Correspondent Ban Jin-hyeok = Who commanded Europe, but left for Asia too early?
Soccer statistics site ‘score90’ mentioned “the top 5 players who left Europe too early” on the 6th.
The main characters are Xabi Hernandez, Oscar, Cristiano Ronaldo, James Rodriguez and Andres Iniesta.
Xavi has always been active in Barcelona. He has accumulated tremendous winning careers such as the league and the Champions League, and also won the World Cup trophy with the Spanish national team.
At the end of his playing career, his sense of challenge was wriggling, and in 2015, at the age of 35, he moved to Qatar’s Al Sadd. He even rose to the rank of manager while playing as a player. He currently manages his home team, Barcelona.
Oscar played for Chelsea before moving to Shanghai, China in 2016 at the age of 25. He also participated in the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Champions League (ACL) and played away matches in the K League.
Iniesta, who made history in Barcelona with Xavi, transferred to Japan’s Vissel Kobe in 2018 and is experiencing the Asian stage.
Ronaldo also left Europe for Asia. Manchester United, who returned after 12 years, was openly sniped and was notified of the termination of his contract.
Ronaldo hoped to remain on the European stage. However, no team showed interest due to the high salary, and he moved to Saudi Arabia’s Al Nasr. 메이저놀이터
The case of Hames is a little different. He left for Al Rayian in Qatar in 2021 after playing for Real Madrid and Everton, but left on loan to Olympiacos in Greece in September of last year.
