Seoul, which has launched a signal flare of ‘reconstruction of a famous family’, can only dream of a higher dream when it breaks down its natural enemy relationship.

Coach Hong said, “There is only one message I can give to the players, humility. Not telling the players about the solo system is the best way for me to prepare for the next game.” Seoul coach Ahn Ik-soo, who even received a ‘director’s call’ from the fans, expected, “I think it will be exciting and fun. I wonder if our players will play a role in it.” 스포츠토토
