Left-back Choi Ji-mook (25), who was selected for Paulo Bentoho in January last year, will leave Seongnam FC and join Busan I-Park.
According to soccer officials, Choi Ji-mook recently agreed to a transfer to Busan.
Seongnam, which was relegated to K League 2 (second division) at the bottom of the K League 1 (first division) in the 2022 season, is releasing a large number of players who can receive high salaries or transfer fees. Choi Ji-mook is a player from the national team who rarely appeared in 스포츠토토 Seongnam recently.
In January 2022, Choi Ji-mook was selected for the A team of coach Paulo Bento, who had a field training in Turkey, and trained. Unfortunately, he did not have his A-match debut, but it was quite surprising that Choi Ji-mook, who had not been represented by age group, was selected as Ben Tuho.
After making his professional debut in Seongnam in 2020, Choi Ji-mook, who played 10 games in the 2020 season, 22 games in the 2021 season, and 23 games in the 2022 season, is a left-footed defender who can be used as a left fullback as well as a left central defender for three backs.
Busan, which finished last season in the K-League 2 by only 1 point from the last-place Jeonnam Dragons, moved forward toward K-League 1 promotion after 3 years by recruiting Choi Ji-mook, who was selected as the national team a year ago.
