‘Victory Guaranteed Check’ Jeon Jin-woo “I’m sorry about last year. This season, I absolutely must…”

Suwon Samsung striker Jeon Jin-woo (24) of the domestic professional soccer K-League 1 (Part 1) is determined to welcome the new season with a stronger body and mind.

Jeon Jin-woo was the guarantee of Suwon’s victory last season. Due to his injury, Jeon Jin-woo, who devoted the off-season to rehabilitation training and joined the regular league late, appeared in 25 games and scored 6 goals and 3 assists. What’s interesting is that Suwon won every game where Jeon Jin-woo scored an attacking point. Suwon coach Lee Byeong-geun also smiled brightly at the official press conference, saying, “There is a saying, ‘If Jin-woo puts in, we win’.”

There was a pleasant jinx, but Jeon Jin-woo said it was a season with a lot of regrets. In a phone interview with this magazine, he said, “If I had recorded a little more attack points, Suwon could have finished the season in a higher rank. I only think of this,” he said. “Personally, there was nothing to be proud of. The team’s ranking was not good, and I had to help somehow.”

During off-season winter training, Jeon Jin-woo prepared two things. The first is stamina, and the second is muscle mass. Jinwoo Jeon participated in the second team winter training since 2018. Last year, he went back and forth between Seoul and Hanam, Gyeonggi-do, all winter, concentrating on his rehabilitation. His preparations have been different this season. He was under the intensive care of new physical coach Juninho. He had a very satisfying off-season.

Jeon Jin-woo said, “I had a lot of muscle spasms in my legs while playing last season. In the second half of the season, he felt his stamina slowing down in the latter stages of the game. I spoke to Coach Juninho about this. (Thanks to coach Juninho) he was able to get extra workouts and care. He prepared diligently for winter training ahead of the start of this season. He thinks he’s pretty well prepared for winter training,” he said.

Jeon Jin-woo, who finished the season with a weight of 69 kg last year, increased his weight by 5 kg this season. Among them, his muscle mass is 3kg. Jeon Jin-woo said, “When I received the data, (after increasing his muscle mass), his speed became faster메이저놀이터. Isn’t modern football more competitive with opponents? I made this decision because I thought I couldn’t just fall down.”

Just like his body that has become stronger, he has also renewed his mindset. Oh Hyeon-gyu (22), a senior and junior at Maetango and a close friend on the team, left for Celtic FC (Scotland). When Oh Hyun-gyu’s advance into Europe was confirmed, Jeon Jin-woo expressed his regret by posting several photos taken with him on his SNS (social media). Oh Hyun-kyu left, but Suwon reinforced Kim Bo-kyung, Kim Kyung-jung, Mulich, and Akosti. For Jeon Jin-woo, the number of competitors has increased.

Regarding this, Jeon Jin-woo said, “A lot of strikers were recruited. It seems like there will be a lot of competition. That’s proof that the level of the team is improving a lot,” he said. It’s not that the competition isn’t good. It creates tension within the team and creates a feeling of ‘we need to show more’ when preparing for a game or during a game. He helps the team,” he said.

Jeon Jin-woo is aiming for double-digit attack points. He said, “Personally, I don’t set attack points. Every time I play in a game, whether it is a goal or an assist, I focus on the part that will help the team unconditionally.” Wouldn’t that help the team more? I will inevitably raise more attack points.”
