Hwang Heechan’s Most Memorable Goal Was Also Recognized

In an interview with SPOTV ahead of the final match against Liverpool, Hwang Hee-chan scored his 10th goal of the season, which he scored against Manchester City and scored against Brentford.

Hwang Hee-chan replied, “I’m happy with all the goals because I think there were still quite a few in the impact this season, but I think the game I won against Manchester City at home was a bit special. And I think the 10th goal in the Premier League was a bit special for me.”

Hwang Hee-chan led Manchester City to a 2-1 victory with a score in the seventh round match at Molineux Stadium in September.

Hwang Hee-chan’s score reminded me of what Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola said before the game, “Korean guy leading the Wolverhampton attack is really good,” and British media began to illuminate Hwang Hee-chan as a “Korean guy.”

In a match against Brentford in the 19th round, he scored his ninth and 10th goals in a row, scoring double-digit goals for the first time since his debut. He is the second Korean player after Son Heung-min and the third in Wolverhampton’s history after Steven Fletcher and Raul Jimenez.

In addition, Hwang Hee-chan scored his 12th goal in the league and his 20th career goal in the Premier League against Manchester City in the 36th round, ranking second in the number of goals scored by Koreans in the Premier League, beyond Park Ji-sung, who had his 19th career goal.

About Park Ji-sung, Hwang Hee-chan said, “He is the biggest reason why I was able to come here (Premier League), and he was my dream and goal, and it was an honor for me to be able to overcome such a great record, and it was a great motivation and a lot of strength as a player. Although I can say that the goal is over, I respect him so much and the record is over, but I’m still following him in many areas and I still want to learn more. I respect him so much and I want to say that I’m so grateful that there is a part that can foster our dreams and motivate us.”

When asked about a memorable game, he said, “I think the game that caught Manchester City (7th round) was a big deal for us as a team. And I think the Tottenham game was one of the big games where we could win and become stronger and gain that confidence.”

Hwang Hee-chan, who finished the first half with his peak performance at the top of the Premier League scoring rankings along with Erling Holan and others, slowed down from the Asian Cup. He was out of the lineup for about two months in February when he collapsed due to a hamstring injury.

When asked about the particularly difficult moment this season, Hwang Hee-chan said, “Of course, it was when I got injured after coming back from the Asian Cup. While I was injured at the time, the team didn’t win many games, and there are some feelings that I felt very sorry for the team players as well. So I think I really prepared hard with the thought of doing better faster and when I returned. In the meantime, thanks to your really good treatment, the treatment came faster than expected. That’s why I think I was able to come back to my team in a better shape. Even after returning, I really focused a little more on winning the team, and I think I worked hard to be that helpful. But looking back, I think the season was not bad overall.”

When asked to send a message to Hwang Hee-chan, who became Wolverhampton ace, he hesitated, saying, “I think this will remain a bit of a dark history… There were situations where I was a little tired due to various things after going to the Asian Cup here and there. Anyway, I did so well in the first half, and I tried to do as well as I always did after that. And the things that I have done well on the best stage. I’m so proud of those parts, and I’m looking forward to doing better and I know that this is not the end, I want to continue to do better, and I know that I will do better, so I hope I will do better.”
