“A coach should always take off his clothes if he is not performing well.”
Ulsan Hyundai, led by head coach Hong Myung-bo, will face Daegu FC in the 25th round of the Hana OneQ K League 1 2023 on Friday at DGB Daegu Bank Park. With 56 points, Ulsan remains in first place. They remain within double digits of the second-place Pohang Steelers (45 points). 먹튀검증
Hong signed a new three-year contract with Ulsan. “I don’t know how it will affect the team,” Hong said. I did it during the season because the club was considerate. I’m grateful. I feel more responsible and have to work harder.” “It’s important for a coach to have enough time. I don’t think the length of the contract is meaningless. You may not be able to fulfill it. When you have a plan or a scheme, there are things you can develop slowly and gradually. And if it’s too short, you have to focus on results. I think it’s good that the director’s name and cancer exist together. If you don’t perform well at any time, you have to take off your own clothes,” he emphasized.
Ulsan has scored three goals in both meetings with Daegu this season. They won 3-0 and 3-1. Furthermore, the temperature in Daegu is expected to be over 40°C. The heat could be a factor. Hong said, “The heat will be difficult for all teams. I think it’s the same conditions. The players will have to run, so it will be harder,” Hong said.
Hong took charge of Team K League in a friendly against Atletico Madrid (ATM) last month, with only Seol Young-woo playing full time. “I was actually worried. Injuries are quite costly to the team. I decided to play 45 minutes regardless of whether we win or lose, but Timo (Sukhoe FC) couldn’t play. Seol Young-woo missed the previous league game, so he was physically fit. He was able to play 90 minutes, even though it wasn’t his best position.”
