Is it the appearance of K-League coach Jose Mourinho?
Gwangju FC lost 0-2 in the second round of ‘Hanawon Q K League 1 2023’ against FC Seoul held at the Gwangju Soccer Stadium on the 5th. Gwangju defeated Suwon Samsung 1-0 in the opening game, but lost the first home game and stayed with 3 points (1 win, 1 loss).
Gwangju dominated the first half. Coach Lee Jung-hyo’s soccer, which made the team from last season, was perfectly implemented. Strong frontal pressure and quick counterattacks with activity were harassing Seoul. At the end of the first half, Um Ji-sung even scored a goal with a perfect breakthrough. However, the goal was canceled as Sandro’s foul was declared through video review (VAR).
In the second half, things turned completely upside down. Seoul made a change by putting in Park Dong-jin, Willian, and Han Chan-hee. Gwangju was sent off in the 10th minute of the second half after Um Ji-seong received a warning after 2 minutes, and was left behind. Seoul led the game afterward, and Osmar and Park Dong-jin scored consecutive goals to win the game. 메이저사이트
After the game, Lee’s remarks became a hot topic. Director Lee said, “It is more resentful than regretful. It is most frustrating to lose to a team that plays soccer like that. So will the players. In order for Korean soccer to develop in the future, a team with colors like Gwangju must bring results. It is an unacceptable defeat. Of course, I do not think badly of Seoul and coach Ahn Ik-soo, so I hope there are no misunderstandings.”
