‘Hoping for Lee Keun-ho', Kim Jin-soo.

The media day for the final round of the Hana OneQ K League 1 2023 was held at the Nine Tree Premier Locus Hotel in Yongsan, Seoul on the 18th. Managers and players from the six clubs in the Final A were present. Ulsan Hyundai head coach Hong Myung-bo and Kim Ki-hee, Pohang Steelers head coach Kim Ki-dong and Kim Seung-dae, Gwangju FC head coach Lee Jung-hyo and Ahn Young-gyu, Jeonbuk Hyundai head coach Valeriu and Kim Jin-soo, Daegu FC head coach Choi Won-kwon and Lee Geun-ho, Incheon United head coach Cho Sung-hwan and Oh Ban-seok attended. Jeonbuk coach Dan Petrescu was unable to attend due to illness. In particular, 120 fans attended the event. The coaches and players made a proud entrance in front of their fans, shouting “Go!”.

Lee Geun-ho was in the spotlight the most. Lee recently announced his retirement after this season. Lee began his professional career with Incheon United in 2004, shortly after graduating from Bupyeong High School in Incheon. In 2007, he moved to Daegu, where he hit his soccer peak. In two seasons, he scored 23 goals and nine assists in 59 games and earned his first senior national team call-up. He went on to play for Jubilo Iwata and Gamba Osaka in the J-League before returning to the K League Ulsan Hyundai in 2012 to resolve military issues, followed by stints with Sangju Sangsang (military service), El Jaish (Qatar), Jeonbuk, Jeju, Gangwon, and Ulsan before returning to Daegu in 2021 after 13 years. For Lee, Daegu is his “second home” where he opened a new chapter in soccer with the title of “Son of the Sun”.

Kim Jin-soo was very sad to see Lee retire. Kim Jin-soo worked with Lee Geun-ho for a long time in the national team. Kim Jin-su mentioned Lee Geun-ho as a servant. “I want to beat Daegu, and since he has a few games left, I picked Daegu because I want to play with him for the last time because he's a senior,” Kim said. He continued, “I want Daegu to lose, so I think it will be a great memory for him,” which made Lee Geun-ho smile.

Lee received a big gift from each of the team managers on the day. He received coaching tips. Coach Cho Sung-hwan said, “We are recruiting over 35-year-olds, and it's a shame that he retired without consulting us. We played together in Jeju. His leadership is good in all aspects. His qualities as a leader are good enough. If he wins the P, 바카라사이트 he will be a leader who will threaten our position.” Coach Lee Jung-hyo said, “It is important to establish your own color. Your character must be clear. Don't look like me in the interview.”

Coach Kim Ki-dong said, “If I thought about retiring, I would have already prepared a leader. I would have been organized. You have your own philosophy while studying to be a leader. I wish I had listened to advice from all sides.” Director Hong Myung Bo said, “You don't know if you're going to be a leader or an entertainer, but when you become a leader, you've learned from many leaders. There will be a way that sticks in your head. You have to follow it. There's inspiration from being a player. If you combine the two, studying as a coach and finding your own color, I think you will become a good leader.”
