‘Fan Favorite’ Sejingya X ‘Defense Captain’ Kim Young-kwon and ‘ATmadrid One Pick’ Griezmann voted side by side

Kim Young-kwon (Ulsan Hyundai) and Se Jing-ya 토토사이트 (Daegu FC), while Antoine Griezmann (Atletico Madrid) was the ‘one pick’.

Team K League, led by head coach Hong Myung-bo, will play an all-star friendly against Atletico Madrid at Seoul World Cup Stadium on July 27. The 22-man lineup was selected by fans and coaches. The 11 players who received the most votes per position in the fan vote were selected. The coaching staff, including Hong and Choi Won-kwon (head coach of Daegu FC), selected 11 more players based on position and team allocation.

The fan favorite was Sejingya. He received a total of 56,133 votes to take the honor out of 44 total nominees. At the official press conference held at the Seoul World Cup Stadium interview room on the 26th, Sejingya said, “I’m happy to be selected as an All-Star again. I’m grateful. I’m very grateful to be selected by the fan vote. Honestly, I don’t know why they voted me first. I think it’s because of my performance in the last All-Star game and the anticipation of playing again. I’m going to do my best and play my best game. I’m going to give the fans the love they deserve.”

“It’s hard to choose just one player (to play against). All the players at Atletico Madrid are at a high level. But if I had to pick one, I would like to play against Griezmann, it would be a new experience for me. He’s a player who dribbles a lot. I think it will be a new experience for me.”

Kim Young-kwon, the team’s “defense captain,” felt the same way. “I think the players who were selected here are the best players in the K League and have the ability. It’s an event match. I think it’s important not to get injured. A lot of people are coming. I’m not saying this because I’m on the sidelines, but when I saw Sejingya play in Daegu, I thought he was one of the best players in the K League. I also thought he was a good player when we played against each other, but I didn’t think we would be on the same team. I hope we can match up well and have a good game,” he laughed.

“I didn’t think about it. I saw Griezmann. I’ve seen him play a lot. I’ve seen him play for FC Barcelona and I’ve seen him play for Atletico Madrid. I think he’s a good player.”
