Private Yoon Jong-gyu had expectations for a new environment.
Managing Director Kim Cheon held a press conference for the 2023 season K-League winter field training media camp at the Songjeong Hotel located in Haeundae-gu, Busan at 6:00 pm on the 9th. After the press conference with director Seong Han-soo, we had an interview with Yoon Jong-gyu.
Yoon Jong-kyu, who made his debut at FC Seoul in 2017, went on loan to Gyeongnam FC, and from the 2019 season, he took the starting position in earnest and was in charge of Seoul’s side defense. Under coach Ahn Ik-soo, he has grown into a key tactical player.
In the so-called ‘Iksu Ball’, Yoon Jong-kyu is placed in the position of right-back. However, if you watch the game, you can often see Yoon Jong-gyu playing mainly in the center rather than the side. Coach Ahn Ik-soo chose Yoon Jong-gyu as the right person for the ‘inverted fullback’ and actively utilized his vigorous activity and stamina. 먹튀검증
This tactical move also caught the attention of coach Paulo Bento. Yoon Jong-gyu was called by Bento coach two years before the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. In the evaluation match in September ahead of the World Cup, he assisted Hwang Hee-chan’s goal, raising expectations for the World Cup. He was named to the final list, but unfortunately did not step on the World Cup stage.
Ahead of the 2023 season, Yoon Jong-gyu chose the military option. Regarding the season with a new team, Jong-gyu Yoon said, “I am excited to join a new team. I also look forward to it and I think it will be fun because there are so many good players. I hope the season starts soon.” I was looking forward to the opening.
