Gangwon FC striker Yang Hyeon-jun (21) of the K-League 1 (Part 1) in professional football is dreaming of a big dream through his first overseas field training.
On the 5th, Gangwon left for Chonburi, Thailand, a winter training camp. After conducting the first training locally until the 26th, he returns to Korea and conducts the second battery training in Gijang, Gyeongnam. Kangwon left overseas training for the first time in three years since 2020 (returning from Thailand during the first overseas training at the time). In the meantime, due to the great spread of Corona 19, I have not been able to go to overseas training.
Yang Hyun-jun, who made his professional debut in 2021 by signing an S-class contract with Gangwon (contract period of 5 years, up to 150 million won in down payment) while attending high school in Busan, had high expectations for his first overseas training. “I had a good rest during the off-season. I went on a trip to Jeju Island with his family and had fun with his friends in Busan. He does his first battery training abroad, not domestically. He is roommates with Lee Jung-hyeop. I laughed, saying, “Bangjol (Bangjol).”
Yang Hyun-joon set a goal to develop both physical strength and physique through weight training at the field training in Chonburi, Thailand. According to Yang Hyun-jun’s official profile, his physique is 1m79cm·73kg. He said, “Shouldn’t we show a good performance in the 2023 season? he was determined. He felt that he needed to improve his stamina and build up his physique as he played last season,” he said.메이저놀이터
Yang Hyeon-jun was one of the most outstanding side strikers in the K-League last season. He was selected for the ‘Team K League’, an all-star team in the K-League last year, and became a surprise star with his brilliant dribbling in a friendly match against Tottenham in the English Premier League (EPL). He scored 8 goals and 4 assists in 36 appearances in the league. He won two gold medals in the Young Player Award category given by the Professional Football Federation and the Korea Football Association (KFA).
The football world took notice. Transfer Room, a media specializing in soccer, also named Hyun-Jun Yang as the ‘World’s Top 10 Right Winger’. Yang Hyun-joon, who watched almost all the matches of the Qatar World Cup, emphasized, “Former Gangwon representative Lee Young-pyo also told me to play with a bigger goal.” .
Yang Hyun-Jun played his first full-time season since his debut last season. He struggled in the second half. In the final seven games of the season, he had no offensive points. Yang Hyun-joon said, “The opposing team prepared for the game by analyzing me well. He did not come up to attack after lowering the defensive line, so the space (to penetrate) did not come out well,” he said. “I was very tired. He looked back, saying, “He lacked stamina, so his body couldn’t keep up.”
Yang Hyun-jun said, “The most important goal for the 2023 season is to accumulate more attack points and lead the team to victory. Originally, I don’t set personal goals, but I set my goal for the new season as 15 attack points. Whether it’s a goal or an assist, it doesn’t matter. We are working hard to have a better season than last year. (This year) I want to give a smile to Gangwon fans.
