Did not want to be complacent with the praise his coach, Kim Gil Sik gave after making his charming debut with Ansan Greeners at the KFA Cup, Sunday (28/3).
“The point is that I want praise or insults, I always make introspection and motivation for me. Because today I am praised one day maybe I will get insults, so I always make both of them part of the motivation to keep getting better,” Asnawi told CNNIndonesia.com, Monday ( 29/3).
Asnawi was played as a starter when Ansan won 1-0 over South Korea’s fourth caste team, Yangpyeong FC. He was placed in his favorite position at right-back and played for 90 minutes. Berita Olahraga
“I am very happy and grateful to finally be able to undergo the first match, because what we know is that I have to face a lot of trials at the beginning, namely having to quarantine twice and also the weather here is very cold. Alhamdulillah now I can adapt to the weather,” he said.
Even though he was successful in his debut as Ansan Greeners, Asnawi admitted that there were still many shortcomings that had to be improved.
“In my first debut, there are still many shortcomings that I have to improve. I have to work even harder, now I am still in the process and I always believe in the process,” said Asnawi. Berita Dunia
Furthermore Asnawi, the 21-year-old defender admitted that he has no problem with language so far. According to him, everywhere the language of football is almost the same.
The former PSM Makassar player also said there was a difference felt between soccer competitions in Indonesia and South Korea.
“In terms of language, it is safe, the problem is that almost all of them are the same as the language of football. If there are differences, the intensity is very high here and the game here is very hard,” said Asnawi.
Asnawi hopes that his presence at Ansan Greeners can bring the team, which is currently in the second caste of the South Korean soccer competition, up to the highest caste of the K-League. Politik Eropa dan Prusia
