KB Insurance men’s professional volleyball head coach Hoo In-jung expressed his disappointment with the wrong call in the OK Financial Group match on Nov. 24.
“I think such judgments are part of the game,” he said, adding, “If we had won that game, we would have hit less, but it’s hard to lose. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t hit.”
KB Insurance lost a valuable point in the fifth set at 9-12.
OK Financial Group setter Kwak Myung-woo’s overnet call was overturned after video review.
However, a post-match review the next day revealed the error, and the referee and expert committee members were disciplined.
“I told the players that it was unfair and frustrating, but not to worry too much about it and to focus on the game,” said Hu. I told the players to refrain from complaining about the referee’s decision as the staff will take care of it.”
Meanwhile, KB Insurance setter Hwang Seung-bin is out for the season with an ankle injury.
“I recently had a problem with my ankle and went to the hospital, but there is a piece of bone missing. I think I’ll have to have surgery after the league.”
Korean Air head coach Tommi Tilikainen is confident about the season ahead.
Korean Air, which won its third consecutive overall title last season, hasn’t gotten off to a great start with a 1-2 record.
In particular, the 25th game against Woori Card was a bitter pill to swallow after a 165-minute battle, the longest in history.
“We need to turn things around, but the most important thing is that we can play well,” Tilikainen said, adding, “Our players know what role they have to play and the team atmosphere is very good.” 파워볼분석
