Hwang In-beom, linked with Napoli, has returned to Olympiacos.
Olympiacos drew 1-1 with Norschelland (Denmark 1st Division) in a pre-season friendly match held at the Silverstadt Arena in Schwarz, Austria on the 14th (Korean time)메이저놀이터.
Hwang In-beom returned to Europe last summer after signing with Olympiacos. It was a crucial decision made after saying goodbye to Rubin Kazan according to the ‘FIFA Special Clause’ decided when Russia invaded Ukraine. Hwang In-beom continued his challenge on the Greek stage, which was like a barren land.
The result was a great success. Throughout the season, Hwang In-beom played an active role as a key player in Olympiacos’ midfield and perfectly played the role of linking offense and defense. His precise linkages, as well as his sharp shooting ability at times, stood out. The nicknames ‘Computer’ and ‘Machine’ were attached to Hwang In-beom.
He also renewed his European career high. He recorded 9 attack points (5 goals and 4 assists) in all competitions last season, including the league, Greek Cup and UEFA Europa League (UEL). It’s a stat that feels even more great when you think about the limit of the position of the central midfielder.
After the season ended, Hwang In-beom was called up to the Korean national football team led by coach Jurgen Klinsmann. In June, they faced Peru (and El Salvador) in two consecutive A-matches. Although they did not produce the desired results, Hwang In-beom played full-time and led Klinsman
. Hwang In-beom played 45 minutes in the first half and was substituted out after halftime.
After the game, Hwang In-beom appeared on the Olympiacos SNS channel. Hwang In-beom said, “Hello Olympiacos fans. I’m (Hwang) In-beom. We didn’t get the results we wanted, but we’re still working hard to achieve our goals in the upcoming season.”
Currently, Hwang In-beom is linked with Napoli, where his national teammate Kim Min-jae played. Italy’Area Napoli’ said, “Thanks to the interest of President Aurelio De Laurentiis, Naples started looking for an Asian player. According to some sources, they are looking for a compatriot Kim Min-jae in light of their relationship with ‘Upbit (Napoli sponsor)’. Olympia Course midfielder Hwang In-beom is a good player. Chairman De Laurentiis and new director Mauro Meruso will evaluate him.”
Hwang In-bum also leaves all possibilities open. After the A match ended in June, Hwang In-beom said, “If I am given a situation where I can develop myself, I am ready whether it is a transfer or a stay. Last season, the fans gave me a lot of love, so I have to show a better image. I am only thinking of areas that can improve. We will have to wait and see if there are any changes.” Interest in Hwang In-beom, who conquered the Greek stage, began.
