Bull’ Hwang Hee-chan (27, Wolverhampton) collapsed.
Wolverhampton beat Liverpool 3-0 in the 22nd round of the Premier League in the 2022-2023 season held at Moline Stadium in Wolverhampton, England at 0:00 am (Korean time) on the 5th. With this victory, Wolverhampton jumped to 15th place with 5 wins, 5 draws and 11 losses, and 20 points.
‘Liverpool Killer’ Hwang Hee-chan scored the opening goal in the 5th minute of the first half. After subtly penetrating between the opposing centre-back and full-back, he tried a cut-back pass, and the ball was hit by Joel Matip and deflected, leading to an own goal.
Afterwards, Hwang Hee-chan continued to harass the Liverpool defense with aggressive backspace attacks and reckless dribbling. However, a sudden injury caught his ankle. Hwang Hee-chan, who was running like a bull, suddenly grabbed the back of his right thigh while running fast in the 39th minute of the first half and went limp.
Hwang Hee-chan, who fell on the field, hit the ground with his fist several times and could not hide his resentment. Eventually he was replaced by Adama Traore. A hamstring injury that plagued him at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar is also suspected.
Wolverhampton home fans comforted Hwang Hee-chan as he left the stadium with a standing ovation. Coach Hulen Lopetegui also hugged and patted him. Hwang Hee-chan, who boasted the best condition throughout the first half, is all the more regrettable. 먹튀검증
Even the BBC couldn’t hide its sadness. The media noted, “Oh no!” and “Hwang Hee-chan sprinted toward the ball and fell down immediately. He fell to the ground and was in pain. The medical staff signaled that he could no longer run.” .
The media then added, “It’s a big blow to both Hwang Hee-chan and Wolverhampton. He was replaced with an injury right before halftime. He dug into the space behind the fullback and scored the opening goal.”
