claimed a foul, but the referee did not accept it and declared a goal.
Director Nam said, “I didn’t see it up close, but when I watched it from a distance, it looked like the opponent’s feet came in and waited a little bit.”
On this day, manager Nam put Yuri Jonatan in place of Hayes at the beginning of the second half. Jonathan scored the opening goal in the 33rd minute of the second half after receiving a pass from Ahn Hyun-beom. It was the moment when Director Nam’s mercenary skills hit the mark.
Manager Nam was satisfied, saying, “Jonatan is going through a phase of adapting to the K-League little by little,” and “It seems that his abilities are showing up little by little.”토스카지노
“The weather is getting hotter these days, but Brazilian players (like Jonathan) seem to do better when the weather gets warmer,” he joked, adding, “I will increase my playing time in the future so that I can adapt well.”
Starting with the FA Cup round of 16 against Daejeon Hana Citizen during the week, Jeju will play three home matches.
Coach Nam said, “There are many players who have returned from injury, players who are thirsty, and players who can give them a chance. I think I will do it,” he predicted the rotation.
