Suwon Samsung striker Kim Joo-chan has been named the Lemona Young Player of the Month for the October-December K League. This is the second time he has won the award after winning it in July.

The Lemona Young Player of the Month Award was established in 2021 by the Korea Professional Football League (hereinafter referred to as the “League”) with the sponsorship of Kyungnam Pharmaceutical, and is given to the “Young Player” who has made the biggest impact in the K League 1 each month.

To be eligible for the award, a K League 1 player must be ▲ a Korean nationality, ▲ 23 years old or younger (born after 2000), and ▲ three years or younger (debuted after the 2021 season) from the year they made their first official K League appearance.

Players who fulfill the above three conditions and appear in more than half of their team’s total playing time in the month are eligible. The final winner will be determined through discussion and voting by the members of the Technical Study Group (TSG) under the Federation’s Technical Committee.

For the October-December K League Young Player Award, a total of six games from rounds 33 through 38 were evaluated. There were 10 players who met the requirements, including Kim Joo-chan, Jung Ho-yeon, Uhm Ji-sung, Heo Yul (Gwangju), Choi Woo-jin, and Park Seung-ho (Incheon). Of these, Kim received the most votes from TSG members and was selected as the winner. 무지개토토 주소
