Baek Seung-ho joined Birmingham City in a surprise move.

The English Football League Championship (EFL Championship, Second Division) Birmingham officially announced on its website on the 30th (Korea time), “I am happy to recruit Baek Seung-ho, who had been receiving love calls from various teams in England and Europe. The contract period is June 2026.”

Baek said, “I’m really happy and looking forward to being a part of Birmingham. I can’t wait to start. One of my dreams since I started watching soccer as a child was to play soccer in England. I was really happy to hear that Birmingham was interested in me. I’ve known the team since I was young, and after meeting the manager, I decided to move.”

The first official interview was held with the club. Baek told various stories ranging from his career so far to his experience at the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar.

“I learned a lot about technical skills and how to move around in Spain (Barcelona, Girona). I also learned how to get closer to my teammates and become one with the team. Germany (Darmstadt) was a little more physical. But I learned a lot in both Spain and Germany. It was a great experience,” Baek said. “It was like a great experience (to participate in the World Cup). As a player, I dream about a World Cup. It is the best experience that I can gain as a player.”

Lastly, “Coach Tony Mowbray talked about my style, how to use it on the field, and my plans for the future, and everything was great. I have experienced various stages, but the most important thing for me is my relationship with the coach. I was very comfortable talking with Mowbray and it motivated me to come to Birmingham. That’s the biggest reason.”

Birmingham, where Baek Seung-ho joined, has bowed its head this season, plummeting from top to bottom with Wayne Rooney. Rooney has been on the receiving end of his contract, and is rebounding little by little under the direction of fireman Mowbray. Baek Seung-ho, who was hired during the winter transfer market, is giving a boost.
