Kim Shin-wook signed a 3 year and 6 month contract with Kitchee in Hong Kong and took on a new challenge.
A soccer source said on the 2nd, “Kim Shin-wook signed a contract with Kitchee, a prestigious club in Hong Kong. The contract period is 3 years and 6 months, and it is the best treatment in Hong Kong professional football,” he said.
Kim Shin-wook, a 198 cm tall striker, is a striker who left a big mark in the Korean national soccer team, scoring 16 goals in 56 matches for the national team.
Debuting as a pro at Ulsan Hyundai in 2009, he was spotlighted as the best tall striker on the Asian stage. In 2012, he lifted the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Champions League (ACL) championship cup in Ulsan, and in 2013, he received the K-League Best Player Award (MVP).
Even after moving to Jeonbuk Hyundai in 2016, he showed off his top-notch skills and led the team to the 2016 AFC Champions League championship, 2017 and 2018 K-League regular league championships.
In addition, Kim Shin-wook, who moved to Shanghai Shenhua (China) following former Jeonbuk coach Choi Kang-hee in the summer of 2019, broke up in August 2021 due to team circumstances and headed to Lion City in the Singapore Premier League.
Kim Shin-wook, who joined Lion City led by coach Kim Do-hoon in 2021, played 26 league games and scored 21 goals, making a big success. Shinwook Kim, who had a good last year, wants his final challenge this year. Lion City also came to support Kim Shin-wook’s future after thinking about it and cheering for a new challenge. 카지노사이트
Kitchee showed active interest in Kim Shin-wook from the time he was active in Singapore. He decided that he needed Kim Shin-wook to survive in the ACL stage, so he tried to recruit him. Domestic players also showed interest in recruiting Kim Shin-wook, but Kitchee was already one step ahead.
Kitchee, considered the strongest team in the Hong Kong league, is leading the league this season with 8 wins and 1 loss in 9 matches.
In particular, Dejan (Montenegro), who became the top scorer in the K-League while playing for FC Seoul, Suwon Samsung, and Daegu FC, is active in Kitchi. Dejan is a legend who set records for the most appearances (380 games) and the most goals (198 goals) for a foreign player in the K-League.
If Kim Shin-wook joins, there is a high possibility that he will play as a two-top player with Dejan.
