Jeonbuk Hyundai veteran Choi Chul-soon made a splash by staying in Jeonju and taking care of the fans cheering for the team to win the FA Cup.
Choi Chul-soon held a pre-match press conference for the 2023 Hana OneQ FA Cup Final at 5 p.m. on March 3 at the POSCO headquarters in Pohang, North Gyeongsang Province. Jeonbuk will take on the Pohang Steelers in the final at 2 p.m. on April 4 at the Pohang Steelyard.
Choi Chul-soon said, “I’m always happy when I lift the trophy. We will give our best performance so that we can take home the trophy this time as well,” Choi said ahead of the final. When asked about Jeonbuk’s FA Cup final loss to Pohang 10 years ago, he said, “I wasn’t at the stadium then, so I don’t know.”
“The FA Cup is a single game and there is no next time,” Choi said. So we have to show everything. All the players have to play a winning game,” he said, adding, “Jeonbuk fans told me that they supported us at the World Cup Stadium in Jeonju, so I will do my best to win with that strength.”
According to Jeonbuk officials, some Jeonbuk fans were unable to join the team on the trip because the away tickets allocated by Pohang were sold out. That’s why Choi Chul-soon stayed behind in Jeonju to take care of the fans. 토토사이트
Meanwhile, when asked to show a strong competitive spirit, Choi Chul-soon drew attention to Kim Seung-dae, who also attended the press conference. “All of our fullbacks are here for tomorrow’s game,” Choi said, then added, “The coach will decide who goes out, but if I go out, I’ll aim to not let Kim Seung-dae score a goal. If the coach puts me on the field and puts me man-to-man, it will be a funny picture,” he said, making everyone laugh.
