At the Seoul World Cup press conference held at the Seoul World Cup Stadium on the 8th,

Lingard said, “I am very excited and looking forward to it.

“It is a big new challenge for me, and I have come to Korea to accept it,” he said.

“It is a new chapter in my life, and I will do my best to bring joy and laughter to the fans in Korea and Seoul.”

English Premier League (EPL) Lingard, who played more than 200 games for Manchester United (Man Utd) and participated in the World Cup as a member of the England national team,

raised expectations early this month when rumors of him advancing to the K-League were raised through British media reports,

and his decision to join Seoul was officially announced this morning.

He is a member of the ‘Seonggol’ youth team and played for the England national team until 2021,

including the 2018 Russia World Cup.

He is the most famous player in the history of the K-League, which is celebrating its 41st anniversary.

He, who has never left an English club, including Manchester United,

where he spent the most time in his career, spent the 2022-2023 season at Nottingham Forest in the EPL and was said to have received offers from Europe or the Middle East,

but chose Seoul, which was unfamiliar to him in Korea.

He appeared in a navy blue hooded zip-up and beige jogger pants at the press conference attended by about 100 reporters.

Before the start, he changed into the uniform he received from Seoul CEO Yeo Eun-joo and expressed his anticipation with a relaxed smile.

Lingard said, “At other clubs, the details of the negotiations were only exchanged verbally,

but Seoul prepared everything in writing and showed passion by coming all the way to Manchester to check my physical condition.”

He added, “I made a decision at that moment and did not consider other clubs.”

“I didn’t,” he explained.

He continued, “I’ve heard a lot about Korea and the K-League before,

but now that I’ve come to Seoul, I’m studying more and getting to know the culture, etc.”

He added, “I think the league can develop further and advance globally.

We can do this.” “It will have a role,” he said.

“I haven’t been out much yet, but my first impression of Seoul is that it’s gorgeous and grand,” he said.

“There’s no big problem adapting to the new environment.

“I’m excited and looking forward to starting a new career,” he said with a smile.

It is clear that he is a world-class player, but it is true that there are concerns about his physical condition and performance as he has been without a team for about half a year since his contract with Nottingham ended,

but Jesse Lingard expressed confidence that he has been in good shape, saying, “I am aware of this.” It seemed.

He said, “I knew that I would find a team and sign a contract by January,

so I trained twice a day with a personal trainer in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE) to improve my physical condition.

I am doing everything to manage myself as a player, including exercise, diet, and abstaining from alcohol.”

He said, “I can sufficiently prepare my body until the opening of the K-League (March 1).”

He continued, “I have a dream I want to achieve in Seoul, and I want to be on the field as soon as possible.

My goal is to lift the trophy and win.

I have personal goals as well, but first, I will focus on helping the team get 3 points and win.”

There were doubts as to whether he would be able to focus on soccer in Korea as he is interested in various fields such as fashion and e-sports and also engages in business activities,

but Lingard declared, “Getting back to the stadium and playing as soon as possible was the top priority for me.”

He said, “Soccer and personal business are separate things.

The most important thing to me is soccer, and I came because I can play and contribute to the game.

For now, I will only focus on soccer.”

Lingard, who received a great welcome from Incheon International Airport,

where he arrived on the afternoon of the 5th to sign a contract with Seoul,

specifically mentioned the fans several times at the press conference and waited to meet them at the stadium.

“I received many gifts from fans at the airport, and I was very grateful for the love.

Even now, when I go around and ask for photos, etc. from fans, I respond with gratitude.”

He added, “The fans seem really passionate, and I look forward to meeting them as soon as possible.”

“I’m doing it,” he said.

At the end of the press conference, he volunteered his remarks and said separately,

“I am looking forward to meeting the ‘Guardians’ (Seoul Supporters) fans,

and I hope to see them at the stadium as soon as possible.” 스포츠 토토사이트
