December 22, 2022, marks the official announcement of Lee Dong-joon’s (26) ‘K League U-turn’.After playing for Ulsan HD FC, Lee moved to Hertha Berlin in the German Bundesliga in January last year, but he didn’t see the light of day in Germany.He was selected as one of the top 11 strikers in the K League in the 2021 season, but he only made four appearances in the Bundesliga.He naturally fell out of favor with the national team and didn’t even make it to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, where he delighted soccer fans by reaching the round of 16.Eventually, Lee made a desperate comeback to Korea by donning the jersey of Jeonbuk, a rival of his hometown club Ulsan.
In 23 regular-season games in 2023, Lee failed to score a single goal. His two assists were all he could muster. Along with Lee’s struggles, Jeonbuk’s offense has also been stagnant. Jeonbuk has scored just 45 goals this season, far behind champions Ulsan (63) and second-place Pohang Steelers (53).Their ranking in K League 1 (4th) is also their worst ever. Since 2013, when the promotion system was implemented, Jeonbuk has never finished lower than third.So for both Lee Dong-joon and Jeonbuk, the final six matches of the 2023-2024 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Champions League (ACL) Group F against Bangkok United 카지노사이트킹 (Thailand) at Jeonju World Cup Stadium in Jeonju, Jeolla Province on Wednesday were crucial.
