Hwang Ui-jo was not worried about Park Dong-jin’s behavior.
Seoul won 2-1 against Incheon United in the ‘Gyeongin Derby’ in the first round of ‘Hana One Q K League 1 2023’ held at Sangam World Cup Stadium on the 25th at 4:30 pm.
On this day, Park Dong-jin and Hwang Eui-jo started as Seoul’s two-top team. Park Dong-jin showed strong forward pressure from the forefront based on his vigorous activity and contributed greatly to harassing Incheon’s defense.
There were many evaluations that he was a surprise starter. Before the game, manager Ahn Ik-soo said with a smile, “I asked for the two players to play together. I’m looking forward to it, too.”
Park Dong-jin performed his role 100%. He continued to struggle to create space by breaking through the Incheon defense, and he ran without breath to distract Hwang’s attention. 스포츠토토
But he still had homework to do. It was hard to see that he had been constantly criticized for his emotional control. On this day, Park Dong-jin received a warning in the 43rd minute of the first half. Nevertheless, in the second half, he was dissatisfied with the referee’s decision, and he almost received a warning.
The situation was so serious that the team’s veteran midfielder Ki Sung-yueng ran quickly and stopped Park Dong-jin. It was similar to the incident in which coach Paulo Bento, at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, quickly ran back to the referee after the players protested after the match against Ghana. In the end, the situation ended with Park Dong-jin only receiving a verbal warning.
However, it is true that Seoul fans are still worried about Park Dong-jin’s behavior. However, Hwang Ui-jo was not worried. Hwang Ui-jo, whom we met in the mixed zone after the match, said, “Dong-jin always needs to be controlled by someone next to him. Whether it’s me or Sung-yong’s older brother, Sang-ho is there. There are many players around him who continue to control him, so I think he won’t be sent off now.” I do.” He didn’t worry too much.
