Yoo In-soo, who wore the Gangwon FC uniform this season, is likely to become the core of coach Choi Yong-soo’s football.
Gangwon FC held a press conference for the 2023 K-League Winter Field Training Media Camp at Songjeong Hotel located in Haeundae-gu, Busan on the 10th at 2pm. After coach Choi Yong-soo’s press conference, I had an interview with Yoo In-soo, who moved to Gangwon this season.
Yoo In-soo has a unique history. He stepped on his professional stage in 2016 by joining J League 1 side Tokyo FC. However, he was pushed out of the main competition and left on loan to Avispa Fukuoka, but the situation did not change. He eventually returned home. Yoo In-soo moved to Seongnam FC in December 2019 and challenged the K-League 1.
The advantage is that you can play in a variety of positions. Yoo In-soo is a versatile resource who can play not only as a side defender but also as a central midfielder. In his first season with Seongnam, he appeared in 23 K-League 1 matches, scoring 2 goals and 3 assists.
Afterwards, he served as managing director of Kim Cheon and finished his military service, and returned to Seongnam, his original team, in September of last year. However, the situation in Seongnam was not good at the time. There was constant noise externally, and his team’s performance plummeted. Yoo In-soo, who returned to the team in this situation, started talking heavily, saying, “Since I was in the army, I have always watched Seongnam games because it is my team. But the results were not good.”
He continued, “I took a vacation before being discharged. At that time, I returned the vacation and went to Seongnam to continue training. However, there was a lot of chaotic atmosphere during training and it didn’t seem easy. 카지노 I lost a lot of confidence. There was a part that was very difficult to adapt to. I was under a lot of stress and I was sorry that I couldn’t be of any help.”
Leaving behind the disappointment of last season, Yoo In-soo is preparing for a new season with a new team. Yoo In-soo said, “First of all, there are many good players in Gangwon. I am sure that if I work hard, I can get good results. I hope to be of great help because I came to this team,” he said, expressing his determination ahead of the season.
The left and right defenders play a very important role in the ‘Yons’ Ball’ led by coach Choi Yong-soo. Yoo In-soo said, “Gangwon places a lot of importance on wingbacks. This is because when defending, you have to form a five-back, and when you attack, you need to form a top five. When defending and attacking, he participated in the attack again, and I think I ordered a lot of plays like this.”
Finally, Yoo In-soo commented on the atmosphere of the team, “Most of the players were not close to each other. Still, the hyungs take care of me very well. I think this place has an atmosphere where everyone eats together, drinks coffee and goes to a cafe to talk together. It’s good,” he said.
