K League 1 FC Seoul striker Na Sang-ho revealed that he has no intention of advancing to Europe with friends of the same age, such as Hwang In-beom and Kim Min-jae.
On the 22nd, Seoul held a press conference for the 2023 K-League Winter Field Training Media Camp at the Gangdong branch of the HJ Convention Center in Gangdong-gu, Seoul. Na Sang-ho, who attended the event, announced that he would challenge with a clear goal, rather than follow Hwang In-beom and Kim Min-jae, the so-called ’96 line’ of the national team, to advance to Europe.
Born in 1996, Na Sang-ho, like Cho Kyu-seong and Oh Hyun-kyu, received attention from many European teams after last year’s World Cup in Qatar. He was embroiled in transfer rumors from several leagues, including Panathinaikos in Greece, Turkiye, and Denmark.
Many expected that Na Sang-ho would decide to go to Europe. This is because Hwang In-beom and Kim Min-jae, who are their peers, are making great strides at Olympiacos and Napoli, respectively.
This season, Hwang In-beom has played 28 matches for Olympiacos and is being appointed as the starting pitcher. He has scored 1 goal and 4 assists in the league and 1 goal in the UEFA (European Football Federation) Europa League qualifiers, and is also steadily accumulating attack points.
Kim Min-jae needs no words. After joining Napoli this season, he has established himself as one of the best centre-backs in Europe. Even though he is tall, he has quick feet so he doesn’t get pushed in the air ball or speed competition. Thanks to Kim Min-jae, Napoli was able to play attacking football and are cruising in Serie A and UEFA Champions League. 바카라
As his peers are showing good looks in Europe, Na Sang-ho may be impatient, but he expressed his intention to make a decision carefully.
On this day, Na Sang-ho said, “I’ve been thinking about the European challenge. But it’s not going my way. I’ll stay in Seoul and help you achieve your goals, and then take on new challenges.”
He admits, “I have a big dream of taking on overseas challenges because my friends are doing well overseas.” He said that he would not simply follow his friends, saying, “I think I can endure and succeed only when I go out with a strong mind.”
