Denmark Conquest’ Cho Gyu-seong, “The league that everyone in the five major leagues wants to go to… I have no regrets about going to Denmark.


 Cho Gyu-seong, who is playing very well in the Danish league, said that advancing to the top 5 leagues was a motivation.

The Korean national team, led by coach Jurgen Klinsmann, convened at Paju NFC at 2 p.m. on the 9th. The national team will face Tunisia (29th in FIFA) at Seoul World Cup Stadium on the 13th and Vietnam (95th in FIFA) at Suwon World Cup Stadium on the 17th.

On the 9th, Son Heung-min, Lee Jae-seong, domestic players, and the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games gold medal members (Lee Kang-in, Hong Hyun-seok, Seol Young-woo, and Jung Woo-young) gathered in Paju. Oh Hyun-gyu joined after the convening time on the 9th. In addition, Hwang Hee-chan, Hwang Ui-jo, Kim Min-jae, Cho Gyu-seong, Hwang In-beom, and Park Yong-woo entered Paju on the 10th.

Kyu-Seong Cho is Klinsmann’s signature striker. He left Jeonbuk Hyundai last July and entered the European stage wearing the Danish midtjylland uniform. He immediately took his place at the forefront of the team without any adjustment period. announced his brilliant debut. Cho Gyu-seong scored the winning goal in his debut match, leading his team to victory in their opening match. It was steady. Cho Gyu-seong scored in both the second and third rounds, scoring goals in three consecutive games. For these performances, he was selected in the Team of the Month for July by the Danish Superliga Secretariat.

But August slowed down for a while. Cho Gyu-seong started against Brønby in the 5th round, but was eventually substituted in the 20th minute of the first half after complaining of discomfort due to a hamstring injury. Fortunately, he only missed one game and returned right away.

It started flying again in September. Cho Kyu-sung scored the winning goal against Saudi Arabia during the international match in September, giving Jurgen Klinsmann his first win. After returning to his team, he contributed 1 assist in the 7th round, and scored his 4th league goal against Viborg in the 8th round. In the last round, he scored 1 goal and 1 assist against Odense, contributing to the team’s dramatic win. He scored 6 goals and 2 assists in 13 games in the three months since his arrival in Denmark.

Initially, some fans expressed disappointment over the fact that Cho Gyu-sung was moving to the Danish stage. But Jo Gyu-seong had no regrets at all. He said, “I think it was a 100% good decision. It’s good to play in front of the domestic K League fans, but I thought it was a challenge and took on it. Many people say it’s disappointing because it’s a Danish league, but I have no regrets. I thought it was a step by step and advanced. “I did,” he said.레고토토

Advancement to Europe’s top five leagues is not an empty dream. Cho Kyu-sung has already been linked to Italy’s Serie A Genoa once. Cho Kyu-seong said, “The top five leagues are the leagues that everyone wants to go to. I too have lived with that dream. I think there is no reason to play soccer if you are not motivated. I also dream, have motivation, and take one step at a time. “I think the goal is to do my best.”

We are playing in a two-game home game, and I hope we win. Since there is no home win, the goal is to win in front of many fans because we came from an away win.

There are many fans holding signs with Jo Kyu-sung. What are the benefits of open training?

There is also the point of being able to communicate. It’s good to see only Asians in Denmark, but there are many fans who come to watch the game, which gives me confidence and I want to say thank you.

Lee Han-beom said that Cho Gyu-seong helped him a lot and said, “I served in the military.”

That’s true. (Laughs) I served in the military, so I thought it would be good for the players to experience it, but I proudly won a gold medal. I think I’m going on a field trip for a month.

What is the physical burden? How is your physical condition?

If you let me play in the game, of course I can play. It’s still my first time adjusting to jet lag, so there are some parts that are difficult. I feel like I once again feel how great the overseas hyungs are.

You are doing well right away after going to Denmark. What is the secret?

There is no secret. The first goal was scored quickly and my teammates were all nice, so I adapted quickly.

After scoring against Saudi Arabia in September, he scored again as soon as he returned to the league.

The part he is most confident in is heading. I believe that I can survive and the team can survive only if I utilize my strengths.

There are some fans who express regret over entering Denmark. Do you think entering Europe was a good choice?

I think it was 100% a good decision. It’s great to play in front of domestic K-League fans, but I took on the challenge because I thought it was a challenge. Many people say it’s disappointing because it’s a Danish league, but I have no regrets. I thought it was step by step and advanced.

What is different from the K League?

There isn’t much difference. Denmark also demands physicality. I think the K League was like that too. I think I was able to adapt well in that regard.

Coach Klinsmann is a former striker, and has been consistently selecting three strikers (Cho Kyu-seong, Oh Hyun-gyu, and Hwang Ui-jo) since March. What kind of order are you placing?

In previous convocations, etc., the director requires a physical aspect. I think that’s what makes me different from others. Unlike others, my strengths are that I fight physically, protect the ball, and connect with my teammates, so they tell me to take advantage of those aspects.

Coach Klinsmann’s public opinion is not good. What’s different about him compared to Coach Bento?

The coach does a good job taking care of the players. It’s good that my body is in 100% condition so I can work hard.

The director said that 8 to 10 people have already been selected to go to Qatar on the 9th. Does he think he will be included?

no. Whenever I come to the national team, it’s always a competition, and I don’t know when I’ll be selected, and I don’t think it’s strange if I don’t. I never let down my guard even for a moment.

The national team players are scoring goals in many places. What are your strengths?

As a striker, I am confident not only in scoring goals but also in aerial balls. I think I have the strength to beat my opponent in the physical aspect, get possession of the ball, and connect it to my teammate.

Hong Hyun-seok said that he dreamed of playing in Europe’s top five leagues. There were also rumors that Cho Gyu-seong was also interested in Italy, and

everyone wants to play in the top five leagues. I too have lived that dream. I think there is no reason to play soccer if you don’t have motivation. I think my goal is to dream, be motivated, take one step at a time, and do my best.
