Will Oh Hyeon-kyu become the third Korean player to play for Scotland’s prestigious Celtic, following Ki Sung-yueng and Cha Du-ri?
England’s ‘Football Scotland’ recently reported that Hyun-kyu Oh would undergo a medical test before signing a contract with Celtic. Following the recent report by ‘Sky Sports’, even a local article appeared, raising the possibility. The Suwon side also explained that there was no decision made, but that it was under review, so it is expected that all we need to do is find an agreement.
Oh Hyun-gyu is a promising player that Korea expects. He took the professional stage in Suwon in 2019. He quickly went back to Gimcheon as a military enlistment and solved the obstacles for Korean players to go abroad. Even after returning to his original team, his performance continued. He played an active role as Suwon’s main player and added strength to the front line of his parent team. In particular, in the second leg of the promotion playoff against FC Anyang in the K-League 2 last season, he scored the winning goal, highlighting his youth value.
He also experienced the World Cup. Recognized for his strong point of boldness, he also participated as the 27th member of the 슬롯사이트 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, which ended last year. Although not an official member, he grew up watching the big stage of the World Cup up close.
Celtic recognized the value of a promising player. Celtic is not only Scotland but also Europe’s representative. In the past, Cha Doo-ri and Ki Sung-yong excelled, and domestic soccer fans are also familiar with it. However, there was no connection with Koreans after the two players. There were many links, but most of them were ‘seol’. Recently, Cho Kyu-seong (25, Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors) is a representative example.
It’s different this time. If only a few issues are well organized, a Korean player is expected to play for Celtic for the first time in about 10 years since the early 2010s.
