Even with a crazy mix of things going on– Ji Dong Won’s transfer to FC Augsburg and settling the Asian Cup squad– let’s look at other (crazy EPL scheduling) events going on:[table “” not found /]
*UPDATE ON YUN: He won’t be playing in this Friday’s match against Arsenal. West London Sport reported that Yun will be out for up to six weeks because of ligament damage in his ankle. QPR’s also considering bringing in a left-back during next month’s transfer window.
This is the boxing day schedule in England, the start of the insane festive season flurry of games (Sunday includes another round of fixtures)!
Last Saturday Yun Suk-Young was subbed out against West Brom after his ankle injury forced the change in the 29th minute. Harry Redknapp revealed that it’s a minor ankle twist, and he’s hopeful that Yun is available for the clash with Arsenal.
The break for Bundesliga teams gives Son Heung Min, Kim Jin Su, Park Joo Ho, and Koo Ja Cheol some breathing room to gear up for the Asian Cup, and it’s a chance for Ji Dong Won and Hong Jeong Ho to get integrated with F.C. Augsburg and play in some local friendlies.
Switching gears to the Asian Cup squad: if you’re curious, read about Lee Jung-Hyup’s own reaction to getting called to the team– you’ll hear a bit from the coaches as well. Also, Ki Sung Yueng understandably has mixed emotions about heading to Australia just after getting into a solid season at Swansea City.
