Kim Eun-jung’s goalkeeper Moon Hyun-ho (20), who laid the foundation for the semi-finals of the FIFA U-20 World Cup, will head to Ulsan HD, the strongest team in the K League.
According to multiple transfer market officials on the 29th, Chungnam Asan goalkeeper Moon Hyun-ho will move to Ulsan HD, the winner of the K League 1.
A young goalkeeper born in 2003, Moon Hyun-ho is a goalkeeper who passed the Suwon Samsung youth system, including those from Maetan Middle School to Maetan High School in Suwon. He was recruited as a free starter by Asan in South Chungcheong Province in January 2022. Moon is a goalkeeper who is 196 centimeters tall and has good defense capability based on his long arms.
Making his professional debut in the 2022 season, Moon had to be satisfied with his experience by playing only four games in the K-League 2. He then played in 13 games in 2023 and was given no run in the 24th round away game against Seoul E-Land on July 31, earning positive reviews by coach Park Dong-hyuk. Since then, Moon has played a total of 13 games and allowed two runs in this season as a starter and substitute. 토토사이트
Moon Hyun-ho made his name known in the national team by age. Kim Eun-joong, who caught the eye of Coach Kim, was selected as a member of the Korean U-20 national team and participated in the 2023 FIFA U-20 World Cup in Argentina in May this year.
Moon Hyun-ho, who served as the backup goalkeeper for Kim Joon-hong (Kim Cheon Sang-mu), started Game 3 against the Gambia as Kim Joon-hong was banned from Game 3 due to accumulated warning disciplinary action after receiving warnings in succession from Game 1 and 2. He displayed good defense by neutralizing the Gambia’s attackers, giving the Gambia its first goalless game. Korea advanced to the round of 16 as the second-ranked team in the group with a draw against the Gambia. Korea has won consecutive games to achieve the semi-finals for two consecutive games.
Moon Hyun-ho was then selected in place of Kim Jung-hoon (Jeonbuk Hyundai), who was injured on the French away match list of the Olympic team led by Hwang Sun-hong in November.
With Moon Hyun-ho joining, Ulsan will establish a thick goalkeeper’s team, including Min Dong-hwan, Seol Hyun-bin, and Moon Hyun-ho, in Cho Hyun-woo (32) and Cho Soo-hyuk (36). With Moon Hyun-ho joining, the competition for “post Cho Hyun-woo” is expected to become fiercer in the future.
As Moon Hyun-ho leaves Asan, South Chungcheong Province, “Korea’s David Raya” Shin Song-hoon (21), who is serving as the goalkeeper for the national Olympic team, will leave Gwangju and move to Asan, South Chungcheong Province. The signing is over, and an official announcement will be made soon.
