“Before coming down to Gwangju, there was talk of surgery.”
Pepper Savings Bank, led by acting coach Lee Kyung-soo, will play against GS Caltex in the 4th round of the Dodram 2022-23 V-League Women’s Division at Gwangju Pepper Stadium on the 23rd.
Pepper Savings Bank fell into a losing streak again after ending a difficult 17-game losing streak in the Korea Expressway Corporation on December 31 last year. They are unable to laugh amid the big and small injuries of the players.
In particular, Pepper Savings Bank is on a 13-game losing streak. Since the 3-1 victory over Heungkuk Life Insurance on February 11 last year, he has not won a single victory. It means that he has not been able to win in the home for 346 days.
Acting head coach Lee Kyung-soo, whom we met before the game, said, “GS Caltex has a lot of work done by Moma, but it is a very strong team. I don’t think it’s going to be an easy game.”
On this day, starting libero Oh Ji-young will be absent. There are no injuries. There was a trade between the two teams at the end of last year. Pepper Savings Bank brought Oh Ji-young instead of giving away the right to pick in the first round of the 2024-25 season. There was a hidden clause in this trade. Oh Ji-young did not play GS Caltex for the rest of the season. Not to mention on this day, he can’t even play the 5th or 6th round.
Acting Lee said, “Oh Ji-young cannot play because there is a trade clause. With Oh Ji-young missing, weaknesses will emerge in the defense. In the end, you have to endure well in receiving.” 스포츠토토
“Moon Seulgi and Kim Haebin are going into the libero. Seulgi Moon will serve as a floater, and Haebin Kim will serve as a spike. However, after Kim Hae-bin and Oh Ji-young came, he could not play. Moon Seul-gi will be the main cast, but Kim Hae-bin will be used as a medium when I can’t catch the mental.”
Park Eun-seo, who was absent from the last KGC Ginseng Corporation exhibition, will skip the game on this day. Park Eun-seo has not even come down to Gwangju, and is resting at a lodging in Yongin, Gyeonggi-do. The ligaments in his left ankle are not good. He underwent surgery during his days as a female singer, and last year he underwent surgery to remove a bone fragment in his left ankle, ending his debut season prematurely.
Acting Lee Kyung-soo said, “I am at the dorm now. Park Eun-seo also talked about surgery before coming down. One of the three ligaments was said to be 80% torn. He doesn’t know if he will have surgery or not. For now, I think I need to rehabilitate and get my strength back. They say things are getting better, but I’ll have to go back and see. The general opinion is that one ligament can survive a rupture. I don’t know if I’ll have to rehabilitate or have surgery later.”
He continued, “Last year, I had bone fragmentation surgery. Even when he was in high school, he had one surgery, but he said it was very difficult because something got tangled.”
