American professional football (MLS) is being discussed as the next destination for national soccer striker Hwang Eui-jo (31, Olympiacos), who is in slump.
Hwang Eui-jo, who transferred from Bordeaux (France) to Nottingham Forest (England) in August last year, was immediately leased to Olympiacos with the same owner for the 2022-2023 season.
However, in Greece, Hwang Ui-jo is experiencing the worst slump.
In a total of 12 official matches this season, including 카지노 5 regular league matches and 6 matches in the UEFA Europa League, there were no goals and only one assist.
As the opportunity to participate in the team decreased, the performance also declined, and in the last World Cup in Qatar, he was pushed by Cho Kyu-seong (Jeonbuk) and was reduced to a bench resource.
On the 12th, he appeared as a substitute in the 2022-2023 Greek Cup round of 16 second leg away game (2-2 draw) against Atromitos for the first time since the World Cup, but failed to raise an attack point.
It has been about two months since he started playing for Olympiacos.
The prevailing expectation is that Hwang Ui-jo will leave the team in the transfer market this winter as he virtually loses his place.
Fabrizio Romano, an Italian who is proficient in the European football transfer market, said on his social network service (SNS) on the 13th that “MLS’s Minnesota United has officially proposed a recruitment to Nottingham, Hwang Eui-jo’s original team.”
“The lease agreement with Olympiacos is ending,” he added.
Minnesota recently showed interest in signing Cho Kyu-sung, a World Cup star in Qatar. It seems that the intention is to change direction to Hwang Ui-jo if the recruitment of Cho Kyu-seong, who is focusing on European transfers such as Celtic (Scotland) and Mainz (Germany), fails.
The reason why Hwang Eui-jo is pursuing a trip to the United States rather than another European club is because of FIFA rules.
According to FIFA’s regulations on player transfers, a player can register with up to three clubs during a season, and can play in official matches with only two clubs during this period.
Hwang Eui-jo has already played for Bordeaux and Olympiacos, so he cannot play in European leagues.
There are leagues where this rule does not apply. It is the United States that conducts a spring festival (from spring to autumn) that does not overlap with Europe, which operates as a Chunchun festival (from fall to the following spring).
Like the United States, Korea and Japan, which are Spring and Autumn festivals, are also places where Hwang Ui-jo can compete.
Romano said, “FC Seoul (Korea), Vissel Kobe (Japan), LAFC, Portland Timbers, Chicago Fire (above the United States), and Vancouver Whitecaps (Canada) are also interested in Hwang Ui-jo.”
However, professional football K-League 1 Seoul has denied the rumor of signing Hwang Eui-jo.
It is known that Hwang Eui-jo also wants to continue living abroad rather than returning to Korea.
