Perhaps Kim Jin-soo (31, Jeonbuk Hyundai) and Cristiano Ronaldo (38, Al-Nasr) will eat rice together. Regarding Ronaldo, who moved to the Saudi Arabia League, Kim Jin-soo said, “I really didn’t know how to go,” and made a surprised expression.
Kim Jin-soo received a question about Ronaldo, who transferred to Al-Nasr, at the winter training camp held at the Jeonbuk Hyundai Clubhouse in Wanju, Jeonbuk on the afternoon of the 12th. Kim Jin-soo said, “I didn’t know (Ronaldo) would really go (to Saudi Arabia).”
“Right now Saudi football 카지노사이트 is making a lot of investments,” he said, “not only mercenary players, but also Saudi football is working hard to develop.” Kim Jin-soo added, “I will tell you again when I go (to Saudi Arabia).”
Kim Jin-soo’s original team, which was loaned to Jeonbuk, is Al Nass of Saudi Arabia. He was loaned to Jeonbuk in 2021 and is active as the main left fullback.
Ronaldo terminated his contract with Manchester United (England) during the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. Ronaldo, who received attention for his destination right after the tournament, moved to the Saudi League. Kim Jin-soo, who faced Portugal national team captain Ronaldo in the World Cup, is a little embarrassed to be a member of the same team.
Kim Jin-soo, who extended his lease once to participate in the World Cup last year, is thinking of returning to his original team. He explained, “Whether I stay in Jeonbuk or join a different team, it’s right to go back because the team I belong to is Al Nasr.”
Jeonbuk lifted the FA Cup trophy last season, but failed to win the K-League 1 six times in a row. At the end of the season, Ulsan and Hyundai lost to the derby, and eventually handed over the championship trophy to Ulsan.
Ulsan, who won the league championship after 17 years, starts the season as the ‘defending champion’. It is a modifier that has been in front of Jeonbuk for 5 years, but not this season.
Kim Jin-soo expressed regret, saying, “I missed the league championship I wanted last year.” “I know how to prepare for this season,” he said. “Not only me, but all the players know.”
He showed confidence, saying, “(Last season) we had a lot of away wins, but if we win all the home wins (this season), there will be no big problem (to win).”
