Pohang Coach Kim Ki-dong "Participating in the ACL on Behalf of the K League... I am Happy and Proud"

Multi-goal Kim In-seong “We will continue the good atmosphere in the league”

Kim Ki-dong, coach of the Pohang Steelers, who achieved their first win in the group stage of the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Champions League (ACL), said, "I am happy and proud to participate in the ACL as the coach of a club representing the K-League."

Pohang won 4-2 over Hanoi FC in the first leg of Group J of the 2023-2024 AFC ACL group stage held at My Dinh National Stadium in Hanoi, Vietnam on the 20th, led by Jeka's 'help hat trick' and Kim In-seong's multiple goals. 토토사이트

Pohang coach Kim Ki-dong said at a press conference after the game, "I thought the away game would be difficult, but I didn't expect the first goal to be scored."

He continued, "I think it was an advantageous situation as we were able to score a lot of points in the first half and rotate to prepare for the next game."

Coach Kim said, “We gave Hanoi a lot of chances in the first half, especially two decisive chances,” and evaluated, “Afterwards, the players came to their senses and showed signs of becoming more solid.”

On this day, Pohang managed to block a shot by Hanoi's Nguyen Van Quiet in the 13th minute of the first half with Park Chan-yong's close defense at the goal line, and three minutes later, Pham Tuan Hai's sharp header was barely deflected by goalkeeper Hwang In-jae.

Pohang Steelers made it 4-0 with Kim In-seong's multi-goal in the 4th minute of the second half and then conceded twice to Hanoi in the second half.

Coach Kim Ki-dong said, “Situations like this often arise when playing soccer.

“When we are winning, we show up once or twice when we become lazy, and it inevitably leads to conceding goals,” he said, adding, “We are constantly communicating with the players,” and pledged, “We will prepare to play without ups and downs to become an even stronger team.”

In the first game of the ACL group stage, four K-League teams, including Jeonbuk Hyundai and Pohang, emerged victorious, following Ulsan Hyundai and Incheon United the day before.

Regarding this, coach Kim Ki-dong said, "There is the Taegeukgi at the top of the uniform, and underneath it is the club emblem.

Before the game, it is an opportunity to inform the players of the status of Korean soccer as they represent a Korean professional club, and to play the game with pride."

“I did,” he said.

Kim In-seong, who scored multiple goals, said, “I want to continue the good atmosphere in the league and help in the fight for the rankings.”

He added, "I went into the game with the mindset of representing the K-League, and I'm happy that all the K-League teams won and showed a strong performance in the first game."
