Oh Hyeon-kyu (22, Celtic),바카라 who made his first start after moving to Scotland, received stormy praise from the local media.
On the 19th (Korean time), England’s 67th Hale Hale said, “Celtic’s Maeda Daizen and Jota had a busier day than Oh Hyun-kyu in terms of touch and build-up. He connected to him and helped him run around him. Oh Hyun-gyu has enough physical strength to play his role,” he praised.
“It is too early to make an accurate judgment on Oh Hyun-gyu, but he continues to show positive scenes. He is sharp, smart and has excellent physicality. More can be expected,” he highly praised.
Oh Hyun-kyu started as a front-line striker in the home game against Evertin and helped the team win 4-0. While he played until the 27th minute of the second half, he failed to shoot a single shot, but he focused on providing chances with lively and dedicated play. He also had good ratings. Whoscored.com, a soccer statistics site, gave Oh Hyun-kyu an average rating of 6.9 and Foot Mob a rating of 7.1.
Oh Hyun-kyu scored his debut goal in the Scottish Cup round of 16 match against St. Mirren on the 12th. He seems to be getting a little bit of trust by getting the chance to be selected. Oh Hyeon-gyu has a lot to do since the main striker Kyogo Furuhashi is injured.
Legend Neil McCann, who played for the Scotland national team, also told the Daily Record, “Transfer student Hyungyu Oh is a powerful presence. I’m not trying to compare him to Chris Sutton or Hartson, but he has a similar style. He wants to bump into opponent defenders and figure out where they are. You can also bounce it off using ,” he praised.
In addition, McCann said, “The key is that Oh Hyun-gyu keeps in contact with the opponent.” “Through this action, you can catch the opponent’s defender. Thanks to this, your teammates will have a chance. I know where to play and pass like this. Oh Hyun-kyu just wants the ball to come into the penalty box. He brought in a different type of player than the existing players. He always knows where the opponent is defending.”
