Jeju United recorded an unfortunate draw with Suwon FC in the opening game of the 2023 K-League. However, it is encouraging that veteran Koo Ja-cheol played a big role in good health.
Coach Nam Ki-il also praised him after the match. He said, “I think he did well. He created a lot of chances and helped Jeon Seong-jin go well on the left. I was expecting a goal, but I’m satisfied with everything except that.”
Koo Ja-cheol, whom he met in the Mixed Zone, also positively evaluated his physical condition. He said, “First of all, I am doing my best. There are no major problems as there are no injuries and I am continuing to train. Now that the season has started, I have an obligation to continue working hard.”
Koo Ja-cheol’s good condition is a great strength for Jeju. On this day, he can play as a left winger like the game, and can play various positions such as attacking midfielder, central midfielder, and forward striker, so he can give coach Nam Ki-il many options. It is Koo Ja-cheol who is looking forward to this season.
