What uniform number will Oh Hyun-gyu (21, Suwon Samsung) receive in his first season in Europe?
Oh Hyun-kyu is about to transfer to Celtic, a prestigious Scottish club. An official from Suwon Samsung said on the 25th, “Oh Hyeon-kyu moved to England during the Lunar New Year holiday and completed the transfer process. The medical test was also completed,” he said. “I concluded all procedures with Celtic over the transfer of Oh Hyun-kyu. He is coordinating the timing of the official announcement,” he explained.
In fact, it is a situation where only ‘clothes’ are left. Oh Hyun-kyu will become the third Korean Celtic player following Ki Sung-yong and Cha Du-ri, who played a big role in Celtic in the past. Oh Hyeon-gyu, who solved the problem of military service by enlisting in Gimcheon Sangmu early on, is ready to play on the European stage of his dreams.
The uniform number is also a major concern. A total of 29 players are currently registered in the Celtic first team. Among them, there are 6 strikers, and there are 2 more strikers who are playing on loan in other teams.
Number 9, the most symbolic number in the offensive position, belongs to Sid Hakshavanovic (23, Sweden). In addition to these, Kyogo Furuhashi (28, Japan) is 8 times, Maeda Daizen (25, Japan) is 38 times, Riel Abada (21, Israel) is 11 times, and Georgios Yakomakis (28, Greece) is 7 times. wear a uniform
The number 18 that Oh Hyun-gyu used for Suwon Samsung and the Olympic team is now being worn by Yuki Kobayashi, a Japanese defender. 안전놀이터 The number 99 that Oh Hyeon-gyu used as a managing director in Gimcheon is an unowned number.
Among the main numbers of strikers, the numbers 10 and 19 do not have owners. Albian Ayetti, who used number 10, moved to Austria SK Sturm Graz on loan. Michael Johnston, number 19, plays on loan at Vitoria SC, Portugal. Both players are on loan until June 2023.
In addition to the numbers 10 and 19, you could also get the number 7 jersey. Currently number 7, Giorgios is pursuing a transfer to Urawa Reds in the Japanese J-League. There is a possibility that Oh Hyun-gyu will inherit the number 7 as the local media evaluates “Oh Hyun-gyu as an expected stock that can fill the void of Giorgios well.”
On the other hand, Ki Sung-yong and Cha Doo-ri, who were Oh Hyun-gyu’s presidential candidates, were handed the number 18 and 11 jerseys, respectively, during their Celtic days and played an active part. Ki Sung-yueng moved from Celtic to Swansea City in England, and Cha Doo-ri moved to Düsseldorf in Germany.
