Jung Seung-hyun (Ulsan) is a challenger. He will become the new captain of this season’s K-League defending champion Ulsan. He has to lead the team well. At the same time, he challenges the task of Ulsan’s second K-League victory. What is Ulsan’s goal from Jeong Seung-hyun’s point of view? I met Jeong Seung-hyun in Algarve, Portugal, where Ulsan’s off-season training was being held.
Last season, Ulsan won the K-League for the first time in 17 years. But Jeong Seung-hyeon doesn’t think Ulsan is sitting on the ‘throne’ yet.
“We are still challengers,” he said, adding, “Jeonbuk won five consecutive seasons before we won the championship. We have won seven championships in the last 10 seasons.” This meant that the Jeonbuk Dynasty was alive and well. Jung Seung-hyun diagnosed, “Ulsan has now won the championship for the third time. It was also the first championship in 17 years. It is still far away.”
In the end, his answer was ‘challenge’. Jeong Seung-hyun emphasized, “Rather than thinking that we have to protect the championship cup, we are in a position to take on another challenge.” “Everyone should forget the memory of last year’s championship. did.
The competition Jung Seung-hyun challenges is not limited to the K League. 메이저사이트 There is also the Asian Champions League (ACL). Ulsan won the ACL in 2012 and 2020. This time, he is aiming for his third ACL championship. Jeong Seung-hyun said, “We are aiming to win the K-League as well as the ACL and FA Cup. Our goal is to win all competitions. I think it is worth challenging with such a squad.”
Especially ACL is special. Jung Seung-hyun won the ACL twice. When he played for Kashima Antlers in Japan in 2018, he lifted the championship trophy as the main defender. And he won as a member of Ulsan in 2020. The third ACL victory this time is challenging has a different meaning. You can write a tie record for the most wins by a Korean player. Jeong Seung-hyun said, “The only Korean player who has won the ACL three times is (Kwon) Soon-tae in Kashima. So I personally want to set a record in the ACL. My goal is to win three to four times.” .
