I wore a ‘uniform’ instead of a ‘suit’ for my pupil… “I wish I could be comforted by the best”

Gwangju FC coach Lee Jung-hyo, who attended the 2023 season K League 1 Opening Media Day, appeared wearing a yellow uniform. It is to comfort the injured disciple.

On the 20th, the 2023 K-League 1 Opening Media Day was held at The-K Hotel in Yangjae-dong, Seoul. The commanders and captains of 12 K-League 1 teams gathered in one place to strengthen their resolve for the new season. 

As it was an official event before the start of the season, the coaches of each team shone in neat suits. Players wore the uniforms of their respective teams. 

However, coach Lee Jeong-hyo shined in the same shirt as the Gwangju players. Wearing the uniform inside out caught the eyes of reporters and fans.  메이저사이트

Coach Lee Jeong-hyo, who wore the back side with ‘Lee Eutteum’ and the number ‘8’ engraved on it, wore the uniform until the end of the event. 

Regarding this, coach Lee Jung-hyo said, “Lee Eutteum prepared quite well during the winter field training, but he suffered a major injury a week ago. I thought showing it like this would be more comforting than any words of comfort, so I put on (turning the uniform upside down) and came out.”

Eutteum Lee recently suffered a collarbone injury while preparing for the 2023 season. He went on the operating table on the 15th and is currently recovering. 

Eutteum Lee, who joined Gwangju in 2015, is a key defender. Last season, he played 30 league games and contributed 2 goals and 9 assists to Gwangju’s K-League 2 victory. Stable defense and sharp crosses are outstanding.

Coach Lee Jeong-hyo is looking forward to success in the K-League 1 despite the unexpected departure of key players. Director Lee said, “(Part 1) my goal is to bring out the unique color of Gwangju. “Last year, director Lee Byeong-geun said it was very difficult, but we also had a lot of trouble coming up to part 1. Remaining is not our goal. I want to let Suwon fans know what our soccer is like.”

The reason I picked Suwon was because it was my opponent for the opening game. Gwangju will play the K League 1 opening game against Suwon Samsung at 4:30 pm on the 25th at Suwon World Cup Stadium. It is the first part comeback after 2 years.
