[스포츠서울 | 박준범기자] Hwang Hee-chan (26, Wolverhampton) returned to training.
On the 14th, Wolverhampton posted a picture of Hwang Hee-chan smiling at the training ground along with the text “Hwang Hee-chan wants to come back soon” through the official SNS.
Hwang Hee-chan suffered a right thigh injury while starting the 17th round of the English Premier League (EPL) against Brighton on the 16th of last month. Wolverhampton set early February as the starting point for Hwang Hee-chan’s comeback. As Hwang Hee-chan begins training, there is a possibility that the return clock will be faster. British media ‘Molyneux News’ welcomed it as ‘It seems that light training has begun, but it is definitely good news just to be wearing training clothes outside’.
If Hwang Hee-chan recovers quickly, Paulo Bento’s national football team manager will be relieved of his worries. Heung-Min Son (Tottenham) is also concentrating on recovery from a muscle injury. The national team will have to play the 7th and 8th rounds of the 2022 Qatar World Cup final qualifiers on the 27th and the 1st of next month. “Both Son Heung-min and Hwang Hee-chan are important players who can create an imbalance in their opponents,” Bento told the Korea Football Association on the same day. You have to find another solution. It is a fact that cannot be hidden that the two are important.”
