Yang Hyeon-jun (21, Gangwon FC), who returned to the ground after three weeks, focused exclusively on the ‘team’. His idea is that if you lead Gangwon’s rebound, the Taegeuk mark will naturally follow.
On the 2nd, Yang Hyun-jun played as a substitute in the 36th minute of the 5th round away match against Suwon Samsung in the K-League 2023, wearing a black face protection mask and walking the pitch. It was his first match after returning from injury, but he did not flinch. He threw himself boldly to score, such as attempting a diving header, but could not break the tight balance at 1-1. In the end, Gangwon, who won a draw, postponed the first win of the season to the next.
Yang Hyun-joon, who faced the reporters after the game, said, “I’m sorry to my teammates. I had two 1-on-1 chances, but I was very disappointed because I couldn’t solve it.”
Yang Hyeon-joon, who has returned, has an urgent need to improve his physical condition. That’s because leading the team’s rebound is his top priority. After the opening, Gangwon fell into a swamp without a win in 5 games (3 draws, 2 losses). Only Jeju United and Suwon Samsung, who won 2 draws and 3 losses side by side, are under Gangwon. Gangwon is the team with the least score (three goals), along with Jeju and Suwon FC, among the 12 K-League 1 teams. This is why I put my hopes on Yang Hyun-joon’s toes.
For Yang Hyeon-jun himself, this season’s performance is also important. The Hangzhou Asian Games and the 2024 Paris Olympic qualifiers will be held in September. Hwang Sun-Hong U-23 (under 23) soccer team coach has to stand out in the league to be called.
Coach Hwang Seon-hong sees Yang Hyun-joon as a key member of the Olympic team (U-22). However, Yang Hyeon-joon suffered a fractured nose bone in Hwang Seon-hong-ho, who was called during the A match this March. The Olympic team, which left for Doha, Qatar without Yang Hyun-jun, won the Doha Cup, a friendly competition. 메이저사이트
Yang Hyun-joon said, “Of course I wanted to go, but I was really disappointed because my nose and ankles were in bad condition. If I went and helped (the team), I would have grown and learned. I believe that coach Hwang Seon-hong will call you when you show a good image in the team and take a picture of your eyes. I will focus more on the team.”
Competitiveness enhancement is also essential. The Asian Games national team (U-24) has outstanding competitors such as Song Min-gyu (Jeonbuk Hyundai) and Eom Won-sang (Ulsan Hyundai). The same goes for the Olympic team. There are Um Ji-seong (Gwangju FC) and Jung Sang-bin (Minnesota United).
Director Choi Yong-soo said, “Yang Hyun-joon needs to develop his finishing ability in order to grow.” Yang Hyeon-jun also said, “The coach said that if he couldn’t finish, he would only be an ordinary player. He seems to have been right 100 times,” he said. He has to work harder,” he said.
