Uhm Won-sang (Ulsan Hyundai), who was injured and returned home early after being knocked down by China’s Shaolin Soccer, is making progress in his recovery, much to the relief of Hwang Sun-hong, who is preparing for the Asian Games.
Uhm Won-sang’s agent revealed the status of his foot on social media on Feb. 2. Uhm suffered an ankle injury on March 15 while playing against China as part of the Asian Games U24 team led by Hwang Sun-hong.
In the first match against the Chinese Asian Games team at Jinhua Stadium in Zhejiang, China, Uhm Won-sang came on as a second-half substitute and scored two goals. Chung Woo-young (Freiburg) then scored a consolation goal to lead Korea to a 3-1 victory.
However, Hwang was not all smiles after the victory. In the 20th minute of the second half, Uhm Won-sang twisted his ankle when an opposing defender fell and fell to the ground.
The medical staff rushed to his aid, but it was deemed impossible for him to continue playing, so he was immediately substituted and taken to the hospital for examination.
She hoped it wasn’t too serious, but unfortunately, after an MRI scan, she was diagnosed with damage to the outer and inner triangular ligaments of her right ankle. The team was scheduled to play their second game against China on the 19th, but Uhm Won-sang was unable to play and immediately returned home.
About a month after the injury, her agent revealed the status of her right foot, giving fans an idea of how far she has come in her recovery.
The agent posted a comparison of two photos. The one on the left was taken shortly after the injury, as the ankle looked serious to the naked eye.
The photo on the right, which is believed to be her current ankle, shows her looking much better than before and reassures fans that she is on the road to recovery.
“Don’t worry, he’s very resilient,” his agent said, indicating that his return is not far off.
Born in 1999, the young winger has been in peak form for defending champions and current K League 1 leaders Ulsan, scoring three goals and providing three assists in 18 appearances this season.
Before the World Cup in Qatar last year, the national team’s coach, Paulo Bento, took a picture of him and said he was “worried” about him.온라인바카라
Uhm has been performing so well for club and national team that we’re excited to see what he can do at the Asian Games in Hangzhou, China in September.
As he recovers from his injuries, expectations are high for a third straight Asian Games men’s soccer title.
