Coach Kim Ki-dong, who was completely defeated by Gwangju, said, "It's not like it was in its prime... I'll do my best."

Jesse Lingard (registered name Lingard), who was expected to be the most experienced foreign player of all time, debuted on the professional soccer K-League stage that fans were looking forward to. 바카라사이트

He was brought in at the end of the second half and failed to record any attack points.

It was a disappointing debut, with one shot missing the goal and a yellow card.

Lingard's team FC Seoul lost 0-2 to Gwangju FC in the Hana Bank K League 1 2024 1st round away game held at Gwangju Soccer Stadium on the 2nd.

Seoul coach Kim Ki-dong, who conceded a goal to Lee Hee-gyun in the 20th minute of the first half, did not work well until the middle of the second half, so he replaced Kim Gyeong-min in the 31st minute of the second half and brought in Lingard, who he said he did not want to use.

Coach Kim judged that Jesse Lingard's physical condition was not perfect and told reporters that it would be difficult for him to play that day.

However, he had no choice but to throw a bet to turn the atmosphere around.

Lingard, who debuted in the K-League as a substitute, kicked a left-footed shot from behind the penalty arc immediately after being introduced, but it went high.

Lingard, who mainly played on the right flank, was enthusiastic about the field, but was unable to get a chance to score or increase any attack points due to Gwangju's dense defense.

Rather, he violently blocked a counterattack in extra time in the second half and collected his ‘first yellow card’ in the K-League.

Gwangju fans who filled the Gwangju Soccer Stadium loudly chanted 'Send off', saying Lingard's tackle was rough and he should be given a red card rather than a yellow card.

Coach Kim Ki-dong, who met with reporters after the game, said that he had no choice but to place his hopes on Lingard's capabilities in a situation where a make-up goal was needed.

Coach Kim said, “It was a situation where we had to score a goal anyway,” and “Lingard came in with about 15 to 20 minutes left until the end of the game, and when the opportunity arose, we considered the probability of scoring a goal and brought him in.

Although he is not in shape yet, there is a possibility.

“I put it in after seeing it,” he explained.

Coach Kim's evaluation of Lingard's performance was not a 'passing grade'.

Coach Kim said, "Perhaps because we haven't been together for a long time, he wasn't at his peak like he used to be," but added, "I think he showed a good side a few times.

I'll try my best."
