We are announcing the overseas field training of Daejeon Hana Citizen, a professional football team that has been promoted to the first division.
Today, we met the new players who joined the team in Thailand.
Daejeon is predicting a big success in the 1st division by recruiting proven resources on both sides of the air and defense.
This is reporter Park Yeon-sun.
Daejeon’s first signing was K-League 2 top scorer Yoo Kang-hyun.
He was responsible for half of Chungnam Asan FC’s goals last season with 19 goals, and became the top scorer for the first time in four years as a domestic player. [ Soundbite

[Soundbite] Oh Jae-seok/Daejeon Hana Citizen Defender : “The atmosphere in the team is really good, so I think this role will be important as we applaud the players, accompany them, and stand at the forefront in difficult times.”]
In 2019, he recruited defender Kim Hyun-woo, who was the main player in the under-20 World Cup runner-up held in Poland, to fill the gap left by Kim Jae-woo. [ Soundbite
] Kim Hyun-woo/Daejeon Hana Citizen Defender : “I think (advantages) are build-up and fast feet for a defender, so I’m thinking of doing well in the role the coach wants me to play.”
We are looking forward to more recruits as well.
It is expected that Daejeon Hana Citizen will be able to demonstrate its competitiveness in K-League 1 as newcomers join the promoted squad to fill in its weaknesses.
