‘Bull’ Hwang Hee-chan returns… Both Wolverhampton and Klins Man-ho are ‘good news’
‘Bull’ Hwang Hee-chan (27, Wolverhampton) returns to the field. At the earliest, it is expected to play a comeback match in a month or so through a game this coming weekend. This is good news for both Wolverhampton and Klinsmann, ahead of the announcement of the first roster.
An official familiar with Hwang Hee-chan’s situation said on the 8th, “I know that the hamstring (rear thigh muscle) injury has almost recovered. If there are no big variables, it will be included in the entry for the 27th round away match between Newcastle United and the English Premier League (EPL) on the 13th (Korean time).”
Hwang Hee-chan complained of pain in the back of his right thigh during the game against Liverpool in the 22nd round of the EPL on the 5th of last month and was replaced. Wolverhampton coach Julen Lopetegi made official Hwang Hee-chan’s hamstring injury through a press conference, and predicted that it would take about 4 to 5 weeks for his return.
Hwang Hee-chan, who returned to Korea immediately after his injury and returned after receiving treatment, is said to be recovering quickly. Of course, considering the remaining time and recovery speed, the possibility of returning next week cannot be ruled out, but officials explain that Hwang Hee-chan’s return has entered a ‘countdown’ to the point of worrying about the timing of his return.
Hwang Hee-chan played mainly as a substitute in the beginning of this season, but in November, he became a main striker who crossed the front line and side. The fact that Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, a world-renowned master, recently mentioned his name directly, saying, “Wolverhampton can freely use Hwang Hee-chan as a starter or substitute,” is a glimpse of his importance in the team.
At the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, Hwang Hee-chan was on the rise with the winning goal against Portugal, which led Korea to the round of 16. He recorded an assist in the League Cup match against Gillingham, his first match after the World Cup, and drew an upward curve by scoring a thousand gold equalizers in Liverpool and the FA Cup. The injury suffered in the league match against Liverpool was more regretful, but fortunately, he recovered quickly and was on the verge of returning to the ground.
The news of Hwang Hee-chan’s imminent return is truly good news for Wolverhampton. This is because Hwang Hee-chan has been unable to find an offensive solution since he was injured, scoring just two goals in the last four league games. The fact that the composition of the attacking team is changing every game also means that they are unable to find a solution. Recently, striker Diego Costa has been injured and new bad news has been added. This is why the news of Hwang Hee-chan’s imminent return from Wolverhampton’s point of view is beyond welcome. mma 토토
The same goes for new coach Jurgen Klinsmann of the national soccer team, whose first roster is to be announced on the 13th. Coach Klinsman will soon announce the first-class roster to participate in two consecutive A matches against Colombia and Uruguay, which will be held this month. The last Qatar World Cup team list will be composed only to the extent of excluding injured players. If the recovery from injury was slow, coach Klinsman had no choice but to exclude Hwang Hee-chan from the national team plan, but as news of his imminent return was reported, the possibility of him accompanying him from the first roster increased.
