Coach Hu In-jeong, who lost 12 games in a row
KB Insurance manager Hu In-jeong, who was disgraced by the club’s record for the most consecutive losses, did not hide his frustration.
After losing the 2023-2024 professional volleyball men’s match against KEPCO by a set score of 0-3 at Suwon Gymnasium in Gyeonggi Province on the 2nd, coach Hu In-jeong said, “Andres Villena (registered name Villena) is actually suffering.” “I ran after receiving fluid,” he said. “The other strikers should have added strength, but it’s a shame that Villena seems to have focused on the attack alone today.”
He added, “Viyena always carries at least two middle blockers from the opposing team,” and added, “The opposing attackers should have been able to attack smoothly, but that was not the case. Even good attackers have their limits.”
Coach Hu In-jeong then even mentioned the word ‘trade’.
Coach Hu said meaningfully, “Even if we trade, the cards must match,” and “I think a decision will have to be made within the third round.”
KB Insurance won against Korea Electric Power Corporation on October 17, the first game of this season, and then lost 12 games.
In the game on this day, they continued to show lethargy and lost with a set score of 0-3.
This is the second time that KB Insurance has suffered 12 consecutive losses, following the 2019-2020 season. If they lose in the next game, they will have the disgrace of having the longest losing streak since the team was founded.
There are no sharp numbers visible.
It will take a long time for striker Hwang Kyung-min, who left last month due to a rib fracture, to return.
Coach Hu In-jeong said, “I think Hwang Kyung-min will be able to return after the fourth round.”
On the other hand, KEPCO coach Kwon Young-min, who blew the whistle for 6 consecutive wins, praised the team, saying, “Senior players such as Park Cheol-woo and Kim Gwang-guk played an invisible role. Although they did not play a lot of time, they were a great help in overcoming difficult situations.” .
