Park Seung-ho, who Stood Up Tall Despite the Bad News

I persevered tenaciously when everyone looked at me with the gaze of ‘impossibility.

I found motivation in the midst of the ordeal and stood up strong.

Park Seung-ho of Incheon United, who is a rookie but has a strong mentality

looked back and said, “Injuries made me stand taller.”

Park Seung-ho is a ‘rookie’ who joined Incheon this season. Even though he was a freshman at Dankook University, he quickly earned a starting spot with his fierce scoring ability 카지노사이트

 In 2021, as a member of Yongin City Soccer Center Deokyoung U-18, he won the Blue Dragon Cup top scorer and played a leading role in bringing the team the championship.

It was a ‘cotyledon that was ripe for the taking’.

It wasn’t smooth sailing after turning professional. First of all, he had few opportunities to play.

It is perhaps natural for a rookie player to not be able to compete in a professional game

but he faced another negative factor. He suffered an injury in the group stage against Honduras at the FIFA U-20 World Cup held in Argentina last May.

He had to return home during the competition due to a fractured right ankle and ligament damage, and had to focus on surgery and rehabilitation.

It was even more painful because it was a match against Honduras where the equalizer was scored.

However, this period came to Park Seung-ho as ‘motivation’ rather than ‘frustration’.

Park Seung-ho said, “Being injured helped his soccer career.

He gave me motivation that I could do it. In fact, he was told many times when he was injured that he couldn’t make it.

There was talk that he was finished, but instead he lifted me up,” he said.

The teammates who made it to the semifinals on the national team began to settle down one by one. Bae Jun-ho moved to Stoke City in the English Professional Football Championship (second division), and Kim Ji-soo moved to Brentford.

Park Seung-ho said, “Rather than approaching it as a stimulus, I had a stronger thought that ‘now I just have to do well.

He looked back and said, “I didn’t care and tried to prepare.”

Park Seung-ho, who recovered after three months, gradually got a chance to play.

Starting with his appearance as a starter against Suwon Samsung last September

he gradually stepped on the pitch, and even scored his ‘debut goal’ in the 37th round match against Ulsan Hyundai on the 24th. In the 5th minute of the second half when the game was tied 0-0

Park Seung-ho scored a goal with a non-stop volley on Choi Woo-jin’s cross from the left side of the penalty box.

Park Seung-ho said, “I tried not to be intimidated by the thought that I was the best.

He also had a play where he hit a ground ball cross with Woojin during training, which he talked about before going into the second half.

I think that part led to the goal,” he said with a smile.

Incheon coach Cho Seong-hwan also gave a thumbs up to Park Seung-ho’s ‘mental’.

Coach Cho said, “If he works hard, he has the mentality and ability to even make it to the A national team in the future.

I think he can overcome the painful ordeal and rise to a good position,” he said.

Seungho Park also responded. He said, “First of all, it is not easy to give him a chance to play, but he invited me even though he was a rookie.

I remember him more because he was my first professional manager. He also seems to be improving his skills and mentality as he learns the director’s style.

He is trusted and relied on a lot,” he said.

In addition to Park Seung-ho, Incheon’s ‘young resources’ are being given opportunities to play at the end of the season.

A representative game is the Gwangju FC match on the 28th of last month.

At the time, most of Incheon’s main players, including Myung-joo Lee, Shin Jin-ho, Mugosa, Gerso, and Hernández, were excluded due to injury or the Football Association (FA) Cup rotation.

With 7 U-22 resources, they produced a ‘great upset’ by defeating ‘full power’ Gwangju 2-0.

It’s the same today. Ulsan also used a rotation, but young guns such as Park Seung-ho, Choi Woo-jin, and Hong Si-hoo played as starters and played well, leading to a 3-1 victory.

Park Seung-ho said, “As young players are given opportunities, they make plays that can inject energy into the team. He helps and follows along well, so he can perform well in big games.

Our team has prepared well with the idea that we are all Team A, rather than being divided into A (starting) and B (non-starting) teams,” he said.

He said, “Originally, the goal was 3 to 4 attack points in 15 games.

I didn’t get the opportunity due to injury, but I will work hard to accumulate attack points until the end,”
