Gwangju coach Lee Jeong-hyo (48), who stood at the center of the issue with his outspoken offensive tactics and outspoken speech, was put on his first test.
After losing 0-2 in Pohang in the 6th round, Gwangju won 4-3 in the 7th round in Daegu, but recently went undefeated in their 2 home matches against Gangwon and Jeju. 1 win in the last 4 games, the rise has been broken. After winning 13 points in 9 games, they were still in 5th place in the Final A, but the gap with 7th place Jeju (11 points) was narrowed to 2 points.
Gwangju, who scored 5 goals in one game against Incheon and 4 goals against Daegu, failed to score a goal in 3 of the last 4 games, so ‘Jeong Hyo-ball (Lee Jeong-hyo’s football)’ has already appeared in the K-League field. comes out It is said that the ‘aggressive tactics of actively targeting the side and half space and gaining an advantage in numerical battles’ are not read by the opponent and do not work well.
In fact, Gwangju struggled against teams that lowered their lines to the defensive side, such as Seoul, Jeonbuk, Pohang, Gangwon, and Jeju. Of these, 4 teams, excluding Gangwon, who drew 0-0, held on scoreless in the first half and then became aggressive in the second half to win. After Gwangju drove fiercely until the 60th to 70th minute of the game, they attacked the fact that their stamina and concentration dropped significantly after the middle of the second half. Manager Nam defined the 1-0 victory over Gwangju on the 26th as “a victory of patience.” It is no coincidence that Seoul, Jeonbuk, Pohang, and Jeju’s opening goal against Gwangju all came in the second half. Gangwon-do could have won its first win of the season in Gwangju if Yang Hyeon-joon had taken a decisive chance in the second half of extra time. 안전놀이터
Coach Lee Jung-hyo drew a lot of attention with a provocative remark, “A team that plays soccer like that” after the Seoul game. Some fans cheered, saying, “The appearance of K-Mourinho (Mourinho in the K-League).” If you turn Lee’s expression upside down, Gwangju is like a ‘team that plays soccer like this’. With a thorough analysis added, ‘So Soccer’ leads the game even against teams with high objective power. The problem is that good content does not lead to good results. In the game against Jeju, Gwangju recorded 16 shots, 12 key passes, and 13 crosses. He has a bright brain and is good at solving problems, but he writes down the wrong answer on the answer sheet.
The pro speaks sexually. If ‘soccer like this’ doesn’t work, try ‘that way’, and if you don’t like ‘that way’, you have to try ‘this way’ too. Anti-football is also football, and defensive football is also football. It’s different, not wrong. The tactical operation of blindly attacking because of overflowing confidence only gives the opponent a chance. K League 1 and K League 2 are different. The K-League 1 is full of foxy leaders who have gone through pre-natal battles. It is not just the players who have to break out of their shells.
