Anton Krivochuk is sensing the atmosphere of a large defender.
Daejeon Hana Citizen won 2-0 in the first round match of Hana One Q K League 1 2023 against Gangwon FC at Daejeon World Cup Stadium at 4:30 pm on the 26th.
Daejeon won a perfect result against Gangwon, who gave a nightmare in the promotion playoff two years ago in the K-League 1 return match after 8 years.
Daejeon chose Anton as an ambitious player ahead of the season. He has been through the Azerbaijan national team by age and is a special defender who has played in 27 A matches since 2019.
Neftchi, Azerbaijan’s first division, is an experienced resource with a record of winning the league and participating in the European Football Federation (UEFA) Europa League (UEL).
Anton got a chance to start in the opening game and put on an outstanding performance. He showed off his multi-talented skills while playing both in the center and on the flanks. Based on his solid physicality, he had the upper hand in ball competition and air supremacy, and thoroughly blocked Gangwon’s attack route.
In particular, when necessary, the amount of activity was expanded to the left side, and active cross-linking and overlapping energized the match-up attack.
Anton contributed to Daejeon’s scoreless victory with a stable performance throughout the game. He showed perfect performance in his K-League debut match.
After the game, Anton’s face looked bright and he said, “I was well aware of the importance of the first match. He wants to show a better image,” he said, expressing his feelings about his debut match.
“Now we have taken the first step. I guess I’ll have to play more games to find out. What is certain is that the atmosphere was very good thanks to the fans. I want to say thank you,” he added.
Along with this, “I was fully aware of the meaning of the first match after being promoted to K-League 1. It was important enough to be worth 6 points,” he said, showing a strong will to adapt quickly to the team. 스포츠토토
Anton’s starting sortie was somewhat unexpected. It was because he joined late and did not have enough time to breathe with his colleagues.
Regarding this, he said, “I don’t feel any difficulty in adapting to a new place. I think I got the result because I was breathing well. What is lacking can be adjusted through training and games. He played many matches against strong teams in the national team. I want to transfer that experience to Daejeon.”
The evaluation inside the match for Anton is also good. Coach Lee Min-seong said, “The training posture, integration with the players, and concentration were quite good, so I thought it was possible to participate right away. He applauded, saying, “I don’t understand the language, but the leadership to lead his colleagues is also excellent.”
Anton has now played his first game in Daejeon, but he is showing off his heavy presence in performance and influence on and off the pitch. There is a sense of airflow that will establish itself as a big player in Daejeon, which has challenged the K-League 1 for the first time in 8 years.
