Kim Byung-soo, the head coach of professional soccer’s K League 1 Suwon Samsung,토토사이트 has embraced his players after a rivalry loss.
Suwon lost 0-1 to FC Seoul in their Hana OneQ K League 2023 Round 29 Super Match at Suwon World Cup Stadium on Sunday.
Suwon, which has lost all three of its SuperMatches this season, has a record of five wins, seven draws and 17 losses (22 points) and faces relegation.
“They were better in the first half, but we weren’t bad in the second half,” said Kim, “but soccer is a game where you have to score goals. The goal we conceded early on was painful, but that one goal ultimately decided the winner and the loser,” he reflected.
“But I don’t want to say that because we lost today that they were better than us. On a positive note, our players did their best.”

However, Suwon is now in a position where they have to realistically worry about the worst-case scenario, which is a relegation PO. In the K League 1 this season, 12th place is relegated and 11th and 10th place are guillotined for the promotion PO.
Coach Kim said, “The calculation that we need to win a few more games is still not good. “It’s clear that we didn’t get better today, but we didn’t get worse either,” Kim said, adding that the situation could change depending on how we play in the future.
“To put it simply, it’s best to win everything,” he said, adding, “I hope that the situation where we recognize, accept, and try again will continue.”
Finally, Kim was asked, “Is the current Suwon squad capable of winning it all?” and said, “I have to say yes. If I don’t believe in our players, who will I believe in in this world? I will believe in my players until the end,” and embraced the players to the end.
