Weekend review for our Korean Players Aboard. Firstly, congratulations to Park Joo-Ho and Borussia Dortmund for qualifying for the 2016-17 Champions League season. With a win against Werder Bremen and Schalke losing against Ingolstadt, Dortmund secures their Champions League ticket for next season. Park Joo-Ho will be getting a taste of Champions League football very soon. There has been a lot of issues with our Korean Players Aboard, as you can see below 5 of our Korean Players Aboard have gotten 0’ league playing time this week. With our Koreans not getting enough league playing time, this has been a big concern for Korean national coach Uli Stielike. With our aces Ki Sung-Yueng and Son Heung-Min also struggling on getting league playing time. Congrats to Koo Ja-Cheol for scoring his 8th league goal in Augsburg, he is currently their top scorer.

Ki Sung-Yueng was benched this week but was an unused sub. Fans are quite worried about his declining form at Swansea.
Like Ki Sung-Yueng, Lee Chung-Yong was also an unused sub.
Ji Dong-Won is currently injured so he was excluded from the squad list this week.
Koo Ja-Cheol scores his 8th league goal for Augsburg, he is on fire this season. Unfortunately, Koo received another yellow card this week which means he be miss the next game against Werder Bremen.
