Ki Sung-yueng, a veteran and spiritual landlord of FC Seoul, looked confused. 토토사이트 He started as a central midfielder in the 34th round Final B 1st round of the Hana One Q K League 1 2023 at Seoul World Cup Stadium on the 22nd and played full time for 90 minutes to help his team win 2-1.
Already in his mid-30s, he is showing off his unwavering class, ranking fourth overall 1948 and fifth in key passes. Having played as one of the European Taegeuk Warriors representing Korean soccer in the 2010s, he ended his European life in the summer of 2020 and returned to his former team Seoul. Before moving away from his heyday, he was determined to return to the K League to breathe with fans and win the trophy to Seoul.
However, it has not been an easy journey. Apart from individual performances, Seoul’s performance, which dreams of rebuilding a prestigious family, was not good. The head coach has also changed twice. Ki Sung-yueng made the FA Cup final stage last year and even scored a goal in the first round, but eventually lost the trophy to Jeonbuk Hyundai. In the first half of this season, the team once ranked second in the league, but lost to Jeonbuk 0-2 in the final round of the regular league 33rd round on the 8th, falling to seventh place, equivalent to Final B, and staying in the lower league for the fourth consecutive year.
Ki Sung-yueng, who met right after his victory over Gangwon, said ‘I’m sorry’ six times. I’m glad I won, he said. However, I personally felt sorry for going down to Final B. I believed I would go to the top league Final A this year. But it was wrong because of our lack. I just feel sorry for the fans. Personally, it’s still very difficult, and I can’t recover well, he confessed.
The bus has already left, he said. In fact, it felt like this season was over. It was futile, he said. I told the players before the match against Gangwon that I wanted them to think about their values as professionals. I don’t know if that motivated me, but it was still good that the players did their best.
The reason why I feel particularly sorry is that the contract with Seoul ends this year. Called Seoul’s living legend, he returned from Europe to lift the trophy and honorably paint his second soccer life. The Seoul supporter hopes to envision another future through an extended contract with Ki.
What would he think. Ki Sung-yueng said, In fact, we did well in the first half of the year. Personally, I was very disappointed because I was completely defeated to Final B. I can’t let this go because I’m a senior player, and I’m in a position, he said. The biggest concern about the negotiation of the extension contract is whether I’m helpful to the team or not. I think about that a lot, he said. Also, The contract is ending this year, but I don’t know what the team will need. I think FC Seoul needs a generational change. I’m thinking about whether I’ll be helpful in that regard. Anyone can come to such a time, and I think I need to think clearly and decide on my future, he stressed.
