“We were disappointed with the lack of performance from the substitutes”.
Jeonbuk Hyundai and Suwon Samsung played to a 1-1 draw in the 26th round of the Hana OneQ K League 1 2023 on Wednesday at Jeonju World Cup Stadium.
The draw keeps Jeonbuk in third place with 41 points from 12 wins, five draws and nine losses.
Jeonbuk head coach Petrescu said after the game, “I’m sorry to the fans who supported us. I’m sorry we didn’t win. It’s the first time we haven’t won at home since I took over.” “There were a lot of bizarre things. Suwon had very few chances in the first half, but they scored from a set piece. On the other hand, we had several good chances, but we didn’t capitalize. We emphasized set pieces and it’s a shame we didn’t capitalize on them. With the exception of Han Gyo-won, none of the substitutes made an impact today.”
On Baek Seung-ho’s flanking arrangement, Petrescu said: “We had a decisive chance in the first half. It wasn’t a failure. It wasn’t a problem in the end,” he said, explaining that “the only thing that poisoned us was Suwon’s one chance, which turned into a goal.”
Petrescu added: “We needed our substitutes to finish in the second half. In the second half, Suwon looked tired, so we had to be creative and change the flow of the game, and that’s what I’m disappointed about.” 메이저사이트
Petrescu, who will have to make changes to his defense after Hong Jung-ho’s sending off, said: “Hong Jung-ho will not play against Ulsan because he was sent off. We still have time, so we will think about what combination will be best for us.”
“Hyundai is aware of the importance of the derby. “Ulsan is in first place, but they are not in good form, so they will try to grind it out against us. They recognize the importance of the match.”
