Jung Sung-ryong overcomes the ordeal again with top performance in the J-League

Goalkeeper Jung Sung-ryong (39, Kawasaki Frontale) overcame the difficulties he experienced in the early 9th year of overseas expansion and rose back to the top class.

Jung ranks fifth in percentage of clean sheets and no points allowed in the 2024 J1 League. He quickly shook off the aftereffects of the team’s collapse by allowing five runs against Iwata at a home game in the second round.

It is the first time in 2,408 days (6 years, 7 months and 2 days) that Jung allowed five goals in a single game. Even if he expands his career to the entire Japanese pro soccer, he has recorded only three goals so far. 토토사이트 추천

Kawasaki Frontale put Jung on the bench for home and away matches in the third and fourth rounds of the J1 League. However, the team lost consecutive games by allowing three runs. Veteran players who renewed their commitment have clearly demonstrated who is the starting goalie by allowing one run in three games after returning to the starting lineup.

At Kawasaki Frontale, who joined the team in 2016, Jung lost 335 goals and 121 clean sheets in 323 matches including cup competitions. He is ranking second in the club’s 69-year history as the most foreign player to play in the tournament.

Even if the team expanded its scope to the first division of the Japanese pro soccer, it played the second-most games among foreign goalkeepers in the history of Japanese pro soccer. Including individual wins including the best 11 players in the 2018 and 2020 seasons, it is a good match for being called the J1 legendary goalkeeper.

Kawasaki Frontale has won nine times with Jung Sung-ryong, including ▲2017, 2018, 2020, and 2021 J1 League ▲ 2020 and 2023 Japan Football Association Cup ▲ 2019 Japan Football League Cup ▲ 2019 and 2021 Japan Super Cup.

Jung Sung-ryong has set the best record in a single season of the J1 League six times over the past eight years, including △2017 and 2018 most clean sheets △ 2018 and 2021 90 minutes of average minimum runs scored △ 2018 scoreless game ratio △ 2020.

In other words, beyond just allowing fewer goals, the positive effect on the entire Kawasaki Frontale beyond the limitations of the goalkeeper position was the highest in Japanese professional football in name and reality.
