‘Mpoku-Zerso IN’ Incheon, will the 2022 Final A erase the disgrace of the minimum score?￼
2022 was a ‘happy ending’ for Incheon United. In 38 matches of ‘Hanawon Q K League 1 2022’, they reached Final A with 13 wins, 15 draws and 10 losses (54 points). For the first time since its establishment in 2003, it even secured the right to advance to the Asian Champions League (ACL).
There were also regrets. It was aggression. Incheon only scored 46 goals in 38 games. This is the lowest score among the six clubs that reached Final A. It is only 8th among the 12 K-League 1 clubs in the 2022 season. There is a reason. In the first half of last year, Incheon accumulated points with “foreign main gun” Stefan Mugosa 메이저사이트. Mugosa exploded 14 goals in just 18 games. At the time, he was responsible for 60% of Incheon’s 23 goals. Incheon recorded 7 wins, 7 draws and 4 losses with Mugosa’s sharp feet. The joy did not last long. Mugosa left for the Japanese J-League through the summer transfer window. Hernandez, a new foreign player, made a splash by scoring 4 goals and 4 assists in 8 games, but was left with an injury.
Incheon gave strength to reinforce strikers ahead of the new season. Paul-José Mpoku, a striker with strong bones in Europe, was recruited. Mpoku has experience in Leyton Orient (England), Standard Liege, Cagliari (Italy), Chievo Verona (Italy), Panathinaikos (Greece), Al Wahda (United Arab Emirates) and Konyaspor (Turkeye). piled up He especially worked with Lee Myung-joo in Al Wahda. Lee Myung-joo said, “When I played with Mpoku, I saw synergy on the pitch. Thanks to that good feeling at that time, I think (me) was evaluated favorably. Mpoku is a positive virus. I wonder if I can bring a positive part to the team.” have been expecting
He also embraced Gerso, a ‘crack-type winger’ proven in the K-League. Zerso played 37 K-League games for Jeju United last season, scoring 8 goals and 7 assists. Hernandez has also returned from injury and is dreaming of an emergency.
In the new season, Incheon is able to use the Jerso and Mpoku lines on the left and right, centering on Hernandez. The three players are sweating in preparation for the new season in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Attention is focusing on whether Incheon, which has completed the powerful ‘Triangle Formation’, can shake the K-League with strong firepower in the new season.
