Should I go to Italy after getting scolded by SON…”I’m getting interested in transferring to a rental”

Italian media Sky Sports Italia reported on the 9th (Korea Standard Time) that Fiorentina is interested in recruiting Brian Hill (22, Tottenham Hotspur). Hill’s current contract will expire in 2026, and his market value is set at 16 million euros (about W23 billion). Fiorentina reportedly prefers to rent Hill. 메이저 토토사이트

Hill left Sevilla to join Tottenham in 2021. He uses his fast feet and colorful dribbles to sway the sides, and he made the Spanish national team quickly at a young age. Realizing Hill’s potential, Tottenham successfully recruited him from Sevilla. However, he has not seen many opportunities since joining the team. His weak physical conditions have become his biggest problem. The Premier League is a league known for rough physical fights. Thanks to him, Hill, who has had weak physical conditions, failed to adapt to the league.

After all, he frequently went on loan after joining Tottenham. During the 2021-22 season, he left for Valencia on loan, and during the 2022-23 season, he left for Sevilla. And although he returned to Tottenham ahead of this season, he is continuing a difficult season. He played in nine matches in all of the tournaments, but failed to score a single offensive point.

In addition, Son was seen scolding him during the match against Manchester City on April 4. Hill grabbed the ball at the 26th minute of the first half when the two teams were facing 1-1. However, the chance fell through due to Hill’s belated pass timing, and Son expressed his anger at Hill with an angry gesture. As such, he seemed to lose confidence every time he played in the game. Naturally, his position at Tottenham has narrowed.


“I thought youth were playing in adult games” …Contedo and Postecoglou all turn away

Sky Sports Italy reported on the 8th (Korea Standard Time) that Fiorentina is interested in recruiting Hill.

“As Hill’s contract remains two and a half years away, and his market value is around 16 million euros (about 23 billion won), Fiorentina will be interested in signing a lease,” he added.

Hill, who played for Sevilla, joined Tottenham Hotspur in the 2021-22 season. He was then forced to switch teams through a swap deal with Erik Lamela. The deal cost £21.6 million (W36.2 billion). They agreed to a five-year contract period. 슬롯사이트 추천

Tottenham was fascinated by Hill’s potential. With his excellent speed and personal skills that can sway more than one defender, Tottenham is considered a resource that will take responsibility for Tottenham’s future.

However, he failed to display remarkable performance. He played in 20 games in the first season, but most of them were substituted. As a result, he moved to Valencia for the winter transfer market.

It was similar in the following year. He played in only four Premier League matches. He was not a big part of the team. He is set to move to Sevilla once again.

He played a significant role in Sevilla. He had two goals and two assists in 17 La Liga matches, with 10 starting matches. He displayed robust performances amid high expectations for the 2023-24 season.

Hill, who left the club on loan for two seasons under Antonio Conte, started the season under Enzi Postecoglou. He could not play in the beginning of the season. It was due to injury. However, he naturally began to get opportunities as more and more injuries were added to his team along with his return from injury.

However, he still lacks performance in this season. He played in a total of nine matches, and only started in two matches. He expressed regret over his deployment of offense and defense, as he displayed unstable ball touch and made pass mistakes.

It seems that Hill has not yet adapted to the physical Premier League. In the meantime, it is rumored that Hill has developed his strength and physical fighting ability to adapt to the Premier League. Nevertheless, Hill’s weaknesses have not yet been erased.

“The match between Manchester City and Tottenham was a match of strength,” Jamie Carragher, a commentator on British media Sky Sports, said after the 14th round match against Manchester City. “That’s why Tottenham put Hoivier in place of Hill in the second half,” he said. “Hill looked like a boy who played in an adult’s game.”

Tottenham brought in Timo Werner. They succeeded in reinforcing the offense. Injured people are also expected to return in the second half. Hill’s position, which is not already significant in the team, is expected to narrow further. There is a possibility that he will leave the loan again this time.


It’s been 27 years since we broke up…What Nike told Tiger Woods was

“Luckily, I began working with the world’s most iconic brand 27 years ago,” Woods posted a photo of himself with the founder of Nike, Phil Knights, on his X account on Wednesday (local time). The days that follow are filled with so many amazing moments and memories that if you start listing them one by one, it will never end. There must be another step.”

Along with a photo of Woods wearing a red Nike t-shirt on his official Instagram account, Nike wrote, “Tiger, what a round it was. You fought against your competitors, stereotypes, customs, old ways of thinking. You challenged the whole system of golf. You challenged us. Most of all, you challenged yourself. We are grateful for all those challenges.” Local people say that Nike has naturally come to say goodbye as it curtailed its golfing business. 메이저사이트

Woods had a close relationship with Nike since 1996, when he first appeared on the professional stage. He began his relationship with Nike for five years with a whopping 40 million U.S. dollars and insisted on Nike products for 27 years, not only clothes and shoes but also golf clubs and balls.

Woods had 15 wins at major competitions with Nike. Wearing a red shirt, black pants, and a black cap with a clear Nike logo, Woods is enjoying the championship as a symbol of American golf in the 2000s. As a result, Nike’s Tiger Woods Collection products with logos modeled after Woods’ first and last names T and W have also been sold out.

In 2009, while other companies ended their advertising contracts with Woods due to Tiger Woods’ affair scandal, Nike alone continued to sign with Woods. After Nike withdrew from the golf equipment business in 2016, Woods changed clubs and balls to other brands, but showed off his friendship by continuing to wear Nike’s clothes and shoes.

After Woods and Nike’s 10-year contract ended in December last year despite their long relationship with each other, there was no news of renewal of their contract. In fact, after being injured in a car accident in 2021, Woods wore golf shoes other than Nike at the competition. Woods was also seen wearing golf shoes from a different brand at the PNC Championship, a family competition held in Orlando on December 16 last year.


The lowest salary in the ‘Great Reversal of Baseball Life’ → LG’s highest annual salary increase rate, hit a whopping ‘174%’…Now he’s a confident closing pitcher for the winning team

It was a great year for baseball. Ko Woo-suk (26, San Diego Padres), who once played as the closing pitcher for his team, has now left for the Major League. Yoo Young-chan (27), who is now in his second year as a professional golfer, will be responsible for the team’s back door to the 2024 season. 안전 토토사이트

Yoo Young-chan, a graduate of Deoksung Elementary School (Ansan Little), Bae Myung-joong, Bae Myung-go, and Konkuk University, was nominated by the LG Twins in the 2020 rookie draft, ranked 43rd overall in the second and fifth rounds. Yoo Young-chan, who failed to make his debut in the first division, was ordered to cancel his call-up in 2022 after starting his mandatory military service as a social service worker in 2020.

And he signed an official contract with the LG Twins in 2023. His annual salary was 31 million won (31,000 U.S. dollars), which is 1 million won more than the minimum annual salary of 30 million won. He impressed Yeom Kyung-yeop, the coach of the team, since the spring camp. Then, he made his debut in the first division of the team as he dreamed of playing in the opening game of the regular season.

Early in the 2023 season, LG’s former must-winner Ko Woo-seok briefly left the team due to a shoulder injury, while Jung Woo-young and Lee Jung-yong also looked shaky. However, the “Plan B” that Yeom had prepared for the spring camp shone. Ham Deok-ju, Park Myung-geun, and Yoo Young-chan were the main characters.

In the end, Yoo took the mound as relief pitcher in 67 games during the 2023 season, recording six wins, three losses, one save, 12 holds, and an ERA of 3.44. During 68 innings, he had 55 hits (four homers), 40 walks, and seven physical, 55 strikeouts, and 27 runs (26 earned). Among LG pitchers, he played in the most games after Kim Jin-seong (80 games).

With Go Woo-suk leaving for the San Diego Padres, Yeom Kyung-yeop, the coach of the team, decided early on that he would finish the 2024 season with Yoo Young-chan. “I think (Yoo) Young-chan will do it to some extent. Of course, baseball doesn’t always work out as I thought. It is possible that the team will definitely face difficulties. However, we need to help the coaching staff, including myself, overcome the difficulties. That is why the most important thing is to make a year where Yoo Young-chan can establish himself as a save pitcher,” he said.

Regarding the reason behind Yoo Young-chan’s selection as the closing pitcher, he said, “I have fastball speed close to that of a power pitcher. I think I can speed up my speed by 1-2 kilometers compared to now. There is also a positive aspect that I can develop. If I improve my completeness in folk balls and sliders through this spring camp, I think I can make 30 saves in the first season. I also got good scores from the coaching staff in terms of mental performance, which is the part that a finishing pitcher needs the most. I have no experience as a closing pitcher, but I had great experience in the Korean Series last year. He said, “I am a pitcher with a very high probability of success as I settled as the closing pitcher in our team.”

Yoo Young-chan, who met with reporters after the LG Twins’ New Year’s greeting at Jamsil Stadium on the 5th, said, “People around me tell me I’m a closing pitcher, but I don’t think I’ve settled down yet. The opportunity has come, and I’m trying to do my best.”

In the Korean Series last year, Yoo contributed to his team’s victory by pitching well in three games as relief pitcher, and allowing three hits, one walk, six strikeouts and one run in six innings. “I did have experience in the Korean Series, but I did not go out as a closing pitcher. I think I will feel more responsible if I go out to the closing pitcher from now on. I tend to worry a lot before I go on the mound and feel a lot of pressure, but I get stronger when I go on the mound. I think I have to feel it while finishing the game,” Yoo said.

Yoo Young-chan has already signed an annual salary for the 2024 season. According to Star News, Yoo’s salary was confirmed to be 85 million won. This is a whopping 174 percent increase compared to the 2023 season when he received the lowest annual salary. This year, he became the star of the team’s highest annual salary increase rate throughout the LG Twins’ squad. “I will ask a lot of people around me. I will ask Kim Jin-sung for advice,” Yoo said. “I threw to survive last season. I want to come to my senses even more and become a pitcher who throws a ball in the direction that my team wins.”


Suwon Samsung appoints director Yeom Ki-hoon…”I’m going to re-enter K League 1 with my fans”

“We have officially announced the appointment of Yeom Ki-hoon as the ninth head coach,” the Suwon club said on Wednesday. Many were curious as to which leader would take charge of the shipwreck after Suwon suffered relegation from the second division early last month. However, Yeom was reportedly picked as the first candidate relatively early on. His appointment confirmed Wednesday.

Yeom’s contract period is two years until 2025. Suwon appointed Park Kyung-hoon, a soccer player who served as the Jeju and Seongnam coaches, the executive director of the Korea Football Association, and a technical advisor to Busan on Tuesday, the day before Yeom’s appointment, and expressed its commitment to making efforts to boost performance in order to be promoted to the top division.

He then suddenly took the helm of Suwon at the end of last year, overturning the expectation that “Suwon will be demoted early” and raising Yeom, who led the relegation fight until the final match, as the coach. “We decided to overcome the sense of defeat, present and implement new goals, promote the reform of the squad without confusion, prevent major key players from leaving, and implement the club’s long-term development plan,” the Suwon club said. “We appointed Yeom after carefully reviewing multiple candidates for the coach.”

He then explained, “The general manager Park selected Yeom as the right person to overcome the biggest crisis since his foundation and unite the team to return to the K League 1 again.” 실시간 바카라사이트

Suwon also said, “We are well aware of the team’s problems and expect Coach Yeom, who has the will and ability to solve them, to contribute to solving the problems at hand and normalizing the team,” adding, “We plan to complete the restructuring of the team as well as building a new division with the full power of appointing coaching and support staff.”

Yeom is a legendary player who made a milestone in K-League history beyond Suwon. Since making his professional debut in Jeonbuk in 2006, he instantly increased his stock price as he became the top contributor in Jeonbuk’s AFC Champions League (ACL) in the first year.

Yeom, who joined Suwon in 2010 after playing in Ulsan, spent 14 years in Suwon until last year, and received much applause from fans as a legend of Suwon in the 21st century. Yeom received several love calls in the Middle East during his active career, but he has established himself as a player with all the skills, loyalty and personality by staying in Suwon.

He has various records as a Suwon legend, including the most appearances (416 games), the most goals scored (71 goals), the most assists (121), the most served captain in Suwon (7 seasons) and the first four consecutive years (2014-2017). Yeom was playing as a playing coach last year, but after the replacement of two coaches in an unprecedented season, he became an acting coach on Sept. 26 with no experience as a full-time leader and became a firefighter in Suwon on the verge of relegation.

Although they failed to succeed in a single task of direct relegation, Japanese midfielder Kazuki pushed his opponent with offensive football to win a 3-2 come-from-behind victory in the 36th round of the Suwon Derby away match against Suwon FC.

He drew 0-0 at home against Gangwon in the 38th round, shedding tears of relegation, but recorded a very good winning rate with three wins, two draws and two losses in the seven games he took the helm. Yeom is currently in the process of licensing P-class in a foreign country, so he has no problem in taking office as an official coach

“I will run toward the goal of re-entry into the K League 1 with a heavy sense of responsibility. It is a difficult situation in many ways, but I will make a leap forward as long as our fans are there,” Yeom said. Suwon, which has been training under Yeom since the 4th, plans to hold the first off-season training in Bangkok, Thailand from the 12th to the 29th. Through the appointment of Yeom, Suwon will seek to harmonize with Park, a former soccer player.

Park used to be a side defender representing Korean soccer. Having joined Pohang Steelers (currently Pohang Steelers) in 1984 and started his professional career, Park played 134 games as a pro until 1992. Park was one of the stars representing the K-League in his early days. In 2013, when the K-League selected the best 11 players to celebrate the 30th anniversary of its foundation, he joined Ulsan coach Hong Myung-bo, current coach Choi Kang-hee and Suwon FC manager Choi Soon-ho.

He also played for the Korean national team. He played in a total of 93 A matches as a member of the Korean national team at two World Cups, the 1986 World Cup in Mexico, and the 1990 World Cup in Italy.

In the pro league, he assumed the baton of Jeju Island and Seongnam for six years and one year, respectively. However, he has no relationship with Suwon not only as a player but also as a leader, and this time he joined hands with Suwon for the first time as an administrator. On the other hand, Yeom marks the 15th year of his career in Suwon, and he is a legendary player in Suwon who is called “Real Blue.”

I wondered if there would be a good harmony between Park, who is new to Suwon, and Yeom, who has a lot of fine bones. Park and Yeom are starting anew, but there are also tasks. Suwon fans were opposed to the appointment of Yeom as the official head coach.

As Suwon’s basic paradigm has become so-called “Real Blue,” which selects Suwon native as the coach and runs the club around them, fans wanted a leader who could look at Suwon objectively from the outside rather than taking charge of Suwon, where the club legend, Yeom, is reeling, at an early age.

With the opening of the second part this year, Yeom and Suwon immediately had to calm down their fans from a good start. Recently, however, coaches Park Kun-ha and Lee Byung-geun have repeatedly left their clubs with blushing faces due to sluggish performance. Naturally, Suwon fans say they do not want to blush with another legend.

This winter, coach Kim Ki-dong moved from Pohang to FC Seoul, and coach Kim Do-kyun moved from Suwon FC to Seoul E-Land. In addition, Park Tae-ha, former chairman of the technical committee of the Korea Professional Football Federation, who led the team in Yanbian, China, was the former Pohang coach, Kim Hak-beom, former Olympic team coach in Jeju, Kim Do-kyun, who led Korean soccer to the semifinals at last year’s U-20 World Cup, became the Suwon FC coach, and Yeom became the official coach in the new season in 2024. Coach Park Dong-hyuk also moved from Asan in Chungnam to Gyeongnam FC in the same K-League 2, and Kim Hyun-seok took the helm of Asan in Chungnam as his successor.

Anyang manager Ryu Byung-hoon and Cheonan manager Kim Tae-hwan also joined the team. Jeonbuk coach Dan Petrescu, who took over during the last season, Lee Jung-hyo, who made Gwangju FC the elite of the Asian Football Confederation Champions League (ACLE) last year, Daegu manager Choi Won-kwon, the youngest one born in 1983, Jeong Jeong-yong, who overcame regret at Seoul E-Land to lead Gimcheon’s management to promotion, and Gangwon FC manager Yoon Jeong-hwan, who avoided relegation during the last season, are also facing fierce competition in the K-League for the second year.


It’s my first time going to Japan as a free agent and Ryu Hyun-jin…Training with Hanwha juniors remains the same, there is no rush

Ryu Hyun-jin moved to Okinawa, Japan, on the 8th. Leaving Korea, where the cold is raging in the middle of winter, he is speeding up preparations for the season under the mild climate of Okinawa, Japan’s southernmost region. Hanwha juniors will be with Ryu Hyun-jin again this time. Nam Ji-min and Kim Ki-joong joined Jang Min-jae, who played with Ryu Hyun-jin during the Hanwha era. On top of that, another Hanwha pitcher Lee Tae-yang will pair up with Lee Min-woo and meet Ryu Hyun-jin in Okinawa.

Ryu Hyun-jin, who first started off-season Okinawa camp with Jang Min-jae ahead of the 2016 season, moved to Okinawa in early January and spent the winter with Hanwha juniors, except for marriage, the COVID-19 pandemic, and injury rehabilitation.

Jang Min-jae, Kim Min-woo in 2017, Jang Min-jae, Lee Tae-yang in 2019, Jang Min-jae, and Jinyoung Kim in 2020 joined Ryu Hyun-jin at the Okinawa mini camp. They moved to Jeju Island between 2021 and 2022, when foreigners were restricted from entering Japan due to COVID-19. Jang Min-jae, Jinyoung Kim, and Kim Ki-tak were training members for Hanwha. Lee Tae-yang, then a member of SSG, also joined Ryu’s camp to prepare for the season. 안전한 파워볼사이트

Jang Min-jae, who joins Ryu as his training partner every winter, said, “It is not easy to provide financial support every year no matter how much money you have. I am always grateful to him.”

It is the first time in Ryu’s baseball career that his team has yet to decide which team he belongs to. Having entered the Major League with a six-year contract of 36 million U.S. dollars after posting posts in the 2012 season, Ryu has accepted the Dodgers’ offer of 17.9 million dollars annually after the 2018 season.

After the 2019 season, Ryu Hyun-jin, who came out as a free agent, completed his contract before the end of the year. On Dec. 28 (Korea Standard Time), he officially signed a four-year, $80 million contract with the Toronto Blue Jays and received special treatment. He welcomed the new year of 2020 as Toronto’s ace, but four years have passed since then.

Short-term contracts are expected to earn around 10 million U.S. dollars per year. Among the top 30 FA starters, Michael Waka (Kansas City Royals, two-year contracts worth 32 million dollars), Sean Manaea (New York Mets, two-year contracts worth 28 million dollars), Kenta Maeda (Detroit Tigers, two-year contracts worth 24 million dollars), Frankie Montas (Cincinnati Reds, 16 million dollars), Luis Severino (New York Mets, 13 million dollars), Kyle Gibson (St. Louis Cardinals, 13 million dollars), Lance Lynn (St. Louis, 11 million dollars per year), Wade Miley (Millywood Brewers, 8.5 million dollars), and Martin Perez (Pittsburgh Pirates, 8 million dollars) are expected to be treated similarly to Ryu.

The Mets, who had been keeping an eye on Ryu, took another left-hander Manaea, reducing their destination by one, but they still have five more weeks until the spring training begins in mid-February. The remaining top FA starters, including Blake Snell, Jordan Montgomery, and Imana Shota, have yet to decide their future. Better offers may come as time goes by. Scott Boras, the “super agent,” is also the type that drags negotiations into a long-term battle. Hanwha, its former team, which is expecting Ryu’s return, has not set a deadline, saying, “As long as I come, I’m happy.” Regardless of which offer comes in and the decision is made, there is no reason to hurry.


“Kang In, I’m running with you.” Mbappe directly denies going to Real, “I have a lot to do at PSG.”The transfer agreement for ‘33.7 billion per year’ is ‘fake news’

France’s “RMC Sport” reported on the 8th (Korea Standard Time) that “there have been numerous rumors about Mbappe’s transfer in recent days, but PSG is calming the situation down.” “The European winter transfer market has just begun and Mbappe, whose contract with PSG expires in June, can negotiate with any team. However, Mbappe had a busy weekend at PSG, including a hat-trick in the French Cup.”

The media quoted Mbappe’s close aide as saying, “Mbappe has not talked to other teams. There has been no discussion or agreement.” PSG wants to renew Mbappe’s contract, and it is said that Mbappe expects him to make a good decision. 토토사이트 추천

Recently, European media reported on Mbappe’s possible move to Real Madrid. Spanish newspaper Marca said, “Real and Liverpool are closely monitoring Mbappe’s decision. However, Mbappe’s decision may be a little late. We will make a final decision before Feb. 14 when the round of 16 best teams at the UEFA Champions League takes place.” “Mbappe does not want the transfer scandal to be repeated last summer. He will decide on the deadline whether to go to Real or stay at PSG.”

When rumors of a transfer surfaced, Mbappe personally expressed his opinion, drawing attention. After the last Super Cup final, Mbappe said in an interview with local French media, “It’s a season full of will. We still have a competition to win PSG.”

However, there is a possibility that Mbappe will be affected by the Mega Tone deal offered by Real. According to Marca, Real Madrid offered an annual salary of 26 million dollars and a down payment of 130 million euros, the highest in its team. The deal is similar to what Real offered Mbappe last summer.

Mbappe’s PSG contract runs until June. Mbappe is free to negotiate with other teams in the upcoming winter transfer window, according to the Bosman rule. Real Madrid is making efforts to recruit Mbappe as a free agent by taking advantage of this. Real Madrid general manager Jose Angel Sanchez is reportedly persuading Mbappe’s mother and agent Fiza Ramari.

Real’s interest in Mbappe started a long time ago. He sent love calls whenever the transfer window opened two years ago. Real, however, is moving more agile than ever because negotiations have repeatedly broken down and there has been a precedent of being stabbed in the back. Mbappe and Real were close to completing the transfer two years ago, but Mbappe suddenly changed his mind at the end of the negotiations and announced that they would stay at PSG. At the time, Real and Spanish fans criticized Mbappe as a “traitor.”

Mbappe, who joined PSG in 2017, has been performing the best in every season. He is leading the league with 18 goals (two assists) this season as well. He also scored three goals in the UCL group league, leading his team to the round of 16. He led his team to a landslide 9-0 victory by scoring a hat trick in an away match against Höbel (part 6) in the third round of the 2023-2024 Coupe de France. Mbappe, who shook the net in the 16th minute of the first half, and the 45th minute and the 3rd minute of the second half, surprised his fans by receiving 10 points, which is a rare score. The Sopascore, a soccer statistics medium, gave Mbappe a score of 10, and Footmob, another statistics medium, also scored 9.8 points. Mbappe has been spearheading PSG’s offense by attempting 11 shootings in addition to his hat trick. He has played 284 games for PSG so far, with 237 goals and 101 assists. He is emerging as one of the next generation of soccer emperors after Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

He was recently selected as the “World Team 2023” by IFFHS, which is known as the International Federation of Football History Statistics, and boasted his prowess as the world’s best striker. In the 3-4-3 formation, Mbappe was named as the striker on the left side. He also included world class players such as Kevin De Bruyne, Hoobeng Diaz, Rodri and Ederson, Erling Holland, Lionel Messi, and Jude Bellingham.

Mbappe signed a basic two-year plus one-year contract with PSG in 2022. Mbappe can decide the option for a one-year extension himself, but last summer, Mbappe sent a letter to PSG saying he would not invoke the option, sparking a conflict. Mbappe was full of complaints against PSG at the time. When PSG only reached the quarterfinals of the UEFA Champions League, he became angry at the barrage of criticism from players. According to the BBC, Mbappe said, “PSG is a divided team. Why blame players for failing to qualify for the round of 16 at the UEFA Champions League last season? Players are not in charge of running a club. Recruitment of players and strengthening of players’ capacity are the responsibility of the club.”


Director Hong Myung-bo “Captain Son Heung-min is reliable…”The players’ capabilities and atmosphere are all the best.”

Ulsan HD coach Hong Myung-bo, who led Korea to advance to the semifinals for the first time at the 2002 FIFA World Cup, stressed “unity” for his juniors who are trying to win the Asian Cup of the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) for the first time in 64 years. If they unite together through the motivation of winning the championship, good results will be produced.” 카지노사이트 순위

Coach Hong Myung-bo, who served as a leader both inside and outside the stadium as captain during the 2002 World Cup Korea-Japan, made a brilliant achievement for Korean soccer to advance to the semifinals for the first time in its history. At the time, Hong wrote a new history of Korean soccer by uniting the team with strong charisma.

Coach Hong had a splendid career including the World Cup, but the Asian Cup remains a painful memory for him as well. Coach Hong Myung-bo, who participated in the Asian Cup for the first time through the 1996 United Arab Emirates (UAE), was eliminated after losing 2-6 to Iran in the quarterfinals. He then advanced to the semifinals at the 2000 Asian Cup in Lebanon, but lost to Saudi Arabia in the semifinals and finished the tournament in third place.

Coach Hong sincerely supports his juniors’ performance in the upcoming Qatar tournament, as he is also disappointed in the Asian Cup. In a recent interview with News 1, Hong said, “I’ve been proud that Korea is the strongest in Asia, but I don’t remember winning the Asian Cup for a long time,” adding, “It may be a burden to my juniors, but I hope they win this tournament.”

“I think the possibility of winning the championship seems high when you look at the squad and morale of the national team and the performance of each player currently playing in Europe. It’s a really good opportunity,” he said, adding, “If you put the pressure down and enjoy the competition, you’ll definitely get good results.”

Coach Hong Myung-bo emphasized “one team” as the most important factor to win the championship. “Unity is the most important thing. It is important for all players to have the same goal and unite as one team.”

During the 2002 Korea-Japan World Cup, head coach Hong Myung-bo set a goal by taking care of not only the main players but also the players who could not play, and eventually contributed greatly to making monumental results.

In order to become an original team, the role of the “captain” is important. Fortunately, the Klinsman team has an outstanding captain Son Heung-min (Tottenham Hotspur). Son has been wearing the captain’s armband for the Korean national team since 2018 and has been playing an excellent central role by also serving as the captain for his team, Tottenham.

Hong said, “As the Asian Cup is an important competition, the captain’s role can greatly influence other players. Son has been doing well enough so far. Just doing what he has done will be enough,” in expressing trust in his student body.

In addition, Coach Hong Myung-bo also expressed his expectations for the performance of Kim Min-jae (Bayern Munich), a “defensive junior” who stands tall as a world-class defender beyond Korea. “What is important in the tournament is defense,” Hong said. “Kim Min-jae is a leader and defender who will lead Korean soccer.” “(Kim Min-jae) has shown good performance in the national team and his team so far, and I hope he will grow further and become a recognized player through the Asian Cup.”

Meanwhile, Taegeuk Warriors, who are currently in Abu Dhabi, the United Arab Emirates, will enter Doha, Qatar, where they will play in a showdown. Korea will play its first group match against Bahrain on Saturday. Korea is aiming to win the Asian Cup title for the first time in 64 years since 1960.


“I had Son Heung-min and Kim Min-jae, but…” Betting firm names Japan as No. 1 odds of winning Cup, South Korea second

An overseas betting company pointed to its “forever rival” Japan as the No. 1 probability of winning the Qatar Asian Cup. According to the Japanese soccer media Football Zone on the 6th, the overseas betting media Legal Bet revealed the probability of winning the top six Qatar Asian Cup in 2023. 토토사이트 순위

Japan received 3.4 times the odds of winning the championship. Legal Bet said, “It’s not surprising to pick Japan as the No. 1 winner,” citing the fact that a number of players from major European leagues have been selected by the Japanese national team. Kaoru Mitoma (Brighton) and Takefusa Kubo (Real Sociedad) are injured, but the team is in good condition, introducing the fact that they are winning nine consecutive A matches. In betting, the lower the dividend rate, the higher the chance of winning the championship.

Korea ranked second with 5.5 times the number. While mentioning the existence of “high-level” players such as Son Heung-min (Tottenham Hotspur) and Kim Min-jae (Bayern Munich) who belong to big European clubs, Korea is expected to lose to Japan. Korea was followed by Australia (7.5 times), the Middle East traditional powerhouse (7.5 times), Saudi Arabia (eight times), and Qatar (nine times), the defending champion and host. After all, betting companies are also predicting a two-way race between Japan and Korea.

Korea, led by coach Jurgen Klinsmann, aims to win its third championship in 64 years since the 1960 event. Team Korea, which won 1-0 in the last friendly match against Iraq in Abu Dhabi, the United Arab Emirates on Wednesday, will enter Qatar on Wednesday, the land of opportunity.

Japan, which holds the record for the most wins in its career, is aiming for its fifth career championship in 13 years since 2011. If Korea and Japan rank first in each group league, they will not meet until the final. “We hope to meet Japan in the final,” said Klinsmann, who admitted in August that Japan is ahead of Korea in terms of power performance. Japanese coach Hajime Moriyasu also picked Korea as one of his rivals for the championship. The Asian Cup, in which 24 countries participate, will open on Feb. 12 and run until Feb. 10.


“Waiting” Scott Boras time has come, Ryu Hyun-jin to weigh in between Baltimore and Boston

Ryu Hyun-jin’s trip to the New York Mets is over. The Mets have recruited Sean Manaea. We have plenty of time. Who are the next candidates? Baltimore Orioles and Boston Red Sox are mentioned. Some predict the possibility of returning to the KBO, but the probability is low. Scott Boras, Ryu’s agent, is still weighing the team that Ryu will go to.

The New York Mets, who were mentioned as a likely destination for Ryu Hyun-jin, a free agent in the Major League Baseball (MLB), have recruited left-handed pitcher Sean Manaea. reported on the 7th (Korea Standard Time) that “The New York Mets have signed a contract with Manaea.” The contract is a two-year total of $28 million (about 36.8 billion won), and includes an “opt-out” clause after the 2024 season.

Ryu entered the Major League as a member of the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2013. Until last year, he had 78 wins and 48 losses with an ERA of 3.27. Elbow surgery is considered one of his weaknesses. Still, he is considered attractive because he has outstanding ball control and is a veteran. Ryu is still worth 10 million U.S. dollars a year. Players who were recently mentioned as candidates for the fifth try have successfully signed contracts worth more than 10 million dollars.

The Baltimore Orioles are still searching for starting pitchers as 2024 approaches, the U.S. media outlet Baltimore Baseball said on Monday. Lucas Giolito and Frankie Montas, who might have been interested in the Baltimore Orioles, are said to have found new destinations. “Still, the FA market includes right-handed Marcus Stroman, Michael Lorenzen, and left-handed pitcher Ryu Hyun-jin. They are also suitable pitchers for the Baltimore team’s budget,” the media said.

The Boston Red Sox need starting pitchers. Sports Illustrated said on Monday that the Boston Red Sox can actually advance to the playoffs in 2024 if they hire one or two starting pitchers as free agents. “The Red Sox’s offense was impressive last year, but they were eliminated from the playoff race due to injuries and inconsistent rotation.”

The Red Sox are looking for top-notch pitchers in order to improve their rotation. They need to strengthen the latter part of the rotation. “One of the starting pitchers mentioned as strong candidates for the Red Sox is Ryu Hyun-jin, a left-handed pitcher who played for the Los Angeles Dodgers and Toronto Blue Jays,” said Alex Speier of the Boston Globe.

Recently, the Boston Red Sox signed a contract with Giolito. MLBcom said on Thursday that the Boston Red Sox had agreed to a two-year deal with right-hander Lucas Giolito for 38.5 million U.S. dollars. The deal was made with the intention of starting the game. It is also expected that Ryu will be added as the sixth starter. The team desperately needs to reinforce its backdoor policy.

Scott Boras is a master of negotiations. Scott Boras also led the negotiations for the San Francisco Giants (six years totaling 113 million U.S. dollars). Just as Lee said his legs were relaxed after hearing the offer of 100 million dollars, he brings more money than expected to the players. Boras praised Lee, saying it was “a reward for playing baseball from an early age.” 온라인카지노

In November last year, Scott Boras told Korean reporters that Ryu will throw balls in the U.S., not in Korea. “Big league teams are interested in Ryu. We are waiting for him,” adding that he could stay in the Major League. Scott Boras time has come.
