Sejingya’s answer to ‘the older brother who will do something’ “Frequent communication with the younger players has resulted in…the new goal is now the 70-70 club”

Sejingya (Daegu FC), the ‘big brother who will do something for you’, welcomed his team’s winning streak with a smile.

Daegu FC earned a 2-1 victory over FC Seoul in the 13th round of the Hana Bank K League 1 2024 at Sangam World Cup Stadium in Seoul on Monday.

Daegu took the lead through an own goal in a tightly contested match against Seoul, and added a second goal in the 24th minute from Park Yong-hee, who capitalized on a mistake by the opposing goalkeeper, to add three points and move up to ninth place in the 현금홀덤사이트 league.

When we caught up with Sejingya in the Mix Zone after the game, she was all smiles and congratulated her team on their victory. “It was a bit tough because the weather was hot, but I think we got a good result because we were able to play soccer while having fun,” Sejingya said. “The game against Seoul was difficult, but we were able to incorporate the parts of our training into the game after a lot of preparation, and we were able to get a valuable victory.”

Daegu, who had only one win all season, parted ways with Choi Won-kwon last month and hired Park Chang-hyun, a longtime college soccer coach. After a three-match winless streak under Park, Daegu picked up its second win in four games against Gwangju FC, and then beat Seoul for its third win of the season and first two-game winning streak of the season.

The matchup between Sejingya and Seoul’s Jesse Lingard attracted a lot of attention ahead of the game. Sejingya, the top foreign striker in the K-League, and Lingard, who most recently played in the Premier League, battled it out on the pitch until Lingard had to be substituted in the 18th minute of the second half.

“I was aware of Lingard’s return,” said Sejingya. However, he hasn’t been at his best yet. I hope he can adapt to Korea quickly and help Seoul a lot, so the fans can enjoy watching him play. He has experience playing in the Premier League, so I think he will adapt quickly to the Korean stage.”

On this day, Sejingya was given a new nickname. In a post-match interview, Park Yong-hee, who scored the goal, said, “If you give him the ball, I think he will do something, so he will play more with (Jung) Jae-sang.”

‘I think he’ll do something’ Sejingya responded to Park Yong-hee’s comment, saying, “I do a lot of training on the training ground and talk a lot with young players like (Park) Yong-hee. I think that’s how they gain confidence and can try a lot of things like shooting and dribbling. I think these things come out naturally on the pitch, so if the younger players have more confidence, they will perform better. I think it will help the team a lot.”

Sejingya, who helped the team win the previous match against Gwangju with one goal and two assists, was named to the K League’s 60-60 Club (60 goals and 60 assists or more) with his first assist. The Daegu club’s first-ever record, he has once again established himself as the ‘King of Daegu’ and now has 89 goals and 61 assists in his K League career. He is nine assists away from the ’70-70 Club’.

“Now the new goal is 70-70,” said Sejingya, “I know what I need to do to set a new record. However, I need the help of my teammates to record assists, so I will do my best to maintain my best performance.”
