Recently, there have been reports that Baek Seung-ho is heading to Birmingham. “Birmingham World,” a British news outlet, reported on the 25th (Korea time) that despite high-jacking attempts by English championship (second division) rival Sunderland, Birmingham expects to complete the recruitment of Baek Seung-ho, a former member of the Korean national team, next week.”
“Coach Tony Mowbray has already hired Andre Dozel as a ball-playing midfielder. Baek has a slightly different style, but he seems to be another midfielder. His outstanding box-to-box abilities are well known, and he can carry the ball well in the midfield,” the British newspaper Birmingham Mail said.
He garnered great attention from an early age with his splendid name “a native of Barcelona youth.” Life in Europe was not very smooth. He continued to grow up in Barcelona B team and went through Girona. Later, he headed to Darmstadt, Germany, ahead of the 2019-20 season.
He continued his career by steadily competing for the starting lineup, but military service issues have hampered him. Baek Seung-ho, who joined Jeonbuk Hyundai in 2021, scored nine goals and six assists, contributing to lifting the K League and FA Cup championships that year.
He also displayed impressive performance at the Qatar World Cup. Having consistently been called up to the national team, he played as substitute in the second half against Brazil, which he met in the round of 16. He recovered a goal by playing a fantastic mid-range shot, his flagship skill, when the team was trailing 0-4.
Starting with the World Cup, Europe’s interest in Baek Seung-ho began to gather again. Selected as a wild card at the 2023 Hangzhou Asian Games, he led Korea to the championship as a captain. Having solved the military service problem, I was able to prepare for re-entry to Europe in earnest.
Mowbray, who was recently appointed to Birmingham, reportedly strongly wanted Baek. Mowbray is also famous for being Ji Han-pa. Having continued his career in the English league, he recruited Kim Doo-hyun from the K-League when he was in Albion, West Bromwich. He also taught Ki Sung-yueng at Celtic.
The Birmingham Mail also mentioned that Mowbray delivered positive stories about Korean players over the weekend, saying, “There were some Asian soccer players, including Ki Sung-yueng and Kim Doo-hyun. They are truly amazing people. If you ask them for something, they do well.”
