Hwang Eui-jo (30)’s trip to Olympiacos was poisonous.
Hwang Eui-jo was active on the Asian stage before moving to Girondins Bordeaux in Ligue 1, France, in the summer of 2019. It was the European stage he wanted, and many applause followed his player’s challenge.
And he continued his tremendous performance. When his team struggled in the mid-lower ranks, Hwang Ui-jo did his part, showing off his sharp toes. He was responsible for the front line with 6 goals and 2 assists in the 2019-20 season, 12 goals and 2 assists in the 2020-21 season, and 11 goals and 2 assists in the 2021-22 season.
Hwang Eui-jo’s team, Bordeaux, was relegated to the second division as it finished bottom in the 2021-22 season. As a result, the departure of key players continued, and rumors of Hwang Ui-jo’s transfer also surfaced. Many clubs sent love calls to Hwang Eui-jo, and the league clubs actively stepped forward, and several English Premier League (EPL) clubs showed interest.
Hwang Eui-jo was only in the EPL. As a result, time was delayed in the process of waiting for proposals from EPL clubs. In the meantime, Hwang Ui-jo played two games in the second division for Bordeaux. And at the end of August, the transfer to Nottingham, an EPL promote d team, was completed, and the loan transfer to Olympiacos in Greece was confirmed immediately. 메이저사이트
The Greek League loan transfer at the age of 30 was somewhat questionable. Still, Hwang Ui-jo accepted the adventure to step on the EPL stage later. But it became poison. Hwang Ui-jo had a hard time competing for the starting position at Olympiacos. Then, since mid-October, he has been completely removed from the league roster. He hadn’t digested much time before that either.
This also affected his national team. Hwang Ui-jo, who was a fixture, became a backup resource at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. After the World Cup, he went back to Olympiacos, but his position was uneasy.
Hwang Eui-jo is expected to leave Olympiacos soon. European transfer market expert Fabricio Romano said on the 12th (Korean time), “Minnesota of MLS (Major League Soccer) made an official offer to Hwang Eui-jo, who will be terminated from Olympiacos. And LAFC, Portland, Chicago, Vancouver (MLS above), FC Seoul (K-League) and Vissel Kobe (J-League) are showing interest.”
If the loan contract with Olympiacos ends, the rest of the season can no longer play in Europe. According to FIFA rules, a footballer can register with three teams during one season. Among them, only two teams from the same federation can compete. Hwang Ui-jo has already played for Bordeaux and Olympiacos in the European Football Association (UEFA), so he cannot play for Nottingham or any other European team.
As a result, he is being linked with American and Asian teams. Hwang Eui-jo chose to go to Olympiacos after Nottingham with an ambitious plan, but he met a disappointing result.
