Amano, a new foreign player at Jeonbuk Hyundai, corrected some errors in the press conference regarding his transfer background to Jeonbuk.
On the afternoon of the 12th, Amano met with reporters at the 2023 K-League Winter Field Training Media Camp at the Jeonbuk Clubhouse in Wanju-gun, Jeonbuk. On this day, 바카라 Amano was the player who drew the most attention from the media who visited the scene.
It was because of Director Hong’s remarks the day before. Director Hong claimed at a press conference held at the Ulsan Clubhouse on the 11th that Amano suddenly changed his mind and moved to Jeonbuk even after agreeing to join the 2023 season after the end of the 2022 season. At the same time, he directly hit Amano, saying, “It’s the worst Japanese player I know.” As director Hong publicly shot Amano at an official event, which was unusual, there was a situation where Amano had to explain this.
In response, Amano expressed regret for Hong’s remarks and said, “We used to talk about contracts from last summer, but after returning to Japan, there was no formal offer from Ulsan.” However, right after the press conference, Amano tried to correct it through Jeonbuk Hyundai and the Korea Professional Football Federation, claiming that there was an error in his remarks.
According to this, Amano said, “It’s not that there was no offer from Ulsan. An offer came from Ulsan in mid-November. It was two weeks after I returned to Japan. But at that time, I was already inclined to Jeonbuk.”
Through the press conference, Amano seemed to feel that there were various misunderstandings in the process of moving to Jeonbuk, and he really actively explained it. To sum up, it is true that Amano tried to stay in Ulsan, and it is also true that there was a rapport with the staff including manager Hong during the season. However, there was no official move until the end of the season, and it seems that Jeonbuk’s mind was tilted as Jeonbuk actively engaged in negotiations at that time.
