‘Before the Cliff’ Hyundai Capital Director Choi Tae-woong “Let’s not bow our heads”
“Let’s have fun and do our best.”
Hyundai Capital, driven to the edge of a cliff, seeks a turnaround. Choi Tae-woong, head coach of Hyundai Capital, encouraged the players by saying, “Don’t lower your head.”
On the 3rd, Hyundai Capital will play the 3rd match of the Dodram 2022-2023 V-League men’s championship match (5 matches, 3 wins) against Korean Air at Yu Gwan-sun Gymnasium in Cheonan.
It is a battle that cannot be retreated.
Hyundai Capital lost both the 1st and 2nd rounds of the championship match played on the road. If you can’t even catch the game on this day, Hyundai Capital’s challenge for the throne ends here.
On this day, Hyundai Capital will have Moon Seong-min as a middle blocker and Kim Seon-ho as an outside heater considering Oreol’s stamina. The starting setter is Kim Myung-gwan.
The command tower hoped that the players would put down the burden and give their strength as they have done so far.
Regarding the message he gave to the players ahead of the game, coach Choi Tae-woong said, “I’ve done well so far, but I hope you don’t bow your head because you lost twice in the championship game.”
Hyundai Capital is continuing its difficult challenge.
At the end of the season, while the main gun Jeon Kwang-in left due to an ankle injury, Hyundai Capital, who finished second in the regular league, defeated KEPCO with 2 wins and 1 loss in the playoffs (PO) and stepped on the stage of the championship.
Coach Choi said, “The players came together in a difficult time without a Jeon Kwang-min. They told me that they came through the playoffs and reached the championship because the players showed their individual abilities and became one.
Korean Air has the upper hand, but the game must be over before we know. Korea Expressway Corporation, which lost the first and second games in the women’s championship game, took Heungkuk Life Insurance in the third game and started a counterattack.
Coach Choi, who laughed at the story of the women’s championship match, emphasized, “I don’t want to put pressure on the players, but my wish is to win. No matter what the result, I hope the players will not bow their heads.” 스포츠토토
However, it is difficult for Jeon Kwang-in, who is showing a willingness to return, to stand on the court today.
Director Choi explained, “Kwang-in asked me to play defense last night. I thought a lot and took a test myself, but it doesn’t seem like it yet.”
With only one more win, Korean Air, which will achieve its first treble (cup championship, regular league championship, championship championship) along with a combined championship for three consecutive years, plans to play the third game calmly.
“I think the third game will be a really fun game,” Korean Air coach Tommy Tilikhainen said, “Today is a new game. I don’t know what will happen until the final whistle. I’ll do my best until the end.” .
He continued, “Hyundai Capital will definitely run at 100% and do its best. The thought of ‘I’ll finish today’ doesn’t help us.”
