Professional football K League 1 ‘traditional name’ Suwon Samsung faced the biggest crisis by failing to win the first league again.
Suwon lost 2-3 to Jeju United in the Hana One Q K League 1 2023 round 7 home game held at Suwon World Cup Stadium on the 15th.
With this, Suwon, who recorded 2 consecutive league losses, could not get out of the bottom place with 2 points. In addition, in the league, it continues to suffer from the worst sluggishness of 7 games without a win (2 draws and 5 losses) after the opening.
In the third round of the Korea Football Association (FA) Cup held on the 12th, Suwon seemed to succeed in rebounding the mood by winning 3-1 against Ansan Greeners of the K League 2. Suwon, who won their first official victory this season through the FA Cup, tried to continue their momentum in the league, but fell into shock once again with a three-line come-from-behind defeat.
Jeju also was in the bottom 10th place in the league before the game, so Suwon should have had the least points at home, but Basani’s opening goal in the 7th minute of the first half failed to keep and lost the game.
In particular, at the post-game press conference that day, head coach Lee Byung-geun, who was in shock after losing seven games in a row, made a meaningful statement saying, “We must take responsibility for the results,” representing the recent team atmosphere that has subsided by announcing that he will consider his future.
Suwon, who barely survived last season’s promotion playoffs, tried to restore their honor this season, but things are not going their way. Ace Oh Hyeon-gyu moved to Scotland Celtic ahead of the season and his power weakened, but his concentration is particularly weak in the game. 안전놀이터
The next opponent for Suwon, who has yet to win in the league this season and is heading into the worst mood, is rival FC Seoul.
Suwon will have its first super match this season against FC Seoul on the 22nd at the Seoul World Cup Stadium. The two teams stayed side by side in the lower split last season, but the atmosphere this season is quite different.
While Suwon lags behind in last place, Seoul is showing a different look by occupying the top spot in third place. If Suwon loses even the super match, he cannot avoid more than 1 loss.
At this rate, direct relegation in the next season is expected to be inevitable. Suwon, a prestigious club that once represented the K-League, is not the only one with face.
