Post Match | Daegu's Go Jaehyeon "I am so happy to score after having a difficult time"



Daegu FC are back to winning ways with a 1-0 win over Jeju United after local boy Go Jaehyeon ended his goal drought with a tap in on 62 minutes. Daegu FC correspondent Muyeol Jung caught up him in the press conference.

How are you feeling after the game?

I am so happy to win today. In fact, Daegu seems to be having a hard time at this time of year like the last year. However, going through this kind of time together, we feel like we become a one-team and a solid team by overcoming it together. Today, I felt that way. Before the game, I watched many fans in the stands and told myself that we needed to win.


It’s well known that you personally had difficult times for last couple of months including the time that you failed to make it to the Korea’s U23 Team for Asian Game. How did you pick up yourself?


In fact, I had a really hard time, and I prepared myself, thinking it was okay. On the look, I always pretended to be okay, but in fact, I felt that I was down a lot in terms of performance on the field. So I thought I shouldn't give up and dwell here. While I was spending time in Daegu, I had to overcome the difficult times and turn things around for me. So I thought I shouldn't give up, thinking people around me, coaches, and fans. In conclusion, there was only one way (to get out). I had to prepare more than before. In fact, during that time, I lost a lot of confidence in myself. However, in order not to lose more, I prepared by shouting and playing louder at the training ground. I think today could be a turning point. So far, I don’t think this crisis has not been completely overcome. (There’s still) a long way to go. I will try even harder for the team.


Before the game, the coach said he told you "Don't feel pressured to do too well, just follow your guts". How did you find that?

The director told me those stories while working out. In fact, looking back on when I did well, I think I enjoyed the game purely rather than thinking about what to do in this situation. I ran with that mindset again today.



Can you talk us through the goal scoring moment?

While preparing for the game, I repeated to myself that “I could always do it and the opportunity would surely come”. Also, we prepared a lot for the set play, and luckily, the ball headed by Hong Jung-woon hit the goalpost and fell forward to put it in. After scoring the goal, I felt the pain of the past few months washed away at once. It's been a long time since I heard the fans' cheers for me, and I wanted to enjoy it more by myself, so I stayed longer and enjoyed it more. This feeling is really hard to put into words. My teammates also came and said congratulations. Before the start of the second half today, Oh Seung-hoon, who is actually quiet and reserved, called me and told me not to feel pressured to score and just enjoy it. I am really grateful and moved by his words. Lee Keunho also said congratulations on today’s goal.





Jeju's attack at the end of the second half was very fierce and came so close to a goal. How were you feeling watching it from the touchline?

I watched it for about 15 minutes outside, and it felt like an hour. I had two thoughts. I was thankful and sorry to my teammates when I saw them running outside. And I also imagined that I would like to win and come here for an interview.
