FC Seoul signs national striker Hwang Eui-jo on loan

 Reporter Kim Hyeong-joong = Professional football K-League 1 FC Seoul recruited national striker Hwang Eui-jo.

On the afternoon of the 5th, Seoul announced the rental recruitment of Hwang Eui-jo through an official channel. With this, Seoul has the best offensive team in the K-League, brightening the prospects for the new season.

Hwang Eui-jo, who moved to Nottingham Forest in the English Premier League from Bordeaux in the French Ligue 1 Girondin last summer and then loaned to Olympiacos in Greece, had a hard time adapting to the new stage. In the World Cup, which came out in his unpredictable condition, he showed a somewhat disappointing performance, and eventually his lease contract with Olympiacos was terminated.

In this situation, due to the rules of the International Football Federation (FIFA), it was impossible to transfer within Europe. According to FIFA regulations, it is not possible to play for three clubs on the same continent in one season, so Hwang Ui-jo received interest from multiple teams in the K-League and American Major League Soccer (MLS). His skills in France, one of Europe’s top five leagues, over his three seasons were enough to make him a target for several clubs. In the end, the final choice was Seoul, and they started to accompany them for a rebound. 토토사이트

The joining of Hwang Ui-jo in Seoul, which suffered from poor scoring last season, is like a thousand horses. Although they had German striker Ilyuchenko and national striker Na Sang-ho, Seoul was the second team with the least score last season with 43 goals in 38 matches. At the beginning of this year, franchise star Jo Young-wook joined the military, so reinforcements were needed. I already put out the urgent fire with Im Sang-hyup and Kim Kyung-min, but the depth of the forefront was somewhat disappointing.

Hwang Ui-jo had a hard time last summer, unable to complete his pre-season training due to the delay in the transfer process. However, as he has proven sufficient competitiveness in the K-League, which was his professional debut, his great performance in Seoul is expected. Hwang Eui-jo made his professional debut at Seongnam FC in 2013 and scored 30 goals in 121 matches in the K-League 1 stage for four years. Especially in the 2015 season, he exploded his potential by scoring 15 goals.

After meeting the coaching staff and the team on the 5th, Hwang Eui-jo is scheduled to leave for Kagoshima, Japan, where the field training will be held with the team on the 6th.
