Director Kim Ki-dong remembers the victory against Suwon before his debut “Like (Kim) Seung-dae four years ago… 

Like four years ago, (안전놀이터Kim) Seung-dae… ”

The Pohang Steelers, led by coach Kim Ki-dong, will face off against Suwon Samsung in the 9th round of the ‘Hanawon Q K League 1 2023’ at Pohang Steel Yard on the 25th. Pohang is running the only undefeated K-League 1 with 4 wins and 4 draws in 8 matches.

Pohang started a partial rotation that day. In the 8th round, Ulsan Hyundai played the ‘East Coast Derby’. After leading 2-0, they conceded two goals to draw. Lee Ho-jae will make the first selection, and Cho Jae-hoon, an under-22 (U-22) resource, will appear on the right flank. Youngjun Koh starts from the bench.

Coach Kim met with reporters before the game and said, “The burden is the same. Suwon, who is on the away road, will be more burdensome,” but “we are also psychologically anxious (by drawing two games). so be careful It is also a part where concentration can be lost after playing a big game. I can’t concentrate on all 38 games. I also considered physical strength, but if my physical strength isn’t good, my body won’t keep up. It made a difference,” he said.

The 23rd is the 4th anniversary of the appointment of coach Kim. Coach Kim took office on April 23, 2019, and three days later, on the 26th, he played the 9th round against Suwon Samsung at home. At that time, Kim Seung-dae’s winning goal gave Pohang a 1-0 victory. It was raining then, and it is raining at the Steel Yard today as well. Compared to that time, only the date is one day ahead. Manager Kim said, “At that time, Seungdae scored with a kick. So he made it as a starter,” he laughed and said, “Te for the win said to score two goals. It should be a story only if this fits… ” he said.
