Despite the introduction of Koo Ja-cheol, who returned after 107 days, Jeju did not get the ‘home win’ that coach Ki-il Nam hoped for

Koo Ja-cheol (34, Jeju United)’s ‘return after 107 days’ card did not work.

Jeju drew 0-0 against Jeonbuk in the 29th round of Hana One Q K League 1 2023 held at Jeju World Cup Stadium on the 3rd.

As a result of this day, Jeju stood at 9th place with 9 wins, 8 draws, 12 losses, and 35 points. Jeju, which had been on a two-game losing streak before this game, tried to turn things around with a win, but had to be satisfied with just one point.

Jeju sent Ahn Tae-hyun, Kim Dae-hwan, Yuri Jonatan, Kwon Soon-ho, Kim Bong-su, Kim Joo-gong, Kim Oh-gyu, Lim Chae-min, Song Joo-hoon, Lee Ju-yong, and Kim Dong-jun (goalkeepers) to the ground first.

Koo Ja-cheol, who is considered a ‘Jeju legend’, was added to the waiting list after 107 days. After playing full-time against Seoul on May 20, he was unable to play for a while due to a calf injury. The period lasted over 3 months.

Koo Ja-cheol was replaced by Kim Joo-gong in the 15th minute of the second half of the day and was put on the field and played until the end of the game. As the frustrating 0-0 trend continued, coach Ki-il Nam tried to lay the foundation for victory by bringing in the experienced Ja-cheol Koo, but there was no change that exceeded expectations. Koo Ja-cheol returned after a long hiatus, so his touch was not perfect.

Jeju had to accept the disappointing result of 0-0 at home.

Jeju had a good start. Jeju opened the attack in the 13th minute of the first half. Lee Ju-yong fired a winning shot from near the left corner of the box. The ball went over the goal by just one fist. Jeju’s three-way pass that instantly destroyed Jeonbuk’s left flank before Lee Joo-yong took the shot was the highlight.

In the 18th minute of the first half, they took advantage of Jeonbuk’s mistake from midfield and launched a counterattack. Jeju’s Hayes, who was on the left flank, received a pass and pretended to go toward the goal before hitting a shot from just outside the edge of the box. This was headed directly at the goalkeeper.

In the 25th minute of the first half, Jeju Ahn Tae-hyun created his own opportunity. In a situation where Jeonbuk’s clearing was not successful, Ahn Tae-hyun quickly snatched the ball. Even in a situation where he lost his center of gravity, he finished with a shot from near the arc. But too much force was used. The ball floated upward.스포츠토토

Jeju, which successfully blocked Jeonbuk’s attack, struggled in the second half as well. But no important goal was scored. In the 11th minute of the second half, Hayes, who was in front of the arc, took control of the ball coming from behind and fired a bullet with the instep of his foot. Although it was threatening, the ball did not go into the goal.

In the 16th minute of the second half, Jeju tried to find a more offensive route by pulling out the ‘Koo Ja-cheol replacement card’, but it did not lead to a ‘home win’.

Before the game, coach Ki-il Nam said, “I think Koo Ja-cheol’s continued absence from games has had a negative effect on the team. He seems to have been shaken by his absence, but he has influence in the locker room, so he will be a great help to the team.” However, the introduction of Koo Ja-cheol did not bring about dramatic changes.
