Cho finally breaks his ‘silence’ “I don’t think it’s a slump, it’s just one of those flowing goals.
Cho Kyu-sung (Jeonbuk Hyundai) finally broke his scoring ‘silence’.
Jo Kyu-sung and Moon Sun-min scored consecutive goals to give Jeonbuk a 2-0 win at home against Ulsan Hyundai in the 16th round of the Hana OneQ K League 1 2023 at Jeonju World Cup Stadium on 3 March. With 21 points, Jeonbuk is now in sixth place, one point ahead of Daegu FC, who are without a game.
Cho Kyu-sung started the game from the bench. At the start of the second half, he took the field in place of Hapa Silva. After his substitution, Cho worked hard to create attacking chances, moving between the flanks and the centre, and rattled the Ulsan goal with a deflected header from Jun Amano’s cross in the 38th minute. In second-half stoppage time, Moon Sun-min scored the winning goal.
After the game, Cho Kyu-sung said, “We’re quite far behind Ulsan, but our pride was on the line and we really wanted to win, so I’m glad we were able to score and win. I didn’t think about anything after scoring the goal 스포츠토토.”
Cho Kyu-sung’s goal was his second in the league. It was his first goal in about three months since he scored against Suwon Samsung on 5 March. He said, “It’s been a long time since I scored, but I didn’t feel like I was in a slump. I thought it would come one day, and I think it was better than the other games because I scored in the Hyundai Derby,” he said, “I thought I just had to do my job. I thought it was natural for the fans to criticise me, and it was natural for me to show a good performance, but I thought I should prepare well,” he said calmly.
On the 5th, the national team’s roster for the June A match will be announced. “Of course, I’m a striker, so it’s natural for me to score goals. I knew Coach Klinsmann was here after the game. I hope the coach thinks well of me,” he laughed.
Acting coach Kim Doo-hyun said, “It would have been an important game for Cho Kyu-sung to gain confidence and change the flow.” “I think it was one of those goals that just flowed,” Cho Kyu-sung replied.
