“Gustavo has declared himself FA Cup top scorer and winner”.
Jeonbuk won the 2023 Hana OneQ FA Cup Round of 16 match 5-2 against Paju Min Football Club at Jeonju World Cup Stadium at 7 p.m. on Thursday. The result punched their ticket to the quarterfinals.
Gustavo, who scored four goals, was the main contributor to the victory. After opening the scoring and scoring two goals in regular time, Gustavo continued to lead Jeonbuk’s offense in extra time. He worked hard to capitalize on the opportunities created by his teammates.
After the game, Gustavo said, “I thought Paju Min Football Club was a difficult opponent. “I’m really happy to reach the quarterfinals of the FA Cup,” he said. “Not only did we score four goals today, but acting coach Kim Doo-hyun emphasized the organizational aspect. If the players do what he and the coaching staff want, we will do even better in the future.”
Of course, this season didn’t go as well as expected. Gustavo scored just one goal in 10 games in the K League 1 this season. Gustavo promised to turn things around. 안전놀이터
“Last year and this year, I didn’t get a lot of playing time. “It’s true that my playing time has decreased compared to other years,” he said. “As my playing time decreased, I couldn’t improve my performance. If I get more playing time in the future, I want to do a better job. I want to work hard on the training field so that I can always be on the field. They gave me a good opportunity, so I will try to be positive and humble in the future,” he emphasized.
He added, “There are no big changes. But the atmosphere has improved as the results have improved. I will show a different face in the future.”
A Jeonbuk official said, “Gustavo emphasized before the game that he would challenge for the FA Cup goal scoring title. Even though we are playing against a K3 League team, we are preparing fiercely to fulfill our promise. Gustavo vowed to be different. “My training is much more focused than usual. I know the team’s situation, so I will do my best to win the top scorer’s title and the FA Cup back-to-back,” he explained.
