Koreans Abroad Weekend Schedule and Midweek Recap

(photo via theguardian.com)


By Korean Footballers Abroad

Big rumor of Son going to Tottenham making the rounds this morning but at "publish" time, no confirmation so I'll leave him on Leverkusen schedule for now (and doubt he'd make weekend squad even if it did go through).  Not sure I approve but Leverkusen is no lock for Champions League, might need money after settling a bankruptcy situation with former sponsor for 10M euros, and his stock has been falling with mostly mediocre performances post Asian Cup.

And rumors of Park Joo Ho to reunite with Tuchel at Dortmund also increasing again.  Not sure he's willing to go to be option B at LB and having to fight to start but Europa League and Tuchel might be hard to turn down.  I also think that he'd have a good chance of winning LB spot.  I'll leave him with Mainz as well.

Hong Jeong Ho - Should start after another strong performance

Ji Dong Won - Will Weinzierl like Ji's increasing sharpness or be disappointed by the lack of scoring touch?  I expect a bench role for him... the question is if he gets on the pitch.

Kim Jin Su - He should get the start but maybe he might get a bench spot after doing ok but not excelling.

Koo Ja Cheol - I'd expect a bench role for him after Jairo's good performance last week.  Hopefully he gets on faster than garbage time.

Park Joo Ho - He was excellent last week and should start again but he was benched the week prior after the same so we'll see.

Lee Chung Yong - He scored midweek and all reports were that he played well for all 120 minutes of the cup match.  His goal was really well taken, juking out a defender and slotting the ball into the corner of the goal.  That said, still a logjam out wide at Crystal Palace, so I expect bench for him.

Yun Suk Young - He was reported to be ready for reserve match but he was left off.  Perhaps he finally is fit but I'd expect a bench role to start for now.

Suk Hyun Jun - He had a spectacular game with two goals and an assist soon after being selected for KNT for the first time in a while.  One goal was ridiculous, scoring from long distance with a curving rocket.  He should start.

Ryu Seung Woo - Maybe if Son goes, he'll get a chance to at least be in the squad and/or come in as a late sub.

Son Heung Min - He was sick and was out of form prior, so if he hasn't moved, maybe he starts off on the bench.

Ki Sung Yueng - Ki played 80 and was reportedly sharp if not brilliant.  Might another match this weekend be too much too soon?  We'll have to see what Monk has in his mind for tactical setup but I expect him to at least make the bench if not start.
