Hwang Hee-chan (26, Wolverhampton), who suffered a hamstring injury, returned to team training.
On the 13th (local time), Wolverhampton released a picture of Hwang Hee-chan training through the club’s official SNS.
In the photo, Hwang Hee-chan is wearing a training suit and smiling brightly while watching the training of his colleagues. Along with the photo, the club wrote, “Hwang Hee-chan could not delay his return any longer.”
Hee-chan Hwang, who joined Wolverhampton on loan last summer, scored four goals in the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2021-22 season, establishing himself as the center of the team.
However, in the 17th round of the EPL match against Brighton on the 16th of last month, he suffered a right thigh muscle injury and his momentum was weakened.
As the severity of the injury was reported to be serious, Hwang Hee-chan could not play for about a month. Local media predicted that Hwang Hee-chan would only be able to return in February.
In this situation, it is confirmed that Hwang Hee-chan has appeared again at the training ground, and it is expected that he will be able to play a comeback match within this month.
Currently, Wolverhampton is 8th in the EPL with 8 wins, 4 draws and 7 losses (28 points). However, he is in need of Hwang Hee-chan as his scoring ability is weak enough to only score 18 goals in 19 matches.
As Hwang Hee-chan joins training, it is expected that he may appear in the match against Brentford as early as the 23rd.
In this case, it is highly likely that he will join Bentuho ahead of the 7th and 8th rounds of the Asian final qualifying rounds for the 2022 Qatar World Cup on the 27th (against Lebanon) and February 1 (the Syrian).
