He appeared in 20 games this season and recorded 11 offensive points (9 goals, 2 assists).
Lee Hyeon-joo, who went through Pocheol Middle School and Pocheol High School under the K-League Pohang’s youth team, is an offensive midfielder who has played the role of an ace. He also has experience in selecting national teams by age, such as under 17 (U-17).
Munich, which brought Lee Hyun-joo from Pohang on loan for a year in January of last year, decided to fully recruit him in August of that year, saying, “I was convinced by Lee Hyun-joo.”
In September of last year, he was called by head coach Hwang Seon-hong and was also named on the national team list preparing for the 2024 Paris Olympics.
He was selected for the Olympic team again during the A match (match between national teams) in March and was set to visit Qatar, but as announced by the club, it is expected that it will be difficult to play an active part in the national team if it is inevitable to leave.
The Olympic team, led by coach Hwang, will participate in the Doha Cup U-22 friendly competition to be held in Doha, Qatar, starting on the 23rd.
