Jeju United Brazilian striker Yuri Jonathan gave a thumbs up to coach Kim Hak-beom’s physical training.

Jeju won 1-0 thanks to Union Jonathan’s winning goal in the 25th minute of the second half in the sixth round of the Hana One Q K League 1 2024 away match against Incheon United at Incheon Football Stadium on the 6th.

Jeju had one win and four losses against Incheon in the recent five games, displaying strong potential to snatch Incheon, which is lagging far behind the latter in away matches. Thanks to the win, Jeju increased its score point to 10 (three wins, one draw and two losses), jumping to fourth place.

The player who led the team was Yuri who scored the winning goal. As soon as the second half started, Yuri came in as a substitute, grabbed the second ball that was blocked by the goalkeeper’s defense in the 25th minute of the second half, and hit his third goal of the season as he shook the Incheon net with a powerful right footed shot.

Yuri, who was selected as a coach after the game and attended the press conference, said, “It was burdensome because the team called Incheon was strong at home, solid defense, and fast counterattack,” adding, “Fortunately, I’m happy to overcome such a situation and win.”

Yuri, who joined Jeju since last year and finished the 2023 season, which was her K-League debut season, with 33 games, 10 goals and 4 assists, drew attention by confessing that her physical condition seems to have improved thanks to the physical training of the new head coach Kim Hak-beom.

First of all, regarding head coach Kim, Yuri said, “I didn’t know (Kim Hak-beom), but I got to know him well through this physical training,” adding, “I think I lost a lot of weight during the training period and my physical condition has become lighter.”

“I think physical training is an important factor in soccer, so (coach Kim Hak-beom’s physical training) helped the players take one step further,” he said. “We can score goals even when we are tired in the second half, including today’s goal.”

He also said, “Of course, it was difficult because I had physical training for a long time, but I was surprised to think that the results were coming out little by little.” 고소득알바

“I think I did well in the first year. I think I’m adapting well this season because I’m well aware of how the K-League is going and the styles of the K-League and other teams,” he said. “I want to score more goals to put Jeju at the top.”

Yuri led the team to a 3-1 victory in the home opener against Daejeon Hana Citizen in the second round, scoring multiple goals on penalties. After four games, she scored and once again gave Jeju three points to lead her team’s first consecutive victory.
