“All Korean soccer players want to go to Europe at least once.” Jeon Byeong-kwan, 22, a rising star of Jeonbuk Hyundai, expressed his strong ambition. Since his debut in Daejeon in 2021, he moved to Jeonbuk ahead of the 2024 season. He has achieved rapid growth and became a starting member of the team. His brilliant goal-scoring ability reminds me of Son Heung-min (Tottenham). Jeon said, “I dreamed of watching Son Heung-min,” expressing his desire to play in the ‘big water’ someday.

Despite its worst start this year, the team has discovered valuable treasure called Jeon Byeong-gwan. Jeonbuk has faced a flurry of negative developments since the beginning of the season, including its replacement as a coach and collapse of its defense. It is ranking 11th as of the 13th round of the “Hana Bank K League 1 2024.” Jeon Byeong-gwan, who unleashed his potential, is a great help. Jeon scored four goals to rank No. 1 in his team’s score. He scored twice the number of goals he scored last year. Jeon had two goals and three assists in 23 matches in Daejeon in 2023. He played 835 minutes in 11 matches this year. He is a well-established striker.

Jeon also showed off his presence in the match against Gwangju on April 19. He scored two goals with two shots. Both times, he scored the farthest goal from the goalkeeper with his simple right-footed curls. Jeonbuk beat the goalkeeper 3-0. It also escaped from the bottom by breaking its chain of three consecutive losses. Jeon was unusual from the first goal of the season. In the eighth round match against FC Seoul on April 20, he blasted an overhead kick reminiscent of Cristiano Ronaldo. Jeonbuk won the match 3-2. Even Seoul coach Kim Ki-dong smirked at the time, saying, “I was hit by a wonderful goal that will come out only once a year.” It was named the best goal of April by the Korea Professional Football Association.

However, Jeon was not interested in personal joy. “I have great hope that our team will win. Now, I hope that we can win each game and quickly advance to the top ranks. I don’t care about personal records. I am worried about how I can help my team.” Jeonbuk, which was considered a favorite to win the championship, is at the bottom of the list even after playing one-third of this season. Of course, there are still many matches to be played. The point gap with fifth-ranked Gangwon is only five points. “I hope that our players can advance further with this victory. 메이저사이트 I have no doubt about each other’s skills,” Jeon said.

He was not satisfied even though he created many amazing goal scenes. “I feel good that I am improving. Still, I have to work harder. All Korean soccer players want to go to Europe at least once. I have had a big dream watching older players like Son Heung-min. I also want to perform in Europe like that and show good performances. If I have the chance, I want to improve my skills and play there. First of all, I have to work hard every day to improve myself.” Bae Jun-ho (21), who had previously been a teammate of Daejeon Hana Citizen, joined Stoke City of the British Championship (part 2) last year. In his first year in Europe, Bae established himself as a key player of his team. Jeon said, “I already knew that he is a really good player. He is still improving his performance. He often calls me that I look so cool. I still feel that he is really good these days. I can feel that he is still doing well while watching games. I can learn and support him,” he said, looking forward to joining the big league side by side someday.
