“They love when I fight, or when we fight. It’s unbelievable for me when I come out, all the people stand up and clap for me.

“Before I came here, I liked this stadium and I liked the fans, because Lee Young-pyo played here, so I watched games. I like a small stadium that’s close, tight, and the fans are amazing.”
