Ki Sung-yueng’s renewal of his contract is expected to be a great help to head coach Kim Ki-dong.

Ki Sung-yueng joined the Seoul National University as a priority player in 2006. Ki was 17 years old at the time. His debut came on March 4, 2007. At the time, Ki made his professional debut in a home game against Daegu FC. At the time, Ki was constantly appointed as a coach with the full support of Señol Guine스ᅀᅀ. He played in 25 games in all competitions during his debut season and gained experience.

Based on such outstanding performances, Ki has advanced to the European stage. He returned to Korea in 2020 after playing for Celtic, Swansea City, Sunderland (rental), Newcastle United and Mallorca. He has returned to his former team Seoul. He has completed his fourth season already.

He has set up a golden crown in 200 games. Since his return, Ki has played more than 30 games every season, and has already played 200 games in total. Through a showdown with Gwangju FC in October last year, Ki has surpassed the 200-game mark in the K-League. Since then, he has played in seven more K-League games (13 goals and 18 assists), nine FA Cup games (1 goal and 1 assist), and eight AFC games (1 goal and 1 assist).

Ahead of the end of the season, however, he had deep thoughts about the next season. Ki’s contract with FC Seoul was about to expire at the end of the 2023 season. “I don’t know what kind of goal I have until the end of the season, and I haven’t thought about it in detail so far,” Ki said.

Ki has been agonizing over whether he can help Seoul by himself. Ki was born in 1989 and is 35 years old. He is still showing off his athletic performance in every game, but he was worried that his athletic performance and physical strength would cause trouble to the team.

However, Kim Ki-dong, the new coach, wanted Ki Sung-yueng to renew his contract. At a press conference on his inauguration on March 3, Kim Ki-dong said, “I want to sign a contract as soon as possible. Seoul is Ki Sung-yueng, and Ki Sung-yueng is Seoul, so let’s play good soccer and sign a contract as soon as possible. I’m looking forward to a good choice because he has a lot of affection for Seoul.”

Eventually, Ki will continue his contract with Seoul. Ki explained to fans in detail why his contract was delayed. “I thought a lot about the future after the 2023 season. It is also true that I had more thoughts as I met many coaches in the UK while conducting the leadership course after the end of the season. I felt sorry for the fans because it was not an easy decision for me to make.”

“As I have decided to stand in front of my fans again, I will do my best with a new mindset. Above all, I was sorry that I couldn’t give you a definite answer due to my confidence while talking on the phone after Kim Ki-dong was appointed as FC Seoul coach, but I am trying to show a good performance because I am confident and capable of the coach,” he said.

Ki Sung-yueng also announced the news of the renewal of his contract to his fans on his personal SNS, saying, “As much as you have waited, I will prepare well for the 2024 season and visit you.”

Ki Sung-yueng’s renewal of his contract is expected to give coach Kim Ki-dong a big boost. He can play a solid role in the midfield first. Already, coach Kim Ki-dong has been making good use of veteran players in his team. Shin Jin-ho in the 2021 season and Shin Kwang-hoon in the last season also played important roles in Pohang and showed good performance. Coach Kim Ki-dong plans to challenge Ki to advance to the Final A.

Meanwhile, FC Seoul has been stepping up preparations for this season by recruiting Choi Joon and Ryu Jae-moon ahead of this season. It is known that the team wants to strengthen its midfielders and center backs in addition.
