“Football is like war.”
Kim Byung-soo (53), the new coach of Suwon Samsung, chose the reality right in front of him, not the ideal. Will he be able to save Suwon from an unprecedented crisis?
On the morning of the 8th,바카라사이트 the 8th coach of Suwon Kim Byung-soo held his inaugural media day at the Suwon Samsung Clubhouse located in Hwaseong-si, Gyeonggi-do. In his first public appearance, he emphasized that he would realistically lead the team, saying that he had to overcome the immediate crisis.
Earlier, on the 4th, Suwon appointed coach Kim Byung-soo in the vacant command tower position. His contract expires at the end of December 2024. Suwon chose coach Kim Byung-soo, who had no contact with the club, and broke away from the ‘Real Blue’ stance that had been going on for a while.
The first task given to director Kim Byung-soo is clear. it’s survival Aside from satisfying aggressive and leading football, once you have efficiently accumulated points, you can avoid the humiliation of the first relegation in the club’s history.
Suwon is currently at the bottom of the leaderboard with 1 win, 2 draws and 8 losses, with 5 points. The gap with 11th place Gangwon (10 points) is 5 points. I took a breather by winning the long-awaited first win against Incheon on the 5th, but I still have a long way to go.
Director Kim Byung-soo, who was appointed as a firefighter, also repeatedly emphasized ‘reality’. During his time at Gangwon FC, he created the so-called ‘byungsoo ball’ wind with ball ownership and passing through a numerical superiority based on high spatial understanding, but it is expected that it will be difficult to find it in Suwon for a while.
From the first words of his inauguration speech, coach Kim Byeong-soo said, “I am aware that this is a difficult situation. It is a situation that anyone can be afraid of. I won’t, but I’ll try to show you how to improve little by little with confidence.”
As the season is in full swing, it is true that it is difficult to make drastic changes right away. Aside from whether the current squad is suitable for ‘byeongsoo ball’, it is close to impossible to immediately apply a new tactical color to a team driven to the brink.
Coach Kim Byung-soo said, “It is true that the balance of the team has been broken. We need to seek change here, but I do not intend to do it radically. We have to understand the current situation well and seek change little by little,” he said. “Suwon is not my only team. It’s too foolish to just do what I want to do. There’s not enough time to force the players to play football that doesn’t suit them.”
Instead, director Kim Byung-soo announced that he would focus on ‘changing the atmosphere’. He stressed, “There won’t be any big changes tactically, but the style cannot. We have to create an atmosphere where the players enjoy the ball.”
He also emphasized the atmosphere again, saying, “All I can do is find a way to make the atmosphere positive. Focusing only on the results makes the team more impatient. I have to make the players play without any pressure on the field.” .
Of course, there was also a strong message. Coach Kim Byung-soo said, “I don’t like nagging, but I said one or two things. I told the team not to do what I wanted to do, but to do what I had to do.”
He added, “It’s a really difficult situation. Football is like war. You can’t win every time, and you can’t win just because you want to win. The important thing is to stay together whether you win or lose.”
It looks like they are putting ideals aside for the sake of immediate survival. In order to try the change Kim Byung-soo wants, he must first enter into a stable zone. He also opened up the future, saying, “It is important to do what needs to be done right now.
