“The director said life is short anyway, so it’s important to do it with a happy mind. I think it’s right to do my best while enjoying it.”

Pohang Steelers came from behind to beat Daejeon Hana Citizen 2-1 in the sixth round of the “Hana Bank K League 1 2024” held at Daejeon World Cup Stadium at 4:30 p.m. on the 7th. Pohang (13 points, 4 wins, 1 draw, 1 loss, 4 losses) was ranked first, and Daejeon (5 points, 1 win, 2 draws, 3 losses, 6 losses) was ranked 10th.

The first one who laughed was Daejeon. In the first minute of the second half, Leandro, who was looking for a chance at a gap in the back of Pohang’s defense, finished Lee Jung-taek’s cross with a powerful header to score the first goal.

Pohang’s defeat intensified, but it did not give up until the end. In the 36th minute of the second half, Kim In-sung persistently chased the opponent’s pass miss, and the deflected ball crossed Lee Chang-geun’s height to equalize. It was not the end. Following Kim Ryun-sung’s cross and Hur Young-joon’s physical fight in the second half, Jung Jae-hee scored a come-from-behind goal with a calm shot in the box. In the end, the game ended with Pohang’s 2-1 victory.

After the match, he met Kim In-sung in the mixed zone. Since starting the match, he has constantly targeted the sides and created sharp chances, and scored the first goal without missing the opponent’s miss.

“I stretched my legs as far as I could along that course. I think I was lucky enough to score. I think I was able to catch up to the end and that led to a good situation,” Kim said with a smile.

It was the sprint just before the end of the competition. It would have been impossible if it were not for the determination to win. “I really wanted to win. I didn’t have any major physical problems,” Kim said.

Coach Park Tae-ha believed in Kim In-sung, who was brilliant, and Kim In-sung lived up to his belief. In a situation where his defeat was intensifying, he decided not to replace striker Kim In-sung. “I don’t care about that (replacement out) all the time, but I think I should show myself in the stadium. I think it was because I created a threatening situation in the first half. I also played on the left side for the first time in a long time, and I played a lot in Ulsan HD, so I didn’t have much difficulty. On top of that, I scored a point and it was nice to be able to seize the opportunity the coach gave me,” Kim said.

It was a match and a victory that I felt for my winning mentality in Pohang. Kim said, “I thought of course I had to win, but I couldn’t do it while playing. I’m so glad I won. Today’s game made my team feel stronger. It was a really good win.”

He had four wins, one draw and one loss in six matches, and was unbeaten in five matches. His performance has been on the rise even before the opening of the season, which was hard to predict. “Personally, I just follow the tactics the coach has used since the winter training camp. As it works, trust is building and fans and other people recognize me. I have played soccer for a long time and met many coaches, but I think it is a new tactic. I think I got good results based on the coach’s tactics,” Kim said with a smile.

When asked more about Pohang soccer, he replied, “It’s very detailed. I think the position is very good. Players feel the most as they are matching. There have been many changes. However, as the coach told me not to be afraid of mistakes or losses, I also came out of the stadium. Aside from the tactical part, I think I feel a lot more comfortable psychologically.”

I was also curious about the secret to maintaining top-class speed. “When I was young, I felt that I was fast, but now I think I try to maintain it. As I get older, of course, I lose weight. But I have increased my exercise more than before. I have never experienced a muscle injury in particular, so as I increase my exercise, I feel like I am maintaining it,” Kim said.

The view that he can even win the championship said, “It’s unpredictable. If you’re really lucky, and you get in the mood, you can get good results. However, if the atmosphere is not good and if it’s down, it can get bad. The coach said it’s important not to care about the result and to do it with a happy mind because life is short anyway. I think it’s right to do my best while enjoying it.” 핑크알바

In the next match, Pohang will play an away match against FC Seoul. Coach Kim Ki-dong will have a showdown with him. Lastly, Kim said, “I think the Seoul game is important as well, but I think it’s the same as when I came to Daejeon today. It’s not big and small. We need to win by showing our soccer in an away match. I think we can win.”
