The main players of Jeonbuk Hyundai will be absent for the time being.
Jeonbuk played the 10th round of ‘Hanawon Q K League 1 2023’ against Gangwon FC at 4:30 pm on the 29th at Jeonju World Cup Stadium. The result was Jeonbuk’s 0-1 defeat. With 3 wins, 1 draw, 6 losses and 10 points, Jeonbuk ranked 9th out of 12 teams.
To make matters worseㅋㅋㅋ벳, key players were injured and even disciplined. Song Min-gyu, who started as a two-top striker along with Hafa Silva that day, suffered an injury in the 20th minute of the first half while competing with an opponent. The collapsed Song Min-gyu complained of great pain and called the medical team.
Immediately, the medical team cart entered the field. Song Min-gyu wiped his tears with his uniform as he was carried out on a cart. This shows that it is not a minor injury. Song Min-gyu, who had been playing with an evil spirit in the face of recent criticism of the team’s sluggishness, was replaced in the 22nd minute that day. Gustavo was put in instead.
After the game, I couldn’t walk properly. Song Min-gyu got on the club bus carrying the back of a Jeonbuk official. When he got on the bus, he limped on a chair and went to find his seat.
There is also an exit issue. Jeonbuk conceded a goal to Yang Hyeon-jun in the 5th minute of extra time in the second half in a tight 0-0 game. Right before the goal scene, Yang Hyeon-jun and Kim Geon-woong collided, but referee Kim Young-soo did not declare a foul, and Jeonbuk defenders Hong Jeong-ho and Kim Moon-hwan protested vehemently.
The referee issued a yellow card and a red card to Hong Jeong-ho. Hong Jeong-ho, who had previously received a warning in the 20th minute of the second half, received another warning in extra time and was sent off. Even after the exit order, Hong Jeong-ho raised his voice toward referee Kim Young-soo.
Here is not the end. Kim Moon-hwan was also sent off for protesting to the referee. It was such a fierce protest that the mouths of the two players were clearly revealed on the relay camera. Moonhwan Kim also spat out abusive language as he left the field.
For the time being, Jeonbuk must create a starting lineup without Song Min-gyu, Hong Jeong-ho, and Kim Moon-hwan. In addition to them, Kyu-seong Cho, Jin-soo Kim, Dong-jun Lee, Seong-woong Maeng, and Seon-min Moon were injured and left the team. In a situation where the existence of each player was disappointing, even the penalty for leaving was interlocked.
Jeonbuk will play an away game against FC Seoul on May 5th. On the 10th, an away game for Suwon Samsung and an away game for Incheon United are scheduled on the 14th. The 3 consecutive away matches against the 3 difficult teams in the metropolitan area are the real climax.
