do you feel about the new season? 

Cho Kyu-sung: 22 was a very meaningful and happy year. What resolutions will you make in 23? I think this year will be better than last year. I will look good.

Baek Seung-ho: Last year, we couldn’t win the league unfortunately. A lot of good players came, but I want to present 3 crowns to the fans.

– The rumor of overseas transfer continues to come out. 

Cho Kyu-sung: First of all, I will always do my best in the given position. It hasn’t been decided yet. I will do my best in the given position.

– There are specific transfer rumors from Europe. How did you convey your heart? 

Cho Kyu-seong: There were many articles, so I read a lot. I haven’t heard anything specific. I’m still worried about specific plans, whether it’s better to go in January or transfer in the summer. I’m communicating with director Park Ji-sung and agents.

-What advice did director Park Ji-sung give?

Cho Kyu-seong: Director Park Ji-sung told me that it was only natural for players to be respected. Apparently, many players who went out during the winter had a hard time. He said he would do better in the summer if he went out better prepared.

-What is your current physical condition?

Cho Kyu-seong: After the World Cup, I was very busy with broadcasting and media schedules. There are many national team players in Jeonbuk. I am still checking my physical condition. It’s a condition that needs to be exercised.

-The head coach of Mainz openly said he wanted Cho Kyu-sung. Have you been contacted personally?

Cho Kyu-seong: We keep in touch through an agent.

-It is unknown how long the effect of the World Cup will last, and the ransom is highly likely to fluctuate.

Cho Kyu-seong: All players will want to go out the same when such a good opportunity comes. If I don’t go in the winter, the teams may not want me now in the summer, and the ransom may drop. I’m thinking about how best to do it.

– I think you have a great desire to go out on the European stage again. 

Baek Seung-ho: I think everyone would want to experience and compete abroad. He scored goals and participated in matches at the World Cup. There is nothing specific, but I think it is important to focus on Jeonbuk right now. If an offer comes up later, I’ll think about it.

-What kind of advice do players give?

Cho Kyu-sung: I think everyone thinks differently. Hong Jeong-ho, Lee Dong-jun, and Kim Jin-soo all tried to win. Some players say it’s better to leave now, and some players think it’s better to prepare well and play the season in the summer. In the end, I guess I’ll have to make a choice.

– What are the criteria for selection?

Cho Kyu-seong: We are considering various aspects. If you go in the winter, all the players will be preparing. I’m resting and now I’m lifting my body up. You have to hit 100% right away, but you have to see how competitive you are. As a player, you have to run the game. I wonder how competitive it will be. I think it’s cool. I wonder how long they can wait. 

-I had a lot of experiences after the World Cup. What was the most fun?

Cho Gyu-seong: The photo shoot was the most fun. I haven’t played much other than football. It is an experience that can only be done now. It was fun doing that part and I met a lot of good people. I thought I should play soccer hard.

-What does the goal against Brazil mean?

Baek Seung-ho: It was such an honor just to go to the World Cup. In a situation where I missed two games, I tried to set another goal. All the players who couldn’t run the game were well prepared. The chance came and I was thankful and meaningful because I was lucky to score a goal. Thanks to that, I gained a lot of confidence.

-What did you say to Jo Kyu-sung?

Baek Seung-ho: I have nothing to advise. He briefly shared his personal thoughts. Regardless of winter or summer, players were told to go whenever they wanted. Gyuseong told me to do what is comfortable and fits well. I don’t necessarily like summer or winter. He thinks that if he has a good manager, he should go when he wants.

– I don’t think it’s realistic to see the transfer fee go up.

Cho Kyu-seong: The transfer fee is also important to me. The transfer fee measures how much the club or team wants me. The higher I go, the more I think I have to work harder.

-Do you have a favorite European league?

Cho Kyu-sung: I’ve been thinking about it for a long time. As a player, I think you set your final goal and go. Every player wants to go to the Premier League. He thinks it is right to go to the growing stage.

– What did you grow a lot from last season?

Baek Seung-ho: I played more games than when I was in Europe. Thanks to that, he gained a lot of experience while going to the national team. My sense of game and stamina have improved a lot. I received a lot of help because I have the same position as the director. has grown in many ways.

-What kind of advice did Lee Jae-seong give you?

Cho Kyu-seong: He didn’t specifically say ‘I can run’. Jaesung also communicates with hyung a lot. Jaehyung also spoke in a vague manner. He said he had to compete wherever he went. Since he is close to Mainz, he told me how much the club wants him. I am grateful and fortunate to have Jaesung hyung.

-Have you talked to director Kim Sang-shik? 

Cho Kyu-seong: Director Park Ji-sung seems to have similar thoughts. He said that if I wanted that stage, he would respect that choice. I am also grateful to the director. It won’t be easy to think like that.

– How long do you think you will have to make a decision?

Kyu-Sung Cho: Decisions must be made as soon as possible. You have to prepare for the season here and adapt to it when you go. If you stay here, you should prepare well for winter training. The sooner the better. 스포츠토토

-Leave the field training in Spain. Baek Seung-ho seems to have a different feeling. 

Baek Seung-ho: It feels like going home. Also ask a lot Barcelona’s first-team physical coach has loved him since his youth days and is a close friend. He said that when the time comes, let’s have a bite to eat. I have a good relationship with the players and coaching staff I lived with, and I am in touch.

-I wanted to talk about my European experience again.

Baek Seung-ho: I think players who can’t solve the military problem are aiming for it. It’s natural to want to run. It depends on how you prepare for the season. It is right to prepare well for the season first.

– Ahn Deok-soo’s trainer controversy. He has an opinion on whether he fits the Football Association position. He says personal trainers are also a trend, but that’s my opinion.

Cho Kyu-seong: I didn’t see the entrance statement. Personal trainers are good. If you are a player, you have your side and your body is your life. I think it’s better to have at least one person who knows your body well if you need it rather than saying it’s absolutely necessary. When I go abroad, I often do that to strengthen my body. Those who know their bodies best think they need it.

– You are in the process of appointing the national team coach. What the players want.

Baek Seung-ho: In this World Cup, you can show good performances and preparations. there was. . It’s because we prepared together. It would be nice if the next coach also prepares with philosophy.

Cho Kyu-sung: We all have the same idea. Many people doubted Bento’s philosophy, but he showed it with good performance. I may or may not be selected for the national team again. I think it would be nice if it was a director who has a philosophy and has a firm style of his own. It is an honor to work with such a coach. It’s so much fun to get to know your style. I think playing together will be an opportunity to learn more about soccer.

– What are your strengths that can work in the big leagues?

Cho Kyu-sung: There are so many things I want to improve on. What I can do well is the aerial competition and the ability to own the ball that I showed at the World Cup. I am thinking and considering the coach and team that fit this.

-You said treble was your goal. 

Baek Seung-ho: I’m looking forward to the players who came this year. I think that if you prepare well as you are used to, you will be able to bring about good results.

– I heard harsh words as the manager of a rival team. What are your resolutions for the head-to-head match against Ulsan?

Baek Seung-ho: I only read the article, but I didn’t say anything about it. It seems that everyone has their own position. Director, I think there is Amano’s position. Since Amano is our player, I think it is right to help him adapt well.
