Ji-seong Park (42), director of Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors, announced that he would actively help Kyu-seong Cho (25) advance into Europe.
Scottish media ‘Football Scotland’ conducted an exclusive interview with Park Ji-sung on the 24th (Korean time).
Park Ji-sung said, “It’s not just one reason. The transfer market is very complex.”
Cho Kyu-sung raised his stock price last year by making a big success at the K-League 1 scorer and the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. He showed interest in Europe, such as Celtic and Mainz, but his transfer failed as clubs could not narrow their differences. Cho Kyu-seong, who decided to stay in Jeonbuk, delayed his European advance by six months.
Park Ji-sung explained, “Celtic did not make an official proposal, but through an agent,” and “On the other hand, Germany’s Mainz talked directly with me.”
Park Ji-sung is in the position that preparing in Korea and going to Europe is more helpful to the player. He predicted, “Playing in Korea helps me learn the language and prepare. I will be able to transfer to a suitable club in the summer transfer market preparing for the season.”
He emphasized that gaining experience in other European leagues is more important than going directly to the top 5 European leagues. Park Ji-sung said, “It will be more helpful for an Asian player like Cho Kyu-seong to succeed if he goes to a lower league than to go to the top 5 leagues such as the English Premier League (EPL) first.”
He continued, “I like teams like Celtic and Rangers for Cho Kyu-sung.”
Park Ji-sung said, “I don’t know which team will be interested in Cho Kyu-sung, but if Celtic offers it again, I’ll welcome it.” 카지노사이트
