Goalkeeper Joe Hart (35), who was active as the goalkeeper of Manchester City in the English Premier League (EPL) in the past, looked forward to the future of Oh Hyun-gyu (22, above Celtic).
Joe Hart mentioned Oh Hyun-kyu, who joined last month, in an interview with the Glasgow Times on the 4th (Korean time). “I think he brings something special to the team,” he said.
Joe Hart, who has played 75 A matches as a former England national team player, played for Manchester City from 2006 to 2018, including a loan life. Since then, he has also worked for Tottenham in 2020-2021.
On the 25th of last month, Oh Hyeon-gyu, who played for Suwon Samsung in the Korean professional football K League 1, wore the uniform of Celtic, a prestigious Scottish team. His impressive performance in the 2022 season has drawn interest from Celtic.
Last season, Oh Hyun-kyu played 36 league games and scored the most goals (13 goals) in the team, quickly emerging as an indispensable presence in Suwon. I also went to the 2022 Qatar World Cup as a ‘preliminary member’ in the eyes of coach Paulo Bento.
Celtic persistently courted Oh Hyun-kyu and succeeded in recruiting Gearko. He is known to have paid up to 3 million euros (about 4 billion won) in transfer fees. His contract is for 5 years.
Oh Hyun-kyu made his debut by stepping on the pitch as a substitute in the 37th minute of the second half against Dundee United in the 23rd round of the 2022-2023 Scottish Premiership held on the 30th of last month. 메이저사이트
It was a short time, but Oh Hyun-gyu took a picture of his eyes with an active look. He showed his presence by presenting a yellow card to the opposing defense for a bold break through the side two minutes after being put in. Even after that, he boasted active movements, such as stealing the ball from the attacking half with good pressure.
In particular, Oh Hyun-kyu delivered a sharp cross that fell in front of the goal just before the end of the game, creating a scene that was no different from a goal.
Afterwards, Oh Hyun-gyu made his long-awaited home game debut on the 2nd. He stepped on the ground in place of Leo Hadate in the 30th minute of the second half when the team won 3-0. He did not record an attacking point, but compared to the remarkably short time to adapt to Celtic, he showed light movement.
Joe Hart, who has been guarding the Celtic goal since 2021, said of Oh Hyun-gyu, “He is young and passionate. He is also technically good. Like the fans, we like to talk about new players when they come. There was a story that Oh Hyun-kyu’s style was sharp.” He
added, “Oh Hyun-kyu doesn’t have much training time (at Celtic), but I think he will bring something special to the club in the future.”
