Week listings and previews for our Korean Players Abroad. Firstly good news, finally Ryu Seung-Woo gets some playing time at club level. He was later subbed on at his new Bundesliga 2 club Arminia Bielefeld. We have some exciting games this weekend, FC Porto vs Benfica, Tottenham Hotspur’s vs Manchester City and Augsburg vs Bayern Munich. Which games will you be watching this weekend?
I expect Suk Hyun-Jun to either be benched or start this week against Benfica.
Yun Suk-Young played 90 minutes in a friendly game mid-week I really hope this is a sign he will get some league playing time. I expect him to be benched this week against Fulham.
Wow! I don’t know what happening with Park Joo-Ho right now but he is not even making the squad list these last couple of weeks. Park has to step up his game if he wants to stay with the team. I expect Park to either be out of the squad list this week or make reserves.
Sad news, Hoffenheim to lose another manager. It has been said Hoffenheim’s current manager Huub Stevens will be stepping down due to a heart condition. This is not looking good for Hoffenheim and Kim Jin-Su as they are currently in a relegation zone battle. Kim Jin-Su didn’t start last week, but I expect him to start this week against Werder Bremen.
I am so happy for Lee Chung-Yong, he started last week against Swansea City. Finally, he is getting some recognition. I expect him to either start or be in reserves against Watford FC this week.
Swansea City announced that Ki Sung-Yueng is ready to return after his concussion. Swans are desperate to gain some dropped points, so I expect Ki to start this week against Southampton.
Tottenham are on fire right now, they are second on the EPL table. Congratulations to them, I expect Son Heung-Min to either start or be benched this week against Manchester City. This will be a challenging game for both teams as are they both hungry to win. The game will be in the Spurs favour though, as City is facing some injury problems.
Augsburg vs Bayern Munich, this will be a very important game to both teams. Hong Jeong-Ho will definitely have to step up his game. But Hong is always lucky against Bayern so I expect him to do well.
Apparently Ji Dong-Won is suffering from some knee problems, I don’t know if he will start this week against Bayern Munich.
Koo Ja-Cheol being a vital member for Augsburg, I expect him to start against Bayern Munich in the Bavarian Derby.
