Ulsan Hyundai won 3-1 against Pathum (Thailand) in the first leg of the group stage of the 2023/24 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Champions League (ACL) held at Munsu Stadium in Ulsan on the 19th.

Ulsan, who won the K-League 1 championship last season, is attempting to win the ACL for the third time this season, and will decide to advance to the next round by facing Pathum, Johor Bahru (Malaysia), and Kawasaki Frontale (Japan) in the group stage. However, they started the group stage on a good note by defeating Pathum, their opponent in the first game.

Martin Adam met with reporters after the game and said, “We were slow overall in the first half and had a poor performance, but we were able to win this game through quick passing and aggressive movement in the second half.” 

Regarding scoring a hat trick, he said, “I’m very happy. Scoring a goal is important, but winning is more important. It’s my first hat trick in Ulsan, but I’ve scored a total of three hat tricks in Hungary.”

Martin Adam hit the net for the third time in this game after receiving a cross in the center of the penalty box in the 30th minute of the second half, but the referee declared a foul and the score was cancelled. Then, in the 33rd minute of the second half, he was able to score once again and complete a hat trick.

Regarding the cancellation of one goal, Martin Adam expressed his honest feelings, saying, “I think it was 4 goals, but the referee canceled the score. I don’t know what the problem is.”

Regarding whether he expects coach Hong Myung-bo to use him more after today’s performance, he expressed his expectations, saying, “I think we can expect more in the next game because we scored a goal today.”

Martin Adam, who said he was “very happy” about playing for the first time in the ACL, which is different from the K-League, and that he even scored a hat trick on his ACL debut, said, “The ACL and the league are a little different, but I think all games are the same. In today’s game, the opposing team is “I think they have less power than us, but I think there are teams that are better than us,” he said.

He then expressed his joy, saying, “I felt so good after scoring a hat-trick today that I even got the autographs of the entire team. Now I’m going to take the ball back to Hungary, my home.”
