Hwang Eui-jo “Two games left in Seoul… I don’t know where I’ll end up”

South Korean striker Hwang Ui-jo said he has “two more games” left to play in the jersey of professional football’s K League 1 club FC Seoul, but was coy about his future.

“As far as I know, it’s two games,” Hwang said when asked by reporters after Seoul’s match against Incheon United in the 17th round of the Hana One Q K League 2023 at the Incheon Football Stadium on 7 July, how many games he has left with Seoul.토토사이트

“When I first came here, I thought I would have to play 19 games, not including the FA Cup, but after today, there are only two games left. Personally, I want to win the remaining games,” he said.

Hwang, who played for Nottingham Forest (England) and was on loan to Olympiakos (Greece), was looking for a new club when his place in the squad became limited and he was only allowed to move to a league with a spring and autumn season due to FIFA rules.

Hwang joined Seoul on a six-month loan ahead of this winter’s training camp in Japan, marking his return to the K League after a six-year absence.

It’s a move that suggests he wants to return to his original club later this year and challenge for European honours.

With his contract set to expire at the end of June, Seoul now have just two matches left, against the Pohang Steelers on the 11th and Suwon on the 24th.

“I want to win the remaining two games and make sure Seoul stays in a high position,” said Hwang, who has played 16 of the team’s 17 games in the league this season.

When asked if he would stay with Seoul after that, Hwang said, “I don’t know. I’m still in communication with my agent,” he said, adding, “I think we’ll have to talk about it soon.”

Hwang scored the equaliser and his third goal of the season in the seventh minute of the second half with Seoul trailing 1-0, curling in a surprise right-footed shot from behind the penalty spot.

It was his first goal in eight matches since April against Suwon Samsung Electronics.

“It was frustrating (not scoring),” Hwang said. It’s true that I was frustrated, but I was more focused on the team’s victory,” he said. “Now that I’ve scored today, I’ll do well in the next game.”

Commenting on Hwang’s goal, Ahn Ik-soo said, “It’s the best I’ve ever seen. As a striker representing Korea, he is playing a big role in the development of Seoul,” he said.

“His every word is an example to the juniors. He is also a good mentor,” he said, adding, “It is encouraging that he scored a goal as well. I really congratulate him.”

Hwang said he recently told the younger players in the team to be ‘greedy’.

“They are all players who can go high,” he said. They can play not only in the K League but also on a better stage,” he said.

He continued, “I think all players have potential if they have that kind of ambition. If they show their skills well, they can challenge a higher stage,” he said encouragingly.
