Oh Hyeon-gyu (22), who left Suwon Samsung to join Celtic, was praised locally as a ‘perfect recruit’. It is evaluated that he has both strength and mobility enough to be differentiated from existing strikers, but it is an exceptional acclaim that came out immediately after playing in two games only as a replacement.
The Athletic of the UK said on the 2nd (Korean time), “In fact, in the winter transfer market, it is common to find it difficult to recruit properly.” The Scottish 먹튀검증 Premiership round 23 away match against Dundee United was highlighted.
The media said, “Oh Hyun-kyu faced the opponent’s defender in the penalty box at the time and received the pass with his center of gravity lowered. When the ball went to the side again, he regained possession of the ball through explosive acceleration.” “He shows a calm appearance even in a wide area. “he emphasized. He praised the scene in which he competed fiercely with his opponent for the ball and, although he was an attacker, moved widely to the side and actively competed for the ball.
At the same time, he emphasized that his style was clearly differentiated from existing strikers such as Furuhashi Kyogo and Yorgos Zaku Makis. It is expected that he will provide Celtic with a different option than the other two forwards. It is also the background where Celtic was praised as a ‘perfect recruitment’.
The Athletic said, “Oh Hyun-kyu faced the opposing defender from the side and eventually got a throw-in. This was a scene that was difficult to see for (existing strikers) Furuhashi or Zakumakis.” It can be seen that it is somewhere between Plan A using Furuhashi and Plan B, Zakumakis.”
“Oh Hyun-gyu means that he fits well with Ange Postecoglu’s coaching tactics. As much as he can contribute to the team right now, he has the potential to develop further,” he said. “In the end, he helped Celtic win more titles. Afterwards, I will leave for a bigger club with considerable transfer fee profits.”
Oh Hyun-kyu, who accompanied the reserve team for the last World Cup in Qatar, entered Europe for the first time by joining Celtic on the 25th of last month. His transfer fee has not been disclosed, but it is estimated locally at 3 million euros (approximately 4.1 billion won). Starting with the initial offer of 1 million euros (approximately 1.4 billion won), Celtic repeatedly raised the transfer fee and obtained approval from the Suwon club. He, who made his first debut against Dundee last year, was put in as a substitute in the 24th round of the league against Livingston on the 2nd and is adapting to the local environment. This is why the local praise that came out in just two games is even more valuable.
