South Korean midfielder Hwang In-beom (26) has informed Olympiakos of his intention to leave the club.
Greek media outlet ‘Gazeta’ reported on the 11th (KST), “Hwang In-beom wants to leave Olympiacos. He still has two years left on his contract, and Olympiacos is very angry about his behavior.”
Olympiakos is incredulous. They immediately consulted with their legal team and reviewed Hwang’s contract. They have publicly expressed their disappointment with his behavior, calling it unprofessional.
It is believed that the big league offer is the reason why Hwang requested a transfer at the start of the new season. Another Greek media outlet, Sportime, reported that “Hwang In-bum is being watched by Freiburg of the German Bundesliga.” “Freiburg has been watching Hwang since he played for Rubin Kazan and is in the process of signing him,” the outlet explained.
Freiburg is well known in Korea as the club where Jung Woo-young (Stuttgart) played until recently. Kwon Chang-hoon (Suwon Samsung) also spent time in Freiburg, and Lee Ji-han, who helped the team reach the quarterfinals of the U-20 World Cup, is currently pursuing his dream.
Freiburg is a powerhouse in the Bundesliga. They finished fifth last season and qualified for the UEFA Europa League this season. If Hwang In-beom leaves Olympiacos and signs with Freiburg, we could see him play in the European competition.
Hwang has shown that he can play in the big leagues. In his first season with Olympiakos last season, he put on a performance that will be remembered fondly by fans. Playing a total of 40 games, including 32 in the Greek league and five in the Europa League, he proved his worth with five goals and four assists.
Olympiacos fans voted him MVP in a fan poll at the end of the season. Naturally, the big leagues took notice, with Italian Serie A giants Inter Milan and Napoli interested, and Frankfurt and Mönchengladbach in Germany. Freiburg also quietly followed Hwang’s lead.
Hwang was a top midfielder in the Greek league, but he was largely ignored in preseason this summer. He missed every friendly. New manager Diego Martinez seems to be favoring his new signings Vicente Iborra, Sotiris Alexandropoulos, and Jordan Hallsgrove over Hwang. The last time Hwang played a full game was against Norwich City at the end of last month, and even then it was only for a short time as a late substitute.
He then missed the first leg of the third qualifying round of the Europa League against Fenerbahçe on November 11. His complete disappearance from the roster prompted questions from the Greek media, who were understandably curious as the midfielder, who was the MVP of last season, had fallen off the radar overnight.
In this regard, ‘Erz Sport’ reported, “Hwang In-beom was excluded because he demanded a transfer. Olympiakos was surprised because he has been very professional.” However, with the team’s atmosphere of not using Hwang In-bum and Freiburg’s interest in him, all eyes are on the transfer.
For now, Olympiakos is prepared to take legal action against Hwang, who demanded a transfer while he still has time left on his contract. However, there 카지노사이트 is also a big difference of opinion on the length of the contract. Hwang claims that he signed a 1+2-year contract last year and only needs a buyout of about 3 million euros (about 4.3 billion won) to fulfill the first year.
Olympiakos countered that it was a three-year contract from the start and would demand a ransom of more than 10 million euros (approximately 14.5 billion won). To prove its point, it is expected to mobilize the club’s legal team to block Hwang’s transfer.
