Moon Sung-bin (31), who also cheered for Suwon Samsung, said, “I hope we will avoid relegation,” and Suwon Samsung players presented fans with a meaningful victory with their fighting spirit.
In fact, Kim Joo-chan, who led the victory, said, “All the players had the same determination. “I only thought about winning,” he said. “It was at the request of the bench that Mulich connected the ball over with a volley shot.”
Suwon fans did not leave the stadium even after the game and sang the cheering song. Kim Jung-hyun (32) and Moon So-yeon (29) were thrilled, saying, “Kazuki was sent off and ate the first goal, so I didn’t expect it, but I’m so happy.”
Suwon Samsung, one of the most famous professional soccer players, has matches with FC Seoul on the 25th and Gangwon on the 2nd.

Kim Joo-chan’s decision-making power and confidence are great even at a young age. “I think he must have instilled great confidence in other strikers,” he stressed.
