Even if they are twisted, there is no such thing as a ‘beautiful farewell’ with Yang Hyun-joon and Kang Won.

Yang Hyeon-jun (21, Gangwon FC) is desperate to advance to Europe. However, a ‘beautiful farewell’ is difficult because of the large difference of opinion with Kangwon over the transfer.
Yang Hyun-joon, who received an offer from Scotland’s prestigious Celtic, has openly expressed his willingness to transfer. Even after the match against Incheon United (0-1 loss) on the 2nd, he said, “If the transfer fee is not enough, I have a desire to go even if it is reduced from my salary. It’s a pity that nothing has been said (yet),” he sighed repeatedly.토토사이트
Yang Hyun-joon, who stood out by posting 8 goals and 4 assists in 36 K-League 1 matches last year, received a transfer offer from Minnesota United of the US Major League Soccer (MLS) after the 2022 season was over. The offer came with the highest transfer fee in K-League history, but Lee Young-pyo, former head of Gangwon Province, recommended Yang Hyun-joon to consider going to the United States and advancing to Europe for his future.
An opportunity to advance overseas came to Yang Hyeon-joon once again. Celtic is also known to have offered a large transfer fee of 2.5 million euros (3.5 billion won). However, Gangwon resolutely shouted ‘remain’. This is because they are in danger of being relegated to 11th out of 12 K-League 1 teams this season. It is the position that Yang Hyun-jun can never be let go before the end of the 2023 season.
The transfer is currently at a standstill. Yang Hyun-joon’s father and agent requested a meeting with Kangwon representative Kim Byung-ji to discuss the transfer, but the meeting did not take place. Meanwhile, Celtic are looking for a new winger. This is why Yang Hyeon-joon openly confessed his cramped inner feelings.
The relationship between Yang Hyeon-joon and Kang Won is twisted beyond repair. Yang Hyun-joon, who made his professional debut in 2021, grew up receiving opportunities to compete in Gangwon. Gangwon also caught two rabbits in terms of performance and box office thanks to Yang Hyeon-joon, who has risen as a ‘star’. However, as Yang Hyun-joon recently openly revealed his desire to transfer, as his poor performance continued, many fans who supported him are also voicing criticism.
Gangwon coach Yoon Jung-hwan said after the defeat against Incheon, “I hope the players who did well last year will show more dedication to the team. It should be an atmosphere where those players (dedicated) and other players follow suit. It seems that there is no such thing now,” he openly criticized.
Looking at the current situation, Yang Hyeon-joon and Kang Won’s ‘romance’ tends to flow toward an ending that leaves only scars. It is difficult for Yang Hyeon-joon, who has already opened his mind, to show his performance in Gangwon as much as he did before. Even if Kangwon sent Yang Hyeon-jun, bitterness remained on the other hand, and it was an ambiguous situation to keep the player who had left his heart. The conflict is getting deeper and deeper. Certainly, ‘Beautiful Breakup’ seems to have disappeared from the scenario.
