Will striker Hwang Eui-jo (31, Olympiacos), who represents Korean football, finish his European career early? While staying in Europe has become difficult, it is expected to seek a revival in other leagues such as the United States.
Fabrizio Romano, an expert on the European transfer market, said on the 13th (Korean time), “Minnesota of the US Major League Soccer (MLS) has officially signed Hwang Ui-jo to Nottingham Forest (England), the original team of Hwang Ui-jo, whose lease contract with Olympiacos has expired. suggested,” he said.
After starting his professional career at Seongnam FC, Hwang Ui-jo moved to Gamba Osaka in the summer of 2017. Then, in July 2019, he joined Bordeaux (France) to build his European career in earnest. 바카라
He seemed to solidify his position by playing as a starter at Bordeaux, but bad news struck. The team was relegated to the second division last season after repeated sluggishness.
In the end, Hwang Ui-jo went out to find another team, and Nottingham Forest, which had been promoted to the Premier League, sent a love call. After moving the team to Nottingham Forest, he immediately moved to Olympiacos on loan and stepped on the stage in Greece.
But maybe he wasn’t compatible with the Greek stage? Hwang Ui-jo played in 5 regular league matches and 6 Europa League matches, but failed to score a goal. In the end, he was pushed out of the competition for the starting lineup and was even excluded from the list. He ended up in a position of contrast with Hwang In-beom, who also belongs to Olympiacos.
The aftermath extended to the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. Hwang Ui-jo started in the first leg of the group stage against Uruguay, but did not show much power. In the end, he virtually gave up the position of the main striker of the national team to Cho Kyu-seong (Jeonbuk Hyundai) from the second game of the group stage.
Now Hwang Ui-jo must find a new team. However, he is unlikely to play in Europe any longer. According to FIFA rules, players can register for up to three teams in a season. During this period, only two teams are allowed to compete in official competitions. Hwang Eui-jo can no longer play for other European teams as he has played official matches for Bordeaux and Olympiacos this season. Instead, unlike Europe, it is possible to participate in leagues where the season is held from spring to fall. The US, Korea, and Japanese leagues fall into this category.
Teams showing an active interest in Hwang Eui-jo are known to be MLS clubs. Fabrizio Romano said, “Los Angeles (LA) FC, Portland Timbers, Chicago Fire, Vancouver Whitecaps, as well as FC Seoul and Vissel Kobe are showing interest in Hwang Eui-jo.”
