Interview: Daegu FC Wingback Song Gi-woong


Daegu FC have bolstered their flanks by signing Song Gi-woong from Gimhae City FC in the National League. The 1995-born defender signed his first professional contract with Suwon FC back in 2017 but was unable to establish himself whilst at Castle Park. Daegu FC Correspondent Muyeol Jung spoke with Song for an exclusive interview to reveal his uncovered story.

MYJ: You were once seen as a versatile player with real potential whilst with the Korea Team U17 team, but little is widely known about you. What is your primary position and what do you think your strengths are?

GWS: I occasionally used to play centre-back in the University League for tactical reasons, but my primary position is full back on both sides. The strengths in my game are good crossing and powerful, energetic movement.

MYJ: You joined Daegu FC after spending one year with Gimhae City FC in National League (third tier) following a one-year spell with Suwon FC in 2017. However, you have only made only a few appearances since 2017. What were the reasons behind that?

GWS: I picked up a serious ankle injury in a preseason training camp just after I signed for Suwon FC in 2017. As a result, I had to waste almost an entire season due to the injury. I still remember that, at the time, I felt frustrated as I was not getting match-fit as I had expected. Afterwards, I joined Gimhae City FC in the National League and got a lot of help and care from the manager Yoon Sung-hyo.

The former Suwon Samsung Bluewings manager helped me out significantly with ways which I can fully recover match form without being under pressure, nonetheless my recovery was a bit sluggish. I still feel very sorry for him. However, thankfully, towards the end of the season, I was physically getting fitter and fitter, I made five appearances in the National League including the play off at the end of the season.

MYJ: What is your goal this season?

GWS: My personal goal that I want to achieve in this season is to feature in every game, but ideally to make as many appearances as I can. In terms of the team, I would like to help the team get into top six as well as claim wins in the Asian Champions League.
