GS Caltex, a professional volleyball women’s team entering its first match of the season, will appear with great expectations from coach Cha Sang-hyun.
Coach Cha expressed his excitement, saying, “I have a lot of expectations,” ahead of the 2023-24 season Dodram V-League women’s division game against Jeonggwanjang Red Sparks held at Jangchung Gymnasium in Seoul on the 20th.
Coach Cha said, “I’m looking forward to seeing what kind of performance our players will show. There’s a clear difference between practice and actual play, so I’m looking forward to it overall, and I’m also looking forward to seeing what kind of good performance they will show in the first official game after Daeyoung Jeong joins. “We are also looking forward to the mercenaries’ performance,짱구카지노” he emphasized.
What was the preparation like during the off-season?
Coach Cha commented, “Compared to last season, the height has definitely improved.” He continued, “Oh Se-yeon will be brought in over time, and if civilization is possible, she may be brought in as well,” and added, “These players need to perform well, and a change in atmosphere is also needed when Kwon Min-ji comes in.”
On the other hand, I was very worried about Setterjin. Regarding Iris Tolenada (174cm), who came from the Philippines to the Asian Quarter, and Kim Ji-won, who was called up to the Asian Games, Coach Cha said, “Tolenada can be used as a replacement. That much is ready.” He added, “Kim Ji-won needs to improve his sense of the game. “I was worried that because I stayed in the warm-up zone for a long time with the national team, the actual amount of practice or number of appearances was lacking.”
He continued, “When I returned after the Asian Games, my balance and physical condition were very poor. I am worried about how to use Tolenada and Ji-won Kim. I think it will take time.”
Regarding his first opponent, Jeong Kwan-Jang, he revealed his true feelings, saying, “Actually, I was very surprised when I saw Jeong Kwan-Jang’s first game.” Coach Cha, who said, “I felt it wouldn’t be easy with this level of performance,” expressed his surprise once again, saying, “The power of the Ssangpo is not just strong, it is really strong.” However, he said, “In the end, volleyball is played by people,” and added, “There is definitely a flow, so we will now focus on how much of that flow we can bring and on fighting foreign players.”
