Suwon Samsung, a professional soccer team that is trying to escape the crisis by changing the command tower, has reduced the range of changes to the coaching staff for the continuity of the team. As a result, some point out that there is a lack of will to reform.
On the 8th, Suwon, which is at the bottom of the K-League 1, held a press conference for manager Kim Byung-soo’s inauguration and predicted a change.
Coach Kim, who led Gangwon FC from August 2019 to November 2021 and earned the nickname ‘Byeongsu Ball’ for attacking football, was dropped as a firefighter in Suwon on the 4th.
Suwon was sluggish with 2 draws and 8 losses in the opening 10 games this season, but on the 5th, Suwon defeated Incheon United 1-0 and succeeded in victory.
However, they are still at the bottom of the league, 5 points behind 11th-place Gangwon (10 points).
Suwon, which is making a fresh start under manager Kim’s system, aims for the first consecutive win of the season in the Hana One Q K League 1 2023 Round 12 home game against Jeonbuk Hyundai (11 points) scheduled for the 10th.
Suwon, who used the shock therapy of changing the command tower, also reshuffled some of the coaching staff.
However, it is controversial because the scope of change is small, such as promoting or retaining coaches who have worked in Suwon for several years. Criticism was also poured out that he had already brought in failed coaches.
In fact, head coach Joo Seung-jin, who will assist coach Kim, started as a coach at Maetan Middle School, a youth team affiliated with the Suwon club in 2010, and served as general youth director, first-team coach and head coach.
In the 2020 season, he worked as head coach for coach Lim-saeng Lee, and after coach Lee’s resignation, he served as acting coach.
Coach Oh Jang and Juninyo’s physical coach are also people who worked under former coach Lee Byeong-geun. Kim Joo-pyo, the second-team physical coach, is also a former youth team coach in Suwon, and goalkeeper coach Shin Hwa-yong is also from the club and served as a youth team goalkeeper coach.
The command tower has been changed to a stranger who has no ties to Suwon, but the coaching staff is actually filled with people who have worked in the past.
Regarding this, coach Kim said, “It was difficult to organize the coaching staff. The biggest stumbling block was the midway appointment.
He added, “I didn’t understand the Suwon players at all, but I thought it would take a long time to figure out if new coaches came and didn’t know the players well. The first thing was to understand Suwon the best 토토사이트.”
Regarding the re-appointment of head coach Seung-jin Joo, he explained, “I know that there is a lot of talk,” but “Considering the players, I needed a coach who knew well internally.
An official from the Suwon club also said, “Director Kim contacted several coach candidates, but in order to overcome the crisis as soon as possible, he hoped for scout Joo Seung-jin, who has leadership skills and knows the players well, as the head coach.”
In addition, regarding coaches Jang Jang Oh and Juninyo, he added, “For the continuity of team training, the coaches decided to remain current without changing their roles.”
From Coach Kim’s point of view, it can be said that he made the best choice to quickly identify players.
However, some point out that it is difficult to understand the decision to retain the coaching staff who have not produced proper results for a long time because of continuity.
In the end, in order to put an end to controversy, grades must be backed up. This is the reason why Kim Byeong-su-ho and Suwon’s actions are attracting attention.
