Munich’s top talent confesses to Kim Min-jae…”I love Kim Min-jae”

Jamal Moussaoui talks about Kim Min-Jae.

Moussaoui is arguably Bayern Munich’s best talent right now. Born in 2003, he’s only 20 years old, but he’s already a regular starter for the Bavarians and is considered a key resource for the German national team at a young age. Immediately, he made his debut for Germany at last year’s FIFA 2022 World Cup in Qatar, where he was a standout performer. Although Germany ended their World Cup campaign in the group stages, it was clear that Moussaoui is one of the most promising players on the national team and can perform on the big stage.

Recently, Moussaoui was interviewed by German publication Sport Bild alongside German legend Lothar Matthäus. In the interview, Musial was asked about his goals, motivation, coach Hanji Flick, UEFA Euro 2024 in Germany next year, and more. One of the questions he was asked was about Harry Kane and Kim Min-Jae, who joined Munich in the summer transfer window before the season 스포츠토토.

“I have a good relationship with all the players since I played at Munich. We are a team and there is a feeling of a big family. It’s easy to get to know all the players, and that’s a good thing,” he said, adding that the atmosphere in Munich is good right now.

“If you ask me specifically, I will answer. I love Kim, he’s the best. Kane is also a good guy. Kane is a player who can motivate us, who can take us to the next level. The more games we play together, the better we will understand each other, and we can be stronger.”

It’s clear from Mourinho’s interview that Kim is fitting in well with the team, both externally and internally. Since joining Munich in the summer transfer window, Kim has earned the trust of head coach Thomas Tuchel and has been a regular starter. Since the start of the season, he has been anchoring Munich’s defense alongside Dayo Upamecano and, more recently, Matthijs de Ligt. Judging by his response, it’s safe to say that Kim is not only doing well on the pitch, but is also making his mark in the locker room.

One step to gold!…Director Kim Jong-kyun, “I want to make the fans smile”

South Korea’s LoL head coach Kim Jung-gyun has spoken about his team’s determination to win gold.

South Korea defeated China 2-0 in their League of Legends quarterfinal match at the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games on Monday at the Hangzhou Esports Center Main Stadium in Hangzhou, China. South Korea’s head coach Kim Jung-gyun was all smiles as he entered the mix zone. The win over China seemed to take the pressure off of him.

“The Asian Games were postponed from last year, and it was very hard to prepare for it, but I’m glad we beat China in the quarterfinals,” Kim said of the victory 스포츠토토. However, he added, “It’s not over yet, so we need to prepare well until we win. There are cases where you can beat a strong team and lose the next game, so we need to prepare well until the end,” he concluded.

With the win over China, South Korea is one step closer to the gold medal, especially since their opponent in the final is a team they have beaten in the trials. But Kim is wary of the euphoria. “You can’t let your guard down and slip when you think you’ve already beaten them,” he said. “I think we’ve practiced everything for a month, so we just need to set our direction tomorrow and prepare well, and I think we’ll have a good result,” he added.

The gold medal is now just one step away. The Korean national LoL team will play the final match tomorrow at 7 p.m. local time. “We want to win the gold medal and make our fans smile for at least one game tomorrow,” Kim said.

Finally, he showed respect for the Chinese team he played against. Although he added that he could only say that because they were the winners, Kim was sincere: “I could see that they practiced a lot and put in a lot of effort while playing. I want to tell them that they worked so hard to prepare,” he said.

“Don’t cry” AG’s third straight defeat frustrates Idabin, but silver medal still well deserved

Lee Da-bin (27-Seoul City Hall), the “poster child of Korean women’s taekwondo,” shed tears as she fell short of making history.

Lee lost to China’s Zhou Zhiqi in the women’s 67kg super-superior final by a round-robin score of 1-2 (9-8 2-9 8-21) on Sunday at the Olympic Taekwondo Competition at the Lin’an Sports and Cultural Center in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province, China. Lee won her first gold medal as a high school student at the 2014 Incheon Games, competing in the under-67kg category, and then moved up to the 67kg super-supers at the 2018 Jakarta-Palembang Games, where she won another gold medal. In Hangzhou, he attempted to become the first Korean taekwondo athlete to win three consecutive Asian Games titles, but had to settle for silver after losing in the final.

Lee Da-bin is the face of women’s taekwondo in South Korea 무지개토토. She started competing in the first grade at Okdong Middle School. Her motivation is interesting. Her best friend was a taekwondo player and she didn’t want to be left out, so she joined the team. In fact, he wanted to play soccer, but the soccer team required him to live in a dormitory, which is why he joined the taekwondo team, which doesn’t have a dormitory. Her friend who introduced her to taekwondo quit early on because she didn’t fit in, but she decided to give it one more try.

Idabin started to get noticed in her freshman year at Hyojeong High School. She consistently placed first in national competitions and won a gold medal at the 2013 Junior Asian Championships. But there was a barrier to her senior year. The glory of her junior years turned toxic. “I was under a lot of pressure to win first place, and then my coach told me, ‘It’s not important to be the best, it’s important to strive to be the best,'” says Idabin. “I took that to heart and started competing. It felt like a step up,” she said. Her older sisters joined her in the fight.

In Incheon, where she was selected to compete for the national team for the first time as a high school student, she was unafraid to showcase her skills, winning a gold medal. He went on to win titles at the 2016 Asian Championships and 2017 Universiade, before stepping up his game at the 2018 Jakarta-Palembang Games to take home another gold medal. He went on to win gold at the 2018 World Grand Prix and the 2019 World Championships, before setting his sights on the final piece of the puzzle: the Tokyo Olympics.

In the semifinals of the event, Idabin fought back from 0.1 seconds down against then world number one Bianca Walkden (GBR) to reach the final. However, she lost to Milica Mandic (Serbia) in the final 7-10. Idabin showed her mature side by smiling and giving a thumbs up to Mandic, who won the gold medal after a disappointing silver. It earned him the nickname “Thumbs Up. Lee’s silver medal was the biggest win for Korean taekwondo in Tokyo.

It went downhill from there. Taekwondo peaks around the age of 25. Now an elder statesman, Idabin has been plagued by injuries and poor performances. He was knocked out in the round of 16 at the Baku World Championships and the Rome Grand Prix last month. Idabin once again filled in the gaps ahead of the Asian Games. While his style of taekwondo may not be the breathless, hard-hitting style of his former nickname, “Piter,” he used his wealth of experience and game management to challenge for a third straight title.

But it was not to be. “I’m very disappointed. I think I played a good game against a strong opponent, but there are a lot of things that I’m disappointed with,” she said, “so I’m very frustrated and uncomfortable with myself.” “My opponent fought well, too,” said Idabin, fighting back tears, “I just need to do better, and I think I lost because I didn’t do that. I need to work on that,” he lamented. “I’ve been preparing the best I can because I’ve been injured,” said Idabin. I think my opponent analysis was really good,” he said, “In the first round, I did the opposite of my usual stance and pressured him. I tried to attack with my fists and get in close to score points and take the initiative, and it worked.”

Idabin will now set her sights on Yoo Jong-mi at the Paris Olympics. He will attempt to make history by winning another ‘grand slam’. His era is far from over.

‘Carrot and stick at the same time’ Ten Haag “Why didn’t you play him, he’s been bad!”

Manager Eric ten Hagg explained Alejandro Garnacho.

Manchester United defeated Crystal Palace 3-0 in the third round (Round of 32) of the 2023-24 English Football League Cup (EFL Cup) at Old Trafford in Manchester, England, on Sunday at 4:00 a.m. ET. With the win, United advanced to the fourth round (Round of 16).

Last season, United finally broke out of the relegation zone by winning the EFL Cup. After a tumultuous start to the season, both on and off the field, the Red Devils welcomed Palace to their home turf.

Van Gaal rotated his side in a 4-2-3-1 formation. Anthony Martial was in charge up top. Garnacho, Hannibal Mebry, and Facundo Pellistri provided support in the second line. Mason Mount and Casemiro were in the midfield. The back four consisted of Sophien Amrabat, Harry Maguire, Raphael Varane, and Diogo Dalot. Andre Onana was in goal.

It was a perfect win. In the 21st minute, Dalot overlapped into the danger area and was played a pellicle pass. His cutback to the center was slotted home by Garnacho to split the net. It was a calmly executed goal as the opposition defense and contested possession threw them off balance.

The gap widened. A corner kick in the 27th minute. A Mount cross was headed sharply into the box. With a no-mark opportunity, Kasemiru scored with a deflected header. The second half was more of the same. In the 10th minute of the second half, a Casemiro cross was headed in by Martial to complete the rout. For the rest of the game, United held on to their lead and won 토토사이트.

After the game, Van Gaal spoke about Garnacho. According to global media outlet ESPN, “Van Gaal said the midfielder had not played well enough after the first two games of the season. He scored today after being left out of the starting lineup for five straight games.”

According to the outlet, Ten Haag said: “At the beginning of the season, Garnacho was not good enough. He can be a threat even when he’s not playing well. He needs to learn his role in the defense,” he said. “I want to see more performances like today, it’s very normal to have room for improvement. Everyone likes Garnacho and I like him too. He can play at a very high level and he needs to show it every day.”

First ‘2 finals in 1 day’… Busy Hwang Sun-woo to complete Super Friday

Hwang Sun-woo (Gangwon Provincial Office) will compete in the first ‘two finals in one day’ of the competition. As if he wasn’t busy enough, Hwang will complete a super gold medal day.

Hwang will compete in the men’s 200m freestyle and 400m mixed medley relay at the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games on Sunday at the Hangzhou Olympic Sports Center Pool in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province, China.

Sunwoo Hwang’s first day of competition began on the 24th. He competed in the men’s 100-meter freestyle, the 800-meter freestyle relay and the 400-meter medley relay. Hwang usually competes in the morning preliminaries and finals in the evening, but this day will be different. Following the morning heats, there will be two finals in the evening.

Sunwoo Hwang competed in the men’s 200-meter freestyle preliminaries in the morning. He raced in heat three and finished first overall out of 36 swimmers with a time of 1:47.08. He was among the top eight swimmers in his heat and punched his ticket to the finals.

There was a break in the 400-meter medley relay preliminaries. The team of Lee Ju-ho (Seogwipo City Hall, backstroke), Choi Dong-yeol (Gangwon Provincial Office, breaststroke), Kim Seo-young (Gyeongbuk Provincial Office, butterfly), and Heo Yeon-kyung (Bingsango, freestyle) finished third overall in 3:51.03. Hwang Sun-woo will swim the freestyle in the 400-meter medley relay final.

The men’s 200-meter freestyle will be the first event of the day. At 8:48 p.m. (KST), Hwang will go for his first Asian Games gold medal. This will be followed by the 400-meter medley relay at 9:57 p.m. after a one-hour break.

It’s a grueling schedule for the swimmers, who will have an hour to quickly recover, warm up and get back into competition shape.

Still, if Hwang Sun-woo performs, South Korea could complete a super Friday. Hwang is a strong favorite in the 200m freestyle. He won a bronze medal in the men’s 200m at the Fukuoka 2023 World Aquatics Championships in July, breaking the Korean record in 1:44.42. This was just 0.03 seconds off the Asian record set by Sun Yang (CHINA). It’s a sign of confidence.

Hwang told the media a day earlier (26), “Tomorrow (27) is my complete main event, the 200-meter freestyle. I don’t think I’m in bad shape right now, so I’ll take good care of myself and hopefully get the results I’ve been working so hard for,” he said, expressing his strong desire to win gold.

The mixed medley relay 400m is also worth watching. Women’s swimming sensation Kim Seo-young will be joining the team. The one-two punch of Korean men’s and women’s swimming will be highly anticipated. Korea will be looking to break the national record of 3:47.09 set at the Fukuoka World Aquatics Championships and improve on their third place finish at the 2018 Jakarta-Palembang Asian Games 토토사이트.

Meanwhile, if Hwang Sun-woo wins gold in the men’s 200m freestyle, he will make history as the first Korean swimmer to win more than one gold medal at a single Asian Games in 13 years, since Marine Boy Park Tae-hwan won three at the 2006 Doha and 2010 Guangzhou Asian Games. A podium finish in the 400-meter mixed medley relay would complete the trifecta.

Hwang will compete in the second final on day one. Will he be able to achieve his goal of a gold medal and give Korea a super golden day?

‘We’re strong!’ North Korea beat Bahrain 2-0 to reach quarterfinals… Iran also beat Thailand 2-0

North Korea and Iran have reached the men’s soccer quarterfinals of the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games.

North Korea faced Bahrain in the round of 16 men’s football match at the Hangzhou Asian Games at 5:30 p.m. on Sunday (July 27) at Zhejiang Normal University Stadium in Jinhua, China.

North Korea started in a 3-4-3. Kang Ju-hyuk was in goal, Jang Kook-chul, Kim Kyung-seok, and Kim Yoo-sung formed the back three, Ri Il-sung, Kang Kook-chul, Baek Cheong-sung, and Kim Kook-beom formed the midfield, and Kim Bum-hyuk, Ri Cho-guk, and Kim Kook-jin were the front three.

Bahrain lined up in a 5-3-2. Salman Alissa was in goal with Ahmed Ali, Abdullah Alkalash, Mohammed Abdullah, Sayed Mohammed, and Ali Hassan forming the back five. Ali Albana, Sayed Alawi, and Hussain Haruna combined in the midfield. Hussain Abdulaziz and Salman Qadeib made up the back two.

The first half was dominated by North Korea. They even rattled the Bahraini goal on one occasion. Midway through the first half, defender Jang Kook-chul headed in a corner kick. However, the goal was disallowed after a foul was called for jumping on the shoulder of a Bahraini defender during a ball contest. In the 41st minute, Baek Cheong-sung squandered a perfect one-on-one opportunity. Two minutes later, Ri Il-sung’s shot from inside the box went straight at the keeper.

In first-half stoppage time, North Korea took the lead. Kang Kuk-chol broke down the right flank and sent in a precise cross with his right foot, which was met by a non-stop header from Kang. The goalkeeper reacted late, but the ball had already crossed the goal line. The first half ended with North Korea leading 1-0.

The second half was also dominated by North Korea. They pushed Bahrain hard the entire time. In the 10th minute of the second half, North Korea had a chance to add a second goal, but the North Korean player’s touch on the ball was too long as he tried to catch the ball from the goalkeeper, and the shot was blocked. In the 15th minute, Bahrain threatened North Korea’s goal for the first time in a long time with a mid-range shot, but the goalkeeper made an easy save.

In the 17th minute of the second half, North Korea added another goal. A cross from the left flank by Ri Il-sung was cleared away by the Bahraini defense and Kim Kook-beom’s shot from outside the box hit the post. It was an exquisite trajectory that left the goalkeeper reaching out but unable to get a hand on the ball.

Bahrain had a chance in the 38th minute when the North Korean goalkeeper stepped up to take a long-range free kick, but it sailed just over the bar. In the 45th minute, Ri Joguk had a header that went wide of the post. In the end, North Korea defeated Bahrain 2-0 to advance to the quarterfinals. North Korea will face the winner of Japan-Myanmar.

At the same time as the North Korea-Bahrain match, the round of 16 matchup between Iran and Thailand took place at the Shangcheng Sports Center Stadium in Hangzhou, China.

Iran came out with a 3-4-3 formation. Seyed Hussein Hosseini in goal and Hussein Gudaraj, Sina Shahabash, and Seyed Majid Nasiri in defense. The midfield featured Kalekhabad Turanian, Omid Hamedpour, Muhammad Cudavandello, and Amir Jafari, while Amiralsalan Motahari, Mahdi Mamizadeh, and Muhammad Omri formed the back three.

Thailand countered with a 5-3-2. Nopporn Lakornporn was in goal, while Pongsakorn Trisat, Anusak Jaiphet, Songchai Thongcham, Nakin Wisetchat, and Jakrapong Sanmahung made up the defense.

The first goal belonged to Iran. Striker Motahari opened the scoring for Thailand in the first 15 minutes. Substitute Yasin Salmani added a second goal in the 37th minute. Iran’s efficient offense, which managed to convert just two shots on goal in the 90 minutes, earned them the win. They advance to the quarterfinals alongside North Korea and will meet the winner of Hong Kong-Palestine.

FIFA Official Channel highlights Park Ji-Sung’s goal against Portugal…”He’s not just a hard-working player”

“Not just a workhorse” The official channel of the Federation Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) has highlighted Park Ji-Sung once again.

Park was a member of Manchester United during their golden era. After breaking into Europe under Gus Hiddink, Park left PSV Eindhoven ahead of the 2005-06 season to join the English Premier League (EPL) giants. After seven seasons in and out of the starting lineup, Park scored 27 goals and provided 25 assists in 205 appearances for United before moving on to Queens Park Rangers (QPR).

That might not seem like a lot if you look at the stats alone. However, Park was never one to rack up offensive points, but rather to ease the burden on his teammates with his high workload. He was nicknamed the “oxygen tank,” and his high workload would have been a welcome addition to any team, and his tactical value was recognized by then-Man United manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

Park is one of the most underrated players in the game. This is because, as we’ve already explained, he rarely produces offensive points, so he’s the type of player who flies under the radar. However, fans who saw him in action know that he contributed a lot to United’s golden era.

Now, Park Ji-sung has been rediscovered. The Italian media outlet ‘Area Napoli’ published an article titled “The story of the most underrated soccer player. Few people know the story of one of the midfielders who wrote United’s history. Those who deserve more attention are often underestimated, but they are really strong and often play decisive roles for their teams. Recently, ‘Novel Soccer’ has been talking a lot about Park Ji-Sung,” he said.

According to the publication, Park played an important role in the 2011 UEFA Champions League (UCL) final between Manchester United and Barcelona. Park was tasked with actively pressuring players with the ball, which led to United’s 1-3 loss to Barcelona. Sir Ferguson later regretted that he should have instructed Park to mark Messi.

The page also quoted Rooney as saying, “Nobody seems to remember Park Ji-Sung. It’s ridiculous. The people who played with him know what a great player he was.” The page also quoted Rooney as saying that Park was recognized by those around him.

This time, the official FIFA channel highlighted Park’s goal against Portugal at the 2002 Korea-Japan World Cup. Park played for the South Korean national team from 2000 to 2011, appearing in three World Cups and scoring 13 goals in 100 A matches. Most notably, he scored against Portugal at the 2002 World Cup and became a key player in the team’s quarterfinal victory 메이저사이트.

The official FIFA World Cup channel highlighted Park’s technical goal against Portugal by saying, “Park Ji-sung=not just a hard-working player (worker).”

‘158km monster high school student’ AG utilization is a starting pitcher…”Consider starting against Hong Kong or in the last game of the qualifiers”

“We need to make sure he’s not a burden.”

Ryu Jung-il, head coach of the Korean National Baseball Team, talks about how he plans to utilize Jang Hyun-seok (19, Masan Yongmago) ahead of the team’s scrimmage against the Commerce Baseball Team at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on Saturday.

Jang Hyun-seok is the only high school player on the Ryu Joong-il team. Despite his young age, his skills are said to be good enough for the pros. This year, he threw a ball in the mid-to-high 150 kilometers, and his changeup, including a curve and slider changeup, is considered to be at a high level.

In nine high school games this year, he went 3-0 with a 0.93 ERA. In 29 innings pitched, he struck out 52 batters. His walks allowed per inning (WHIP) is just 0.79.

With such a strong performance, Jang was expected to be the No. 1 overall pick in the rookie draft, but he set his sights on a bigger stage.

Early on, he decided to try his hand at the American game and signed with the Los Angeles Dodgers for a total of $900,000. The Dodgers even prepared his jersey in advance, saying that the number 18 is worn by many top Asian players.

This is an important tournament for Jang Hyun-seok as well. If he wins a gold medal, he will be eligible for military service, which will make his journey to the big leagues easier.

Ryu said that he will utilize Jang Hyun-seok as a starter for now. Ryu said, “He’s a starter. He’s a high school student, so we’ll let him pitch when he’s not under pressure. For example, we’ll use him in the first game against Hong Kong or on the last day. He’s a young player, so we want to see how he performs on the mound. He’s going to be nervous.” To ease Jang’s nerves, Liu decided to give him the benefit of the doubt after watching him pitch out of the bullpen.

He was trying to ease the pressure, but if Jang Hyun-seok showed his guts on the mound, he could be given more responsibility. “If he’s really good, we can put him in as often as we want,” Ryu smiled.

“The bullpen pitching is good. There are some pitches that are a little high, but the ball itself is good. He’s good, so we’ll take him to the U.S.,” Liu said.

Meanwhile, the national team gets its first and last practice test against the Sangmu Baseball Team. The starting pitcher will be Kwak Bin. He will pitch three innings. Won Tae-in (2 innings), Jang Hyun-seok (1 inning), Jung Woo-young (1 inning), Ko Woo-seok (1 inning), and Park Young-hyun (1 inning) will pitch. In addition, the team has reached an agreement with the commercial side to allow pitchers and batters to play alongside the commercial players.

Moon Dong-ju will be the starting pitcher. Moon will pitch three innings, followed by Na Kyun-an (two innings) and Kim Young-gyu (one inning). The seventh and eighth innings will be pitched by Sangmu and the ninth by Choi Ji-min of the national team 메이저사이트.

The starting lineup for the national team is Kim Hye-sung (second baseman), Choi Ji-hoon (center fielder), Noh Si-hwan (third baseman), Kang Baek-ho (designated hitter), Moon Bo-kyung (first baseman), Kim Hyung-joon (catcher), Park Sung-sung (shortstop), Choi Won-joon (right fielder), and Kim Sung-yoon (left fielder). For the commercial baseball team, Yoon Dong-hee (right fielder), Kim Joo-won (shortstop), Kim Ji-chan (second baseman), and Kim Dong-heon (catcher) were deployed as batters 1-4.

The team will have a final practice on the 27th before leaving for Hangzhou on the 28th. They will play their first game against Hong Kong on October 1, followed by their second game against Chinese Taipei on October 2. On Oct. 3, they will play their final group game against the qualifiers.

Liu said, “We asked the commerce side to bunt when we have runners on first and second base, regardless of the score, so they can see our defense. (The national team players) are from different teams, so we need to get to know each other first, and if we get to first or third base, we need to steal a base so we can play defense,” Liu said.

Hangzhou AG releases statement on Kwon Soon-woo unsportsmanlike conduct controversy…”We will conduct a comprehensive review after the tournament and take appropriate measures based on the situation”

The Korean Athletes of the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games have released a statement in response to the unsportsmanlike conduct controversy involving Kwon Soon-woo (Tennis).

Kwon Soon-woo was at the center of a controversy after he smashed his tennis racket after losing his men’s singles match at the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games on Aug. 25 (KST).

World No. 112 Kwon Soon-woo lost 1-2 (3-6, 7-5, 4-6) to World No. 636 Kassidit Samrej of Thailand in the second round of the men’s singles tennis competition at the Hangzhou Olympic Sports Center in Hangzhou, China.

After suffering a shocking loss to an unknown player, he was furious and smashed his racket against the cord. It didn’t end there. Samrez shook his hand but didn’t look at him, grabbed his bag and walked off the court. Samrez put on a cool face, waved to the crowd and bowed. 메이저사이트

“The Korean National Team of the 19th Hangzhou Asian Games 2022 (Head Coach Choi Yoon) is very sorry for the unsportsmanlike conduct of Kwon Soon-woo after the conclusion of the Men’s Singles Round of 32 match (Kwon Soon-woo, Korea vs. Samrez Kassidit, Thailand) on Tuesday (25th),” the Korean team said in a statement on the afternoon of the 26th.

“We promise to conduct a comprehensive review of this matter after the tournament and take appropriate action under the circumstances, and once again, we would like to express our sincere apologies to the public who may have been disappointed by this incident.”

Jeju part ways with coach Nam Ki-il…Jung Jo-guk likely to take over

Jeju United, which has fallen into an extreme slump with one win, five draws, and 10 losses in its last 16 matches, has parted ways with head coach Nam Ki-il.

According to soccer sources, Nam left the Jeju club on May 25. Nam reportedly tendered his resignation, which was eventually accepted by the club. For the time being, head coach Chung Joguk will reportedly take over as acting head coach. 레고토토

Jeju had been struggling this season since the summer, and their hopes of reaching the Final A (Round of 6) were dashed early. Up until the 15th round, they were in third place with eight wins, three draws and four losses, no points behind second-placed Seoul, but they began to slide in June, ending with a win over Suwon Samsung on May 27.

A 3-0 home win over Suwon FC on Aug. 12 was their only victory in their last 16 matches. After a 0-1 loss at home to Daegu on Aug. 26, Nam made a concerted effort to turn the team around, asking supporters to encourage his players, but it didn’t make a difference.

A 1-3 home loss to Seoul on Nov. 23 put Nam’s job on the line.

Jeju currently has 35 points, two points behind 10th-place Suwon FC (29 points) with seven games remaining. If they don’t rebound in their remaining seven games, they could slip to 10th place, which would put them in the relegation playoffs.
