He continued, “If you look at Daegu’s recent scoring path, they make good use of their quick counter-attacks. I will think carefully about how to manage this part. In particular, we need to reduce the number of times the ball goes to Se Jingya as much as possible and work together to block him in defence. He’s dangerous if given space. That’s why you have to focus on him,” he added.
