Shin Young-cheol has another memorable match in his memory.
On Nov. 25, Woori Card rallied to beat Korean Air 3-2 (13-25, 32-34, 32-30, 25-18, 17-15) in the first round of the Dodram 2023-24 V-League Men’s Division at Jangchung Gymnasium in Seoul.
The dramatic reverse sweep gave 바카라사이트 Woori Card its first four-game winning streak of the season and gave head coach Shin Young-cheol the most wins in the men’s program (277). He broke his predecessor Shin Chi-yong’s record of 276 wins.
The team also completed a sweep at home against Korean Air, extending their home winning percentage to 100 percent this season. Matej was the top scorer for both teams with 47 points.
After the game, Woori Card head coach Shin Young-cheol said, “I think today’s game will be the most memorable,” and expressed his satisfaction by saying, “It was a very memorable game because we recorded the most wins, and we didn’t give up even when we were losing, and we won until the end.
On this day, Woori Card lost the first and second sets, but from the third set, Matei warmed up and played a fierce reversal.
Coach Shin said, “We always emphasize to our players what to do after we finish volleyball, but we didn’t do that at the beginning of the day, so I said something in the middle of the game. I told them what to do and how to do it, win or lose, and they didn’t do it. That’s why I said earlier that our team is a work in progress,” he emphasized.
“He still doesn’t seem to be confident with the toss, which is another challenge,” he added.
“I think he has a lot of potential to improve, but he still needs to work on his hand shape, his leg angle, and his blocking timing. In defense and offense, there are things that we always emphasize, but if you carry (the arm shape) or if you drop it, you will make mistakes,” he said, adding, “Matei follows the order very well, and today, when it was crucial, we got the points. I’m always grateful to him.”
He also feels good about the record for the most career wins in the men’s game, but he knows he has to keep moving forward if he doesn’t want to break it. When asked about his feelings, he said, “It feels good and it’s an honor for me as an individual,” but added, “It’s the role of a coach to be a beacon for the players. The club and the players have done a great job, but I can’t do it alone. I am grateful.”
The Woori Card will try to win their fifth consecutive game against Korea Electric Power on May 29.
