“The difference in level between K League 1 and K3 was clearly visible”.
Paju City Football Club lost 2-5 in extra time to Jeonbuk Hyundai in the round of 16 of the 2023 Hana OneQ FA Cup at Jeonju World Cup Stadium on Thursday.
The loss ended Paju’s FA Cup campaign.
Coach Lee Eun-no said after the game, “We wanted to finish the game in 90 minutes. We prepared tactics and strategies, but our physical strength dropped, and we had to make early substitutions due to more injuries. It’s a shame we couldn’t show everything we had prepared. The players did their best. I hope we can recover quickly and show good form again in the K3 League. We have a tough schedule in the league, but I’m grateful for the players’ hard work.”메이저사이트
Lee continued, “We have a lot of experienced players in our defense. Our players came out ready to play, but we weren’t ready for Gustavo. That’s a weapon that can close the gap on an opponent, but we couldn’t stop him.”
“We couldn’t replace our senior players,” said Lee Eun-no, who noted the physical strain. We had injuries and we had no choice. The substitutes didn’t finish the game perfectly. The players did their best, but the difference in level between K League 1 and K3 was clearly visible,” he said.
Meanwhile, coach Lee Eun-no said, “I would like to say hello to the mayor of Paju and the fans who came to the stadium. The city of Paju is actively supporting us. I hope we can be an open space for Paju to be known. I believe that if we are known more, Paju City will support us more actively. To the fans who always support us, I would like to say that the players did their best.”
