For Incheon United frontline forward Mugosa, 31, a year with Vissel Kobe in Japan’s J1 League is a scar he doesn’t want to remember.
Mugosa started and played the entirety of Incheon’s Hana One Q K League 2023 Round 25 match against Jeonbuk Hyundai on Saturday afternoon at Jeonju World Cup Stadium in Jeonbuk.
Mugosa, who moved to Kobe, Japan, last summer, made his return to the K League after 407 days. Although he didn’t record any attacking points, he made his presence felt. He competed strongly in front of the opponent’s goal and made some unexpected shots. During a corner kick in the second half, he encouraged the Incheon fans who had traveled to support the team.
“I’m very happy to make my comeback,” Mugosa said after the game, adding that he did his best in today’s match. “It’s hard to say that I’m at my best yet,” he explained. “I don’t feel like I’m fighting my opponent, but I feel like I’m fighting myself,” he said, adding, “I will try to improve my condition as soon as possible.”
When asked to talk about his time in Kobe, Japan, he stiffened.
“The coach who picked me before I went to Japan was fired while I was signing my contract, and a new coach came in, and he was a coach who played Japanese players, and he still plays Japanese players,” Mugosa said.
“Even Andres Iniesta didn’t play when I was there,” he said, adding that many foreign players have had problems with their managers.바카라사이트
However, Mugosa thought he would be an exception. “I was in great shape before I went to Japan, and I had high hopes because I was in good shape,” he said, explaining that he was also excluded.
“To wrap it all up, I wish Kobe the best of luck, but it’s something I don’t want to remember and don’t want to talk about in the future,” Mugosa said. “From now on, I want to write only good memories in beautiful Korea,” he emphasized.
