Ataru led Ulsan to a 1-0 victory by scoring the winning goal in the 6th minute of the second half in this season’s first round opening match against last year’s FA Cup champion Pohang Steelers held at Munsu Stadium in Ulsan on the 1st.


Its Ataru, who left Urawa Reds (Japan) last year and wore the Ulsan uniform,

had a hard time competing for the starting position in the early part of the season,

but played an active role as a key midfield resource from the mid to late half,

helping Ulsan achieve its second consecutive victory in K League 1.

Ataru, who played in 21 games last year, received a good report card with 3 goals and 3 assists,

and started as an attacking midfielder behind ‘goal scorer’ Joo Min-gyu in the opening match against ‘enemy’ Pohang in the ‘East Coast Derby’.

In the 6th minute of the second half, Ataru, who caught the ball on the left side of the penalty area,

attempted a strong shot-like cross toward Joo Min-gyu, who was rushing toward the goal.

The ball did not catch Joo Min-gyu’s toes, but bounced in front of the goal and was sucked into the goal,

creating a so-called ‘cross + shooting’.

It was the first goal in K League 1 this season and the winning goal that decided Ulsan’s victory.

After the game, Ataru met with reporters and said,

“Today is the opening match, and it was the East Coast derby.

I am happy that our team came together and won.”

Looking back at the goal situation, he explained,

“It was the play I promised Joo Min-gyu from the first half.

It happened as I said.”

When the reporters asked, “Was it a cross? Was it a shot?”, Ataru answered honestly, “It’s a cross” with a smiling face.

Ataru then said with a straight face, “I have had more opportunities to play since the summer last year.

I had a difficult time before that,” and added, “I had a good experience, and I was lucky enough to score a goal in this year’s opening game.

I will help Ulsan win the championship this year.” I promised.
