Oh Hyeon-gyu (22), who left Suwon Samsung and transferred to Celtic, a prestigious Scottish club, showed great enthusiasm.
In a video of the joining press conference released by the Celtic club on the 26th (local time), Hyungyu Oh said, “It was a club I really wanted to go to, and I wanted to play in front of the fans. “I always wanted to come to Celtic, and I thought Celtic would show interest if I did well and showed good form in Suwon,” he said.
Celtic, which sent a 먹튀검증 love call to Oh Hyun-kyu from September of last year, finally announced a five-year contract on the 25th of this month. Oh Hyun-gyu, who succeeded in transferring after long negotiations, said, “I really wanted to come to this team. It is true that it was not easy to come,” he said, expressing his joy, saying, “There was a difficult process, but the fact that I am wearing a Celtic uniform here is like a dream.”
Celtic is a team led by Angie Postecoglu, who previously led the Australian national team and the Japanese J-League Yokohama Marinos. He has a high understanding of Asian players, and many Japanese players, such as Kyogo Furuhashi and Daizen Maeda, are already playing for Celtic.
Oh Hyun-kyu said, “I knew the coach when he was in Japan, and I remember that he played good soccer. I think he knows Asian football and knows the strengths of the players, and I think (in the recruiting process) it must have had an impact on me as well.” “I knew that the manager and Celtic really wanted me. Even though I expressed interest for a long time, if (negotiation) time gets longer, you may want another player, and you continued to want me.”
Oh Hyeon-gyu said, “I think I will have to repay you with as many goals as the coach wants me to do.” “I want to make an impressive debut. I want to have an unforgettable debut match.”
“Celtic itself is a very leading team,” he said. “I think I can be stronger than anyone else in the penalty box. When the ball is put into the penalty box, a lot of points can be scored through good positioning.”
When asked by a local reporter, “Are you ready to run?”, he smiled and replied in English, “No problem.” At the same time, Hyungyu Oh said, “I trained yesterday, and it was very difficult. However, I felt that I could become stronger even in difficult situations, and I thought that I would be able to show a better appearance in the future as I adapt to this kind of football.”
On the other hand, when asked if he had any advice from Son Heung-min (Tottenham) and Hwang Hee-chan (Wolverhampton), who play in the English Professional Football Premier League (EPL), Oh Hyun-gyu said, “I suddenly transferred, so my brothers have not said anything yet. I intend to seek advice from time to time.”
