Park Dong-jin (FC Seoul), the protagonist of the equalizer in the Jeonbuk Hyundai War, apologized to Jeonbuk children’s fans, saying, “I wanted to let people know that this (Seoul World Cup Stadium) is my area.”
Seoul drew 1-1 in the 11th round of the Hana 1 Q K League 1 2023 against Jeonbuk held at the Seoul World Cup Stadium on the 5th. Seoul, which was dragged off by conceding the first goal 11 seconds after the start of the game, balanced the score with Park Dong-jin’s equalizer in the 33rd minute of the second half after a series of offensive attacks. Seoul, who gained one point, maintained second place (6 wins, 2 draws, 3 losses, 20 points).
Park Dong-jin, who came on as a substitute크크크벳 in the second half, scored his first goal of the season by heading in a cross from Na Sang-ho in the 33rd minute of the second half when the score was trailing 0-1.
Unable to control his joy, Park Dong-jin pointed to the ground with his finger and brought it to his mouth, making a ‘shh’ motion.
He then lifted one of his legs while lying on his stomach. It was as if the dog was marking its territory.
After the game, Park Dong-jin said, “The reason Seoul is doing well recently is not only because of the players participating in the game, but also because of the help from players who are not today, such as injured players,” and “I think we were able to score thanks to those players.” .
Analysts analyzed that the change of head coach Ahn Ik-soo had a positive effect on the team.
Park Dong-jin said, “The coach tried to change a lot. The players also changed accordingly. Young players and senior players are all in harmony, so I’m thinking about what kind of soccer the coach is trying to play. So I think I’m doing well compared to last year.” A lot has changed, even if it’s not 180 degrees. The passion on the pitch and the gestures towards the players have become softer.”
He also explained the meaning of the ceremony.
Park Dong-jin explained, “I did it last year, but I wanted to express that ‘this is my area’. It was a ceremony that said to have fun.”
Park Dong-jin, who scored against Jeonbuk on Children’s Day last year, laughed and said, “I think it’s because my mind is still a child on Children’s Day and Jeonbuk.”
Even so, he wittily replied, “You will know everything when you grow up anyway.”
Lastly, he responded positively, saying, “I have many nicknames, but the hyungs call me ‘mutt dog’ and my fans call me ‘crazy dog.’
