With a new start in the 2023 season, K League 2 (Part 2) Managing Director Kim Cheon is having a hot winter to promote to K League 1 (Part 1) again.
This year, when the team was relegated to K-League 2, the command tower in Gimcheon has also changed. Former manager Kim Tae-wan (52), who had spent 20 years as a leader in Sangmu, stepped down and Seong Han-soo (47) took over the leadership. It’s a big change as much as when I moved my hometown from Sangju to Gimcheon in 2021. Kim Cheon, under the Sung coaching system, has organized the first winter training camp in Changwon, Gyeongsangnam-do from the 15th to re-promote to the 1st Division and is sweating heavily. 슬롯사이트
It is not complete yet. The 18 new recruits, including Jo Young-wook, Kang Hyeon-moo, Won Doo-jae, Yoon Jong-gyu, and Lee Sang-min, entered the Army Training Center on the 16th, received basic military training, and joined the team on the 22nd. Until then, we have to train with the existing 14 players. Even after participating in the 2022 Qatar World Cup, Kwon Chang-hoon, who received a reward vacation, joined on the 17th.
Not all the players gathered, but the atmosphere at the training ground was hot. In the training held at the Changwon Soccer Center on the morning of the 18th, the players underwent intense physical training. Coach Seong said, “The players will probably smell sweet,” and said, “During the first training session in Changwon until the end of January, we are concentrating on maximizing our stamina.” From now on, once every two days, ‘hell’s physical training’ is scheduled. Kwon Chang-hoon, whose physical condition was not good, digested his personal training that day.
Coach Seong also emphasized the attitude of soldiers to the players. He explained, “Since there are many changes this year, we need to set the mood well.” He explained, “Since new players are about to join, we refrain from going out at the training ground as much as possible unless it is unavoidable.”
But that doesn’t mean there’s only sticks and no carrots. In the morning of this day, he had an intense training session, but in the afternoon, he held his own foot volleyball tournament, where coach Sung’s gold medal was awarded. It was a lively atmosphere with the players and coaching staff working together as a team. Coach Seong closely monitors the mentality of the players through one-on-one interviews after training.
