“Wouldn’t the coach expect all the newly recruited players?”먹튀검증
Kim Bo-kyung (34, Suwon Samsung), who built a new character for soccer fans with ‘KBK’ as a YouTuber, got out of Jeonbuk Hyundai, which is trying to rebuild as a young player in the winter transfer market, and wore Suwon Samsung’s blue uniform. As a playing coach, he is the second oldest after Yeom Ki-hoon (40), who is really the last active player this year, but his skills are never inferior to those of players in their early and mid-20s.
Kim Bo-gyeong’s picturesque pass that penetrates between spaces is like an oasis in Suwon, where you feel thirsty in the desert. His European career playing for Cardiff City in the English Premier League is a guaranteed check. Cerezo Osaka, Kashiwa, and Raysol are seasoned in the Japanese J-League, where Janpass is the basis, and Ulsan Hyundai and Jeonbuk put the K-League into their bodies.
Kim Bo-kyung, the nucleus of Suwon’s strategy “There are many young players with potential”
It is no exaggeration to say that manager Lee Byung-geun and coaching staff also believed in Kim Bo-kyung and formed the framework for offense and defense. If Ko Seung-beom, who returned from military service with Kim Bo-kyung as the axis, beats the competition by running like a cheetah, Jeong Seung-won and Ryu Seung-woo’s space penetration, Kim Gyeong-joong and Jeon Jin-woo’s breakthrough, Ahn Byung-joon and Mulich, and Acosti’s finish, You can put dots on a picture where everything runs like lube.
Of course, Kim Bo-kyung is not alone in taking charge of Suwon’s soccer. Kim Bo-kyung believed in the potential of the Suwon team, which had many players in their early and mid-20s. The same was true of Kim Bo-kyung, whom I met during winter training in Jeju Island ahead of the opening ceremony. He himself is the present who has experienced the past,
“There are a lot of young players with great potential in Suwon. There are juniors who are likely to grow big later on while playing together, and there are friends who will be fine if they are well groomed. The frequency of talking to juniors who don’t know me well is increasing as well, if they want to know.”
It is Kim Bo-kyung’s idea that everything is consequentialism. If he plays as the main player and the results are not good (failed to win the championship by the standards of his former team, Jeonbuk), Kim Bo-kyung’s inability to adapt to the pace of the game, which is heading into his mid-30s, can be cited as a major problem.
“When any team is performing well, we don’t talk about it (older seniors are a problem). If it’s not a little bad, it can be pointed out that the speed is slowed down by the senior players. In fact, the seniors also have a role to play. Experience. The ability to see and adjust the flow of the game in the game. However, when a large number of young players are recruited and the situation changes, there is no way for the senior players to do that. That was difficult.”
Cheol-soon Choi (36), a franchise star who has played in Jeonbuk since 2006, is holding out by renewing his contract every year. Yeom Ki-hoon and Jeonbuk’s motive. In the absence of franchise stars, Choi Chul-soon is the symbol of Jeonbuk. Unless he announces his retirement or the club tells him to go to another team, Choi Cheol-soon has a strong will to play with Jeonbuk’s green blood until the end. However, it is not easy to endure when cost reduction and negative performance are compounded like waves.
“Actually, Cheol-soon hyung has a body that can go to the game, and even with a little training, he runs really well. You still have to say that he is born, but it is difficult to get a chance (for team rebuilding). They say they want to continue playing and want to retire in Jeonbuk. I think it will be a difficult choice no matter what.”
Until the main axis of the team is established, it must grow with the help of seniors, and
any team must have a harmony between the senior, middle, and young blood to achieve good results and not expose discord well outside. This year, the foreigner system is 5+1, and the participation is 3+1. There is even a mandatory entry rule for under 22 (U-22). Players of a similar age as Kim Bo-kyung are the ‘kinky generation’, so even if they have skills, it is a war to enter the list of 18 players. If Kim Bo-kyung was in Jeonbuk, he would have to shed silent tears due to various systems that would be difficult to even dream of starting.
“Actually, I think I’m the last root (in this generation). Players around the age of 33 or 34 have experienced a generation. Since this year, the direction has changed a lot, so if you look at many teams now, there are few first-class players. In Jeonbuk, there were originally a lot of seniors, so they weren’t at the senior level. If you listen to (the situation of other teams), (Shin) Jin-ho and (Shin) Kwang-hoon seem to be the main pillars.”
A generational change is a fate that any team must accomplish, but Kim Bo-kyung’s theory is that orderly and harmonious changes can be successful.
“I also played when I was young, but until I became the main player of the team, I learned it naturally with the help of my seniors by playing games with my seniors.
I could have stayed longer in Jeonbuk, where I had one more year left until this year, but I didn’t want to settle down and chose the challenge and headed to Suwon. In the process, it is said that the role of Park Ji-seong (42), technical director (technical director), who gave Kim Bo-kyung the nickname “the second Park Ji-sung,” was of great help.
“From last year, Jeonbuk tried to let a lot of young players play. In fact, my opportunities to participate have decreased a lot. During the process, (Park) Ji-sung hyung was a little considerate.”
For Kim Bo-gyeong, who was aware of the direction in which the club and manager Kim Sang-shik were leading the team, it was a transfer that was as difficult to prevent as water flowing from a valley to the beach.
“I heard that this year, both the manager and the club recruited a lot of players. Actually, I could have stayed one more year, but Director Park said, ‘You may not get more opportunities than last year. Then you may have a harder time.’ That’s right. If a soccer player doesn’t get a chance for a year, it hurts his mental or career. He told me to look for (a new club) carefully and choose it in the best possible environment. It’s something that never happened, and it’s a conversation I wouldn’t even have. It was fortunate that I transferred without feeling bad.”
Transfer to Suwon naturally with the help of technical director Park Ji-seong
It is a difficult reality to have a beautiful breakup. In such a situation, Director Park acted as a tuner, leading to a win-win effect for each other. This is an example of how important the existence of a technical director, who is expected to play a major role in the game, is confirmed.
It is Kim Bo-kyung’s idea that he wants senior level players to be respected even a little bit. In Japan’s J-League, which is always compared and told to refer to, the players confidently challenge themselves even at an age that has passed the age of injustice. Kim Bo-kyung pointed out that this is the result of the environment and perception differences.
“I think it’s a problem with the league system. I hope there will be a culture in which club officials respect older players or players with a long experience. However, in Korea, I only see a system based on the words ‘current-immediately-this year’. Long-term plans It’s not just how we’ll play this year. After the season is over, how will we play next year? I can only see these thoughts. (K-League and J-League) I wonder if there’s such a difference. In the J-League, even the second division is doing well. “
As Kim Bo-kyung said, in the K-League, it is rare for top executives such as the club’s CEO or general manager to last for a long time. ‘Some’ corporate clubs are still recognized as places where executives of affiliates of parent companies build their last career right before retirement. ‘Some’ provincial and provincial clubs are spoils of non-community after the election. No matter how much the CEO academy opens, it fails to properly manage the club or appoint a coach, so it repeats the old practice of calling and asking existing soccer administrators before appointing them.
As a reflex action, there is anticipation for the key players who made it to the semifinals of the 2002 Korea-Japan World Cup by taking administrative or technical positions to change the culture, but on the contrary, it is also true that there is a sense of disappointment. Not everyone is smart and not everyone is an expert. The reason why it is expected that if a little more time passes, those who ate European waters, such as Kim Bo-kyung, who won the bronze medal at the 2012 London Olympics, Ki Sung-yong (FC Seoul), and Koo Ja-cheol (Jeju United), will emerge as leaders and administrators and create a better environment than the current one. all.
“Now, people from the 2002 generation are in the football world as coaches and administrators, and in a few years, I think our (London) generation or older brothers will do (administration, etc.) once. It will change once in a while, It will take time. In my case, I have not yet thought of becoming a coach, so I did not take on the challenge of obtaining a license. If you want to do anything, it seems that there are many things in soccer. Most vaguely, when you retire, you naturally want to become a leader. That’s how it is. If I try to do it, I think something will be difficult. I need to be prepared.”
what is that preparation?
“For example, if I set a goal to become a soccer player, I prepare for it with the will to go pro. There are cases where you get a license and then do it. It is difficult to play the soccer you want and the time is too short, so I wonder if it is difficult. There are people who start right away and fail and fail and then finally get recognized. Just looking at that, I think it’s not easy. . These days, it’s even more so because the fans’ eyes for football are also keen.”
The reason why it is difficult for Korean players to advance to Europe is the lack of player exposure due to
leadership and administration. In the end, advanced soccer experience is essential to change the Korean soccer culture, which is stereotypical and incapable of innovation. For Kim Bo-kyung, playing for Cartiff City is an asset, and the complicated process of returning to Asia from Europe due to work permit (work permit) issues is a good resource for understanding players who are likely to walk a similar path later.
There are slight differences among experienced players about the challenge method of players aiming to advance to Europe, but their thoughts are similar. Park Joo-ho (Suwon FC), who went from the Japanese J-League to the Swiss Super League and then to the German Bundesliga, expressed the opinion that it is good to take on a challenge if there is an opportunity and advance step by step. What about Bokyung Kim?
“There is no pressure (for entering Europe), but in fact the goal is the same. No matter which league you go to, it is to succeed somehow. It’s difficult and not everyone can do it. You have to go when the opportunity comes, and you know when it will come later. Honestly, isn’t it more difficult than becoming a member of the national team?”
Qatar World Cup star Cho Kyu-seong, who played together in Jeonbuk, chose a summer transfer. It is the final decision made by the individual.
“The reason many J-League advances to Europe is not because of their skills, but because of their system. European scouts can comfortably work with J-League players, and the relationship with player agents (agents) has been good. However, in the K-League, for example, let’s say AB players have the same ability. (Cho) Kyu-seong and (Oh) Hyun-kyu both have the talent to go to Europe, but only Hyun-kyu went. If they were in the J-League, more players would have I can go out, but in Korea, European scouts or information from Europe doesn’t come in. Calmly, in Korea, the agent’s ability is the most important, and in Japan, in addition to the agent’s ability, the team and system itself are too good, so won’t scouts see more options? . It was difficult when I went to Europe, but even now I think it’s actually difficult to actually introduce the players.”
In short, even if the K-League matches are properly exposed in Europe, you can look at them with a little more interest and put potential players on the recruitment list, but that is not the environment or administration.
“Everyone is focused on one season this year and how the K-League is doing this year. For example, if you set a goal to increase the number of spectators, last year the average was 8,000, but this year, 9,500 people are satisfied. I’m not saying it’s wrong, but I know it’s difficult to start, so I have to watch it for a long time and prepare, but it’s a pity. Jeonbuk-do’s average audience has fallen. Looking at the attitude of the clubs, they seem to think that they don’t come because of their performance. There aren’t many fans like that. Jeonbuk is full. I’ve never done it before, but when the A team plays, they come from all over the place, including Seoul, Busan, Jeju Island, etc. I wonder where on earth so many fans come from.”
We are doing the same thing 10 years ago, 10 years later.
If performance is an important factor, the conditions for making it must be well prepared, but the issue of stadium rental must be solved first. The Suwon World Cup Stadium, the home stadium of Suwon, has a special structure, so pre-training before the home opening against Gwangju FC requires a fee to be paid to the World Cup Stadium Management Foundation. The condition of the ground is worse than that of rice paddies in summer.
“If we improve the quality of the game, many fans come to visit us? It is obvious to anyone. But it is not easy. It’s really unfortunate. There is no other investment to improve the quality. In the rain or summer, the grass is hollow and the players play on it. In doing so, they raise the quality of the game. They tell the players to work harder, but they are doing it as usual. Around They said, ‘I used to be a soccer fan.’ I wondered why it was in the past tense. I wonder if it’s because the K-League doesn’t have much in life. It won’t be easy to get into that life, and it will take a long time.”
Even in the midst of deep contemplation, he did not forget the optimistic outlook that if young players in Suwon develop their dreams or dig into their know-how by watching even a little more of Yeom Ki-hoon or himself and other representative players in the squad, it will help not only the club but also Korean football in the future.
“There are a lot of young players, so I want to help a lot besides soccer. For example, when I was 23 now, (Park) Ji-seong hyung, (Ki) Seong-yong, (Lee) Chung-yong hyung, etc. Looking at the great seniors, I thought, ‘I want to live like that too.’ Seeing how they’ve been doing, it was very helpful just to be together. So, if there is a player like that on a team, it will help the younger players. It will be a lot.”
This is Kim Bo-kyung, who absolutely does not want to lead the way to the promotion playoffs he experienced last year. It is important for him to show good performance, but he needs overwhelming support from fans. It is better if there are more than 20,000 average spectators. The glory of Suwon, which was the number one in mobilizing spectators in the past, will lead to the drive to enter Final A (1st to 6th place).
“There are many things to do. In the past few years, the relegation battle has become more intense. If you think about it, fans don’t come because football is fun. There are many games that are not fun to watch. But the seats are full. In fact, there is a limit to what players can do. Clubs or professional football federations have to do it. But I said this 10 years ago, why are you still saying the same thing 10 years later? There is.”
With tasks and concerns that are difficult to solve right away, Kim Bo-kyung starts a new season. He is the nucleus of Suwon’s tactics, and he sets off with a determination to show his ability to challenge whenever Team A calls.
