Racism controversy: Park Yong-woo, Lee Myung-joo transfer to Al Ain in UAE

Reporter Park Dae-ro = Park Yong-woo (Ulsan Hyundai), who was involved in a racism controversy, is moving to the United Arab Emirates League. He will join Al Ain, the same team where Lee Myung-joo (Incheon United) played.

Al Ain officially announced the signing of Park Yong-woo on Instagram on July 17 (KST).

Al Ain said that Park had passed a physical and that a final agreement had been reached. Park is expected to join the team’s training camp in Spain on the 18th.

“We would like to thank Ulsan for their professionalism during the negotiation process and look forward to a close and long-lasting relationship,” Al Ain said.

Al Ain is a prestigious club that has won 14 domestic league titles. Al Ain won the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Champions League in 2003. The club was also runner-up in the 2018 FIFA Club World Cup.온라인바카라

Lee Myung-joo, who currently plays for Incheon, was a starter for Al Ain from 2014 to 2017.

Park Yong-woo, born in 1993, has played exclusively in South Korea. He made his K League debut with FC Seoul in 2015 before moving to Ulsan in 2017. The central midfielder has made 232 appearances in the K League, scoring eight goals and providing four assists.

Park earned his first international call-up last month against Peru and El Salvador. Park sparked a racism controversy last month when he compared his dark-skinned teammate Lee Myung-jae to Sasalak, a Thai left fullback who played for Jeonbuk Hyundai. After scoring the game-winning goal in a 1-0 away win over Gwangju FC in the K League 1 on Feb. 2, Park did not celebrate the goal but bowed his head to the crowd of Ulsan fans.
