“However, we have experienced the J-League for about a year, so if Mugosa plays, we expect him to show his decisiveness, which is his strength.”
Facing a tough opponent in Yokohama F.Marinos (Japan) as soon as they entered the Asian stage, Incheon United head coach Cho Sung-hwan is looking forward to the performance of ‘goalie’ Mugosa.
Incheon will host Yokohama at Nissan Stadium in Yokohama, Japan, on Sept. 19 at 7 p.m. in the first leg of their 2023-2024 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Champions League (ACL) 바카라사이트 Group G match.
Incheon finished fourth in the K League 1 last season and will compete in the ACL for the first time in its 20th anniversary year.
However, they are unlikely to get off to a flying start. Yokohama were the J1 League champions last season and are flying high in second place this season.
Cho’s eyes will be on Mugosa, who returned to the J-League this year and has been scoring goals again.
Mugosa moved to Bissell Kobe last summer after playing for Incheon, only to return to Incheon after losing out on a starting spot and bruising his ego.
If the decisive midfielder can show his class, Incheon will have a good chance of coming away with three points on the road.
“I didn’t ask Mugosa to do anything in particular,” Cho said, “but since he’s been with the national team (Montenegro), I gave him time to adjust his conditioning.”
Yokohama has midfielder Nam Tae-hee, a former South Korean national team player who has played in the Middle East League.
“I think Yokohama, who have the advantage of building up from the back, saw the merit of Nam Tae-hee, who has solid fundamentals,” Cho said.
Midfielder Lee Myung-joo, who also attended the press conference, said, “Nam Tae-hee is a good player who has experienced the European and Asian stages,” adding, “I think we will have to stop him well.”
“We’re tired because we played a league game just two days ago, but the Incheon players have prepared enough to play today,” said Lee Myung-joo, adding, “We will show a good performance in front of the fans who came to support us.” 슬롯
