High intensity. Actively. Don’t give up”… Director Bell’s ‘Favorite’ Korean for 5 years in Korea
players picked ‘high intensity’ as their favorite Korean word, befitting coach Colin Bell, who does high-intensity training.
On the 26th, a new year press conference was held at the Gwanghwamun Soccer Hall in Seoul, where Bell coached the Korean women’s national soccer team. The women’s national team will play the Arnold Clark Cup in February this year and the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand in July. On this day, the Korea Football Association announced a 26-man training list ahead of the Arnold Clark Cup. Of these, 23 will compete in the competition in England.
After completing the World Cup and Arnold Clark Cup Q&A with reporters, Bell had time to briefly answer fans’ questions. As her favorite Korean language, director Bell picked ‘high intensity’, ‘actively’, and ‘don’t give up’.
When high intensity came out as the first word, a smile spread at the press conference. This is because coach Bell himself has a reputation for ordering intensive training to his players. For example, when she calls up the national team, she does a shuttle run fitness test called ‘Beep Beep’. Young players who have been called up to the national team for the first time express their bewilderment. Of course, veterans are no exception. In the case of the domestic group, they say that the intensity is much higher than that of their team.
Director Bell is a well-objectified person. She knows this well, so she jokes about it. The reason he was able to say this was his confidence. Coach Bell said, “The word ‘confidence’ is the first Korean I learned. now it’s big I hope to reach the peak in the World Cup,” he said.
It’s worth showing confidence. After the appointment of coach Bell, the women’s national team was equipped with the ability to fight on an equal footing with China and Japan, which were considered one-up. In the 2020 Tokyo Olympics women’s football final qualifying playoffs, they unfortunately knelt down to China after a close match, and in the 2022 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Women’s Asian Cup, they reached the final and runner-up for the first time in women’s football. 메이저사이트
Bell has a contract until August 31, 2023. The final destination is the Women’s World Cup in July. For this World Cup, Bell trained constantly and urged her players to play hard and not give up.
As for the good things about her life in Korea, Director Bell said, “I hope to be satisfied with both work and life and stay for a long time. It is a safe country and there are many cafes I like.” Director Bell has been leading Korea with all his heart. Both Korea and coach Bell will want to continue to accompany each other. To that end, the World Cup results are more important than anything else.
