Manager Kim Ho-chul’s concern “If the players don’t get sick… ”
IBK Industrial Bank lost to KGC Ginseng Corporation in the 4th round of the Dodram 2022-2023 V-League Women’s Division held at Chungmu Gymnasium in Daejeon on the 22nd with a set score of 0-3 (23-25, 16-25, 23-25).
Unlike IBK Industrial Bank of Korea, Santana (registered name Santana) and Pyo Seung-joo scored double digits with 17 and 12 points, respectively, but lost. The receiving error that came out at the critical moment was great.
Coach Ho-cheol Kim, whom we met after the game, said, “The first set was the place to win. We handed over the score to our offense, and the sub-receive offense came out. I think you need a sense of responsibility to take responsibility in important moments. The match was lost, but the players did their best and fought well and worked hard. Too many sick players. I hope you don’t get sick soon.”
As coach Kim said, injured players continue to appear one after another. In the second half of the third set, Suji Kim felt pain in her knee while landing after blocking. Regarding this, “(Kim) Suzy’s knee is always bad. Even as he practices, he is always careful, rehabilitated, and reinforced. He felt pain as he moved,” he said of the situation at the time.
Santana also felt pain in his fingers during the blocking process. Coach Kim said, “The injuries keep appearing one after another. It’s not that the players’ concentration has declined, and it’s not that the players aren’t doing it, but their grades are not good. I think it’s our team’s limit. Everyone has to do well to break through this threshold. If it goes well on the left side like this day, there shouldn’t be an off-beat that doesn’t work on the right side,” he said with strength.
On the 1st, Shin Yeon-kyung, who missed due to knee-ankle ligament damage, returned after 5 games. Regarding Shin Yeon-kyung, “I came back to the old days. Receive and defense were all good. And he led the team well. He is an indispensable and important player for our team. Just as Heungkuk Life Insurance cannot do without Kim Yeon-kyung, we will have a harder time (than Heungkuk Life Insurance) if Shin Yeon-kyung is missing. As such, he is an important player for our team. Fortunately, I was not hurt that day and finished the game, so I am very happy. I think I will be more confident in the next game.” 스포츠토토
The next opponent of IBK Industrial Bank is Pepper Savings Bank. The ranking is low, but if you look at the recent performance, it is an opponent that cannot be ignored. Regarding this, “Pepper Savings Bank is on the rise. I’m losing, but my performance is good. It would be fine if we did what we had, but it still bothers me. It is true that there are a lot of sick players, so there is a sense of pressure.”
On the other hand, KGC Ginseng Corporation, which took valuable 3 points and a shutout victory, helped Elisabeth Ine Barga (registered name Elisabeth) with 22 points including 1 blocking and 2 subs, and Park Eun-jin with 9 points including 6 blockings. .
Director Ko Hee-jin said, “Overall, I was in good shape, and (Jeong) Ho-young encouraged me that I could do that even though I was a bit sluggish. Lee So-young and Yum Hye-seon played volleyball to catch the center. If the same performance comes out that day, I think I will be able to play better in the future.”
Koh Hee-jin’s position during his active career was a middle blocker. Will this affect the team’s middle blocker? Coach Ko said, “He is a player who can do that much originally. I talk about experiences and details. Not only for our team, but also for Korean women’s volleyball. I hope to be reborn as a better player in the future.”
KGC Ginseng Corporation, which earned 3 points on the day, has the same points as Korea Expressway Corporation in 4th place. Although it is in 5th place with 10 wins and is behind in the number of wins, a foothold has been prepared for a rebound. Regarding this part, “I am trying to run for the third place. Rather than managing points, I am doing my best in each game,” he said calmly.
While the good atmosphere continues with two consecutive wins, the next opponent is Heungkuk Life Insurance. KGC Ginseng Corporation shows a particularly weak appearance to Heungkuk Life Insurance. They lost all three previous matches. It is true that there is a burden on KGC Ginseng Corporation, which has an urgent way to go.
The head coach said, “There were several reasons (for the lost match). So, I try to prepare differently. I haven’t talked to the players yet, but I’m preparing myself. In the meantime, we have lost against Heungkuk Life Insurance, so we need to quickly change the atmosphere. I will prepare well and play a good game,” he concluded the interview.
