‘One month left on lease’ Hwang Eui-jo “Time is flying by… I haven’t talked to the coach.”

Hwang Eui-jo, who is nearing the end of his contract with FC Seoul, said he is still considering his future.

Seoul defeated Gangwon 1-0 in the 15th round of the ‘Hana OneQ K League 1 2023’ at Seoul World Cup Stadium at 4:30 p.m. on Aug. 28. Seoul overtook Jeju to move into second place.

Hwang Eui-jo started the match and played until the 35th minute. He mainly helped Seoul’s offense by keeping the ball in the front and making linking plays. He was disappointed in the second half when his trademark winding kick was saved by goalkeeper Yoo Sang-hoon.

When asked about his desperation in the post-match press area, Hwang said, “I’ve been doing it a lot since training. I’m trying to find a way to score on the field. I think the training will pay off, so I just need to prepare well for the next game. For now, we’re back in second place, and we’ll be ready for the next game.”

There was also some criticism of the team’s overall lack of shots. “In the first half, the ball from Palo (Palosevic) came slowly, so I waited a bit. I talked to the other players, looked at it again, and wondered if I should have taken it nonstop right away. I talked about this a lot. Anyway, I’m still thinking and studying how I can shoot or score a little better,” he said.

Hwang emphasized “holding power” over scoring. “The most important thing is that I’m scoring every game. From the first game to now, I’ve been scoring every game. Also, our defenders and veterans such as Sung Yong-hyung and Osmar are protecting us well,” he said. “I think we have a good combination of players who can do a lot for each other and for me. I think we have the strength to hold on a little bit, and in a case like today, we conceded a goal, but we held on and won 1-0. I think we need more of that. I think if we have more strength to hold on, we can continue to compete for higher positions in the future.”

Hwang is currently playing for Seoul on loan. He has one month left on his contract. He has to decide whether to return to his original club Nottingham Forest, stay in Seoul, or find a new team.

“Time is flying,” says Hwang. It’s already been four or five months since I arrived, and I have about a month left. But I don’t know. My first goal is to make Seoul a team that can compete at a really high level. We want to create winning habits, we want to create the perception in the players that Seoul is a scary team, and I think the future part will happen after that. For now, I’ll think about it after we play the rest of the games well,” he said, avoiding an immediate answer 토토사이트.

Before the match, coach Ahn Ik-soo said that he didn’t want to put any pressure on Hwang Ui-jo. “I think the coach is trying to make me feel as comfortable as possible, telling me a lot of things I can do well, plays I can score, positions I can play,” Hwang said, adding, “We haven’t talked about (the future) yet.”

His former club Nottingham finished 16th this season and remained in the English Premier League (EPL). “I saw that they stayed up,” Hwang said. I’ll have to talk to Nottingham when my contract is up, and I’ll have to talk to my agent at the end of it to decide what to do,” he said.
