“During the FC Seoul expedition (0-3 loss), I couldn’t keep up and watched the game on TV, but the result was disappointing.”
Daegu FC’s ace Sejingya, 안전놀이터who managed to return to the pitch through the match against Gwangju FC in the 7th round of Hana One Q K League 1 2023 at DGB Daegu Bank Park in Daegu on the 16th, looked at the situation in Daegu, which was quite difficult while he was away. He said he felt this way.
Sejinya looked very upset. He was unable to play a few games due to an ankle injury at an important time when he could bring the flow at the beginning of the season, and in the meantime, the team was shaken as it fell into a swamp of defeat, so it was natural in a way. The fans felt the same way. At the beginning of the second half of the Gwangju match, which was dragged by the opponent’s momentum, when Sejingya appeared on the pitch, enthusiastic cheers were sent. It may be because of the status of Sejingya, a popular star called ‘King of Daegu’, but it was also a desperate expectation to save Daegu from crisis.
Sejingya led the team’s attack in the Gwangju match at the time. Although they lost 3-4, Daegu changed the mood by indirectly participating in two of the three goals. After the game, as Daegu coach Choi Won-kwon said, he showed off a presence that could be said to be ‘50% of his power’.
After the match, the team’s leader, Sejingya, left a message to wake up the players. “I have been with this team for 8 years, and I know what kind of skills our players have,” said Sejingya. “They are players who can do anything, but they lack concentration. Despite training a lot, their concentration has declined. We have to be more focused from the start of the first half to the end of the second half,” he told his teammates.
He also left a message for fans who may feel nervous about the ranking that fell to 10th place. Sejingya said, “If you give us more support and support, the players will be able to get better, too.” “We are working hard in all areas, including training. We can get out of this situation and create more victories.” Although it is a crisis situation, the fans wanted to create an atmosphere that would firmly support the players so that they would not be shaken.
