“They told me I had to run full-time, so I ran with my teeth clenched. I don’t even know how I played for the last 10 minutes.”

Yeom Ki-hun (40), a “veteran” of Suwon Samsung in the professional football K League 1, smiled and said after the 2023 Hana One Q FA Cup 3rd round away match against K League 2 Ansan Greeners held at Ansan Wa Stadium in Gyeonggi Province on the 12th.

Yeom Ki-hoon, who has not yet played a single game in the regular league this season, made his first appearance on the day and played full-time, leading the team to a 3-1 victory.

Equipped with experience, he also posted two assists by assisting Ahn Byung-jun in the 10th minute and Jeon Jin-woo in the 14th minute of the second half.

His older brother, who forgot his age, played an active role, and his younger siblings became one. As a result, Suwon, which is at the bottom of the K-League 1 (2 points, 2 draws, 4 losses), won its first official victory this season. 온라인바카라

Yeom Ki-hoon said at the press conference after the match, “The atmosphere we were in was so bad that the atmosphere was low, and the FA Cup was a lot of pressure because the members changed a lot. “I’m happy to get my first win,” he said.

He couldn’t hide his smile at the team’s victory, even though he said, “It’s been a long time since I’ve played full-time in an official game.”

Yeom Ki-hun, who is preparing to retire at the end of this season, is getting fewer and fewer opportunities to play, but his presence in Suwon is not small.

Suwon coach Lee Byeong-geun said, “Yeom Ki-hoon, who played and led the game with his young friends in a difficult game, did a very good job. He showed that he can still do it at his age.” Other players will learn from Ki-hoon’s performance,” he praised him sparingly.

Suwon fans who visited the stadium sang cheering songs for Yeom Ki-hun, who took the lead in victory.

Yeom Ki-hun, who said, “I feel so good after a long time,” said, “It is a satisfying game just to play for 90 minutes.”

He added, “I was a bit teary-eyed when I heard the fans cheering for the first time in a while and ran (to the crowd), but I held it in. I think we should cry when we’re in a happier situation.”

Suwon now focuses on their first win of the K-League 1 season. Suwon will face Jeju United on the 15th.

Yeom Ki-hoon said, “I hope that the good energy will be transmitted to the first team players, so that they can win the first league victory and sing three cheers in front of the fans.”

He did not forget to cheer for Ahn Byung-jun, who scored his first goal of the season that day.

Yeom Ki-hun said, “I know the position of an attacker because I have been a wing forward for a long time. As I said, I’m glad I was able to help with the first goal of the season. As an older brother, I really congratulate you. Now that you’ve scored one goal, I expect Byung-jun to drive forward and score goals in the league as well.”
