Jeju United said on Tuesday that it has recruited midfielder Kim Jung-min. Kim Jung-min, who was considered one of the most promising players, will join hands with Kim Hak-bum, the coach of his teacher, to revive the team as Kim Hak-bum’s persona.랭크카지노주소
Kim Jung-min was named one of the 60 promising soccer players around the world by the Guardian in 2016. He later won the gold medal at the 2018 Jakarta-Palembang Asian Games and made his A-match debut in November 2018. In 2019, he also contributed to the runner-up finish at the FIFA U-20 World Cup.
Unlike his stellar career in the national team by age, he has faltered in the professional league.
After playing for the Austrian Red Bull Salzburg, FC refurbishment, Admira Barker Modling, and Vitoria SC (Portugal), he started his K-League career with Gangwon FC (rental) in 2021. He transferred to the K-League 2 Busan I’Park (rental) in July 2021, and played for the K-League 2 FC Anyang in 2023. He played in only six games last year.
Head coach Kim Hak-beom, who collaborated to win the gold medal at the 2018 Asian Games, called Kim Jung-min. At that time, Kim Jung-min was trusted by head coach Kim Hak-beom, playing in five games even at the age of 18.
“Coach Kim Hak-beom has decided that Kim Jung-min’s potential, which has not yet blossomed, is valid,” Jeju said. “We can inject new synergy into the Jeju midfield with sophisticated passes and strong shots.”
Kim Jung-min said, “I’m so happy to be part of a good team called Jeju. It’s even better to be with coach Kim Hak-beom again. I’ll try to be a player who can give trust to all the members of Jeju. I’ll continue to work hard with the determination of ‘Mapupo-chim (making needles by changing axes)’, which was my debut at the Asian Games, so that I can achieve success with all the members in Jeju.”
