Kim In-seong, who will add speed to Pohang football “I have confidence in speed competition with Um Won-sang and Lee Dong-jun”

Kim In-seong (Pohang Steelers), who returned to the K-League 1 stage, expressed confidence that he would not be defeated in the speed competition with the young junjok who represent the league.

On the 6th, a press conference was held in Pohang for the ‘2023 K-League Winter Field Training Media Camp’ at the Seogwipo Cal Hotel in Seogwipo, Jeju. Pohang, which conducted the first battery training in Hanoi, Vietnam in January, has been conducting the second battery training in Seogwipo, Jeju since February.

This season, the top teams in the K-League come into the season equipped with weapons with terrifying speed. In Ulsan Hyundai, Um Won-sang, who put the team at the top of the league last season, continues to lead the team’s attack. Jeonbuk Hyundai recruited Lee Dong-jun, who returned after experiencing the German stage. And Pohang brought ‘Speed ​​Racer’ Kim In-seong from Seoul E-Land FC.

Kim In-seong, who met reporters through the media camp, is 8 years older than Lee Dong-jun and Um Won-sang, respectively, but he is confident that he will not lose in the speed fight. “I don’t know what will happen when I get older later, but I am confident now. Both players are very fast players and know how to use their speed.

This is also what Pohang coach Ki-dong Kim is looking forward to. Coach Kim, who attended the press conference ahead of Kim In-seong, explained the background of Kim In-sung’s recruitment, saying, “I pursue a style that goes straight and quickly to the opponent’s goal. So I needed a speedy player like In-seong.”

Coach Kim is an excellent leader who has the ability to take veteran players to the next level. The fact that all of the major recruits 안전놀이터this season, including Kim In-seong, are over 30 is in line with his confidence in this. Manager Kim expressed his wish, “Inseong (34), Seongdong (32), and Jong-woo (30) are here, and I hope it will be a year that shows the resurgence of new players.”

Kim In-seong, who is well aware of this, is trying to quickly melt into Pohang football. “I almost died from the exhaustion during physical training. I am confident in running, but it was very difficult because I was not physically fit. Now I am learning what position I should stand in depending on the situation. It’s done. The players who accepted the coach’s soccer well showed a step forward. If I understand and follow the coach’s soccer well, I can be like that too.”

The goal that Kim In-seong wants to achieve by taking a step forward is clear. Kim In-seong chose double-digit scoring as his goal in the league. If he plays in 20 more games, he can reach 300 appearances in the K-League career, but breaking through 10 goals is a priority. Kim In-seong, who has never scored 10 league goals, has 9 goals in the 2019 season.
