Hwang Hee-chan’s team Wolverhampton Wanderers reported an interview with its striker Matheus Cunha on the 8th (Korea Standard Time) on the club’s official website.
Cunha left the Atletico Madrid through the winter transfer market in January 2023 and wore a Wolverhampton uniform. It was a loan transfer at the time, but he became a Wolverhampton player before the opening of the 2023-2024 season.
In particular, Cunha accumulated assists by directly helping Hwang Hee-chan score in the match against Manchester City on September 30 and against Burnley on the 6th. Recently, the Wolverhampton team tasted Korean food with Hwang Hee-chan. In this “Korean Food Mukbang,” which was released on the YouTube channel “British Man” last month, Wolverhampton players ate Korean street food such as fish cake, rice cake bok, and fried food with Hwang Hee-chan.
Wolverhampton released another video on the club’s official social media on the 8th, and this time a scene of eating meat with ssam vegetables was revealed. In the video, Hwang Hee-chan also expressed his extraordinary affection by making a ssam for Cunha himself.
In an interview delivered by the club, Cunha said, “Chani (Hwang Hee-chan’s nickname) is a really good guy. We always talk to each other and we are both from RB Leipzig. Since I headed to Leipzig after he left, there is no overlapping period, but instead we both talk about players we played together as teammates.”
Cunha said, “I think my relationship with Hwang Hee-chan is really good,” adding, “I’m always exposed to things related to Korea here. Channi calls me in and asks me to join him all the time. I like learning, so I like doing these activities with Channi.” 토토사이트
He recently revealed that he is also interested in Korean. “I ask Channi to tell me some words in Korean. In the end, I think I really like him a lot. I think we show this kind of performance on the field. It is also good for the team to maintain its level,” he added.
Hwang Hee-chan, meanwhile, is on fire this season. Hwang Hee-chan scored his eighth goal in the league and ninth of the season with his winning goal against Burnley on the 6th. Last October, Hwang also set a record for scoring in six consecutive home games for Wolverhampton for the first time since John Ricci in the 1972-1973 season. Starting with last season’s last home game against Everton, he shook the net all the way to Brighton and Hove Albion, Newcastle United, Liverpool, Manchester City, Aston Villa and Newcastle at home.
After the match against Burnley, the Premier League officially announced that Hwang Hee-chan, the winner of the final goal, was chosen as the Man of the Match (MOM). He overwhelmingly took the first place with 83.5 percent of the vote in the fan vote. He beat second-place Wolverhampton’s goalkeeper Bentley (6.4 percent), by a large margin of about 80 percent.
On the 29th of last month, the British ‘Birmingham Mail’ reported an interview with Hwang Hee-chan, who has emerged as a leading striker for Wolverhampton Wanderers. Hwang Hee-chan said his goal is to catch up with his former teammate Elling Holan.
Hwang Hee-chan said, “It was my dream to become a Premier Leaguer. Korea also has many good players from the Premier League. I still can’t believe that I’m playing in this league. I’m responsible and that’s why I do my best every day.”
“Every point we score is the result of teamwork. We do our best in training as well.” (Gary O’Neill) The coach is amazing, too. We understand each other very well and all strikers, midfielders and defenders know how to overcome pressure from the opponent team. That’s why we follow the coach’s tactics.” Hwang Hee-chan, who has become a key striker in charge of the team’s points with clear decision-making power, is also firmly believed by his teammates. Now he is emerging as a “big star” at Wolverhampton.
