Destiny Udoji, who left on loan from Tottenham Hotspur, scored after a long time.
Udinese drew 2-2 with Sassuolo in the 22nd round of Italian Serie A in the 2022-23 season held at Dacia Arena in Udine, Italy on the 12th at 8:30 pm (Korean time). This puts Udinese in 8th place with 30 points and Sassuolo in 15th place with 24 points.
The goal was scored as soon as the match started. In the 1st minute of the first half, Woo Do-gi broke through from the left side to the center and fired a surprise right-footed shot to open the scoring. Udo-ji shook the net in just 25 seconds to be precise. With the goal that day, Doji Woo has played 18 Serie A games this season and accumulated 3 goals and 2 assists.
Tottenham have been signing more than one or two emerging talents every season. Last season, Brian Hill was brought in, and this season, Doji Woo is the main character. However, unlike Hill, Udoji is immediately leaving for a season at Udinese, his original team, to gain experience.
Udoji grew up at Ellas Verona Youth. He made his first professional debut in the 2020-21 season, and last season he left on loan to Udinese and played 35 Italian Serie A matches, scoring 5 goals and 3 assists, showing his potential.
Tottenham sent a love call to these performances. General manager Fabio Paratici actively promoted the recruitment of Doji Udo, and coach Antonio Conte also agreed with general manager Paratici’s opinion and confirmed the recruitment. Tottenham had Udoji for 18 million euros (approximately 25 billion won), and plans to continue to accompany him until 2027. 온라인바카라
However, Udoji left on loan to Udinese again. Tottenham already had Ivan Perisic and Ryan Sessegnon playing in the left fullback position, so there was no place. In the end, Tottenham sent him on loan for a season, hoping to play a steady game. Udoji has already been active as a starter for Udinese, so he is gaining experience as a starter this season as well.
In particular, it is attracting more attention because it is considered a resource to replace Perisic in the upcoming season. This season, Tottenham is mainly using Perisic as the main wingback. However, he is evaluated as a disappointing recruit because his breathing with Son Heung-min is not good and his influence in the game is also very low.
Tottenham fans also quickly wished for Udoji’s return. Fans responded, “This is a really great goal by Doji Udoji. Tottenham need him as soon as possible,” while other fans hoped for his return, saying, “Give him back Doji Udoji right away!”
