On the 24th, at the Tancheon Sports Complex in Seongnam, a scene was created that fits perfectly with the saying, “There are no parents who win over their children.”
Seongnam FC, led by coach Lee Ki-hyeong (49), who was nicknamed the “cannon shooter” during his active career, gave up two goals to Lee Ho-jae (23) in the round of 16 of the Korea Football Association (FA) Cup and lost 0-3 to Pohang Steelers. will be.
Coach Lee met with the reporter and said, “Second-generation soccer players must run with the determination to beat their father like Lee Ho-jae (my son).”
In fact, following in the footsteps of a successful father is not an easy task. From the time he entered soccer until his debut, public attention follows him.
It is representative that Cha Doo-ri, who played an active part in the national team (current soccer team technical advisor), made his father, former soccer team coach Cha Bum-geun, “Cha Doo-ri’s father” only on the day he took off his uniform in 2015. It’s not much different when you look at other sports, but the two sons of basketball emperor Michael Jordan quit sports when they were in college, let alone the NBA.
Coincidentally, there were quite a few players who would ponder Lee’s advice in the match. Kim Jun-ho (21, Pohang), son of Pohang coach Kim Ki-dong, and Shin Jae-won (25, Seongnam), son of Indonesian national soccer team coach Shin Tae-yong, also started as starting pitchers.
Director Kim Ki-dong said, “In fact, I often talk with this coach on a regular basis.” “Actually, I didn’t want my son to play soccer. If the three players who played today do well in the future, it will be a hope for other (soccer) children.”
Director Lee left a meaningful message to his fathers, including director Kim, “Be determined.” Coach Kim is still on the team with his son, but he doesn’t know when he will meet again as an enemy.토토사이트
Nevertheless, Director Lee expressed his desire to meet with his son again. This is because if Seongnam, which is staying in the K-League 2 (Division 2) this year, achieves its dream of promotion, the match between father and son will become a daily routine in the K-League 1 (Division 1) from next year. It is a picture of father and son laughing together.
Director Lee said, “The son will continue to grow, but his father, his leader, will not stop like this.”
