Director Choi Kang-hee, Shandong debut, 3-3 draw… “Team needs stabilization time”￼
Choi Kang-hee (64), who was appointed as a ‘firefighter’ for Shandong Taishan in Chinese professional football, unfortunately missed victory in his debut game.
Shandong, led by coach Choi Kang-hee, drew 3-3 in the 8th round of the 2023 Super League against Tianjin Jinmen held at the Olympic Center Stadium in Tianjin, China on the 20th.
Coach Choi Kang-hee took over as Shandong’s new head coach in a chaotic situation both internally and externally, with Shandong’s Korean national team midfielder Son Jun-ho being detained and former coach Hao-wei and coaching staff under investigation.
Coach Choi Kang-hee, who took the baton of Shandong on the 16th, four days before the game, was not easy from his first game.먹튀검증
Shandong was dragged away, conceding two goals in the 12th minute of the game. Shandong, led by Choi Kang-hee, who quickly reorganized the team, turned the game around with goals in the 16th and 34th minutes of the first half. Then, in the 42nd minute of the first half, they succeeded in turning around.
However, in the 11th minute of the second half, Jad Song’s own goal tied the score and the flow was cut off. The match ended in a draw as Shandong failed to add one more goal.
After the match, head coach Choi Kang-hee said, “It’s unfortunate that we couldn’t win. However, since I was appointed to the team for a short time, it was difficult to solve all the problems.”
“It was my first game as manager of Shandong, and all the players wanted to win. It’s not easy to get 3 points on the road,” he said. “I will prepare well to win the next home game.”
Meanwhile, Shandong has only 1 win (5 draws and 2 losses) in 8 matches and is in 11th place out of 16 teams.
