[B11 Scene] Bae Joon-ho’s observations on ‘that team’ about to leave for England… “It’s not the same… They’re not going down two leagues”
Daejeon Hana Citizen’s Bae Jun-ho is close to Europe. 토토사이트 After the game, he shared his impressions of watching ‘the team’ that is rumoured to be transferring.
The Hana One Q K League 2023 Round 28 Jeonbuk Hyundai-Daejeon Hana Citizen match kicked off at 7:30 p.m. on the 25th at Jeonju World Cup Stadium in Jeonju, Jeollabuk-do. The match resulted in a 1-1 draw. Daejeon took the lead in the 34th minute through Thiago, but Jeonbuk equalised in the 38th minute through Song Min-gyu. After that, the two teams were unable to find a goal and the match ended in a draw.
Prior to the game, Daejeon head coach Lee Min-sung expressed his thoughts on the offer for Bae Jun-ho. “I heard it as a positive situation,” he said, and wished Bae success. Speaking to the media after the match, Bae Jun-ho said, “The European negotiations are going positively. I think the final decision will be made around next week,” he said.
One of the teams that Bae is said to be heading to is English club Stoke City. Currently in the Championship (second division), Stoke City was nicknamed a “man’s club” for its bold football during its time in the English Premier League. They play like a traditional English club with a heavy reliance on physicality, which might not be a good fit for ‘technician’ Bae Joon-ho. But Stoke City are a different team now.
“I even looked up YouTube (about the team). My agent watched a game with me. It’s a lot different than it used to be. I think it’s a good club if I go and do really well.” “I heard they wanted me strongly. I think (the negotiations) went well because they wanted me so badly. Just like Cho Kyu-sung did, I want to go out and prove myself when I get the chance,” he said of the team he had already scouted.
“Even if we go to Europe, it’s important to go with a lot of playing time. The second division is not an inferior league by any means. It won’t be easy, but I will adapt as soon as possible and get a lot of playing time. I want to show a lot of good things,” said Bae, who is determined to put in a great performance for England.
The 20-year-old made his name at the FIFA U-20 World Cup Argentina 2023. He made a name for himself as Kim Eun-jung-ho’s technician and attracted attention with his spectacular performances during the tournament. Now, he’s looking to seize the opportunity and head out to sea. After starting in Daejeon, it will be interesting to see what Bae Joon-ho can do on the big stage.
After the Jeonbuk game, Bae Jun-ho said goodbye to Daejeon, a city that helped him grow as a player.
