Jeonbuk Hyundai in crisis finds a breakthrough under coach Kim Doo-hyun (41).

Jeonbuk announced on Thursday that it has appointed Kim Doo-hyun as its eighth head coach. Kim Doo-hyun, who played as a top midfielder in the league during his active career, started leading the team by coaching Suwon Samsung in 2020. He then moved to the position of Jeonbuk’s head coach, and when Kim Sang-sik resigned in May last year, he assumed the acting coach position, elevating the team to the mid-ranking position after falling to the relegation zone. His performance as an acting coach was five wins, two draws and one loss.

As Jeonbuk has signed Dan Petrescu, Kim has been serving as the senior coach for Chengdu Chunglong in the Chinese Super League since late last year. Kim returned to Jeonbuk and took on the role of firefighter.

Jeonbuk, which got off to its worst start of the season, is currently in a slump to 10th place (14 points, 2 wins, 5 losses, 6 draws). Jeonbuk has been playing the season under the “acting coach” system of head coach Park Won-jae after Petrescu stepped down due to poor performance in May. It recently escaped from the mire of three consecutive losses with a 3-0 victory over Gwangju FC on the 19th.

“He cited tactical-based team management ability as the most important factor for success in the global soccer paradigm and modern soccer,” Jeonbuk said of its new coach Kim Doo-hyun, adding that it judged Kim Doo-hyun, who is equipped with “smart leadership,” as the best candidate for the team. The fact that he knows Jeonbuk well is a positive assessment. However, there are concerns over whether the new coach, who has no experience, will be able to display leadership at a time when the team is facing a desperate crisis.

“This is a more important time than ever,” new coach Kim said through the club. “I feel grateful and very responsible for giving me the opportunity. I will do my best to regain Jeonbuk’s reputation by devoting everything I can to the results of the faith sent by the club and many others.” 토토사이트

Coach Kim will take the helm of the team from the 15th round of the Hana One Q K League 1 away match against Gangwon FC on the 29th.
