Jeonnam Dragons coach Jeonnam Dragons, who played in the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Champions League (ACL) for the first time in the K League 2 team, was disappointed in the result.
At a press conference after the final match of Group G of the 2022 ACL group stage held at Pathum Thani Stadium in Thailand on the 30th, former coach Jeon said at a press conference, “It’s a pity that we couldn’t get the result in a big and glorious place.
The failure to deliver results is entirely my (responsibility) as the manager,” he said.
Jeonnam were eliminated from the group stage with Thailand’s Pathum United in a 0-0 draw on that day, finishing 3rd in Group G (8 points).
Jeonnam, who won the Korea Football Association (FA) Cup last year and entered the ACL stage for the first time as a K-League 2 team, won two victories over United City of the Philippines, and won one point each against Melbourne City (Australia) and Patum, but in the group stage. It didn’t make it through the league.
Jeon said, “There is no decision win in soccer.
“The team that produces results wins soccer,” he said.
However, former coach Jeon emphasized, “I did my best until the last game.” “If I can step on the ACL stage again, I hope I can go to the round of 16 and 8 without failing then.”
Jeonnam remained in the middle of the K-League 2 at the beginning of the season.
In order to challenge for promotion, it is urgent to return to the league immediately and accumulate points.
“It’s a tight schedule where we have to play postponed matches when we go back, but if we can’t produce results due to accumulated fatigue due to the ACL, we have no choice but to become losers,” said Jeon. “, he pledged.
