Lose against Johor, Suwon coach blames to weather condition

Suwon Bluewings head coach Lee Lim Saeng said the main factor that made them unable to beat the Malaysian team was the weather.

After back-to-back defeats against Vissel Kobe and Johor Darul Ta’zim, Suwon Bluewings is sinking in Group G of the 2020 AFC Champions League with no points gained in the first two matches.

Although the Korean side dominated the game when they traveled to Malaysia to face Johor Darul Ta’zim with 62% of the possession ball rate, they could not find any possible method to win this match.

Suwon Bluewings conceded at the beginning of the first match, which made them unable to play as they wanted. However, head coach Lee Lim Saeng believed his players tried very hard to fight against one of the best clubs in Southeast Asia.

They just lost due to the difficulty of the Malaysian weather conditions, which was very hot compared to the cold winter in South Korea.

"It was the first time for Suwon Bluewings players to play under such weather conditions, so we could not overcome it", says Lee Lim Saeng. "Of course we want to win this game, but the weather condition prevented us from doing that".

In terms of Johor Darul Ta’zim, coach Benjamin Mora said his players fought with their best to win this game. Compared to the South Korean side, they created more opportunities to score goals.
