K-League 1 Gangwon FC midfielder Ikromzon Alibayev received a special order from coach Choi Yong-soo.
On the 10th, Gangwon held a media camp for the 2023 season K-League winter field training at the Songjeong Hotel in Busan and interviewed the players. Alibaev, who attended the meeting, talked about returning to the K-League, coach Choi Yong-soo’s order, and goals for this season.
Alibayev has a relationship with director Choi Yong-soo. When Choi was the manager of FC Seoul, he brought Ali Bayev himself.
Alibayev lived up to expectations by recording 3 goals and 5 assists in 35 games in the 2019 season. He was especially praised for his sharp and accurate passing.
The 2020 season has been a tough year. Coach Choi laid down the baton during the season, and Alibayev was also unable to fully digest the season due to an injury. Eventually, after the season ended, he left Seoul and headed for Daejeon in the K-League 2.
Alibayev, who returned to Uzbekistan after playing for a season in Daejeon, received a love call from coach Choi in December of last year and joined Gangwon. After about a year, I came back to the K-League stage.
Previously, coach Choi said, “I met (with Alibayev) with a good relationship, and it was a short time, but we reached a lot of consensus.” “I know the pros and cons well. I needed a player who could do it like (Bayev). You can look forward to it.”
Alibayev also said that he received a special mission. It was accumulated more than 15 attack points for the season.
Alibayev laughed, saying, “The coach gave me a mission to record more than 15 goals and assists.” I will try again,” he said. 슬롯사이트
Alibayev, who replied “yes,” when he was told that he could get league MVP with that level of attack points, smiled and said, “If you record more than 15 points, you will become MVP.
As for his personal goal, he said, “Accumulating attack points is of course important, but I want to become a player who improves every year. My goal is to become a better player this year than last year and next year than this year.”
Regarding the comparison with Zefarov from Uzbekistan, who played in the K-League in the past, he said, “I know that Zefarov showed a really good performance in the K-League.
Finally, Alibayev said, “I’m really happy to be back in Korea. It’s nice to be able to play with the fans in a good environment. Actually, I don’t think the finish in Daejeon would have been remembered well by the fans. There were injuries, too. I also have the motivation to change my life,” he said.
