Incheon received a lot of attention ahead of this season. Ahead of the 20th anniversary of the founding, we aimed for quantitative and qualitative development. The club opened a soccer center (clubhouse) in Yeonsu-gu, Incheon at the end of last year. In the winter transfer market, they recruited quality players one after another. They embraced ‘veteran midfielder’ Shin Jin-ho, ‘proven foreign player’ Jerso, and ‘European’ Mpoku. Active recruiting strengthened the player squad.
I opened the lid. Incheon faltered in the first round robin of ‘Hanawon Q K League 1 2023’. In 13 games since the opening, they only recorded 3 wins, 4 draws and 6 losses (13 points). They are in 10th place out of 12 teams. To make matters worse, something unpleasant happened off the field. Incheon played a home game against Jeonbuk Hyundai on the 14th. After the game, some fans argued. During this process, it is known that someone threw a plastic bottle onto the ground. The club posted an official apology on the 18th. Violent parties decided to ban all matches in Incheon indefinitely.
In a turbulent situation on and off the field, coach Cho requested a conversation with the fans. An official from Incheon said, “The coach wanted a place to communicate with the fans. It was a very rushed meeting, but about 50 fans attended. It continued from talking about the current situation of the team to discussing tactics. , All clubs are aware of the current situation. We are working hard to overcome it.’
Incheon will face Gwangju FC at home on the 20th. It remains to be seen whether Incheon, which has once again made up its mind through the meeting, will be able to turn around successfully.
