K-League 1 Daejeon ‘King of Mask Singer’ Joo Se-jong “I can’t go because I’m afraid”

Ju Se-jong, the “mask man” of Daejeon Hana Citizen in K League 1 professional football, is waiting for the day when he will take off his face shield.

After winning 2-1 in the home match of Hana One Q K League 1 2023 Ulsan Hyundai held at Daejeon World Cup Stadium on the 16th, Joo Se-jong met with reporters and said, “It doesn’t hurt, but there is a part that hurts. “When you wear a mask, your vision is obstructed or shaken,” he said.

Joo Se-jong said, “I couldn’t see because of the mask,” and “That part was tricky.

Veteran midfielder Joo Se-jong transferred from Gamba Osaka (Japan) on loan to Daejeon, a K-League 2 club, last summer and contributed greatly to his promotion to the first team. taking over

However, in the away game against Incheon United in the second half of the season, Kim Dong-min hit his head hard in the 47th minute and was diagnosed with an orbital fracture and could not play.

Today’s game against Ulsan is a comeback match played in about a month.

Joo Se-jong said, “I thought it would be better if I acted 100% physically.

Before the match, coach Lee Min-seong pointed out that Joo Se-jong’s performance was the key to deciding the match.

Ahead of this game, they face defending champions Ulsan, who are on a six-game winning streak, and are worried that players will show reduced movement on the pitch.

Director Lee saw that the player who could solve this problem was Ju Se-jong, a veteran with a lot of experience on the big stage.

At the press conference after the match, Lee Seung-yeop said, “I am very happy that Ju Se-jong is back. The players trust and rely on Ju Se-jong.” I am thankful from the director’s point of view because Joo Se-jong said he would start from the first round.”

Then, he praised, “Joo Se-jong came in and balanced the team. The ball is still alive.”

Ju Se-jong, who heard this, laughed when he said, “I prefer to rely on the cast.”

He said, “Because there are a lot of young players, we need experienced players who can control them in an instant.

He added, “When the ball comes, the young players try to hit and run fast in attacking situations. Every time that happens, they ask me to adapt. I think I am responsible for this part of the team.”

Joo Se-jong left a deep impression on football fans by assisting Son Heung-min (Tottenham) to score a goal with a beautiful long ball just before the end against Germany in the Group Stage 3 match of the 2018 Russia World Cup.

Incidentally, Son Heung-min also complained of difficulties when playing with a face shield due to an orbital fracture ahead of last year’s Qatar World Cup.

When Son Heung-min was mentioned, Ju Se-jong congratulated him on achieving the 100th goal in the English Premier League (EPL) of professional football above all else.

Joo Se-jong said, “This is really something to celebrate. A Korean player has scored his 100th goal in a world-class league. I hope he will play a central role in the national team until he retires.”
