There was persuasion from Yeom Ki-hun in Kim Bo-kyung’s trip to Suwon Samsung.
On the 27th, Suwon held a press conference for the 2023 K-League Winter Field Training Media Camp at Shilla Stay Jeju, located in Jeju City. Head coach Lee Byeong-geun and Suwon players attended and revealed their preparations for the season and their aspirations.
Kim Bo-kyung also participated. Kim Bo-kyung has been evaluated as a leader of Korean football since his childhood. He won a bronze medal at the 2012 London Olympics and only went to two FIFA World Cups. He also had an English Premier League (EPL) life. He played for Cardiff City and also joined Wigan. Afterwards, Kim Bo-kyung, who played in Japan’s J-League, came to Ulsan Hyundai and came to the K-League and left a splendid footprint, such as winning the MVP award. 메이저사이트
Kim Bo-kyung, who played for Jeonbuk Hyundai, will wear the Suwon uniform from this season. Suwon fans have high expectations for Kim Bo-kyung. Even though he is old, his skills are still at the highest level in the K-League, and he has a lot of experience, so he can pass on the empirical aspect to the entire team. He is a player who leads the development of the attack and steadily raises points. His signature nickname, ‘KBK’, is already being chanted by Suwon fans.
Kim Bo-gyeong, who was interviewed, revealed the reason why he chose Suwon. Kim Bo-kyung said that coach Lee Byeong-geun contacted him first and that when he was playing in Europe in the past, he came to Korea to train and was in Suwon, and that memory led him to Suwon. He also said that there was persuasion from Yeom Ki-hun. Yeom Ki-hoon is a living legend in Suwon and has been playing only for Big Bird for 13 years since 2010. He announced his retirement at the end of last season and then announced his one-year extension. He became a playing coach.
Yeom Ki-hoon, who became a playing coach, called when news spread that Kim Bo-kyung could come to Suwon. Yeom Ki-hoon said in an interview conducted in the same place, “I had good memories of being together when we were young. When (Kim) Bo-kyung said that he might transfer, he called first and said, ‘Let’s do it together.’ I think everyone will be fine if they are with me,” he said, conveying the situation.
“I thought that the weight of the team would change when Bokyung came. Afterwards, Bokyung came to Suwon, and as expected, the team gained a sense of weight. I think that will be of great help to Suwon. It will be different from when he was playing. Bokyung is good too, but the players who are just as good have supported him. There is a difference in Suwon now. It seems that Bokyung is having a hard time. Help Bokyung as much as possible to lead the team well with the younger players. I will,” he said.
In addition, Yeom Ki-hun expressed his anticipation, saying, “Bo-kyung has also taken into account the difficulties. He has a lot of experience and will, and he is a veteran, so he will overcome the difficulties well.”
On the other hand, Kim Bo-gyeong said, “I have a role to play when I communicate well with young and mid-level players and share stories with senior players. Still, let’s do well together and help the team become better.”
