“There are nine games left, but I hope to maintain the same performance as now and win all games.”
Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance Ahmed Iqbairi (registered name Ikbairi) wore a Samsung Fire & Marine uniform as the first overall pick in the 2022-2023 V-League Foreign Player Draft.
At the time, many directors were aiming for Ikbairi, so fans had no choice but to pay a lot of attention. Since the start of the league, he has been performing well enough to be ranked 3rd in scoring, 4th in serve, and 3rd in open offense and quick open.
However, even until the middle of the season, Ikbairi had a lot of ups and downs. He did well in the same game, but if he didn’t solve it once, he showed a sluggish appearance after that. But now it doesn’t look like that.
Ikbairi started in the Dodram 2022-2023 V-League Round 5 match against OK Financial Group held at Chungmu Gymnasium in Daejeon on the 11th and scored 20 points (attack success rate 56%) including 3 blocking points and 2 sub points. . Thanks to Ikbairi’s performance, Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance won the set score 3-0 (25-23, 25-19, 25-17).
Iqbairi, who came into the interview room after the match, said, “I feel good because I won, and I have three games left in the 5th round, so I will continue to win.”
Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance won 4 consecutive wins by winning against OK Financial Group. As the driving force behind the winning streak, Ikbairi said, “First, the team matched the rhythm. And the players on the court have done their part, and the players in the warm-up zone are always preparing, so they are showing good shape.”
On this day, Ikbairi caught two attacks from OK Financial Group ace Leonardo Leyva Martinez (registered name Leo) in the third set, giving Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance a clear victory. Regarding this, “I played a lot with OK Financial Group, and I also analyzed courses where opponents often attacked. I blocked while thinking about the analysis results, but luckily it succeeded.” 스포츠토토
The recent flow of Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance is frightening as if no one can stop it. As we continue to show this kind of appearance, on the other hand, there is also a sense of regret about what it would have been like if we had had this kind of appearance from the beginning of the season.
Ikhbairi said, “It is true that there are regrets. Still, I think it’s fortunate that I’m still playing a good game. There are nine games left, but I hope to maintain the same performance as now and win all games.”
Now, Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance’s next opponent is Hyundai Capital. Hyundai Capital is the only team Samsung Fire & Marine has not won this season. Ikbairi knows this too. “Hyundai Capital has a good serve and a high pitch. While preparing for the game against Hyundai Capital, I will make sure to win through stronger training.”
