Busan coach Park Jin-seop on losing the title in front of his eyes “The players worked hard”

After narrowly missing out on the title in the last minute, Busan I-Park head coach Park Jin-seop vowed to fix the team’s disappointment.Busan drew 1-1 at home against Chungbuk Cheongju FC in the final 39th round of the Hana OneQ K League 2 2023 at Busan Asiadju Stadium on Saturday afternoon, conceding an equalizer through Jorge just before the end.This ended Busan’s dreams of winning their first ever K League 2 title.In a match played at the same time, Gimcheon Sangmu pulled off a dramatic last-minute comeback to beat Seoul Eland 1-0.Busan, which finished the regular season with 20 wins, 10 draws and six losses (70 points), fell behind Gimcheon (22 wins, 5 draws and 9 losses – 71 points).”The players have struggled a lot throughout the year, and I think there will be some disappointment,” Park said at the post-match press conference, adding, “We need to watch the remaining games (of the K League 1 teams) and analyze the teams we will face in the (relegation playoffs).”

Having missed out on a direct ticket to the top flight, which is awarded to the winner of the K League 2, Busan will now have to play a relegation playoff against the 11th-ranked team in K League 1 as the runner-up.On the day, Park called most of his players to the penalty box midway through the second half after taking a 1-0 lead to “solidify” the game.Ultimately, this decision paid off.
