Dakgong returned with cheers and shouts, Jeonbuk’s rebound began
For a long time, ‘Orele’ rang out in Jeonju Castle.
Jeonbuk Hyundai played Suwon FC’s Hana 1 Q K League 1 2023 Round 14 at Jeonju World Cup Stadium on the 21st. The supporter, who refused to cheer for the resignation of the former head coach amid poor performance this season, broke the long silence and cheered. In the presence of 13,634 spectators, the names of the players were loudly chanted and cheering songs were sung to their heart’s content. Starting with Baek Seung-ho’s opening goal in the 7th minute of the first half, Song Min-gyu in the 8th minute and Park Jin-seop’s goal in the 38th minute of the second half, Jeonbuk’s trademark O’Orele filled the stadium. At the end of the game, there was even a wave of cheering to enjoy victory. The result was a 3-1 win. For the first time this season, they scored three goals and won at home.
During difficult times, Jeonbuk players always had to run with a heavy heart. Athletes cheer on their backs and exert their strength. The ignorance of the supporters who create the stadium atmosphere was also painful for the Jeonbuk team.
The mood has changed now. Jeonbuk is looking for stability in the system of acting manager Kim Doo-hyun. All of the previous three matches were played away, but with 1 win and 2 draws, they recovered their strength not to lose. Then, in the home room, he succeeded in scoring multiple points and won coolly. Acting Kim is leading Jeonbuk’s rebound with a four-game undefeated record, managing the team in crisis.
What is more positive than the result is the content and performance of the game. Recently, unlike the beginning of the season, Jeonbuk has been playing with the best 11 fixed to some extent. The combination was so different that the feet that did not match disappeared, and the fast pass tempo play and aggressive tactics that Acting Kim pursued are also settling. Compared to the beginning, the completeness of partial tactics and pattern play is definitely increasing. On this day, 14 shots were attempted, and Jeonbuk took a big lead in ball possession with 64% vs. 36%.스포츠토토
It is also good news for Jeonbuk that the injured are also returning one after another. In the game that day, striker Cho Kyu-seong, who had been out of power due to a calf injury in March, returned and played full-time. Song Min-gyu, who suffered an ankle injury, also returned and scored the winning goal.
With 3 points, Jeonbuk placed 7th with 18 points. It still corresponds to Final B, but now the gap with the top ranks has narrowed noticeably. It is a 6-point gap between 2nd place FC Seoul and 3rd place Jeju United (above 24 points), allowing them to catch up in two games. Considering that the season has just entered the middle of the season, you can always chase it. Although it is far from the lead Ulsan Hyundai (37 points), it is creating an atmosphere of rebound by escaping from the extreme sluggishness at the beginning of the season.
Acting Kim is breathing a sigh of relief at the changed air. He said, “The fans created the atmosphere. It seems Jeonbuk is back. He attacked hotly,” he said. “I emphasize positioning to the players. The ball should circulate quickly when it is positioned where it should be. That way, the opponent becomes difficult and our players can do it comfortably. The players seem to have fun and feel a sense of accomplishment. It is encouraging,” he said, expressing satisfaction.
