Reporter Lee Sung-hoon meets Hanwha coach Choi Won-ho, who says he will now ‘show it with results’.
When Choi Won-ho took over the reins of the first team last month after coaching the Hanwha Future Team for the past three years, the fans’ reaction was lukewarm.
There were “truck protests” and “sleepless nights” for Choi, who accused the club of passing the buck to his predecessor.
[Choi Won-ho/Hanwha: I have too many thoughts in my head. Honestly, when I was coach of Futures (2nd team), I slept well. It’s like I’m taking a nap and I can’t sleep until the morning….]

[Choi Won-ho/Hanhwa manager: (Last 22nd) 1-0 game against KIA, by overcoming such tough games, the players also have the confidence to accumulate a lot of wins, which is a good record called a winning streak….]
