It is permeating smoothly on the European stage. Now is the time to leave a little bit of an impact.
Wearing a Scottish Premier League Celtic uniform this winter, Oh Hyun-kyu (22) has recently stepped on the ground as a substitute in three consecutive matches and is smoothly adapting to the team.
The most time he played so far was 15 minutes in the 24th round of the regular league against Livingston on the 2nd, the second match since his joining. Oh Hyeon-gyu was put in as a backup agent for Kyogo Furuhashi (Japan), who guards the front line in all three games. In other words, he has to go beyond Furuhashi to secure a starting position.
It is not easy to push Furuhashi to the bench for the remainder of this season. Furuhashi is the leading scorer in the league with 19 goals this season. Celtic is in the lead with 70 points (23 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss) amid his performance, widening the gap with second place Rangers (61 points). There is no reason to change the ‘scorer’ in the current flow of winning points in all matches except one. 카지노사이트
Previously, Greek national striker Yorgos Yakumakis was pushed by Furuhashi and was looking for a new nest, but transferred to Major League Soccer Atlanta. Celtic recruited Oh Hyun-gyu as a replacement for Yakumakis.
Hyungyu Oh is in no hurry. Winter recruits are known as ‘immediate sense of power’ in Europe, but Celtic was a choice that looked into the future. After joining Celtic last season and scoring 12 goals, Furuhashi is showing off his explosive scoring power this season, drawing attention from major teams in other leagues.
Celtic is likely to negotiate with a club that offers the right value as Furuhashi was born in 1995 and is in his prime as a soccer player. Naturally, it seems that Oh Hyun-gyu will take over the baton, but there is no always a fixed position within the team.
In order for an Asian striker to survive on the European stage, he must show off his value in the given time. Following an impressive cross in his debut match against Dundee on the 30th of last month, Oh Hyun-kyu induced the opponent to leave the match against St. Johnstone on the 5th and served as a stepping stone for the wedge.
Celtic will play the 5th round (R16) of the Scottish Cup against St. Mirren at 2:30 am on the 12th. Celtic is aiming for the treble (three crowns) from the league to the League Cup and Scottish Cup. In St. Mirrenjeon, there is an opinion that the ‘starter’ player, who has had little time to play in the rotation, will come out first. Oh Hyun-kyu is one of them. If he gets his first start in the Scottish Cup, which is less burdensome than the league, and even scores a goal on his debut, the pace of being reborn as a ‘Celtic Man’ is expected to accelerate even more.
