Jeonbuk Lee Ju-yong, who graduated from the national university, and Jeju ‘core’ Jung Woo-jae, successfully traded
According to soccer officials, Jeonbuk Hyundai and Jeju United recently decided to trade two left-back players of the same age.
Jeonbuk already sent Lee Ju-yong on loan to Incheon United last season for one year. However, Lee Ju-yong only played 10 games due to injuries. Although his physical condition is an issue, having only played 26 K-League games over the past three seasons, he is a player whose skills are certain enough to play in both matches in Paulo Bentuho’s away evaluation match held in Europe in 2020.
Jung Woo-jae has been playing in Jeju since the 2019 season and has firmly established himself as the main left wingback. In the 2021 season, he was trusted enough to play in all 38 league games. He was active in 28 games last season, but with this trade, he is expected to compete with Kim Jin-soo, the national team’s main fullback in Jeonbuk, and also play in central defense. 안전놀이터
In a situation where both players had a narrow position in the team due to a cross-trade between left-back fullback players of the same age, Jeonbuk coach Kim Sang-sik and Jeju coach Nam Ki-il preferred the players they recruited, so a dramatic cross-trade was concluded about a week before the opening. .
Jeju United started to reorganize the defense by recruiting Yeon Je-woon and Lim Chae-min, as well as Lee Ju-yong. Jeonbuk also brings in Jung Woo-jae, the best defender in the K-League, and strengthens the depth of the defense, which was pointed out as a weakness last season, to regain the championship.
