“I want to win the come-from-behind championship” vs “I don’t care” A tense battle of nerves between the 1st and 2nd teams

Korean Air coach Tommy Tilikhanen and Hyundai Capital coach Choi Tae-woong’s nerve warfare seem to be one of the highlights in the second half of the V-League men’s division.

Coach Tae-Woong Choi looked back on the first half ahead of the Dodram 2022-2023 V-League men’s match against Korean Air in the 4th round at Incheon Gyeyang Gymnasium on the 7th and said, “The players did better than I thought. He said, “Looking at the rankings, I am satisfied.”

There was nothing particularly unsatisfying. Director Choi said, “We need more performances by Heo Soo-bong.” At the same time, coach Choi predicted a fierce competition for rankings in the second half.

Coach Choi said, “(The Korean Air match) is an important match for us. There must come a time when the opponent will be burdened with what you have prepared. I want to win the come-from-behind championship,” he said. 안전놀이터

Until the third round of this season, the result of the two teams facing each other was one-sided. Korean Air is winning 3 matches. The set score was 3-0 in the first round, 3-0 in the second round, and 3-1 in the third round.

Korean Air is leading with 16 wins and 3 losses and 47 points from the previous 19 games. Hyundai Capital is chasing with 12 wins and 6 losses and 36 points, having played one less game. If Hyundai Capital wins on this day, coach Choi’s New Year’s wish is not impossible.

However, director Tillikainen said, “I don’t care.” In response to Choi’s determination to win a come-from-behind victory, coach Tillikainen said, “All men’s coaches say they want to win. I don’t care. We have a goal set at the beginning of the off-season. There is no change. I will run to the end for that goal,” he said.

Next, coach Tillikainen said, “The players are following what they want to do. You are doing well,” he praised.
