“A player who plays like that at that age, he’s not in the world.” Daegu manager Choi Won-kwon is still sad about Lee Keun-ho’s retirement

Daegu FC coach Choi Won-kwon commented on the retirement game of “Son of the Sun” Lee Geun-ho (38).

The final match between Daegu FC and Incheon United in the Hana One Q K League 1 Final A held at DGB Daegu Bank Park at 2 p.m. on the 3rd was the last retirement stage for Lee Keun-ho, a great player who has consistently devoted himself to the ground for 20 years since 2004. Lee Keun-ho, who established the offensive line with Edgar and Ko Jae-hyun on the day, played for 60 minutes constantly until he was replaced by Park Se-jin in the 15th minute of the second half. The dedicated play of receiving the ball from the front line, left and right, penetrating recklessly, and rushing to the midfield defense was the same as it was 20 years ago and now. In the match against Gwangju, where he played again in Daegu’s uniform in 2021, Lee Keun-ho, who stormed 90 meters at 32 kilometers per hour to prevent a goal chance for Um Won-sang, the ace of Gwangju at the time, was the same from the first day to the last day. 스포츠토토

When Edgar scored the first goal of the header following Hong Cheol’s cross, Edgar opened his arms wide to Lee Keun-ho. His juniors showed a touching ceremony to lift Lee Keun-ho, a legendary senior player. Lee Keun-ho returned to the bench after replacing the youngest player Park Se-jin, who was born in 2004, and exchanged hugs with coach Choi Won-kwon.

“You did a great job. There is no player in the world who can play like that at that age,” Choi complimented Lee Keun-ho highly. “By playing like that, he enhances the concentration of all players and serves as a link. In today’s final game, he showed off both performance and fighting spirit.” When asked if he still feels sorry for having stopped Lee from retiring three times, Choi replied, “It’s a shame. It’s a shame. I can use a good card as the Joker, but it’s a shame.” “I practiced shooting for the closing game after training yesterday. While I was training with Keun-ho, I thought that no one in the world can ever see him again as a player.”

“If you want to be a coach, come whenever you want. Come when I’m available,” he suggested to Lee Keun-ho, who is starting a new life after retirement. “He’s a friend that I always have to do. He says he will spend time with his family while running a business. As a soccer player, he is capable. I hope he returns to the soccer world soon,” he said, looking forward to seeing Lee again.
