Professional soccer Jeju United is struggling to fill the void after the main scorer left. The shoulders of the newly recruited foreign strikers are heavy.
Jeju ranked 5th in the K-League 1 last year. He scored 52 goals in 38 matches, half of which came from Joo Min-kyu and Jerso.
Goal scorer Joo Min-gyu reached the top scorer threshold with 17 goals and 7 assists. Zerso, who has good dribbling, led Jeju’s attack with 8 goals and 바카라사이트7 assists.
Joo Min-gyu, who was like that, moved to Ulsan Hyundai after last season, and Jerso to Incheon United.
Jeju has to fill the gap between the two players responsible for about half of the team’s goals.
Jeju coach Nam Ki-il said at the Hana 1Q K-League 2023 winter field training media camp held at the Seogwipo Hotel in Jeju on the 7th, “Last season, Gerso and Joo Min-gyu played a big role. They played a central role and most of the goals were scored by the two players.” It’s a pity as a manager that the two players went out, and it will be a pity for the fans as well.”
Accordingly, Jeju recruited Hayes and Yuri from Brazil to strengthen their offense.
Hayes played 39 games for Gwangju FC last year and scored 12 goals and 4 assists, leading Gwangju FC to promotion to the first division. Yuri is a target striker who is nicknamed “Tank” because he is good at dominating the air and post play.
Coach Nam said, “I put the regret behind me and recruited Hayes and Yuri. I have high expectations for the two players. My fellow players are also in sync.” I am training well enough,” he said.
“Hayes has a flash. When he catches the ball, he has a flash that goes three or four ahead, not one or two. He will play the game that the fans like,” he said. I expect that he will show the part that connects with the goal because he has good preparation, body movements, and flexibility.”
Koo Ja-cheol said, “Yuri and Hayes, who have transferred, showed good performances in field training,” and “we have to show a hardened appearance as a team.”
The parties seem to be stimulated by Joo Min-gyu and Jeruso’s performance last season.
Hayes said, “Both players have good records and it shows up as an indicator, so I think it’s good for me. It helped the Jeju team.” I will show my good skills so that I can have a good season.”
Yuri said, “I heard about Joo Min-gyu, the top scorer in the previous season (2021). I feel a sense of responsibility. I am motivated by replacing the top scorer in the previous season.” “he said.
