‘The highest transfer fee in the club’s history’   Fortunately for Zvez… Hwang In-beom’s extraordinary determination: “I’m looking forward to UCL, I want to face Manchester City.”

] Hwang In-beom (26), who joined Crvena Zvezda (Serbia), shared his thoughts on joining the team.

On the 14th (Korean time), Zvezda announced Hwang In-beom’s press conference on joining the team through the club’s official website. According to the club, Hwang In-beom signed a four-year contract with Zvezda and was given jersey number 66. Hwang In-beom, who announced the news of his contract with Zvezda on the 5th,토토사이트 joined the Korean national team for the A match.

Zvezda, a prestigious Serbian club, was sincere in recruiting Hwang In-beom. According to local media, Hwang In-beom’s transfer fee was 5 million euros (about 7 billion won). This is the highest transfer fee in Zvezda history.

In the joining interview, Hwang In-beom said, “Unlike the stadium, I am a little nervous about the interview. I am happy to play in front of fantastic fans. I am grateful to Zvezda. I arrived in Belgrade last night. I think my wife will like it here too.”

Hwang In-beom, who joined Zvezda, expressed his expectations of participating in Europe’s best club competition. He said, “The UEFA Champions League (UCL) is one of the big reasons I came to Zvezda. As a soccer player, it is your dream to play in the world’s best club competition. I am ready to let my fans know about me. The Champions League.” “Every game is difficult. I’m happy to play against a big European club like Manchester City. I’m not afraid of any team. We can win,” he said.

Zvezda was included in Group G of the 2023-24 UEFA Champions League. They will face defending champion Manchester City (England), RB Leipzig (Germany), and Young Boys (Switzerland) for a ticket to the round of 16. As he is a talent targeted by Italian and German clubs, it seems likely that In-beom Hwang will step onto the UCL stage.

He also shared his honest feelings about the burden. Hwang In-beom said, “Feeling pressure can actually be a good thing. Whether or not I have the best contract in the club’s history doesn’t affect me. I just want to go out on the field and prove it. I can handle the pressure,” and added, “I feel more burdened by the club’s emblem than the transfer fee.” He praised the club’s reputation.

It’s another new challenge. Hwang In-beom, who played for K League 1 Daejeon Citizens (now Daejeon Hana Citizens), chose his first overseas club move to Vancouver in Canada in 2019. Hwang In-beom, who has continued to develop by joining the national team, has increasingly raised expectations as he heads to Russian big club Rubin Kazan in 2020.

An unexpected situation caught up with me. Early last year, when Russia invaded Ukraine, Russian teams, including Rubin Kazan, were expelled from FIFA and UEFA. The Russian economy also became unstable. There were no conditions to focus solely on soccer. Hwang In-beom quickly looked for a new team. He eased his worries by signing a short-term loan contract with FC Seoul of the K League 1.

The level of Hwang In-beom, a starter for the national team, was extraordinary. Hwang In-beom, who briefly returned to the domestic stage, proved his class by showing off his outstanding game coordination ability. Afterwards, Hwang In-beom moved to Olympiacos in Greece in July.

The Greek stage was narrow for Hwang In-beom. He quickly adapted to the league and emerged as a top midfielder. He was selected as a key midfielder in the 2022-23 season, appearing in 40 games and scoring 5 goals and providing 4 assists. He was recognized for his outstanding performance by being named Olympiacos Player of the Year.

However, things did not end well with Olympiacos. During the transfer process, a conflict arose between Hwang In-beom and the club. Big leagues such as Germany and Italy showed interest in signing Hwang In-beom, but Olympiacos turned it down.

According to local media such as Greece, Hwang In-beom’s side was known to have signed a 1+2 year contract with Olympiakos. Therefore, it was argued that Hwang In-beom’s buyout was 3 million euros (about 4.5 billion won). However, since Olympiacos signed an initial three-year contract, it is reported that they only want a transfer fee of more than 10 million euros (about 14.5 billion won).

Due to the complicated situation, Hwang In-beom was unable to play in the pre-season tour. Olympiacos fans also criticized Hwang In-beom through social networking services (SNS).

The transfer saga is over. Hwang In-beom took on a new challenge after successfully joining Serbia’s Zvezda.
