Familiar faces have returned to the K-League this season. Among them, Hwang Eui-jo is the most anticipated player. Seoul signed a six-month lease with Hwang Eui-jo on the 5th. Hwang Eui-jo, who could not play in Europe, and Seoul, who needed to strengthen strikers, met the conditions.
Seoul coach Ahn Ik-soo, who trained with Hwang Ui-jo at the Kagoshima camp, also had high expectations for him. Coach Ahn Ik-soo, whom we met at Media Day, said about Hwang Eui-jo’s condition, “You can see it in the opening match. He worked hard to prepare. This is the first place to show to Korean fans after living in Europe. He put a lot of effort into himself. He is confident that he will show a better appearance than feared.”
The trust of his colleagues is also strong. Ilyuchenko, who will lead the Seoul attack with Hwang Ui-jo, said, “Hwang Ui-jo is a very good player. He has a good personality and is adapting well. He will help our team a lot. Recruiting Hwang Eui-jo is a win-win for each other,” he said confidently.
After recovering his form in Seoul, Hwang Ui-jo aims to re-enter Europe. Ilyuchenko encouraged, “If Hwang Ui-jo maintains his condition well, he will do well even after returning to Europe.”
