National striker Hwang Ui-jo, who returned to the K-League for the first time in six years, made a savage determination.
Hwang Eui-jo, who belongs to Nottingham (England), chose a short-term loan for six months to FC Seoul as his position in the team at Olympiacos in Greece became narrow.
Hwang Eui-jo met reporters before leaving for winter training in Kagoshima, Japan on the 6th.
Hwang Eui-jo said, “It was a really important decision for me personally, and it was a tough decision. I hope that I can improve my performance for six months and achieve good results.” He said, “I thought coming to Seoul would be an opportunity to go out to Europe and look good” when asked why he chose Seoul, although there were offers from various professional teams such as the United States and Japan.
Hwang Eui-jo, who was granted a six-month lease by his team Nottingham, desperately needs to play in Seoul to return to the European stage.
Hwang Ui-jo said, “I think he has to play the game with the mindset of a rookie,” and he said with strength, “I have to score a lot of goals so that Seoul can rise to a good position.”
Regarding Hwang Eui-jo’s joining, the FC Seoul team also did not hide their expectations.
Na Sang-ho, a teammate of the national team and the captain of Seoul, said, “I want to achieve the goal of going to the top split by maintaining the top rank while Eui-jo is there.” At the same time, he gave a witty greeting, saying, “Please raise a double-digit score and leave Korea.”
The FC Seoul squad will train in Kagoshima for two weeks to prepare for the opening of the upcoming 2023 season. 먹튀검증
