It’s a battle of best friends and junior managers. In professional soccer’s K League 1, Jeju United manager Nam Ki-il and Gangwon FC manager Yoon Jung-hwan will face off in a fierce rivalry.
Jeju and Gangwon will meet in the 25th round of the Hana OneQ K League 2023 at 7:30 p.m. on June 6 at Jeju World Cup Stadium. Jeju is currently winless in nine matches and is in urgent need of a turnaround. Gangwon will be looking for a win as they have not won since April against Jeonbuk Hyundai and have fallen to the bottom of the table.
Jeju head coach Nam Ki-il and Gangwon head coach Yoon Jung-hwan are high school teammates. In their professional lives, they played together at Bucheon SK and know each other well. In a clutch situation, the best of friends would go all out.
Jeju came out in a 4-4-2 formation. Kim Dong-joon wears the gloves, while Lee Ju-yong, Lim Chae-min, Yeon Je-woon, and Lim Chang-woo form the back four. Jeon Sung-jin, Kim Gun-woong, Kim Bong-soo, and Kim Joo-gong are in the middle, while Kwon Sun-ho and Hayes are up front.
Gangwon goes with a 4-2-3-1. Lee Kwang-yeon will be in goal, with Ryu Kwang-hyun, Kim Young-bin, Kang Too-ji, and Kang Ji-hoon in the back four, and Wellington, Min-sin-woo, Hae-young, Kim Dae-won, and Lee Seung-won in the midfield. Yago is up top.메이저놀이터
