‘Retry after 7 years’ Kim Hak-beom “I will make Jeju a hell for the away team”

“We will achieve a 60% win rate in home games and a 40% win rate in away games.”Coach Kim Hak-beom (63), an ‘academic leader’ who returned as the head coach of professional soccer team Jeju United, announced his firm determination to make Jeju a ‘hell for away teams’ in 2024.Coach Kim Hak-beom met with reporters at the clubhouse in Seogwipo, Jeju Island on the 5th and emphasized, “The biggest goal is to play a fun game that can bring home fans to the stadium,” and added, “We will make Jeju a hell for the away team.”Coach Kim took over the baton of Jeju on December 5 of last year and returned to the K-League stage six years after stepping down as Gwangju FC head coach in November 2017, and is set to try again in the K-League for the first time in seven years in the new season of 2024. .

Coach Kim, who emphasized the players’ ‘responsibilities and obligations’ at the NewYear’s meeting held with the players on the 5th, promised fast and exciting soccer this season.What Coach Kim pays most attention to is increasing the winning percentage in home games.Jeju recorded 4 wins, 6 draws, and 6 losses in home games in rounds 1 to 33 of the 2023 regular season, with a win rate of only 25%.As a result, they heard criticism from home fans that they were ‘playing boring soccer’, and ended up finishing the season in 9th place after failing to advance to Final A.It was even more disappointing as it ranked 4th in 2021 and 5th in 2022 and was part of Final A for two consecutive years.Last year, Jeju had a difficult season due to poor performance due to the departure of key players due to injuries and the subsequent dismissal of coach Ki-il Nam.With the goal of turning things around, Jeju recruited coach Kim Hak-beom, who led Korean soccer to victory at the 2018 Jakarta-Palembang Asian Games and the 2020 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) U-23 카지노사이트킹 Championship, as a ‘firefighter’.
