It is a small but meaningful change메이저놀이터.
Daegu FC, led by coach Choi Won-kwon, drew 1-1 in a confrontation with Pohang Steelers in the 12th round of ‘Hana 1 Q K League 1 2023’ held at DGB Daegu Bank Park on the 9th. The 11th round against Ulsan Hyundai (0-3 loss) has been rectified to some extent.
Daegu is not a team with thick ‘depth’. In that respect, the starting appointments of striker Keita and midfielder Park Se-jin, who were born in 2004, are meaningful. Daegu looked forward to Baselus and Serato, who were newly brought in this season. Baselus showed competitiveness even during winter training. But when the season started, things started to go wrong. Coach Choi excluded Baselus from the list for the match against Pohang. After commenting, “It is not an injury,” he declined to elaborate. Even Ko Jae-hyun was not in perfect condition, but Choi’s choice was Lee Keun-ho and Keita.
Keita’s main position is flanker. But Keita played his winger all the way through high school. And in the last 7th round against Gwangju FC, he was replaced as a winger and tasted the goal. On this day, he also gave a valuable equalizer in the 37th minute of the first half. As he is a defender, he has the advantage of being able to defend in the front line. Coach Choi also said, “He is a talented player. He has plans to use him as a winger in the future.”
Midfielder Park Se-jin is also getting a chance. Park Se-jin played 9 games this season, with 3 starts. He played 70 minutes, his most against Pohang. He played the same role as Altoran in karate. In addition, after Edgar, who has virtually no substitute, a chance will be given to striker Kim Young-jun from the third division. Coach Choi said, “Park Se-jin played well (against Pohang). He should and will give Kim Young-joon a chance,” he professed.
Keita’s forward placement and Park Se-jin’s appearance signify a message calling for awakening to Baselus or Serato, who play in the same position. This is the same reason why Director Choi said, “I think Baselus and Serato need to lift their bodies more.”
Daegu is known to be considering replacing foreign players in the summer transfer market. Even if a new foreign player joins, there is no guarantee that they will adapt right away. For this reason, coach Choi is thinking of ensuring sufficient opportunities for young players. Moreover, it was a bold choice even though it was not an easy change in the situation where Ace Sejingya was missing. Director Choi, who is spending his first year as a manager rather than an acting manager, is looking further into the future, although the results are in front of his eyes.
