Suwon Gymnasium, Gyeonggi-do, on the 14th, where the 5th round of the 2022-2023 season Dodram V-League Women’s Division between Hyundai E&C and Korea Expressway Corporation will be held. Before the game, both team commanders talked about Montaño (29, 188cm), a new foreign player from Hyundai E&C.
On the 6th, Hyundai E&C hired Montaño from Colombia as a substitute for Yasmin. The decision was made to replace Yasmin, who left from the third round due to a back injury, as the hiatus became longer.
Montaño has performed impressively in the past, winning the top scorer for two consecutive years in the Swiss league. Recently, he has been active as the main gun in Murat Pasa Belediyeje of the Turkish second division, and has contributed greatly to the team’s ranking competition to advance to the playoffs.
Montaño took its first step in the V-League through the Pepper Savings Bank match on the 10th after completing the international transfer agreement (ITC) issuance and player registration procedures. However, he failed to impress, scoring only 13 points and a 37.5% offense success rate. The team suffered an unexpected blow to the lowest-ranked Pepper Savings Bank and fell into a mire of two consecutive losses.
A red flag was turned on on Mercury, the leader of Hyundai E&C. Currently, it is still in first place with 21 wins, 6 losses and 61 points, but the gap with second place Heungkuk Life Insurance (60 points) has narrowed to 1. In the V-League, where the proportion of foreign players is high, Montaño has a responsibility to save a team in crisis.
In an interview with reporters before the match, Hyundai Engineering & Construction coach Kang Seong-hyung said of Montaño, “It’s been a while since I joined the team, so I’m still in the process of getting used to it.”
Then, he explained how to use Montaño. Director Kang emphasized, “Montaño is not a player who plays volleyball with strength and height like Moma (GS Caltex) and Yasmin.
Jeokjang Korea Expressway Corporation director Kim Jong-min presented a similar analysis. Coach Kim has checked Montaño’s skills in the process of replacing foreign players before Hyundai E&C. 토토사이트
Coach Kim said, “(When I checked Montaño at the time), there was a lack of height and strength.” told
The cat bell, which director Kim chose after much thought, is currently playing the role of the main gun of the road construction. As a substitute for Katarina, Catbell, who wore a road construction uniform last December, has scored 197 points in nine games this season.
Finally, director Kim showed his wariness toward Montayo. He said, “I think I should be nervous because I haven’t been able to accurately analyze it yet,” he said.
