Lee Gi-je, who prioritizes ‘blue and white red’ over ‘Taegeuk mark’, “I can go up enough”

Suwon Samsung lost to Ulsan Hyundai after a bloody battle. Lee Gi-je, who played a big role in ‘1 goal, 1 help’, thinks of Suwon before the Taegeuk mark.

Suwon lost 2-3 to Ulsan in the 14th round of the ‘Hanawon Q K League 1 2023’ held at Suwon World Cup Stadium at 6:00 pm on the 21st. This put Suwon (8 points) in 12th place.

It was hard to believe that the two teams at the top and bottom of the league table were fierce. Ulsan took the lead with Rubiksson’s opening goal in the 5th minute of the first half. Suwon responded with Ahn Byung-Jun’s goal in the 8th minute of the first half. Ulsan took 스포츠토토 the lead again in the 40th minute with a wonderful goal by Kim Young-kwon.

The second half was the same. In the 16th minute of the second half, Suwon balanced the game with a wonderful goal from a free kick by Lee Ki-je. Right before the end of the game, Ulsan laughed. Martin Adam calmly finished the penalty kick (PK) won by Seol Young-woo and scored the winning goal. In the end, Suwon lost 2-3 to Ulsan.

After the match, I met Lee Ki-je in the Mixed Zone. He scored 1 goal and 1 assist with his sharp left foot, worthy of the Korean national team, but unfortunately bowed his head. Although the result was not good, Suwon confirmed the possibility today. Captain Lee Ki-je is not frustrated and only looks forward.

Q. How did you feel about the game?

A. I believed that I could win. There were also some that were intimidated by quick conceding. But unlike before, they came together and scored quickly. I was able to go in a good mood, but I was unfortunately defeated.

Q. 1 goal, 1 help

A. The team situation is not good, so I personally try to be of some help from the training ground. It seems that the parts where I practiced a little more led to scoring.

Q. Free kick Wonder Goal

A. I thought about passing it to a teammate or shooting myself. It went in well with a strong kick with the Papost.

Q. Escape from the bottom

A. Players believe that even 3-4 wins can be enough to rise to the middle ranks. The team atmosphere isn’t bad either. I think that as long as the will to do it is strong enough, it can go up.

Q. The team’s cohesion

A. We kept talking about being united. The director also gave me a lot of good words. It seems that all the players are aware of that part and stick together.

Q. After the change of manager

A. Originally, there was a tendency to collapse when losing. Today, I saw hope in the way he was trying to catch up. I’m not satisfied, but there seems to be hope.

The coach talks a lot to remind me of the mental part rather than the soccer part. That part helps the players a lot.

Q. Teammate Kim Young-kwon of the national team Wonder Goal

A. (Kim) Young-gwon hyung is also very good at kicking. But in that position, he didn’t know how to hit like that.

Q. A match in June

A. Right now, I think I will gain strength only when the team does well. (The national team too) I’m thinking about it, but I hope our team goes well first.
