“We are benefiting from Kim Jeong-ho’s arrival.”
Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance, led by coach Kim Sang-woo, will play against Korean Air in the 4th round of the Dodram 2022-23 V-League men’s division at the Chungmu Gymnasium in Daejeon on the 11th.
In the previous game, against OK Financial Group on the 8th, it collapsed without using its full strength. The receiving efficiency of the previous game was only 8%, and it showed a lot of disappointment in the serve receive. At the time, it gave OK Financial Group 15 points only as a serve score.
Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance urgently needs to escape from the bottom. If Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance (17 points, 5 wins, 15 losses) wins on this day, it will drop KB Insurance (18 points, 6 wins, 13 losses) and rise to 6th place. In the previous match, they lost unfortunately after a full set match. Can they escape the 5-game losing streak that has continued since last season?
Before the game, manager Kim Sang-woo said, “The players are in good condition. Receiving in the last game was not good. I forgot what I could receive. The opposing serve came in too well. Rather than talking about good or bad, I tried to make up for my shortcomings. I prepared a lot psychologically so that I wouldn’t make that mistake.”
On November 17 last year, Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance received Kim Jeong-ho, Choi Ik-je, and Yang Hee-jun in exchange for Hwang Gyeong-min and Baek Gwang-hyeon to KB Insurance. In particular, Kim Jeong-ho shows a clear presence in the serve as well as offense and defense, and is invigorating the Samsung Fire offense.
Director Kim Sang-woo said, “The training posture is serious, and I like it in many ways. Since Kim Jung-ho came along, he’s benefiting from the serve. He is doing quite well,” he said.먹튀검증
He added, “Today’s partner for Kim Jung-ho is Ryu Yun-shik. It’s actually a difficult team composition. We try to include players who are in good condition or have a good rhythm.”
The first and second rounds were 0-3 shutout losses. However, round 3 was different. In the 3rd round, he gave up the 1st and 2nd sets and almost lost another 0-3, but showed amazing concentration in the 3rd and 4th sets and led the match to the 5th set. Even when he lost, he showed his potential.
Korean Air coach Tommy Tillikainen also said, “Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance became a strong team after Kim Jeong-ho came and traded. It has completely changed.”
Manager Kim Sang-woo said, “In the first and second rounds, we couldn’t take out a set, but in the third round, we brought two sets. I think if we do well, we can catch enough. At that time, the 5th set was also good, but it was regrettable that I missed it. Today, I will try with my own confidence.”
