Hwang Ui-jo will once again challenge to enter the EPL. He moved from Girondin Bordeaux to Nottingham last year, but was immediately loaned to Olympiacos and failed to play in the EPL. He failed to compete for the starting position at Olympiacos and left for FC Seoul through the winter transfer market.
He returned to Nottingham this summer. Hwang Ui-jo, who returned to Nottingham and participated in pre-season training after reporting goals in the last two games in Seoul and scoring goals in the A match.
It was a good start. Hwang Ui-jo played as a substitute against Notts County, the first game of the preseason, and scored with good forward pressure. It was a typical goal aimed at the corner of the goal with his right foot in a one-on-one situation with the goalkeeper.
However, Hwang Ui-jo’s performance was up to that point. Hwang Ui-jo started against Valencia and Stadren, but was substituted or stayed on the bench for the rest of the game.
He missed the last game of the preseason, which was the most important. Coach Steven Cooper played Morgan Gibbswhite and Brennan Johnson two-top against Eintracht Frankfurt a week before the opening of the EPL. Chris Wood replaced Johnson in the 26th minute of the second half. In the match, Cooper replaced only three of the players, suggesting that the starting plan was somewhat over.
Hwang Ui-jo is likely to start on the bench against Arsenal. Britain’s “Guardian” predicted against Arsenal that Nottingham would operate Gibbs White and Johnson’s two-top.
There is hope for Hwang Ui-jo. Nottingham suffered a preseason hiatus. He scored only three goals in seven games. If Gibbs White, Johnson, and Wood all fail to score, Cooper may be mindful of Hwang Ui-jo, who scored his first goal of the pre-season.
If Hwang Ui-jo plays, he must prove his skills by scoring. Currently, Awanee, who was the team’s most scorer last season, is unable to play due to injury. It is unfortunate for Nottingham, but for Hwang Ui-jo, it is a valuable opportunity to see the light in the main competition.
Hwang Ui-jo failed to gain the upper hand in the pre-season competition. Now you have to prove your skills in practice. If he takes the opportunity to score in the opening game of the EPL, he can reveal his prospects as the main striker of the EPL that he dreamed of.
