Weekend listings and previews for our Korean Players Abroad. Congratulations to Park Joo-Ho and Borussia Dortmund for making the finals of the DFB Pokal. They won Hertha Berlin 3-0 in the Semi Finals and will be facing Bayern Munich in the finals in Berlin. Hopefully Borussia Dortmund can carry a trophy this year. Unfortunately, Park Joo-Ho didn’t play today as he was excluded from the squad list. Like Jinseok, I have given up on this season too. Last season (2014-15) was incredible I just wish this season will end quickly. Apart from Son Heung-Min and Lee Chung-Yong all our players are playing away games this week. Match to watch this week: FC Porto vs Academica. What will you be watching this week?
|Watford (FA Cup Semi-Final)
Park Joo-Ho was excluded from the squad list today against Hertha Berlin but was in the reserves last week against Hamburg. I expect him to make a bench appearance this week against Stuttgart. Maybe he will get subbed on later as I expect Borussia Dortmund to make a lot of rotations to rest their players.
Koo Ja-Cheol was the only Korean Players Abroad who played full 90 minutes last week. Kind of surprising that he was the only player who played a full league game. I expect him to start again against Wolfsburg. Augsburg really needs a win to stay out of the relegation zone.
Ji Dong-Won is still injured.
I don’t know why Hong Jeong-Ho was benched last week. He was subbed on later in the game but only played for 5 minutes. I expect him to start or make bench this week against Wolfsburg.
As Suk Hyun-Jun is the second striker at Porto he hasn’t been getting enough minutes which demonstrates his declining form. He was a unused sub last week. I expect him to make the reserves again this week.
Kim Jin-Su is currently suffering from a thigh injury, this is why he has been missing training and only participating in individual training. I expect him to either be out of the squad list this week or make the reserves.
Lee Chung-Yong started today against Manchester United but was subbed out early. I expect him to make a bench appearance in the FA Cup Semi Final’s against Watford this week.
Son Heung-Min was subbed on in injury time last week against Stoke City. He should make bench this week.
