Gwangju drew 1-1 in the 14th round of Hana One Q K League 1 2023 against Incheon United held at the Incheon Soccer Stadium on the 20th.

Both teams couldn’t decide the winner with Ahn Young-gyu and Kwon Jin-jin, two center backs scoring one goal each. Gwangju took 7th place (4 wins, 3 draws, 7 losses, 15 points), and Incheon ranked 10th (3 wins, 5 draws, 6 losses, 14 points).

Um Ji-seong started the game from the bench that day. In the early 34th minute of the first half, he was replaced by Jeong Ji-hoon and stepped on the ground. He tried two shots, but failed to make them effective.

After the game, Um Ji-seong, whom we met in the Mixed Zone (joint coverage area), said, “Even though we scored the first goal after not being able to run the game as we had prepared, we ate a goal that way because we weren’t good at managing the game we wanted.”

“I came in as a substitute and many other players came in as substitutes, but I couldn’t keep up with the game tempo well. So I think I couldn’t play the soccer I wanted to do more. The only thing I can take comfort in is that I ended my losing streak in away games and 1 point. I will pick it up and go back.”

Um Ji-seong was selected for the Korean U-24 national team led by coach Hwang Seon-hong during the A-match in March and played an away friendly game in Qatar, but suffered an injury and missed four games.

The reason coach Lee Jeong-hyo let Um Ji-seong start from the bench on this day is interpreted as considering the upcoming weekday FA Cup schedule along with the recent call-up of Hwang Seon-hong in May.

Regarding performance after the injury, Um Ji-seong said, “It’s the same that I haven’t improved (my body), but I wonder if the team as a whole is not playing well because I haven’t improved. I think it’s good, so I also have a lot of responsibility.”

He added, “Anyway, I think that this is a difficult moment, and instead, I think that there will be good moments if I continue to challenge without giving up.”

Regarding the atmosphere in the locker room after the game, he said, “Rather than getting angry when the players or coaching staff are in a state of intense emotions after the game, let’s comfort them if they are on the same team and create a positive atmosphere to see how we can do better in the next game.” “he said.

“Similarly, he thought it was fortunate that we went on an expedition to break a losing streak and collect points, and (Director Lee Jeong-hyo) said that.”
