“I want to grow up one step further and be discharged.”
Cho Young-wook enlisted last month as managing director Kim Cheon. He stepped on the professional stage at FC Seoul in the 2018 season and established himself as the team’s key striker. In particular, last season, he accumulated the most offensive points in his personal career with 8 goals and 8 assists, but this season he chose to enlist.
Recently, at the press conference for the 2023 K-League Winter Field Training Media Camp held at the Songjeong Hotel in Busan, he awkwardly touched his short hair. Cho Young-wook laughed, saying, “The army is definitely an army,” and “I was prepared, and I am adapting well. Time passes the same way, but it seems to go really late here.”
Unfortunately, the meeting with his parent team, Seoul, has been cancelled. Kimcheon was relegated last year. Cho Young-wook said, “At first, I didn’t want to meet Seoul. I thought it would be strange to play on the other side, but now I want to meet him. After the game, I want to go to the supporters’ table to say hello and applaud,” he laughed.
It was the first time I was on the K-League 2 stage. It is a situation where you have to run towards promotion in the 2nd division. He said, “I heard a lot of stories about going wild. I’m a little worried about that part, but it’s the player’s job to adapt as quickly as possible and prepare to show a good image.”
Looking forward to further growth. An environment has been created where you can focus only on football. Jo Young-wook said, “That’s right. I’m thinking of making up for my shortcomings, but I’m trying to specialize in my strengths. He said, “I want to play aggressively, try more shots, and add sophistication to it.”
There is an example. They are Oh Hyun-kyu (Celtic) and Cho Kyu-seong (Jeonbuk Hyundai). After serving in the military service, Hyungyu Oh succeeded in advancing to Europe with the prestigious Scottish Celtic after playing in Suwon Samsung. 토토사이트
Cho Young-wook said, “There is a precedent, but I think that such players would have improved not only in Sangmu, but wherever they were. I also think a lot about getting opportunities and grabbing them by working hard, not just here. It is my dream to show a good side of myself, to grow one step further and to be discharged.”
