“Today’s victory will give us the momentum to prepare for the upcoming matches.”
Ansan Greeners acting head coach Song Han-bok smiled. Ansan secured their first win in 13 games. Ansan won 1-0 against Gimpo FC in the 23rd round of the Hana OneQ K League 2 2023 at Gimpo Solter Soccer Field on April 24.
Ansan escaped the quagmire of 12 games without a win (2 draws and 10 losses), including a nine-game losing streak.
Coach Song said at the post-match press conference, “We knew how to play in a tough time zone. They were fighting spiritually and playfully, so it was a satisfying game.” It was the first win under the acting regime.
“The process was harder than anyone else, but it was rewarding. I think the coaching staff, support staff, and players all felt the same way.”
Choi Han-sol was sent off early on, but luckily VAR overturned the yellow card. “We weren’t surprised,” says Song. We discussed how to prepare. It would have been difficult to play with 10 players, but we weren’t worried.”
On the midfield combination of Choi Han-sol and Noh Kyung-ho, he said, “We didn’t have time to prepare tactically in detail, but they did their job well. I think we need to improve their physicality.”
“When I was stressed, I was able to communicate with someone and get advice, so I was able to relieve my stress. It would be a lie to say that I wasn’t stressed about the result, and everyone did a good job,” Song said.
“One thing that stuck with me was the sunshine policy of reaching out to the players first,” he said. “It gave me confidence that the players showed determination in a tough time and got it done. I think it’s the same for everyone. I think it will give us a lot of momentum for the upcoming matches.” 파워볼게임
