The 2024 season is important to Heo Yul, a former Gwangju FC youth and the core of the attack. It is a season that needs to be proved more than ever, so I have to be determined.랭크카지노도메인
Heo Yul is one of the future of Gwangju and Korean soccer. Born in Gwangju Youth, Heo immediately became a pro after graduating from Kumho High School. Starting to seize opportunities in his second year, Heo continued to play and grow under coach Lee Jung-hyo. The U-22 rule provides him with priority, which also helped Heo grow.
The 23-year-old will not be eligible to play in the U-22 starting this season. He should be chosen by coach Lee based on his own skills. This is why Heo Yul has to do better this season.
In an interview before leaving for Chiang Mai, Thailand, on the 3rd, Heo Yul said, “The 22-year-old ticket is gone, and I think I have to prove my value. My position is that there are foreign players, so I thought it was competition even under the age of 22. I always thought I was a foreign player and played,” trying not to lose confidence this season.
He could face an important starting point in his soccer life this season. It is the Paris Olympics. Heo Yul is in the age group of the U-23 national team that can participate in the Olympics. It is also an opportunity for Heo Yul because there are few one-top players in Korea who have good physicality.
Heo Yul has been named on the list of off-season training for the U-23 national team in Turkiye, which will be held from the 14th. He must prove his value not only in the national team call-up but also in his team Gwangju. In addition, he must be recognized for his ability at the 2024 AFC U-23 Asian Cup in April along with advancing to the Olympic finals.
“My position is Oh Hyun-kyu (Celtic), who is playing overseas. I think it is competitive depending on what kind of performance he is performing in the first half of the year. We have to prepare well in Gwangju,” he stressed.
Heo played in 33 matches in the 2023 season, but had three goals and three assists, which was disappointing in terms of statistics. He needs more goals to prove his value as a striker. Coach Lee Jung-hyo wants soccer to score more goals this season, which makes Heo feel heavier.
“I will score a lot of goals, and I will be more immersed in scoring situations. I value opportunities, and I will prepare hard,” he said. “It is important to prepare well without injury this season,” promising more goals this season.
