Coach Park Tae-ha of the K League 1 Pohang Steelers expressed his excitement and anticipation for the ‘return to professional soccer’, which is just one day away.

At a press conference held at Jeonju World Cup Stadium in Jeonbuk Province on the 13th, a day before the first leg of the round of 16 of the 2023-2024 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Champions League (ACL), Coach Park said, “I am half excited and half excited about tomorrow’s game. In fact, I am a little more excited.” “It’s big,” he said.

Pohang will play the first leg of the round of 16 against Jeonbuk on the 14th at 7 p.m. and play the second leg at home on the 20th.

Coach Park, who left professional soccer after the 2018 season as head coach of China’s second division Yanbian, took the helm of Pohang as the successor to coach Kim Ki-dong, who left for FC Seoul in December last year.

Pohang is Coach Park’s ‘home team.’

As a player, he played for Pohang for 9 seasons, excluding military service, and scored 46 goals and 37 assists in 261 K-League games.He also served as captain from 1998 to 2000.

Coach Park, who started his coaching career at Pohang in 2005, helped Pohang win the K-League title as a coach in 2007.

Coach Park said, “During training, the players showed passion for what they wanted to do,” and added, “As reported in the media, many players left, but an atmosphere has been created among the existing players that they can do it well.”

However, Coach Park admitted that there was not enough time to bring the football he envisioned to Pohang.

Coach Park said, “Actually, the soccer I think of is dynamic and aggressive soccer. We are adding color little by little, but there is not enough time. As time goes by, the players will understand. I think it will take about six months.”

He added, “I don’t think we’ll be able to play a good game right away,” and added, “We plan to make up for the shortcomings with our team’s own spirit.”

Under coach Kim Ki-dong, Pohang showed an overwhelming advantage over Jeonbuk last year with 4 wins and 1 draw.
