Dino, who missed an entire season due to an Achilles tendon rupture last season, has returned from injury and is serving as the main striker this season.
However, his condition is still not perfect. During his 7 league appearances he had no offensive points. He didn’t score a goal or even an assist.
Even in the match against Suwon, it did not show much influence. At the beginning of the first half, Kim Dae-Won and Kim Dae-Won made a 2-1 pass to draw out the opponent’s foul, and in the 8th minute of the second half, they bypassed the defense with exquisite turn action and continued shooting.

It was a disappointing performance, but coach Choi wrapped Dino.
Coach Choi said in an interview before the game, “Dino needs time. I told the players to give it to Dino unconditionally when they catch the ball,” and insisted after the game, “I did my part.”
Coach Choi analyzed, 메이저놀이터 “I think Dino did not do his part enough,” and “It seems that there was a lack of target play using Dino in an aggressive situation. I tried to use resources like Kim Dae-won, but was blocked by the opponent’s dense defense.”
He bowed his head to apologize to the fans.
Coach Choi said, “I really have nothing to say to the home fans, and I’m sorry.”
At the same time, he added, “Rather than blaming the players, it is important to set the mood to escape the losing streak. We will have to make sure that we can bring the desired results from the next game.”
