Hyundai Capital head coach Choi Tae-woong, who was looking forward to the start of the 2023-2024 season with confidence before the match, entered the press conference after the match with a troubled face.” If the opponent made about one unforced error in the entire match, we made about two per set,” Choi lamented .Hyundai Capital lost the opening match of the men’s professional volleyball tournament against Korean Air on Thursday with a set score of 0-3 at Gyeyang Gymnasium in Incheon.
It was a two- to three-point game in each set, but they couldn’t get over the hump and fell to last season’s champions Korean Air. Choi expressed his disappointment with the physical condition of outside hitter Jeon Kwang-in, who was not in top form. He said, “The core of our team is Jeon Kwang-in. It’s a problem that he’s not in good shape. (Not being able to attack from the outside hitter position) pushed our offense to one side. That’s not what I want.” Hyundai Capital’s foreign player Ahmed Iqbairi (real name Ahmed), who made his debut on the day, scored a team-high 30 points.
However, he was responsible for more than half of the offense with a 55.21% offensive share, exposing the opponent’s offensive avenues in every game .Heo Soo-bong, who lost his spot to the signing of Apogee spiker Ahmed, scored 10 points from the middle blocker position .Coach Choi said, “He was actually training at the outside hitter position, and his reception was better than expected, but he couldn’t attack. He still needs time to adapt to attacking in the opposite direction from his original position,” Choi said, predicting that he will play middle blocker for the time being.
“I need more time to get my hands and feet in sync. I won’t be at full strength until the middle of the second round. “Meanwhile, Korean Air head coach Tommi Tilikainen said after the opening win: “The players had a fire in their eyes until the end. I liked the way they wanted to win. They have a really good defense, especially Ahmed in the offense. It was a fun and good match.” “We have some technical things to work on. We have another game next week, and we need to grow and improve 온라인카지노 every week.”
