K-League 1 Incheon United announced on the 10th that they had recruited winger Gerso (32), who was active in Jeju.
Zerso, a dual citizen of Guinea-Bissau and Portugal, has been active in Portugal starting with Académica Coimbra in 2010, and since 2017 has played as a main player for four seasons at Sporting Kansas City in the American Professional Football (MLS).
Wearing a Jeju uniform in 2021 and stepping on the K-League stage, he stood out in the first year by scoring 5 goals and 2 assists in 32 K-League 1 games. 안전놀이터
In the 2022 season, he played solidly, scoring 8 goals and 7 assists in 37 league appearances.
Zerso received 1.7 billion won last year and ranked first among domestic and foreign players in terms of annual salary, which became a hot topic.
However, there were also evaluations that his performance was disappointing compared to his ransom.
In the meantime, I wondered if he would perform well in Incheon as the ‘2022 Salary King’.
The Incheon club said, “Jerso’s main position is the left winger, but he uses both feet well enough to play on the right side.” Coach Cho Seong-hwan said, “He is a good player for football.”
He added, “With the joining of the K-League top winger Gerso, I gained great confidence in challenging the first Asian Football Confederation Champions League (ACL) stage.”
Zerso said, “I’m excited to challenge the K-League and the Asian stage with Incheon. I want to melt into the team as soon as possible and maximize my strengths to give pleasure to the most passionate Incheon fans in the league.”
Zerso will immediately join the Incheon field training in Chiang Mai, Thailand from the 3rd.
