‘Kookdae MF’ Park Yong-woo transfers from 1st place Ulsan to 2nd place Al Ain in UAE… joins training camp

South Korean national soccer team midfielder Park Yong-woo (29) is headed to the Middle East.

United Arab Emirates (UAE) Pro League club Al Ain announced on Sunday (April 17) that it has signed South Korean midfielder Park Yong-woo, who will join Al Ain’s ongoing training camp in Spain.

Born in 1993, the defensive midfielder made his professional debut with FC Seoul in 2015. Since 2017, he has been with Ulsan Hyundai, where he has developed into one of the top midfielders in the K League. He also completed his military service with Gimcheon Commerce. He was previously called up by Shin Tae-yong’s U-23 national team to compete at the 2016 Rio Olympics, and this year he was called up by Jürgen Klinsmann to make his A-match debut for the national team.카지노

Park’s arrival could be a game-changer in the K League this season. Ulsan boasted a solid midfield thanks to Park Yong-woo as they dominated and stayed on top of the K League 1 table. They have 53 points from 23 games. That’s more than 15 points clear of second-place Pohang Steelers (41), third-place FC Seoul, and fourth-place Jeonbuk Hyundai (37+).

However, the team has recently suffered two consecutive losses. They lost 1-2 to Incheon United and 1-3 against Suwon Samsung. This is their first back-to-back losses of the season. Ulsan has only four losses this season, with two of them coming in the past week. At a time when the team is starting to falter, it has also lost star midfielder Park Yong-woo.

Al Ain finished the 2022-23 season in second place. While the top team in the UAE league qualifies directly for the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Champions League (ACL), the second-placed team goes through the Asian Champions League playoffs.
