Kim Young-kwon’s vacancy revealed in Hyundai’s derby, manager Klinsman’s worries also grew

The vacancy of Kim Young-gwon (33) was large.

Professional football Ulsan Hyundai lost 0-2 in the 110th Hyundai Derby against Jeonbuk Hyundai held at Jeonju World Cup Stadium on the 3rd. They won 2-1 in their first encounter on February 25, but collapsed in the Jeonju away match. Along with the second loss of the season, Ulsan was pushed back to 40 wins, 29 draws and 41 losses in their career record.토토사이트

It was a match where Kim Young-kwon felt a void. Kim Young-kwon, who joined Ulsan at the end of 2021, was in charge of the defense. He showed a sense of stability worthy of a national team defender. Although he was a defender, he played a key role in Ulsan’s air defense with his bold forward passing. Above all, he was healthy. He played in 36 games last year and 15 this year. However, in the 15th round match against Daejeon on the 25th of last month, he collapsed with a hamstring injury in the 25th minute of the first half.

Ulsan’s defense faltered after Kim Young-gwon’s injury. He conceded 3 goals against Daejeon. He also allowed 2 goals against Jeonbuk. The solid defense he showed all season collapsed. On this day, the decrease in concentration of the Ulsan defense team was noticeable. In all the conceded scenes, the opposing striker momentarily missed. Jeong Seung-hyun came as a substitute, but it was too much to fill the void. His offensive development was also affected. Kim Young-kwon is a defensive player, but he has bold forward passing skills. Ulsan took the initiative, but the attack was not smooth. Kim Young-gwon’s gap was too great.

Soccer team coach Jürgen Klinsmann, who watched the match on the spot, deepened his concerns. Kim Young-kwon was also a key resource in the soccer team. He has been active as the main defender since former manager Paulo Bento. He also competed in the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. It was an immovable selection resource in the second A-match in March after Klinsman took over as coach.

Coach Klinsmann’s defense plan needs a big change. Kim Young-kwon, who is recovering from a hamstring injury, is uncertain whether he will participate in an A-match in June. It was diagnosed that his muscles were damaged and he needed time to recover. Furthermore, Kim Min-jae (27, Naples) is away for basic military training. Kim Min-jae was scheduled to enlist at the training center on the 15th. Cho Yoo-min (27, Daejeon), who was consistently selected for the national team, also withdrew due to injury. It seems that a lot of new faces will be selected.
