Jeonbuk Hyundai striker Moon Seon-min (31), who was once considered one of the best ‘crack’ (a player who changes the flow of the game with his individual ability) in professional football, announced a revival with a multi-goal.
Moon Seon-min was responsible for two goals alone in the Hana 1 Q K League 1 2023 round 3 home game against Gwangju FC held at Jeonju World Cup Stadium on the 12th, leading Jeonbuk to a 2-0 victory.
Jeonbuk, which had no victory after the opening, announced a rebound by reporting its first win of the season thanks to Moon Seon-min’s one-man show.
It was Moon Seon-min who saved Jeonbuk from struggling against the promoted team Gwangju.
Moon Seon-min broke the balance of ‘0’ with a right-footed kick shot in the 28th minute of the second half in front of the gate. Two minutes later, the ball hit the goalkeeper and finished with a right-footed shot to seal the win.
After scoring, Moon Seon-min performed his trademark ‘control tower dance’ twice and smiled brightly.
Moon Seon-min was also the most brilliant player in the entire third round of the K-League 1.
On the 14th, the Korea Professional Football Federation selected Moon Seon-min as the Hana One Q K League 1 2023 3rd Round Best Player (MVP). A spot in the best 11 midfielder also went to Moon Seon-min.
Moon Seon-min, who joined Jeonbuk in 2019 after playing for Incheon United, played 32 games in his first year and scored 10 goals and 10 assists, serving as the main striker.
However, after joining Sangju Sangmu for military service in 2020, after returning to Jeonbuk in 2021, he began to walk his downturn.
In the 2021 season, he scored only 3 goals and 1 assist in 19 games, and in the 2022 season, he appeared in 23 games, but only scored 1 goal and 2 assists.
However, this season, he is showing a different look by scoring 2 goals in 3 games.
The revival of Moon Seon-min is expected to have the same effect as the recruitment of new members in Jeonbuk.
Ahead of this season, Jeonbuk recruited striker Lee Dong-jun, who played for Hertha Berlin in the German Bundesliga메이저사이트, and built a side line with Song Min-gyu.
However, as Lee Dong-jun collapsed due to an injury in the opening game against Ulsan Hyundai at the end of last month and was unable to play in the March game, he suffered from side operations.
Director Kim Sang-sik took out the Moon Seon-min card after much thought. Seon-Min Moon, who played as a substitute in two games after the opening, was given the first chance to start, and Seon-Min Moon responded with multiple goals to the coach’s trust.
Moon Seon-min was pushed out of the competition last season due to an insincere training attitude.
There were even rumors that Moon Seon-min, who had fallen out of favor with director Kim Sang-sik, would leave Jeonbuk.
Even ahead of the Gwangju match, Moon Seon-min boosted his confidence through a personal meeting with manager Kim Sang-shik.
And this led to Jeonbuk’s first win of the season, along with his multiple goals.
The national team, which has been replaced by Jurgen Klinsman as the new manager, is also expected to motivate Moon Seon-min.
Moon Seon-min, who played 14 A matches (2 goals), has been away from the national team since the 2019 East Asian Football Federation (EAFF) E-1 Championship.
However, if the control tower dance continues in Jeonbuk, the Taegeuk mark is not someone else’s story.
However, after twists and turns, Moon Seon-min, who remained in Jeonbuk, tied up his soccer shoelaces again. And from his winter training, he steadily built his body and looked for opportunities.
