Jeju United defender Jung Un (35) is walking toward the club’s record for most appearances.

Jung joined Jeju in 2016 and has been playing for eight seasons. He played in 196 K-League games. Jung joined Ulsan HD in 2012, but he failed to play a single game, and he played in Jeju after Croatia. He can be seen as more of a “one-club man” in the K-League.

Although he was absent due to injury at the beginning of the season, he is in charge of a place in the defense team amid the lack of key defenders. He started the match against Suwon FC in the 14th round of the “Hana Bank K League 1 2024” held at the Jeju World Cup Stadium on the 26th and led his team to a 1-0 victory.

“It was an important game, and with three points, we were able to pave the way for us to move to the top ranks again. Still, I am thinking positively about the result at home again,” Jung said.

Born in 1989, he became a novice in the team. He came after Kim Geun-bae and Koo Ja-cheol. He was the best player in the match against Suwon FC, where the two players were not on the list. “I don’t say anything else. However, I think that a good team can become a good team only when all players have loyalty to the team and feel attachment to such a team because Jeju has its own characteristics. I think they also say that we can create a culture unique to Jeju.”

Unlike last season, Jeju is introducing a new color of soccer with the appointment of Kim Hak-beom. “I think we have become more straightforward. Last season, we had more possessions on the ball and fewer straight passes,” Jung said. “After Kim Hak-beom came here, we have more passes going forward,” adding, “I think that’s a positive aspect. However, I don’t think we have enough time yet to add more color to our coach’s soccer. I think we will get better after summer.”

Jung had prepared a side defender just before the season, but he is taking the left side of the three-back due to injury sustained by the defender in succession. He will alternate between left side defender and center defender. Jung said, “We urgently need to use the three-back because of injury. That’s why we are standing on the left side of the three-back. This is not a place I’ve never seen before. I’ve seen this before, so I’m familiar with it. Even if you play four-back, there is no fixed place in soccer these days. I try to be more organic.” 토토사이트

Jeju suffered relegation to the second division in the 2019 season, and managed to avoid the relegation zone last season. This season’s start is not a good one either. “In fact, I think Jeju is going through a difficult time. There were times when it was good, but now it’s a little bit bad,” Jung-woon said. “That’s why I think coach Kim has been appointed. If all the members try to change, I think they will move in a good direction. It’s the most regrettable part, but I want to say that everyone is trying hard.”

He also has a goal. Furthermore, Jung can rewrite the travel record after relocating to Seogwipo. He is ranking fourth after Lee Chang-min (204 games), Oh Ban-seok (198 games) and Oh Seung-beom (197 games). “I personally want to increase the number of participations as a member of Jeju,” Jung said. “It is my ambition to become a team that plays within the championship title. There are times when we feel the same way throughout a season. To say what place I want to be, and to win a berth to participate in the AFC Champions League is something that I cannot say right now. If we all have the same will to change our minds, I think we will be ranked high.”
