Suwon FC President Choi Soon-ho has expressed his discomfort with the transfer rumors of ‘Korean Messi’ Lee Seung-woo.
After the VIP premiere of ‘K League: The Universe,’ an exhibition on the 40th anniversary of the league organized by the Korean Football Association, Choi Soon-ho faced the press on the 21st and said, “It’s just the other team talking about it. It’s not polite behavior. This kind of thing should come out when there is a story about the club and the club, but as people who work together, it shouldn’t happen at all.”
This was in response to Lee’s transfer rumors.
Suwon FC parted ways with head coach Kim Do-gyun after narrowly staying up this season. Kim parted ways with Suwon FC to join the K League 2 club Seoul Eland, and the club has since been linked to the Suwon FC star Lee Seung-woo. The media has already reported that the club is very interested in the player, and a specific salary has been mentioned.
Choi Soon-ho said, “This can be a problem for players and coaches. The same goes for the club. How can you run a valuable professional league with people like that (leaking transfer rumors)?” “It’s not polite to talk about ‘how much the ransom is’ when there is no talk with the other club. These clubs should pay attention to this kind of thing,” he said strongly. 헤라카지노
Lee, who previously honed his skills with FC Barcelona’s youth team, has played for Hellas Verona (Italy), Sint-Truiden (Belgium), and Portimonense (Portugal) before donning the Suwon FC jersey for the 2022 season.
He has been Suwon’s ace for the past two seasons. In 2022, he scored 14 goals and provided three assists in 35 games in the K League 1, proving that he has made the perfect transition to the domestic stage. In 2023, he continued his success with 10 goals and three assists in 35 league appearances. He is currently being linked to several clubs, including Seoul Eland.
