Professional soccer K League 2 Kim Cheon Sangmu ‘Captain’ Young-jae Lee (28) was most looking forward to working with striker Jo Young-wook (24) among the newly joined recruits this year. In particular, he showed a look full of anticipation to the point of contemplating how he could help a lot.
Lee Young-jae met with reporters at the 2023 K-League Winter Field Training Media Camp held at the Songjeong Hotel in Busan on the 9th and said, “Among the new recruits, Private Cho Young-wook is expected. I am thinking about how I can be aggressive and help a lot.” He said this.
Lee Young-jae, who is the ‘best player’ in Gimcheon, will wear the captain’s armband and walk around the ground this year. He is about to be discharged in June, so after the opening of the K-League 2, he was discharged after only playing for three months, but he made a firm determination to help as much as possible until then.
In particular, he expressed his desire to take good care of the new recruits he joined this winter. Lee Young-jae said, “I personally want to help the new recruits a lot until I am discharged. I will take care of them so that they can show off their skills on the field.”
At the same time, Lee Young-jae, who said, “I’m thinking a lot of things that I can help while playing the game,” said, “I’m researching how to aggressively help Private Cho Young-wook, who is most expected to breathe. I know what kind of play he likes. I’m on my way,” he said.
In addition, Lee Young-jae added, “Private Kim Jin-kyu has many good memories when he played for one season at Busan I-Park. His play style matched well. I look forward to it as well.”
Below is the full Q&A of Lee Young-jae’s interview.
What is your physical condition or condition?
After receiving training at the training center, he is immediately engaged in winter training. I had minor injuries, but I’m fine now. I don’t think there will be any big problems in building up my body before the season.
There are quite a lot of captain appointments, uniform number changes, new recruits joining, and coach replacement changes.
It’s the first time I’ve been claiming since the start of the season. It’s a lot of pressure, but I also have a big desire to do well. I try to do well as a captain while discussing with the coach and the coaching staff. As for the uniform number, I had never put on a good number since I was a pro. I wanted to run with a single digit number. I think it will be a stimulant. I am looking forward to it because it will be a new year.
Coach Sung Han-soo puts a lot of emphasis on physical training such as high-intensity exercise. Compared to former coach Kim Tae-wan, he seems to have changed a lot during training. In terms of tactics, there is not much difference. He still gives players a lot of freedom in playing.
Many new recruits with outstanding competitiveness joined.
There seems to be a lot of perception that seniors play first within the framework of Sangmu, but I don’t want to have that perception. I just want to compete with my skills. I think the arrival of good recruits will be a good stimulus. You have to be better than those players to play the game. We are competing in good faith while training. You have to work hard to get into the game. I will survive the competition.
The K-League 2 stage is the first time in 8 years.
In my second year as a pro, I played on the K League 2 stage. Back then, he actually thought he was light. But after looking at it, it was a wrong idea. There are many good players in Gimcheon this year, but as we saw last year, I don’t think we play soccer for the name of the player. He thinks that he has to prepare well so that he can get good grades.
I think I need to be careful about injuries as there is not much time left before the campaign.
While enlisting in the army, he learned a lot about taking care of his body. Before he enlisted, he had a very bad ankle, but he is taking care of it while receiving treatment. He is also steadily doing weight training. He seems to have grown more in taking care of his body.
3 months is a short time, but the goal is.
Until I am discharged, personally, I want to help new recruits a lot. I want to do a good job as a captain. I will take care of the new recruits so that they can fully display their skills on the field. Also, I want to further complement the defensive part that was pointed out as a weakness. As the coach of the national team has changed, I have a desire to wear the Taegeuk mark constantly.
Who are the most anticipated players among the recruits?
Among the new recruits, Private Cho Young-wook is expected the most. I think about how I can help a lot aggressively. I’m also trying to figure out what kind of play I like. When Private Kim Jin-kyu was at I-Park in Busan, he played together for one season. He is such a good player. He had a lot of good memories back then. He also fits his playing style well. he is expected Since I look at attacking midfielders, I think defensive midfielders are important, but Private Kim Dong-hyun and Private Won Doo-jae have good skills and are the type I want, so I look forward to them a lot.
Do you keep in touch with Suwon FC manager Kim Do-kyun?
keep in touch often I also call often. There are times when even the director will contact you first. The coach told me not to get hurt and return well after being discharged. I think I have to do well for the rest of my time in Gimcheon and do my best to go back to Suwon FC and play. 온라인바카라
There are a lot of changes in the squad when comparing the present before leaving Suwon FC.
Lee Seung-woo has been on the same team since childhood. He knows me personally too. He knows the play he likes well, so he seems to be able to show good teamwork. Yoon Bitgaram is a competitor because he is in the same position, but on the other hand, he seems to be able to create a good synergy effect.
A word to the fans.
I think the Kimcheon fans must have been very disappointed because of the poor performance last year. If you come to the stadium this year, I will show you a different image from last year, and I will definitely give you victory. And as I grow further, I will become a recognized player in the K-League. I will become a player who can be talked about among coaches and reporters.
