Kim Jong-min (48), Korea Expressway Corporation manager’s goal for the 2023-2024 season is ‘winning’.
Coach Kim Jong-min, who is training in Japan, said in an interview with the joint press team on the 1st,
“The goal is always the highest,” and “I hate losing the most, so I hope the players also show a desire to win.”
The Korea Expressway Corporation finished the 2022-2023 season in third place in the regular league,
but won the playoffs and championship game consecutively and became the women’s champion.
Coach Kim Jong-min, who brought the team the championship trophy, renewed his contract for three years on the 22nd of last month.
His term runs until the 2025-2026 season. 온라인카지노
The amount was not disclosed, but the club said, “This is the highest treatment ever for a women’s division coach.”
If coach Kim Jong-min, who has led the road construction since 2016, completes the contract period,
he will surpass former IBK Industrial Bank coach Lee Jeong-cheol (2010-2019)
become the longest-serving coach in women’s professional volleyball history.
Director Kim Jong-min said, “I lived in Gimcheon for a long time. “I was worried about whether it was right for me to stay with one team,” he said.
“I’ll chose to renew my contract because the club needs me and I know the team and players well.”
“I think it is the coach’s job to create a team that can win,” he said, adding, “We will continue to maximize our team’s strengths and minimize its weaknesses.”
Korea Expressway Corporation
After the end of last season, Korea Expressway Corporation said goodbye to Park Jeong-ah (Pepper Savings Bank) and Jeong Dae-young (GS Caltex).
Instead, young players such as Ko Ui-jeong, Choi Ga-eun, and Park Eun-ji joined.
Coach Kim said, “Go Ui-jeong has only been with the team for a few days, so she will have difficulties.
Practice games are important to minimize those aspects and find her strengths.”
He added, “Park Eun-ji seems to have an introverted side.
She is a young player and expectations are high.
“He’s a good setter.
I hope he talks more and stays cheerful.”
Expectations are high for new foreign player Vanja Bukiric.
Director Kim welcomed him, saying, “Bukiric exceeded my expectations.
He is positive, adapts quickly, and is willing to learn more.
It has only been a short time since he came to Korea, but he is adapting very quickly.”
He continued, “I think training and practice games are very important because I am a player who does not have much experience,” and added, “There is still some overlap in the movement lines, but it is a matter of settling in during the training process.”
Coach Kim Jong-min said, “Even though Park Jeong-ah and Chung Dae-young are missing, I don’t think our team is that weak.
It’s not that strong either. In the end, it’s important how the players do what I want.
There will be a tough training process.
I have a goal.”
“If you set it low, the players become weaker.
As a coach, my goal is always the highest,” he said, predicting success through training.
