Korean striker Hwang Hee-chan (27, Wolverhampton) drew attention by wearing a tracksuit with a Korean name on it, unlike his teammates.
Hwang Hee-chan entered the stadium wearing a sportswear with his name ‘Hwang Hee-chan’ engraved in Korean in the league away game against Man City held at Etihad Stadium in Manchester, England on the 22nd (Korean time).
Wolverhampton recently prepared special sportswear for the Lunar New Year. A golden rabbit, which means the year of the rabbit, was drawn on the back, and the names of the players were written in Chinese, not English.
Wolverhampton is owned by Chinese company Fuxing International. The Chinese color can only be strong. On this New Year’s Day, Wolverhampton sent a congratulatory message to the club’s social media with ‘Chinese New Year’ instead of ‘Lunar New Year’. 스포츠토토
