Local news is that Kim Young-kwon (34, Ulsan HD), the top star of Korean professional football, is seeking to recruit Taishan in Shandong Province in the Chinese Super League.
Chinese portal site Wang Yi (English: NetEase) said on its own sports content on Jan. 8, “There seems to be no chance for the Shanghai-Hai River. Shandong Taishan is likely to snatch a contract with Kim Young-kwon, the best player in the K League 1 last season.”
Shanghai Haigang is the winner of the 2023 Super League, while Shandong Taishan is the runner-up. Wang Yi added, “Jungz (44), head coach of the Korean national soccer team, also expressed his support for Kim Young-kwon’s return to the Chinese stage.”
Shanghai Haigang, the defending champion of Chinese professional football, wanted Kim Young-kwon last summer, but it didn’t come true. Wang Yi explained, “It is currently a financial situation where it is not easy to bring in a big shot until the captain Oskar (33, Brazil) leaves.”
The 2018 Chinese Super League’s best 11 Oscar is under contract through the 2024 season. His annual salary is reportedly 24 million U.S. dollars. “It is unrealistic that Kim Young-kwon is waiting for the Shanghai Haigang River. The right time has come for the upcoming transfer window to Taishan in Shandong Province,” Wang said.랭크카지노주소
Kim Young-kwon shone as a dream team of the ▲2013-2016 Chinese Super League Best 11 ▲2015 East Asian Football Confederation (EAFF) E-1 Champions League ▲2015 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Champions League.
Coach Jungz also worked with Kim Young-kwon at Guangzhou FC and was at his peak as a soccer player when he was selected as the ▲2012-2015 Chinese Super League Best 11 ▲ 2013 Yazer Footballer in Asia ▲ 2013-2015 Asian Champions League Dream Team.
Yazer Woo-jin, dubbed the “Ballon d’Or of Asia,” is an individual soccer award hosted by Chinese sports newspaper Titanzhou Bao, which ranks No. 1 in terms of number of copies sold. The award is selected through a vote of a panel of judges composed of multinational journalists.
Wang Yi said, “Shandong Taishan is still in very good condition as he is in his mid-30s this year. If he is recruited, he will be given 3 million euros (4.3 billion won), which is about three times his current salary.”
According to the Korea Professional Football Association’s public data, Kim Young-kwon received 1.53 billion won from Ulsan HD, the largest amount among Korean players in the 2023 K League 1 and 2. “As the Chinese Super League is already familiar, it is also an advantage to be able to adapt again smoothly,” Wang Yi said.
Shandong Taishan won the title, runner-up and runner-up title in the Chinese Super League for the recent three seasons. Choi Kang-hee (65), a former coach of the Korean national soccer team, has been leading the team since May last year.
