Striker Hwang Ui-jo, who joined FC Seoul in the professional football K League 1, continued to wear number 16, which he used in the national team.
On the morning of the 9th, Seoul announced the team number for the 2023 season through its official channel토토사이트. Hwang Eui-jo, who confirmed his move to Seoul earlier this month, will carry on the number 16 in his national team. It is known that midfielder Baek Sang-hoon was originally considering number 16, but Hwang Eui-jo kept the original number 35.
Except for his debut season, Hwang Eui-jo used number 16 all the time in Seongnam, the national team, and the Asian Games national team. He wore number 11 at Gamba Osaka and number 18 at Girondang Bordeaux, but number 16 is a symbolic number for him.
Former and incumbent national team members Ki Sung-yong and Na Sang-ho of Seoul will play with the same number as last season, number 6 and 7, respectively. The main striker, Ilyuchenko, is also unchanged with the number 90. Ji Dong-won, who is aiming for a comeback, wore the number 10, the symbol of the ace, this season as well.
Kang Seong-jin, the ‘future of the club’, took the number 11, which lost its owner due to Cho Young-wook’s military enlistment. Kang Seong-jin, who boasts his excellent technique and sharp left-footed kick, plans to play an active role with a number representing a side striker. Kwon Wan-kyu, who joined Seoul this season, will wear No. 3, Im Sang-hyeop No. 14, and Kim Kyung-min, Lee Si-young, Willian, and Park Soo-il will wear No. 19, No. 22, No. 94, and No. 99, respectively. Center back Lee Han-beom also changed his number to number 4.
