Korean soccer legend MF visits ‘the best team in Europe’ and then ‘the best club in PL’?…”It was the last soccer trip. I had so much fun”

Ki Sung-yueng, who hails from Gwangyang Steel Middle School and Geumho High School, debuted as a pro at FC Seoul in 2009 and emerged as a “Hesung” player, and Ki took charge of the central district of Seoul. He has grown into the core of his team by scoring nine goals and 13 assists in 93 games, and made his A-match debut in 2008. Since then, he has become a Korean soccer legend with 10 goals in 110 A-match games.

Ki challenged himself in the European leagues in 2010. He transferred to Celtic FC, one of the most prestigious clubs in the Scottish Premiership. With Celtic, Ki immediately played in 10 matches, completing his adjustment phase. After the 2009-2010 season, he played in the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, gaining experience in international competitions.

During the three seasons with Celtic, he displayed outstanding performance by scoring 12 goals and nine assists in 87 matches, before moving to Swansea City in the English Premier League. After the transfer, Ki recorded the record of three assists in 38 matches in his first season, receiving many opportunities to play as the team’s starting midfielder.

In the second year, he went on loan to Sunderland AFC to receive more opportunities, and spent a successful loan with four goals and two assists in 35 games. After returning from loan, Ki Sung-yueng again took charge of Swansea’s midfield, leaving an excellent record of 12 goals and 10 assists in 168 games.

In the 2014-2015 season, Shinji Kagawa broke the record for most goals scored in a single season of the Asian Premier League set by Manchester United. Unfortunately, Swansea was relegated from the Premier League to the English Championship, the second division, in the 2017-2018 season, and Ki Sung-yueng moved to Newcastle United after his contract expired.

Ki spent two seasons at Newcastle, and negotiated with Seoul to return to the K-League, but the negotiations failed. After spending six months at RCD Mallorca in the Spanish Primera Liga, Ki returned to his former team in Seoul. Ki was the biggest contributor to the success of the K-League. He garnered six goals and six assists in 114 games during the four seasons, and acquired the status of a free agent.

Ki Sung-yueng has been on a football trip visiting overseas clubs. He met and talked with Hwang Hee-chan of the Wolverhampton Wanderers and Tottenham Hotspur Son Heung-min, and also visited his former team Celtic. He also visited the Brighton Hove and Albion club, led by Roberto De Gerby, a tactician.

Ki also visited the training ground for Real Madrid. The Real squad also welcomed Ki with a bright smile. Manager Carlo Ancelotti, manager of the second tier team Raul Gonzalez, Luca Modric, and Eduardo Camavinga all started their photo sessions with bright smiles, while Jude Bellingham continued his dialogue with Ki with a serious look on his face.

It seems that Ki even visited Arsenal’s training site on the day. “At the end of the soccer trip, we had a lot of fun talking with Coach Mikel and Coach Albert. I didn’t know that Coach Albert was in Manchester United, but you bullied Manchester United a lot,” Ki said on Instagram.

Albert was a coach who assisted Louis van Gaal, who was the coach of Manchester United during the 2014-2015 season. In this season, Ki scored a goal in the opening game against Manchester United, and also split the net in the second league showdown. Albert told Ki at the time. 무료 슬롯

“I felt Arteta when I was a player, but he seems to be a natural leader,” Ki Sung-yueng said. “It’s very new to talk to people with clear tactical philosophies. There are many interesting parts about how that philosophy is made and how it changes depending on the situation.”

Arteta was currently playing for Arsenal in 2012-2013 when Ki joined Swansea. Later, Arteta announced his retirement after the 2015-2016 season. He had played in the Premier League for four seasons together. In a match between Arsenal and Swansea, Ki and Arteta shared the ground together.

Ki is expected to complete his overseas club visit, noting that it is his last time on a soccer trip. Chances are high that he will return to Korea soon, sign an FA contract, and leave for his team’s off-season training.
