Kim Jin-gyu (26, Kim Cheon Sangmu) recorded help based on his tenacious digging until the end, and posted his 4th attack point in 2 consecutive games and this season. Even though it has only been three months since joining, he quickly continued to adapt and became the ‘core of the midfield’.
Kim Jin-gyu contributed to Gimcheon’s 4-1 victory by playing in the midfield, including starting and earning help in the Hana 1 Q K League 2 2023 Round 7 home game against Bucheon FC held at Gimcheon Sports Complex at 4:00 pm on the 15th.
Kim Jin-gyu, who showed off his presence on the ground that day,스포츠토토 created an impressive scene within 2 minutes of kick-off. As soon as he received a pass from the midfield, he quickly turned around, and after that, he did not get pushed back in the contest and kept the ball until the end, then stabbed a forward pass to help Kim Ji-hyeon (26) score the first goal. It was the help created by the ‘perseverance’ of not giving up.
Since then, Kim Jin-gyu has been active in all directions in the midfield. He created threatening opportunities from time to time with sharp passes and sophisticated kicks. In particular, he took a variety of movements, such as falling to the side rather than staying in the center, and even carried the ball directly while lightly peeling off one or two defenses.
His defensive participation was also active. Kim Jin-kyu helped Kim Ji-hyeon, Kang Hyeon-muk (22), and Kim Jun-bum (25) from the front and faithfully carried out the pressure. He moved below the half line and intercepted the ball to gain the upper hand in the midfield as much as possible. On this day, he showed an activity that was close to 10 out of 10.
Kim Jin-gyu enlisted for military service in January and has been playing for Gimcheon since this year. He appeared as a substitute from the opening game and accumulated help, and then scored one goal each against Busan I-Park in the 4th round and against Cheonan City FC in the 6th round. And on this day, he added help and raised his fourth attack point of the season. While he is making a big success every time he appears, he has now risen to the core of Kim Cheon.
Coach Seong Han-soo (47) also said, “I have to take on the role of playmaker in the future. I think he is a player in an important position because he is in the role of leading the team. I hope that he will continue to develop without injury.”
On the other hand, Gimcheon beat Bucheon 4-1 with scores from Lee Yoo-hyeon (26), Kim Dong-hyeon (25), and Kwon Chang-hoon (28), along with Kim Ji-hyeon’s first goal. While winning 2 games in a row, he jumped up to 2nd place on the leaderboard (4 wins, 2 losses, 12 points). On the 19th, we will challenge the Jeonnam Dragons for a 3-game winning streak.
