From attack to the goal
Until 2011 – when she was 18 years old – Da-Hye played out field. “Offensive, at the top or on the wing“ is how she describes the position where she felt at home in her youth. Up to this point, she had mainly dealt with goalkeepers in one-on-one duels. “Our goalkeepers left the club and we had no goalkeeper at the beginning of the season.Then my coach asked me how I would feel about going in goal for a season. I liked that so much that I just stayed in goal“.
A very good decision. Because Da-Hye is still sure about one point today: “I don’t think that I would have managed to play so high as a field player.“ But as a goalkeeper she did. Since 2018 she has been a member of the squad of the women’s Bundesliga team 1. FFC Frankfurt and was allowed to watch some of the other goalkeepers like the American Bryane “Bree” Haeberlin in the training camp in Portugal.
