Professional soccer K-League 1 Incheon United signed veteran flank defender Oh Jae-seok (31). The Incheon club announced on the 14th that it has recruited side defender Oh Jae-seok from the national team who has been active in the Japanese J League for a long time.
Incheon is expected to build a stronger defense in the 2021 season by recruiting national defender Oh Jae-seok, who played 67 games in the K-League, 194 games in the J-League, and 19 games in the Asian Champions League (ACL). In particular, with Oh Jae-seok, who can play an active part in both sides, it is possible to consider stabilizing the flank defense and various attack options.
Oh Jae-seok, who joined Suwon Samsung in 2010 after going through Shingalgo-Kyunghee University and ranked first in the 2010 K-League rookie draft, made his professional debut that year. He played in 7 league matches and 2 ACL matches despite his new appointment, and transferred to Gangwon FC the following year, scoring 3 goals and 4 assists in 60 games in 2 years.
Oh Jae-seok, who moved to the J-League Gamba Osaka in 2013, played 194 games for 7 years until 2019, recorded 14 assists, and played an active part as a foreign player in the team’s history for the longest time. After contributing to the team’s victory in the J2 League in 2013 and promotion to the J1 League, he won three J1 League-League Cup-Ilwangbae competitions in 2014 and led the Ilwangbae Championship in 2015 season. From 2015 to 2017, he competed in 15 ACL matches for 3 years and recorded 2 assists, and in the 2018 season, he became the team’s leading player by setting a record of 100 appearances in the J1 League. He transferred to loan and played 12 games, playing an active part in the league runner-up. After returning to Gamba again in the 2020 season, he played one game and then transferred to Nagoya Grampus. As a member of Nagoya, he participated in 23 games, including the Cup, and led the team’s 3rd place in the J1 League and the league’s minimum runs (28 runs in 34 matches). As a member of the Korean national team, he participated in a total of 55 matches and recorded 1 help. In particular, the Korean national team made a great contribution to winning the bronze medal at the 2010 Asian Games in Guangzhou and the 2012 Olympics in London. Jae-seok Oh has the versatility to handle both left and right fullbacks. In addition, the strongest point is that football intelligence is good and quickness is good, so you can play in any position. He is a player loved by fans by staying for a long time in one team and performing consistently.
Incheon is able to balance defense and attack with the addition of experienced Oh Jae-seok. Oh Jae-seok said, “I am glad to come back to the K League after a long time. Especially, I am happier because the team is Incheon with passionate fans. “I will try to be a player that helps Incheon ascend to a higher place.”
Meanwhile, Jae-seok Oh, who has completed all the medical tests, will join the team training and start preparing for the new season in earnest.
