Youngest born in 2006, Gangwon FC record breaker Yang Min-hyuk

Gangwon FC’s “youngest” Yang Min-hyuk 17, impressed K-League fans properly.

On April 16, 2006, Yang Min-hyuk set various club records upon his debut. Yang made his professional debut by starting the opening game of “Hana Bank K League 1 2024” against Jeju United at home on the 2nd. He helped Gangwon score the opening goal on the day and accumulated attack points in his professional debut game. He became the youngest player to play in Gangwon’s history and the youngest player to set an offensive point record.

Yang set another record in his second professional match. He scored a goal just one minute after kickoff in an away game against Gwangju FC on Sunday. He was 17 years, 10 months and 23 days old. He became the youngest scorer in the K-League after introducing the promotion system. Even if he expanded the scope to before the introduction of the promotion system, it would be his fifth milestone. In addition, Yang became the first player to score offensive points in two consecutive games as a semi-professional player after the introduction of the promotion system in the K-League. Gangwon coach Yoon Jung-hwan said, “It is not easy for a young player to play for a long time. He seems to have more than doubled his role. He also scored. I think he is a player who can grow further. I think he can grow into a good player.”

After the match against Gwangju, Yang Min-hyuk said, “The director told me to be bold. He told me not to make a young ‘tea’ and do whatever I want. He told me to be confident because it’s okay to make a mistake. I didn’t expect to receive this much attention and set a record. I think I have to do well when the opportunity comes. I will try to break more records in the future.”

Yang Min-hyuk is the future that Gangwon trusts and nurtures. Upon entering Gangneung Jeil High School, his team’s youth team, in 2022, Yang played as a key player. He led the team to victory in the electric league by scoring five goals and one assist in the K-League Junior League. Based on his performance, he also played in the U-17 Asian Cup and World Cup. The team signed a semi-professional contract with Yang ahead of this season. He is the third semi-professional player in Gangwon’s history. Currently, he is a third grader at Gangneung Jeil High School. He is living a “double life” as a K-League player on weekends and a high school student on weekdays. “I had friends who said I did well before debut and that I was amazing. They also give me feedback,” Yang said with a smile.

Yang will play 47 times this season. This is the number Yang used in the 2021 and 2022 seasons when he left for Celtic, a prestigious club in Scotland. Yang also won the K League 1 Young Player Award in 2022. “I want to make my name known in the K League more and try overseas in the future,” Yang said. “First of all, I will do my best in all K League games. I want to become like Yang Hyun-joon.” 토토사이트
