If the grades are good, I’d like to appoint him as a starter.”
Choi Won-kwon, head coach of Daegu FC. He is a talented and capable disciple, but due to the team situation, he was mixed with regret that he could not be appointed longer and expectations for the future. This is a story about Park Se-jin (19).
Daegu won 2-0 with consecutive goals from Park Se-jin and Ko Jae-hyun in the Hana 1 Q K-League 1 2023 round 13 match against Gwangju FC held at the Gwangju Soccer Stadium on the 13th. Daegu, who accumulated 3 points, made 17 points by taking their 4th win of the season.
On this day, Daegu took off all the cars and started the game. Cesingya and Edgar were excluded from the list due to injuries, and Keita, who scored a goal against the Pohang Steelers just before, was also absent. The Brazilian foreign duo Serato and Baselus waited on the bench, and coach Choi put forward a domestic striker consisting of Lee Geun-ho, Kim Young-jun and Ko Jae-hyun.
Midfielder Park Se-jin also stood on the ground as a starter. It was the 4th start of the season for ‘rookie’ Park Se-jin, who wore the Daegu uniform this season. Park Se-jin used to step on the ground as a substitute, but started scoring in two consecutive matches following the last match against Pohang.
It was a goal with outstanding스포츠토토 technique. In the 18th minute of the second half, Park Se-jin shook the net with a quick shot from the left side of the penalty box, handed by Hong-cheol. It was his own professional debut goal. In the 21st minute of the second half, Park Se-jin was involved in Ko Jae-hyeon’s additional goal. After Basellus caught the ball, he passed two defenders and went up to the Gwangju camp. Park Se-jin received the ball and stabbed a pass to Lee Jin-yong, who was penetrating into the back space. Lee Jin-yong passed the pass to Ko Jae-hyeon, who was positioned near the penalty arc, and Ko Jae-hyeon completed it.
He was active in defense as well as offense. In the opponent’s counterattack situation, he slowed down the counterattack tempo while defending the Gwangju player until the end. Park Se-jin, who ran the ground throughout the offense and defense, was replaced by Serato in the 39th minute of the second half.
Although it is a resource under the age of U22, Park Se-jin’s utilization method is quite different from other U22 cards. He is not replaced after being appointed at the beginning of the game, but put in to reverse the atmosphere in the second half. Of the 10 games he played in all season, more than half of them were six.
Director Choi also highly valued Park Se-jin’s talent. He said, “I have to grow, and he is a capable player. he has great talent In particular, his offensive talent is superior. Just like Hwang Jae-won did last season, Se-jin came into the team well this time. He is a talent enough to be used as a starter.”
At the same time, he said, “It is not the grade we want yet, so we have no choice but to write it conservatively. If the grades are good, I want to use it as a starter,” he said. From the second round robin, I plan to use him as a starter.”
This is the reason why Park Se-jin’s presence, a ‘rookie’ who appeared in the crisis of chapo’s departure, shines even more.
