It is predicted that national striker Hwang Eui-jo (31, Olympiacos) will return to professional soccer K-League 1 for a while.
An official from FC Seoul said to Yonhap News on the 2nd, “It is true that we are negotiating with Hwang Eui-jo.”
Hwang Eui-jo, who moved to Nottingham Forest (England) from Girondin Bordeaux (France) in August of last year, immediately transferred to Olympiacos under the same owner, but is struggling without finding a place.
