Seol Young-woo, who won gold and returned home, said, “I only have a 5% stake in the AG championship, but my worth is 10 billion won!” Between humility and confidence
Seol Young-woo (24), who returned home with gold after winning the Asian Games gold medal, pledged to continue his performance in the future.
The Korean national soccer team, led by coach Jurgen Klinsmann, was summoned to the Paju National Team Training Center (NFC) on the 9th for two consecutive international matches in October. Korea will face Tunisia at Seoul World Cup Stadium on the 13th and then Vietnam at Suwon World Cup Stadium on the 17th.
This October’s national team roster (total of 24 players) included overseas players such as Son Heung-min, Kim Min-jae, and Hwang Hee-chan, as well as Asian Games gold medalists Seol Young-woo, Jung Woo-young, Lee Kang-in, and Hong Hyun-seok.토토사이트
Seol Young-woo, who finished entering Paju NFC on this day, stood in front of reporters with a smiling face. When asked if he brought his gold medal with him when he entered the hospital, he said, “I had a lot of luggage at the airport, so I couldn’t send it home to collect it.” He also said, “(Lee) Kangin said he didn’t bring it, but only Wooyoung (Jung) put it in his pocket and asked, ‘Why did you bring it with you?'” Wooyoung said. “I don’t think anyone else brought it,” he said with a laugh.
When asked how much of his share he had in this gold medal, he was humble and said, “It’s not just ‘5%.'” He went on to say that he “did very little other than participate.”
Seol Young-woo played two consecutive international matches in Europe in September and then forced himself to participate in the Asian Games. He said, “It’s difficult for me as I’m getting older,” and added, “But since the national team is not a fixed position, I want to keep coming for a long time.”
Now, the moment has come for Seol Young-woo to prove his competitiveness in the national team A. He expressed his determination, saying, “Competition is fierce both in the Asian Games and the national team. Moreover, there is no age limit for the national team A. Only by winning the competition can you advance to a higher level. I also want to become a starting player.”
At the same time, he criticized himself as a player who still has more disadvantages than advantages. Seol Young-woo said, “Because he is younger than his older brothers, his advantage is that he can run a lot. He also has good recovery ability. I don’t think there is anything else. Especially since he lacks experience, he will learn a lot from his seniors.” He then explained, “In Ulsan, we make a lot of aggressive moves, but our defense is our weak point in the A national team, so we need to improve it.”
In response to the news that Ulsan coach Hong Myung-bo was disappointed because he did not contact me after winning the gold medal, he said, “I couldn’t contact you on the day, but I knew he was disappointed when I saw the article. So I called him right away at the airport. He congratulated me a lot and I don’t think he was angry.” .
Seol Young-woo, who promoted national prestige by winning a gold medal, received the great benefit of exemption from military service. He emphasized, “All players have concerns about military service. Now that it has been resolved, I think good opportunities will come. For now, I will focus on my team and the Asian Champions League (ACL).”
When asked how much his self-worth increased after winning the Asian Games gold medal, his humble attitude disappeared and he laughed. He said, “I think it will be around 10 billion won. But I will win better medals in the future. I will do my best whenever I get a chance with the national team.”
