Chungnam Asan FC has been playing such a fertile soccer that it finds good players every season. After Kim In-gyun and Yoo Kang-hyun (Daejeon Hana Citizen), Park Dae-hoon, who has been recognized as Chungnam Asan’s ace, regretted his early season injury.
Chungnam Asan won 2-0 at home against Cheonan City FC in the 37th round of the Hana OneQ K League 2 2023 at 4 p.m. on April 28 at Yi Sun-sin Stadium. The team moved up to ninth place with 42 points after winning all three matches against Cheonan this season.
The game was highlighted by the performance of Park Dae-hoon, who started the game as the top striker and assisted on the first goal in the 15th minute as well as Kang Min-kyu’s wedge goal six minutes into the second half. He almost made it a multi-goal game on a penalty kick opportunity in the 31st minute, but had to settle for a shot that hit the crossbar.
“It felt good to win the last home game of the season 2-0,” he said in the post-match press conference, “but I’m sorry that (coach Park Dong-hyuk) trusted me and gave me a penalty kick opportunity. My teammates defended hard and we won,” he said, expressing his gratitude and apologies.
Park Dong-hyuk expected Park Dae-hoon to fill the void left by last season’s ace striker Yoo Kang-hyun, who left for Daejeon. However, Park failed to live up to expectations due to injuries and poor form in the first half of the season. In the second half of the season, he found his form and started to taste goals, and has lived up to expectations with six goals so far this season.
“I had some injuries this season, otherwise I would have repaid the faith,” Park said.
He made up for it with his performance at the end of the season. “I originally set a goal of scoring double digits before the season started. I couldn’t play many games. I’d say 6-70 points,” he said. 스포츠토토
Chungnam Asan has a tradition of buying coffee for the player who scores the most goals. Park Dae-hoon had to open his wallet a lot with his recent performance. He said, “I think I scored a goal by buying coffee. I’m going to do it again,” he said happily.
