If you can’t narrow it down in Pohang in August, it’s hard to win

Pohang Steelers, ranked second in the K League 1 (part 1), missed another chance to chase Ulsan Hyundai, the “absolute powerhouse.” Pohang drew 1-1 at home against Gwangju FC on the 13th. Ulsan lost to Gangwon FC on the 12th and was able to close the gap to single digits. Ulsan coach Hong Myung-bo also said, “It’s the furthest atmosphere since taking office,” giving Pohang a chance. However, even though Pohang scored the first goal against Gwangju, it only narrowed the gap by one point. In the end, the gap between Ulsan (57 points) and Pohang (46 points) remained in double digits (11 points).

Pohang has not been able to earn income even in the face-to-face confrontation with Ulsan this season. On April 22nd, in the first ‘East Coast Derby’ away game of the season, we drew 2-2, and on July 8th, we brought Ulsan home, but lost 0-1. I failed every time in a situation where I could calm Ulsan’s solo.

If the points are not narrowed in the remaining two games in August, the possibility of winning will inevitably decrease until the split, and in September, “Stork Prince” Ko Young-joon will be selected for the Hangzhou Asian Games national team. Coach Hwang Sun-hong plans to set up a full Asian Games national team from the 4th of next month to train in Korea, and then fly to Hangzhou between September 13 and 15 to play the first group match against Kuwait on September 19. For this reason, Ko Young-joon’s visit to Incheon on September 2 could be the last game before the split system begins. Pohang coach Kim Ki-dong has to play four games without Ko Young-joon, a key striker in the team, and even after the water and sewage are separated, he needs time to recover to play the Asian Games. On top of that, the Asian Champions League must be combined, and Pohang could face a crisis if an injury occurs due to a decrease in physical strength.

For this reason, Hong Yoon-sang, a large striker resource with European experience, needs to recover quickly. Head coach Kim has not been on the list due to Hong Yoon-sang’s unstable physical condition and lack of sense of practice.
