Bayern Munich said on the 17th (Korean time) on the club website, “Lee Hyun-joo will be absent for the next few weeks. He had to leave the field due to a knee ligament injury 3 minutes after being substituted in the game against Turku Guiju Munich (3-0 win). ” was officially announced.
Lee Hyun-joo, born in 2003, is a great prospect from the Pohang Steelers. After graduating from Pohang Jecheol Middle School and Jecheol High School, he was nominated first for Pohang. And before stepping into the pros, Munich sent a love call and went over to Germany on a one-year lease in January of last year. His contract included a permanent transfer option.
Lee Hyun-joo, who can play as a winger, attacking midfielder, or central midfielder, caught Munich’s attention with his amazing potential. And as the full transfer was completed last summer, he signed a contract until June 2025. Munich youth director at the time explained, “Lee Hyun-joo left a good impression on us for six months. I decided to sign him completely with confidence. It is difficult to hide my excitement at his outstanding growth.”
Lee Hyun-joo is not currently in Munich’s first team, but belongs to Bayern Munich II. Munich II is participating in the Regionalliga Bayern (fourth division). He has been putting on an outstanding performance this season. He appeared in 20 matches and scored ‘9 goals and 2 assists’, establishing himself as an ace. The team is in 3rd place with 14 wins, 5 draws and 8 losses (47 points). 토토사이트
I had a good run, but I faced bad news. He was substituted in the 17th minute of the second half in the match against Turkugizi Munich on the 16th, but was injured and substituted in the 3rd minute. His long-term absence became inevitable as tests revealed a knee ligament injury.
As a result, Lee Hyun-joo is expected to miss the ‘Doha Cup U-22 Friendship Tournament’ to be held in Doha, Qatar from the 23rd. On the 13th, the Korea Football Association (KFA) announced the list of 25 members of the Olympic team, including Lee Hyun-joo. However, he is likely to leave due to an unexpected injury.
