“I play attack soccer because I can’t defend.”
Lee Min-seong, director of Daejeon Hana, briefly explained why he had no choice but to play the ‘Dak-Gong (Dak-Chik-Go attack)’ mode.
Daejeon Hana played the 7th round of ‘Hanawon Q K League 1 2023’ against Ulsan Hyundai at Daejeon World Cup Stadium on the 16th. Both teams switched offenses and defenses very quickly. I thought Ulsan had the right to attack and even hit a shot, but Daejeon snatched the ball and ran to the opposite camp. This pattern kept repeating itself.
The attack continued without a break for 90 minutes. The 16,000 spectators could not take their eyes off the ground even for a moment. Fans went wild with every shot and every dribble. The reporters watching were excited as well. It was a match that deserved to be won no matter who won.
In the end, the home team won the match 2-1. Last year’s champion Ulsan tried to win 7 consecutive wins, but was caught in the match against the promoted team. Daejeon extended their home unbeaten streak. Daejeon home fans said to the Ulsan fans on the other side, “Goodbye! Goodbye!” said goodbye 스포츠토토
At the press conference after the game, Ulsan coach Hong Myung-bo praised the two teams with a bright expression. First, he said, “It was really fun,” and “I knew that Daejeon’s forward pressure was fast. If we play fierce games like today throughout the season, the players will be exhausted after about 20 games.” That means the quality is high.
“We have to play this kind of game in the K-League. Don’t go down against strong teams. In that respect, Daejeon has set a good precedent.” Also, to the opposing team’s commanding officer Lee Min-seong, “He is an experienced leader compared to his age. I coached under several coaches. I have experienced both the professional team and the national team. a prepared leader It is the first year of K-League 1 promotion, but I expect that I will be able to have a good influence in the K-League in the future.”
After a while, director Lee Min-seong, who came to the press conference, had a rather calm expression. Director Lee said, “I won by jumping with evil. The best defense is offense. He has to be aggressive so he can hinder the opposing team from doing well. Due to the composition of the players, it was better to be aggressive. It is a concept that Daejeon must maintain.”
Coach Lee Min-seong is already in his third year in charge of Daejeon. He emphasized this point. “We are in our 3rd season in Daejeon. I’ve played both defensively and offensively for the past three years. We are a team that cannot be played defensively. Because you can’t defend. So I have no choice but to be aggressive.”
Coach Lee said, “I also want to change to a defensive tactic from time to time. If you are good at defense, defensive tactics are possible. However, because the defense is not good, they play aggressive football. As long as I am there, Daejeon will continue to play aggressive football.” Daejeon’s ‘Dakgong’ is expected to divide the K-League game in the 2023 season.
