Bucheon FC 1995 striker Han Ji-ho is a playoff (PO) expert. He experienced PO in a total of seven seasons in his long playing career. This season, I have a strong will to go to the end for promotion with Bucheon.
Han Ji-ho met with at the 2023 K-League Winter Field Training Media Camp held at Samsung Hotel in Geoje, Gyeongsangnam-do on the 13th and said, “I always ran (PO) except when I was in the army. Even if I couldn’t do it, I went to the playoffs. I want to try again this year. I have a desire to compete with a K League 1 team.”
Thirty-four this year. He debuted in 2010 and is in his 14th year as a professional soccer player this year, and has been in PO for a total of seven seasons. Six times at his former team, Busan I-Park, and once at Bucheon in the 2022 season. That’s how I know how intense the journey towards promotion is.
Han Ji-ho said, “Attitude is important. Last season, I seemed to be relaxed because I set goals in the middle. I think I will be able to spend a good year if I go into the season with the mindset that I can prove my worth as a player.” 온라인카지노
Bucheon succeeded in advancing to the K-League 2 semi-playoffs by finishing 5th in the league last season, but was caught by Gyeongnam FC and failed to move up one level.
Although he is the oldest in the team, the captain’s armband is worn by Kim Ho-nam, who is a year younger. Han Ji-ho said, “It’s better not to (claim). I almost retired when I played in Busan. I was promoted, but as a player, many things were difficult.”
He continued, “Until last year (Kim) Ho-jun had a brother, so there was a part of me that I leaned on even when the team was having a hard time, but it’s the first time I’ve been in that position. I’m not used to how to give advice to juniors. There is a part of it,” he added.
Kaz was picked as a notable player. Kaz is a midfielder from Japan who has been through Europe, and wore a Bucheon uniform this winter. Han Ji-ho said, “Unlike a Japanese player, Kaz plays a lot of defense. He plays with dedication for the team. I think his performance will depend on how much Kaz does.”
