“I want to try to win a championship in a team called Incheon”, “I think it is possible enough to compete for the championship.”
The King of Remnant, the King of Survival. It has been a long time since I erased the image that narrowly confirmed K-League 1 retention every season. Incheon United advanced to the Asian Champions League (ACL) for the first time in the club’s history by finishing fourth in the league last season. Now, players look to the goal beyond that.
It was confidence for a reason. Incheo메이저사이트n succeeded in recruiting a storm. Representatively, ‘veteran’ Shin Jin-ho joined the team, but they also brought 190cm tall striker Chun Seong-hun, Paul Poze Mpoku, who has experienced many European leagues, and top-class winger Zerso. Renewed contracts with existing resources Kim Dong-hun, Lee Tae-hee, Kim Dong-min, Jeong Dong-yoon, and Kim Jun-yeop, and paid attention to house crackdowns. While maintaining power, he brought in a number of recruits to strengthen his depth. The team has become stronger than last season when they placed 4th.
Incheon coach Cho Seong-hwan also said at the media day of Changwon, Gyeongsangnam-do on the 14th, “Last year, I sweated with the players with the goal of taking it two or three steps higher. I believe that I can make better results and results last year by recruiting good players. . Fans’ expectations have risen, so we have to revive,” he said.
Furthermore, the word ‘winner’ comes out of the mouths of the players. It was different from the time when we were talking about staying in the first division or going to the upper division every season. It wasn’t even empty words. As if full of confidence, the eyes of the players were blazing.
“Transfer student” Shin Jin-ho said, “Last year, Incheon ranked fourth. I want to do it. I will try it. It may not be this year, but I think it will be possible enough if the players, club staff, and fans all have the same mood and mind as they do now.”
Chun Seong-hoon, a striker who returned from experiencing the German stage, had a similar idea. He said, “The team has become stronger. The ACL is aiming to advance to the round of 16. I think it is possible to compete for the championship in the league. I think I can do it enough when I do it. Other teams will also feel burdened by Incheon.”
In other words, the players were confident that they had a squad and power comparable to the winning teams. This year, by minimizing injury problems, team organization, and players’ fighting spirit and grit, they can surpass last year’s 4th place.
Gatekeeper Kim Dong-heon confidently said, “I want to finish 3rd or higher in the league this year. Fans also have expectations. I want to advance to the round of 16 on the ACL stage.”
