Coach Kim Min-soo, who led the victory despite the manager’s absence, said, “It’s unfortunate that we played the game without the coach, but there were no major problems.

Regarding this, coach Kim Min-soo said, “Kim Soo-oh had just recovered from an injury, so it was burdensome to send him out as a starter.
