Uhm Ji-seong was replaced at halftime in the 17th round of the ‘Hana 1 Q K League 1 2023’ home game against Suwon held at the Gwangju Soccer Stadium on the 7th, leading 0-1, and was substituted out after 11 minutes due to injury. He suffered a leg injury while running into the opponent’s penalty box to win the ball. Umji-seong, who continuously checked the injured area, returned to the ground after receiving a simple treatment. However, he collapsed in his seat complaining of excruciating pain. Gwangju coach Lee Jeong-hyo hurriedly put in Kim Han-gil. According to a Gwangju official, Um Ji-seong sat on a bench and shed tears.
2023 is an important year for Uhm Ji-seong, a third-year pro. He hoped to open the way to the European stage of his dreams by performing his best in the K-League 1. It was reported that a Celtic official visited the Gwangju Stadium to check on Umji-seong during the Gangwon match last April. Gwangju Mayor Kang Ki-jeong posted a picture of a conversation with two foreigners on personal SNS, saying, “EPL officials are also watching our players.” An official in the domestic soccer world hinted that they were not from the EPL, but from Scotland’s prestigious Celtic. Um Ji-seong was excluded from the Gangwon match due to injury and rotation policy.
Um Ji-seong broke the long goal silence through the game against Pohang on the 3rd and raised his form. However, on the 6th, he was excluded from the list of the Hangzhou Asian Games national team for a friendly game in China, and an unexpected injury came a day later. Long-term injuries can make it difficult to participate in the Asian Games that begin in September. I wonder if there were many times when the game did not go the way I wanted this season, and I even came to an injury, and a lot of emotions crossed my mind.
Coach Lee Jeong-hyo expressed regret after the match, which was won 2-1 with Thomas’ dramatic goal, saying, “I’ll have to check it out, but it seems like a big injury. I was on crutches.” Teammate Jeong Ho-yeon said, “(Eom) Ji-seong was struggling so I couldn’t talk to him.” Um Ji-seong plans to conduct a detailed examination of the injured area today (8th).
