Professional football K League 1 Suwon Samsung showed hope of escaping the relegation zone by winning their first win since the appointment of manager Kim Byung-soo. It is also evaluated that the ‘Byungsoo Ball’, which is released by pass play based on high ball share and mobility, which coach Kim showed when he was coaching Gangwon FC, is already being transplanted to Suwon.
In the 13th round away match against Gangwon on the 13th, Suwon won 2-0 with Han Ho-gang’s header and striker Ahn Byeong-jun’s magical goal. Suwon, the lowest in the league, won their second win of the season with the victory that day, accumulating 8 points (2 wins, 2 draws, 9 losses), narrowing the gap with 11th place Gangwon to 2 points. Above all, it was a meaningful victory in that it changed the atmosphere that could easily deteriorate after a 0-3 loss in the home game against Jeonbuk Hyundai just before the first game after the appointment of coach Kim Byung-soo.
Fans expressed their satisfaction with the improved performance. On the 14th, in the online community of Suwon supporters, there was a line of articles welcoming Suwon, saying that Suwon became a completely different team in two games after Kim took over.
In fact, Suwon showed improvement in the previous day’s game under coach Kim’s guidance. Unlike the Jeonbuk match, when they could not cross the half line, they de-pressurized with passing and receiving, and on the contrary, the opponent’s camp took the ball away with strong pressure, and the game was easily solved. In the 34th minute of the first half, center back Han Ho-gang’s header was scored by fullback Lee Ki-je’s cross, and in the 14th minute of the second half, Ahn Byung-jun scored a goal with a quick mid-range shot from an intercepted ball during the opponent’s build-up process.스포츠토토
Starting with the victory against Gangwon, changes are expected in the future player selection. Although he is 40 this year and has less explosive power than he did in his prime, Yeom Ki-hoon, who is good at link play, is expected to be used. Yeom Ki-hoon, who played 71 minutes, faithfully served as the starting point of the attack based on stable possession of the ball. Coach Kim said in an interview after the game, “The best part is that this player protects the ball. He’s exactly what I wanted,” he raised his head. Han Ho-gang, who seized the opportunity with the accumulated warning against Jeonbuk just before Bullshit, scored a goal against Gangwon and made a mark on coach Kim. Midfielder Koh Seung-beom, who has just returned from injury, will play a pivotal role in the midfield again.
However, as it is a victory against Gangwon, which is in the lower ranks, it is evaluated that the real test is from the next game. Suwon will face league leader Ulsan Hyundai at home on the 21st.
