‘National striker’ Hwang Eui-jo (31, Olympiacos) knocks on the door of the K-League.
A transfer market official said on the 27th that Hwang Eui-jo, who has been on loan at Nottingham’s sister club Greece Olympiacos this season as a member of English Premier League club Nottingham Forest, is seeking to return to the K-League this winter.
According to this official, Hwang Eui-jo, who played only two games as a starter in the Greek Super League as a member of Olympiacos this season, picked the K-League as a promising destination while searching for a stage where he could play.
It is known that Hwang Eui-jo considered staying in Europe as the first option. However, he was caught by FIFA rules that prevented him from playing for another European team for the rest of the season. FIFA allows registration of up to three clubs in a single season, but allows only two clubs to play official matches. Hwang Eui-jo has already played an official match with Girondins Bordeaux and Olympiacos this season. He cannot even play in the Nottingham uniform he joined last summer.
However, FIFA applies an exception in the case of transfer to a team with a different league schedule. It means that it is possible to enter Korea, Japan, and the United States, which run the Chunchunje League, unlike Europe, which is a Chunchun Festival. For this reason, European transfer expert Fabricio Romano reported that Minnesota (USA), Vissel Kobe (Japan) and FC Seoul (Korea) were interested in loaning Hwang Ui-jo in the middle of this month. 카지노사이트
It is confirmed that Seoul actually put Hwang Eui-jo on the recruitment list. It is reported that Hwang Eui-jo is in contact and is negotiating a lease. Hwang Eui-jo shares an agent with Hwang In-beom, a teammate of the national team and Olympiacos midfielder. He is affiliated with CAA, one of America’s leading agent companies. Seoul signed Hwang In-beom twice, in April and July of last year, and opened a relationship with the CAA. It seems that CAA was naturally connected to Seoul in the process of finding a place for ‘customers’ to play. When transferring, he will work with Jeon Hyun’s national teammate Ki Sung-yong and Na Sang-ho.
If Hwang Eui-jo returns after 5 years, he is expected to bring a fresh breeze to the K-League. Hwang Ui-jo is called the ‘Joe of Light’ and is a star who has a lot of fandom. He had both looks and skills.
Hwang Eui-jo made his professional debut at Seongnam FC in 2013 and played 140 K-League games in Seongnam uniform until 2017, scoring 35 goals and 8 assists. He scored 15 goals and 3 assists in the K League 1 in the 2015 season and was nominated for the Young Player Award. Hwang Eui-jo, who grew up as a national striker in the K-League, played 53 games (16 goals) in the national A-match. After transferring to Gamba Osaka (Japan) in 2017, he realized his dream of advancing to Europe by joining Bordeaux in the summer of 2019. After scoring 29 Ligue 1 goals in three seasons at Bordeaux, he entered the Premier League last summer.
