4 wins + 5th place while returning from injury… Back to the Jeju we used to know￼
Jeju United is regaining its original appearance.
Jeju, led by coach Nam Ki-il, has already won 4 wins (2 draws and 4 losses). The ranking, which fell all the way to the bottom, was also raised to 5th. Jeju won a 3-0 win against Daejeon Hana Citizen in the 10th round of the ‘Hana 1 Q K League 1 2023’ held at Daejeon World Cup Stadium on the 30th of last month. The last 2 wins in a row and 4 away wins in a row.
Jeju did not work out particularly well at the beginning of the season. Injured people followed one after another. Captain Choi Young-joon, Lim Chae-min, Jeong-woon, Yeon Je-woon, etc., especially the defense, had a lot of breakaways. At the same time, Jeju’s strength, solid and sticky defense, was somewhat shaken. Kim O-gyu took the center of the three-back, but there were gaps in his organizational skills.
After a brief ups and downs, Jeju stood up again. After winning their first victory by defeating Gangwon FC (1-0 win) in the 5th round, they went on a definite upswing. Including the Gangwon match, they swept 12 points with 4 wins and 1 loss in 5 matches. Three of Jeju’s four victories were scoreless, and above all, they did not concede a single goal in the last two games.
The injured returning one by one is also a factor in increasing power. In particular, it is nice to see the return of defender Jeong Woon. Jeong-woon, who changed his position to a central defender in harmony with manager Nam, was temporarily absent due to a hamstring injury. He is indispensable to Jeju’s defense. There was a mistake in the Jeonbuk Hyundai match, but in the match against Daejeon, he started for the first time this season and even started scoring. 크크크벳
Side defender Ahn Tae-hyun is also not outstanding, but he is playing a role like Altoran with his vigorous activity. Goalkeeper Kim Dong-jun also saved the team several times by making a series of ‘super saves’. If Lim Chae-min, Jeon Seong-jin, and Yeon Je-woon return, Jeju can become even stronger. Jeju has not many goals, with 11 goals in 10 games.
Jeju’s next goal is their first win at home. After two consecutive away matches, Jeju faces Pohang Steelers and Incheon United at home. No win at home yet. Jeju has a record of 1 draw and 3 losses at home this season. Jeju has an unprecedented number of spectators looking for its home stadium. The average number of spectators for the 4 games was 8,155, but the results were left disappointing. Coach Nam also promised victory in the second consecutive home game. He said, “The players had a lot of motivation and pressure at home. I will show you a different side this time.”
