Kitchee says “Kim Shin-Wook is injured. We will focus on defense”
“Kim Shin-wook is injured. We will focus on defense”.
Kitchee FC (Hong Kong) held its official press conference ahead of its 2023-2024 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Champions League Group F first leg at Jeonju World Cup Stadium on Nov. 19. Kitchee will face K League 1 side Jeonbuk Hyundai at the same venue on Tuesday.
“It’s an honor to play in Jeonbuk,” said Kitchee head coach Ju Ju Gwong. It’s a tough schedule with home and away games. We have to play not only in the ACL but also in Hong Kong. When I came here in 2018, it was very cold, but this time it’s different. We came to Korea last Sunday and we adapted well. I’m looking forward to a good performance.
Regarding Kim Shin-wook’s exclusion from the roster, head coach Joo Ju-kwong said, “Kim Shin-wook is injured. He is currently receiving treatment in Hong Kong. That’s why he couldn’t come to Korea.”바카라
Kitchee, who finished second in the Hong Kong Premier League, is the team’s top scorer with 12 goals. It’s still early in the season, but the offense is explosive.
“Jeonbuk is a top team, having won the ACL, so tomorrow we have to focus on defense. However, we need to stay focused and work hard to have a good game.”
“Jeonbuk is definitely a strong team. They are not easy to play against. I hope our players will not let their guard down.”
Coaches Kim Dong-jin and Yoon Dong-hyun have been working on the team. “We have two Korean coaches working with us,” said Joo. They gave us a lot of advice. In 2018, we were not prepared for the weather, but this time is different. We prepared well for the weather, so we will play a good game.”
