Johor conceded three goals in the first half alone. Ulsan defender Kim Tae-hwan was sent off in the 27th minute, but the team could only manage one goal in the second half. After the game, Coach Solari said, “It was a very difficult game. We conceded a quick goal in the first 15-20 minutes. Ulsan came out rough. We also had a red card. We scored another goal in the second half, but it was unfortunate.”
Johor’s next opponent is also Ulsan. They face Ulsan at home. “We didn’t show the performance we wanted in the first half,” said Solari. But we learned from them in terms of mental strength. In the second half, we controlled the game. I think this will allow us to show good performances in the future.” “It won’t be easy to pass the group stage, but I think the situation is the same for all teams. Our next match is at home. We will be able to show a better performance.”
Johor, meanwhile, has Japanese midfielder Kunimoto, who was terminated from his contract with Jeonbuk Hyundai for drunk driving. He did not travel with the team to Ulsan. “Johor has eight foreign players, including Kunimoto,” said Solari. He is part of the team’s plan. He will play in the remaining matches,” said Solari.
