Lee Chun-soo shed light on his YouTube channel ‘Lee Chun-soo’ on the 9th about the advancement of promising Korean players into Europe.
Recently, the number of promising players entering Europe has increased sharply. In particular, European clubs have yet to make a professional debut or are working hard to recruit a Korean player who has just made his professional debut.
Celtic (Scotland) recruited Oh Hyun-kyu, Yang Hyun-joon and Kwon Hyuk-kyu, who played in the K League, one after another, while SpVg Unter Hahing (Germany) recruited Hong Hyun-seok, who has not yet debuted in the K League, on loan. Based on his performance here, Hong Hyun-suk plays for KAA Hent (Belgium) after playing for LASK (Austria).
In addition, a number of promising players, including Kim Ji-soo (Brentford), Bae Joon-ho (Stoke City), and Lee Hyun-joo (Bayern Munich), have entered Europe. 바카라
Lee Chun-soo said, “There are more young players or players who went to the big league after going through it once.” Kim Min-jae went to Germany through Turkey and Italy, while Son Heung-min went to Tottenham, England, from Germany through Hamburg and Leverkusen. It was recognized by foreign agents. Also, Korean players work very hard and don’t cause problems. In addition, young players will be brought in when a light transfer fee is set and transferred later to make money. “There is also a profitable part that the Asian market is large,” he analyzed.
“The most important thing here is my ability, but I’m also good skills. “If I’m the owner or scout, I’m very eager for Korean players at this point,” he said.
There is also a change in the system according to the changing times. Lee Chun-soo said, “When I was a player, I didn’t have such a system at all. In my case, an agent from a foreign country came and said, “I’ll take you with me.” It was possible because the World Cup data was transferred. I went to Spain on that. Without it, I wouldn’t have known who Lee Chun-soo is and where Korea is. I played the World Cup, and I was able to go with the data that there is a team like this and a player like this. “Now, we have a lot of competitions and information, so we can go to Europe more conveniently than in the past,” he said.
In particular, he mentioned the “Golden Age” system of the Korea Football Association. Golden Age is an intensive development program for players aged 8 to 15 who have the fastest learning skills in soccer.
Lee Chun-soo said, “There is nothing to praise from the Korea Football Association these days, but the Golden Age is a good system. If you gather players who are good in small units and train them, and pick players who are good here, it will be the national team. This system is well established by age. Golden Age was ambiguous at first, but many good players came out as they settled down well. This system is a good one,” he said.
