Hwang Seon-hong, new head coach of Daejeon Hana Citizen

Coach Hwang Seon-hong, who took charge of Daejeon Hana Citizens of the K-League 1 professional soccer team again after four years, said that he was still heartbroken over the failure to qualify for the Olympics, but decided to stand up again.

Coach Hwang Seon-hong said at the inauguration press conference held at the Daejeon World Cup Stadium on the afternoon of the 5th, “I think this is the most important part: whether to stay down or get back up again.

He said, “At this point, the most important thing is to believe in yourself and try again. Should I fight or give up? I chose the former. I will never give up and fight until the end.”

Just before taking charge of Daejeon, Coach Hwang led the U-23 national team in an attempt to qualify for the 2024 Paris Olympics, but experienced failure.

Coach Hwang, who seemed to be facing a major crisis in his career as a coach due to the stigma of having broken the trend of Korean soccer advancing to the Olympics, which had continued for nine consecutive games, reappeared in front of soccer fans as the head coach of Daejeon. 파워볼사이트

Coach Hwang said, “I feel very sorry for the fans who supported me and the athletes who were unable to experience the Olympics. When I think about that time, my heart aches and hurts. It’s very complicated.”

Coincidentally, the team that coach Hwang led just before entering the Korea Football Association in September 2021 and taking charge of the age-group national team is Daejeon.

Coach Hwang, who was officially appointed as the head coach along with the re-establishment of Daejeon in January 2020, stepped down after eight months as the team, which had increased the amount of investment, failed to increase its chances of promotion even after mid-season and struggled to stay in third place.

Coach Hwang expressed his aspirations, saying, “I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the club officials who chose me once again. With a desperate heart, I will use all my capabilities to quickly overcome this crisis and allow the team to return to normal.”

He added, “I thought about it a lot. If it weren’t for Daejeon, I don’t think I would have chosen it. As a coach (at the time), there were a lot of things I was quite disappointed in. This is a team I always supported with my heart and wanted to be with.”

In 16 games this season, they only accumulated 14 points with 3 wins, 5 draws, and 8 losses, falling to 11th place, and their recent ranking appears to be stuck.

Daejeon, which first fell to last place at the end of March, only rose to 9th place once and stayed in 10th to 12th place for the rest of the year.

Coach Hwang said, “I am here with the desire to overcome this crisis as a coach. I believe that this is an opportunity to lay the foundation for Daejeon to become a top team, which was the goal when Daejeon was founded.” He added, “The most urgent issue is getting out of the relegation zone. “He emphasized.

Coach Hwang, who was a representative striker representing Korea during his playing days, started as a coach at Busan I’Park in 2008, and led Pohang since 2011, achieving the feat of winning two titles in the regular league and the Korea Football Association Cup (FA Cup) in 2013.

He has emerged as a great player representing the K-League, giving Pohang 99 league wins and 3 trophies (1 regular league, 2 FA Cups) in 5 years. He led the team to win the K-League 1 once again as manager of FC Seoul in 2016. . Following 2013, he became the K League 1 Manager Award winner that year as well. 한국야동
