Suwon Samsung's 'K2 cheer stamp breaking' emphasizes "supporters' derby

"We have to get a result somehow."

Suwon Samseong will take on league leaders FC Anyang in the eighth round of the 2024 Hana Bank K League 2 at 2 p.m. on Nov. 21 at Anyang Sports Complex.

The two teams are tied for first and second place. Anyang is in first place with 16 points, while Suwon Samseong is in second place with 15 points. Both teams have been on a scary run of form lately and are in a tight race for the top spot.

When we met ahead of the match, Suwon head coach Yeom Ki-hoon (41) emphasized the 'fulcrum derby'. "It's a rivalry match that has been going on since before we came here. We know that the fans' pride is on the line. We think we have to get a result somehow. We need to make the players aware of it one more time."

For this match, Yi started Baek Dong-kyu, who wore the Anyang jersey until last season. "I didn't ask Dong-kyu about Anyang's situation. I told him not to worry about it. I told him not to worry about it because it's not a couple he can control, so he said he would do his best to play his role. I think he has a strong mental part," she said.

The match will be broadcast live on 'Couplepic'. Couple Pick is an original sports content that Coupang Play plans, produces, and broadcasts, and has become a more colorful way to enjoy the game. For the first time, λ°”μΉ΄λΌμ‚¬μ΄νŠΈ Coupang Play has selected K League 2 matches for Couple Pick.

"I think I laughed a lot," said Dyeom, who was on the live broadcast of 'Couple Pick' before the interview. I heard that it was the first K2 Couple Pick. It's a game with a lot of interest. It's unusual for us and Anyang to showcase the second division, but I think we should have a good match."

"When I'm in charge of a team, tactics are important, and there are many important factors, but I think the most important thing is that we don't give up," said Yeom.

"Last season, I heard some bitter comments from fans about why we gave up so quickly. We tried to show that we didn't give up until the end and played until the whistle blew. That's why we scored theater goals. I think we're changing."

The battle for first and second place. "Anyang's foreign players are very good. But what we do and how we do it is more important. We analyzed Anyang and gave the players information, but we said, 'Let's do what we do better. We emphasized that we shouldn't adapt to Anyang, but make them adapt to us."

Yeom is still viewed with suspicion by Suwon fans. "I understand the fans' feelings. I made a promise to prove myself and I have to keep that promise. The fans are very interested in us, and they will look at us differently if we bring results. I think this match is really important for me personally. We have prepared a lot and well, and we have conveyed it to the players."

The Suwon Samsung fans have been traveling to the match with great momentum after the team's relegation from K2. "There are some players who thought they wouldn't get this kind of support if they dropped to the second division. The fans have been giving us a lot of support, and it should be a game that builds their pride."
