Hwang Hee-chan led Wolverhampton to a 1-0 victory with the first winning goal scored in the 42nd minute of the first half against Burnley in the 15th round of the 2023-2024 EPL at Molineux Stadium in Wolverhampton, England, on December 6 (Korea time). With this goal, Hwang Hee-chan scored his eighth goal in the EPL this season and achieved double-digit attack points for the first time in a season, including two assists.
Hwang Hee-chan, who is tied for fourth in the EPL scoring rankings after Erling Holan (14 goals from Manchester City), Muhammad Salah (10 goals from Liverpool) and Son Heung-min (Tottenham, 9 goals), is by far the most goals scored in Wolverhampton.
With one goal added in the League Cup (Carabao Cup), Hwang Hee-chan’s total score in the official match is eight goals, followed by Mateus Cunha and Sasha Kalajić, who scored three goals each in the official match. Hwang Hee-chan, who suffered a hamstring injury at the beginning of this season, raised concerns but remained generally healthy without a long absence, is making his best season.
In particular, it is encouraging that the “goal silence” has not exceeded two games since the team started scoring against Brighton in the second round this season. The “goalless for two consecutive games” has continued its sense, with only 11 rounds against Sheffield and 12 rounds against Tottenham.
On top of that, Hwang Hee-chan is particularly strong in home games, which fosters affection from Wolverhampton fans. Hwang Hee-chan has scored as many as six goals this season at Molineux Stadium, his home ground.
This is second in the EPL home game scoring list this season after Liverpool Salah’s eight goals, according to The Sun of England. 카지노사이트
Including the match against Burnley, Wolverhampton played seven home games this season, of which Hwang Hee-chan scored in six matches, excluding 12 rounds against Tottenham. The British Telegraph said after the match that “Hwang Hee-chan has become a new hero for Wolverhampton.”
The Telegraph, which praised Hwang Hee-chan as “proving that he is indispensable to head coach Gary O’Neill,” also reported that discussions between Hwang Hee-chan and Wolverhampton are proceeding smoothly.
Hwang Hee-chan, who signed a formal contract during the 2021-2022 season when he was on loan and became a Wolverhampton player, has a current contract period until 2026.
Recently, local media reported the start of discussions on extending the contract, and O’Neill is also expressing hope for renewing his contract.
However, Hwang Hee-chan is now in his prime. He has adapted enough on the British stage. Now he can want to dream bigger. Local media said Hwang Hee-chan’s renewal of his contract is very smooth. Renewal is not the problem. Now Hwang Hee-chan is the ace and icon of Wolverhampton.
