After getting his first taste of the European stage, Oh Hyun-gyu (Celtic) has returned home.
Oh returned home via Incheon International Airport on May 5. “I’m happier to be back with the treble,” he told reporters upon his return, adding, “Actually, I didn’t build this from scratch. I’m happy to have won the title, but next season I will definitely try to contribute from the beginning.”
Oh joined Celtic in the winter transfer window in January. Although he didn’t play a full season, he was part of the team’s League Cup, regular season, and Scottish Cup triumphs (Domestic Treble) in his first season.
Oh’s individual form was also solid, with six goals in the regular season and one in the Scottish Cup, totaling seven goals in 20 games. 스포츠토토
“Going out (to Celtic) this winter, I felt I left a lot to be desired, and I’ll use (the experience) as a springboard to do better next season,” Oh said, adding, “I didn’t show what I’m capable of.”
Among Oh’s teammates is another Asian player. Japanese striker Kyogoda Furuhashi is the league’s top scorer (23 goals). “I learn a lot from him (Furuhashi) every time we train,” Oh said. His movement is very good, and his finishing is excellent. I learned a lot from him.”
Celtic will compete in the UEFA Champions League next season. Having tasted victory in his first season, Oh is ready for the bigger stage. “I want to play against as strong an opponent as possible. I want to play against a world-class club, and I want to test myself against their players,” he said. When we asked him who he would like to meet, he mentioned Real Madrid, a prestigious club in Spanish La Liga. Real Madrid won the Champions League last year for the club’s 14th title.
