He said, “As a senior player, I expect leadership.

Heo Il-young has a lot of experience.

I think the younger players, including Yu Ki-sang, will have a lot to see and learn from.”

Heo Il-young expressed his thoughts, saying, “I had a recruitment offer from another club, but I chose LG after hearing about coach Cho Sang-hyun’s plan for next season.”

Heo Il-young added, “It was burdensome to play in Changwon as an away team player, but I feel reassured knowing that I can now play as an LG player with the support of Changwon fans.”
