Coach Seong-Woo Lee said after the game, “Shinhan Bank is a team that performed well in the first quarter. I kept talking about it, but the players didn’t seem to be aware of it. It’s good to have the confidence that you can win anytime, but how to say… . The players and I shouldn’t be arrogant,” he said.
Director Wi Seong-woo continued, “I even turned around at the last minute, but after that, I was told to quit due to a foul, but I couldn’t concentrate. I made a mistake, but I think it was a game in which I could learn. Anyway, the game must go on. I will shake it off and prepare well for the next game.”
