Sejingya’s return is slower than expected. Daegu FC head coach Choi Won-kwon expects him to be “out for the season.
Daegu rode the momentum of a seven-match unbeaten streak (W4 D3 L) into the second half of the 2023 season to secure a spot in the Final A. The team was predicted to finish in the top six before the season. They’ve defied pre-season predictions that they wouldn’t make it to the top six, but there are concerns.
The departure of ‘Gun’ Sejingya. On September 1, Sejingya suffered an injury on the side of his heel while contending with Kang Tooji-ji in the last minute of the first half against Gangwon FC. He was diagnosed with seven or eight fractures. Since it was two ribs instead of one, I was somewhat expecting a long recovery period.토토사이트
But it’s taking longer than I thought. I was expecting to be back for the final round, but I didn’t even return to team training. Although his ribs have been repaired, he will travel to Brazil next week to undergo tests and treatment for his nagging knee injury, so Daegu will have to finish the season without Sejingya.
“I think we proved our competitiveness. We showed the strength to get back on our feet even without our main players. When Sejingya-Vassellus returns from injury, we can have a sharp offense. Final A teams have good offense. The first thing is to be solid. The second is that if the injured players return, I think we will be able to diversify our offense,” Choi said.
Sejingya hasn’t played a full season this year. He’s been out since the beginning of the season with a hamstring injury. Daegu has learned to live without him, and they’ve taken it one game at a time.
What’s more, Daegu has sold out the most home games this season. On the 4th, Daegu announced that they had sold out four consecutive home games. This is the 10th sellout of the season, and the team is enjoying the support of its home fans.
Daegu is in sixth place (49 points). They are three points behind fifth-place Incheon United (53 points) and four points behind fourth-place Jeonbuk Hyundai (53 points). With a home game against Gwangju FC coming up on April 11, all eyes will be on Pohang Steelers (A) and Incheon United (H) to see if they can bounce back in their final matches.
