Joo Min-kyu’s humble old-fashioned mode(?)…”Won-sang should do as I say”
Joo Min-gyu wanted Eom Won-sang to become the top scorer in the K-League 1, rather than himself.
Ulsan Hyundai won a 2-1 come-from-behind victory over Jeonbuk Hyundai in the opening match of the first round of the ‘Hana 1 Q K League 1 2023’ held at Munsu World Cup Stadium in Ulsan at 2:00 pm on the 25th.
Joo Min-gyu, who was a member of Ulsan in the 2019 season, decided to part ways with Jeju United this season and return to his home team. Joo Min-gyu in the 2019 season and Joo Min-gyu in the 2023 season are completely different players. Through his days in Jeju, Joo Min-gyu became the top scorer in the K-League 1, and set the record for the most goals in the league for two consecutive seasons.
Coach Hong Myung-bo showed Ju Min-gyu as the starter from the opening game and showed his confidence in the player. Ju Min-gyu did not record an attack point, but he showed why Ulsan wanted him with his presence in the front line. 메이저놀이터
Joo Min-gyu, whom I met after the game, seemed more nervous than I thought. He said, “First of all, since it was my first game, I was actually under a lot of pressure. To be honest, I couldn’t sleep and I couldn’t digest well for several days, and I was so desperate. It was my first game with Jeonbuk, so I thought I had to win. , I was burdened because I wanted to hear the story that ‘I came and the team became a bit stronger’, but the players worked hard and it became a relief game,” he sighed in relief.
Did Hyundai’s first derby feel different in four years? Joo Min-gyu said, “Of course I thought (it would be rough). I took it for granted that it would come out like that, but when I bumped into it, it came out really rough. “
There is only one thing Ulsan fans want from Joo Min-gyu this season. This is because if Ju Min-gyu brings the title of ‘scoring king’, Ulsan’s second consecutive league victory is expected. However, Joo Min-gyu humbly supported his junior, Eom Won-sang.
