Lee Kang-in, who left forever, and Jo Young-wook, who will soon leave… ‘Director Gimcheon’ Jeong Jeong-yong is ‘Five Yeolgak’ – ‘Master’ Jeong Jeong-yong is ‘History of Happiness’


The moment ‘Hwang Seon-hong-ho’ won the gold medal at the Hangzhou Asian Games, the person who probably had the most complicated feelings was Gimcheon Managing Director Jeong Jeong-yong.

I am indescribably happy that my favorite student won a gold medal and gained wings in his future career, but from the team’s head coach’s perspective, the loss of power is so severe that he cannot help but laugh.

Striker Cho Young-wook (Gimcheon), who scored the winning goal in the final against Japan, received military service benefits according to his gold medal as soon as he was promoted to corporal this month, and is expected to be discharged early. Cho Young-wook, who returns to the team on the 13th after a short vacation, plans to coordinate his discharge date through consultation with the Armed Forces Athletic Corps. There remain issues to be resolved with Cho Young-wook’s unit, including the issue of him not receiving basic military training when he enlisted last year.

Since Coach Jeong took charge of Gimcheon in June, Cho Young-wook has scored 11 goals in 15 games, lifting the team from outside the playoffs to a championship contender. As of the 11th, Gimcheon is in second place in K League 2 with 61 points, following leader Busan (63 points). Coach Jeong will have to fight to win the right to direct promotion, which is given to the winning team without Cho Young-wook, as early as the 36th round away game against Ansan on the 22nd. Coach Jeong joked, “I don’t know if (Cho) Young-wook will have the heart to play,” and added, “As he is a responsible player, he will do his best while he remains. This is his first time with the unit, so it seems to take time to make a decision. “I’m waiting for the results,” he said.

National team-level recruits scheduled to enlist at the end of the year, such as Baek Seung-ho, Song Min-gyu (Jeonbuk), Seol Young-woo, and Eom Won-sang (Ulsan), also won Asian Games gold medals ahead of enlistment, eliminating their military service obligations. The Armed Forces Athletic Corps plans to select additional soccer students, but it is expected to be difficult this year. A blow to Director Jeong’s 2024 plan is also inevitable.레고토토

However, Coach Jeong said, “It may be true from Coach Gimcheon’s perspective, but we have to look at it from the perspective that the players can play in ‘big water’ for Korean soccer. What can be better than the players letting go of their mental burdens? The players “If the opportunity arises, we will try to expand overseas,” he said.

Among the winning members, many were players who finished second in the 2019 Poland U-20 World Cup. These include Lee Kang-in (Paris Saint-Germain), Cho Young-wook, Eom Won-sang, Lee Gwang-yeon (Gangwon), Lee Jae-ik (E-Land), and Choi Jun (Busan). Coach Jeong said, “It seems that players who had a lot of experience in international competitions as a child stand out (even in other competitions).

The reunion with Lee Kang-in, who formed a relationship with the coach as the ‘youngest brother’ during the Poland competition, did not happen again this time.” “Oh my. “I don’t think I’ll ever see Kangin (as a coach and player),” he said with a laugh.
