Super Crack Willian Full Recruitment

FC Seoul has fully recruited Willian (29) of Brazil, who played as a loanee for the 2023 season. It is the first official announcement since Kim Ki-dong took the helm.

The Seoul club said on the 20th, “With the full recruitment of Willian, we will be able to maintain our strong offense, which tied for first in the league in the 2023 season, next season.”

Willian, who debuted to domestic fans at Gwangju FC in 2019, showed a steady performance throughout the 2022 season, scoring 37 goals and 12 assists in 96 games.

Even after joining Seoul as a condition for complete transfer after being loaned to him for the 2023 season, he played 33 games and scored eight goals and two assists. He was praised for playing a leading role and playing a key role in the team’s attack by banking on his outstanding performances.

In particular, the dramatic equalizer he scored in the game against Ulsan Hyundai in August showed his unique finishing ability. His talent to break down the opponent’s defense with rhythmic personal skills and creative movements is considered Willian’s best advantage.

The Seoul club added that head coach Kim Ki-dong, who is the best resourceful in the K-League and has an excellent ability to maximize the strengths of players, expects to bring new synergy to the offense through a “super crack” called Willian.

Willian said, “I wanted to be with Seoul, but I’m happy to be able to accompany you in the future. Not only me, but also my family, so FC Seoul always feels like home. I know the role I have to play in Seoul and I want to be with you for a long time. I’ll be responsible and repay you with a good performance.”

Willian, who has returned to his home country and is resting after the end of the season, is scheduled to return to Korea in time for the team’s call-up date early next year.
