Ulsan Hyundai manager Yoon Jung-hwan lamented the quality of K-League passing following his side’s K League Classic opening round win against FC Seoul.
The 2-0 victory on Sunday marked a new beginning for the 42-year-old, who managed the J-League’s Sagan Tosu until he was controversially sacked last summer.
“The players’ preparations showed on the pitch and I hope we continue to play even better as the season goes on,” Yoon said after the came according to Inter Football. “We were able to maintain a good balance between attacking and defending, and we didn’t allow our opponents to create dangerous opportunities.”
Asked to compare the K-League to its Japanese rival, the former South Korea international responded: “The K-League is strong, but compared to Japan the passing is slower and there are more errors. If we can improve this, I think (K-League) matches will become more interesting.”
