Technical support issues
Korean Guy's Hwang Hee-chan (Wolverhampton) is the boss every day.
Hwang Hee-chan is getting Arsenal's attention. Spain's As reported on the 20th that Arsenal is showing interest in Korean striker Hwang Hee-chan, who is outstanding in the English Premier League, and Wolverhampton is seeking to renew his contract to block interest in teams showing interest in Hwang Hee-chan.
Prior to this, Deer Athletic said, "Wolverhampton is continuing talks with Hwang Hee-chan over a new contract. I know that negotiations are progressing positively, he said. "Hwang Hee-chan is also satisfied to play under coach Gary O'Neill." The club is also expected to offer improved contract terms as compensation for Hwang Hee-chan's recent performance. If conditions are okay, we can expect to extend the contract,' he said. Deer Athletic mentioned the possibility of Hwang Hee-chan renewing his contract early on, and Hwang Hee-chan, who started the new season with a scary scoring ability, has two years left on his contract at the end of this season. If formal discussions do not begin soon, unexpected situations may arise.'
Hwang Hee-chan left Leipzig, Germany, in the summer of 2021 and wore a Wolverhampton uniform. Hwang Hee-chan and Wolverhampton, who signed a five-year contract, have a contract period until June 2026. There are still about two years and seven months left on the contract. However, Wolverhampton tries to continue his companionship with Hwang Hee-chan with a more active move. This means that he is satisfied with Hwang Hee-chan's performance.
Hwang Hee-chan is doing his best this season. Hwang Hee-chan was selected as Wolverhampton's October Player of the Month on the 14th. Hwang Hee-chan received nearly 45 percent of the vote. Pedro Netu came in second and Craig Dawson came in third. Wolverhampton was named Wolverhampton's player of the month after Hwang Hee-chan had an impressive October. Hwang Hee-chan was selected as the third player of the month this season after Shasa Kalajić and Netu after contributing in all three games in October.
Hwang Hee-chan then scored against Aston Villa. Netu's cross was scored. He turned into a helper against Bournemouth and sent Kalajić a delicate and perfect pass to score the winning goal. Finally, he finished October with another good moment against Newcastle. "I got a pass from Totti Gomes and blew past Dan Burn to score his seventh goal of the season."
Hwang Hee-chan, who sadly missed the Player of the Month last September, was rewarded after a fantastic October. Hwang Hee-chan scored four goals in four league games and one league cup during the month of September. But it fell behind Netu. Netu has scored one goal - three assists in three league games. Hwang Hee-chan received 39.4% of the vote, but unfortunately came in second place behind Netu, who received 54.8%. What's interesting is that Dawson was ranked third at the time. In October, the three players were nominated side by side, only changing their rankings. In other words, Hwang Hee-chan, Netu and Dawson reaffirmed that Wolverhampton's main players.
Hwang Hee-chan played better in October. Against Aston Villa, Bournemouth and Newcastle in October, they all scored attack points and scored two goals and one assist. Even with Netu, the core of the team's attack, missing due to injury, Hwang Hee-chan continued his steady performance and established himself as the core of the team's attack. Hwang Hee-chan started at home against Aston Villa (1-1 draw) on October 8 and scored in the eighth minute of the second half. It was a game with Hwang Hee-chan's "kopy fighting spirit" and concentration toward the goal. Hwang Hee-chan suffered a nosebleed after being hit in the face by Aston Villa Douglas Luiz's elbow while competing for the ball in the second minute of the second half when the score was 0-0. Hwang Hee-chan, who was treated for a long time and blocked his nose, changed his direction from the right side of the goal area to his left foot in the counterattack situation following Pedro Netu's breakthrough on the right side of the goal area. Hwang Hee-chan scored three consecutive goals.
He also played against Bournemouth. Hwang Hee-chan started with the left wing in the away game against Bournemouth (2-1 win) on the 22nd and played full-time, recording the help of the come-from-behind winning goal. Hwang Hee-chan induced his opponent to leave in the 9th minute of the second half, and then scored a come-from-behind winning goal in the 43rd minute of the second half. When Hwang Hee-chan caught it in the penalty arc and gave up a penetration pass, Kalajić kicked it with his right foot in front of the goal area. Hwang Hee-chan scored his first help this season, increasing his offensive point to six goals (5 goals in the regular league, 1 goal in the cup) and one assist. Sopa Score gave Hwang Hee-chan, who succeeded in three shots and three key passes, a rating of 7.4, the fifth in the team.
The match against Newcastle at home on the 29th was even more dramatic. Hwang Hee-chan gave up a penalty kick just before the end of the first half. Hwang Hee-chan was trying to drive the ball forward from the Wolverhampton penalty area, but as the ball touch was momentarily prolonged, he kicked Fabian Shea's ankle, not the ball, and a foul was declared. A penalty was awarded after VAR, and Wilson calmly scored to lead Newcastle again. Hwang Hee-chan made up for his mistake in the 26th minute of the second half. Moments penetrated the right side of the penalty area following Gomes' forward pass. Afterwards, he beat a defender who attempted to tackle with a delicate dribble and accurately stabbed the bottom corner of the near net with a quick left-footed shot. After scoring, Hwang Hee-chan, who was delighted, roared as he slipped all the way to the ground on his knees, and later stood up and performed a ceremony to look far away, wowing home fans. According to the soccer statistics media HUSCOARD.COM, Hwang Hee-chan led the Wolverhampton attack by recording two key passes (passes leading to scoring opportunities) and three dribbles. The media gave Hwang Hee-chan a 7.35 rating.
In particular, he was nominated for the "Goal of the Month" for scoring against Newcastle. The EPL secretariat released eight October goal candidates on its website on the 3rd, including Hwang Hee-chan's equalizer against Newcastle. Hwang Hee-chan, Diogo Dalot (Manchester United), Brian Mbeumo (Brentford), and Jakob Brun Larsen (Burnley) were among the candidates.
Hwang Hee-chan made various records in October. Hwang Hee-chan ranked first in the EPL in goal conversion rate and goal determination. According to soccer statistics company Opta, Hwang Hee-chan ranked first overall with 35% of the goal conversion rate for players who tried to shoot more than 11 times in 11 EPL games this season. The goal conversion rate refers to the percentage of shots that are scored among all shots. Hwang Hee-chan scored six of his 17 shots this season. It was literally a one-shot, one-kill. Hwang Hee-chan opened the scoring against Newcastle, becoming the first Wolverhampton player to score in six consecutive home games. In addition, "Wolverhampton Legend" Derek Dugan made history as a player who scored six goals in 10 games in 50 years after scoring six goals in 10 games. Northern Ireland striker Du Gunn is a legend who scored 123 goals in 323 games for Wolverhampton.
Hwang Hee-chan said, "It's a great honor for me as a Wolverhampton player to have this record. "I want to continue to score a lot in the future," he said. "My score comes from teamwork. "We train really hard to understand each other," he said, adding, "It wasn't a penalty, but my teammates believed in me, and I wanted to do something for them."
Hwang Hee-chan has been busy last seasonI had a season that I did. Hwang Hee-chan, who spent his second season in a Wolverhampton uniform, suffered from frequent hamstring injuries. Hwang Hee-chan, who scored five goals in 30 regular league games in his debut season, played in 27 games and scored three goals this season. If you add one goal recorded in the FA Cup, Hwang Hee-chan's official scoring record is four goals. He recorded three assists, one in the regular league and two in the league cup.
Hwang Hee-chan, who scored the winning goal against Portugal to confirm his advance to the round of 16 at the Qatar World Cup, fell into a swamp of injury and did not show as much as expected. Fortunately, he showed good performance at the end of the season. Hwang Hee-chan, who scored his first goal of the season against Newcastle in March, scored his second goal against Brentford in April, when he was returning from injury. Hwang Hee-chan, who had been gaining momentum with his steady participation, scored his third goal against Everton in May. Coach Julen Lopetegui appointed Hwang Hee-chan whenever he had the opportunity to join the squad despite his injury. Hwang Hee-chan also lived up to that expectation if he was in good physical condition.
Lopetegui, who appointed Hwang Hee-chan, seemed to face a crisis as he left the club. Wolverhampton's financial problems have also been mentioned as a candidate for release. In May, The Sun of England said, "Hwang Hee-chan will leave Wolverhampton this summer." Wolverhampton faced financial fair play (FFP) problems and said he would sell Hwang Hee-chan to balance the club's books. Leeds United's destination was also mentioned, but he withdrew his interest, and Hwang Hee-chan eventually remained in Wolverhampton.
Hwang Hee-chan changed the crisis with his skills. He marked the start of the season by scoring a first goal in two games after the opening. It was the fastest pace since entering the big league. He shot his first goal of the season against Watford in the fourth round in the 2021-2022 season when he wore a Wolverhampton uniform, and in the 2022-2023 season, he reported his first goal in the 27th round away game against Newcastle in the aftermath of injuries. He was the first big leaguer in Europe to score a goal this season.
Hwang Hee-chan, who continued this momentum, scored a goal every game. The masters paid attention to Hwang Hee-chan's strong performance. One of them is Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola. At a press conference a day before the match between Wolverhampton and Manchester City held on the 1st, Guardiola mentioned that Hwang Hee-chan's name was "Korean Guy." Hwang Hee-chan scored the winning goal to beat 'Treble' Manchester City 2-1 in the match. After the match, Hwang Hee-chan was given a new nickname, "Korean Guy." Wolverhampton even used it to make T-shirts.
Hwang Hee-chan said in an interview on the 10th, "It was good to promote Korea," and added, "I think Korea is in that word." I thought it was positive to promote our country. It was good to have an interesting nickname in a situation where good results were made, he said. He also said, "Coach Guardiola may not have thought of my name for a moment," adding, "It was an honor that the coach, who has been at the top of the world for a long time, mentioned me in terms of skills. I also gained confidence," he said.
Prior to this, Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp also praised Hwang Hee-chan's ability, saying, "Good players such as Hwang (Hee-chan) and Shasha Kalajić are threatening enough despite not starting the game."
Hwang Hee-chan continues his momentum in the national team as well. Following the last match against Vietnam, he also scored in the match against Singapore. Hwang Hee-chan, who even receives Arsenal attention, is recording the most brilliant moment of his career.
