Joo Min-kyu’s Returning Desire “I didn’t forget the runner-up in 2019! Ulsan’s 2nd consecutive victory is the goal”
Joo Min-gyu (33), who returned to Ulsan Hyundai after being reborn as the best striker in the K-League 1 (Part 1), is full of aspirations for the championship. Ulsan climbed to the top of the K-League 1 last year and resolved the resentment that had accumulated for 17 years, but Ju Min-gyu did not. On December 1, 2019, we lost 1-4 in the final game against Pohang Steelers at Ulsan Sports Complex and missed the championship right in front of our eyes.
Joo Min-gyu said in an interview with Sports Dong-a, “It would have been nice if I had won even if I didn’t play many games in 2019.” The team’s goal is to win two consecutive championships, but this is my first challenge. I want to contribute to the team winning,” he raised his voice. 토토사이트
Joo Min-gyu, who was only a backup after being pushed by Junio, a top scorer, transferred to Jeju United, which was demoted to K-League 2 (2nd division) after the 2019 season. He returned to the K-League 1 stage by leading Jeju to win the K-League 2 in the 2020 season. Not stopping here, he scored 22 goals in the 2021 season and became the top scorer in five years after Gwangju FC Jeong Jo-guk (now Jeju coach). In the 2022 season, he scored the most goals with 17 goals, along with Cho Kyu-seong (Jeonbuk Hyundai).
Joo Min-gyu, who returned to Ulsan after being reborn as the best striker in the K-League 1, said, “I was really happy for three years in Jeju. He is grateful to be able to gain a lot,” he said, “I chose to go to Ulsan to develop as a player. There is no other reason. “Director Hong Myung-bo’s Ulsan” itself has a lot of meaning.”
As a member of the ‘defending champion’, Joo Min-gyu was in a position where he had to ‘defend’ for the first time since his professional debut. “We have to be a better team this year than last year. All teams will play against Ulsan, but we need to prepare better. It is a winning team, so it is not possible to lose or draw,” he said, “I want to win all competitions I participate with Ulsan.
He has become the best goal scorer in the league, but he cannot avoid competing for the starting position. If there was Junio in 2019, this year there is Martin Adam. Joo Min-gyu said, “In 2019, I was not wise enough to compete for the starting lineup, but now I can afford it.” “Adam is a very good player, and he has a lot to learn. He finds a way to coexist rather than compete, and he wants to help the team,” he said with strength.
