Ahn Becomes A Squirrel

A busy week at Omiya has continued with Ardija announcing the signing from Suwon Samsung Bluewings of North Korean international Ahn Young Hak. The 31-year-old, who was born in Japan and has also played in the J-League for Albirex Niigata and Nagoya Grampus, has clearly not been a first choice at Suwon, having made only eighteen league appearances in two seasons since joining from Busan I'Park. He looks set to compete at Omiya with the likes of Shin Kanazawa, Hayato Hashimoto and rising star Takuya Aoki for one of the central midfield roles.

I think I saw you asking about Ahn Young-Hak somewhere, I'm not a korean football specialist but from what I followed he's quite a good player, a rock in defensive midfield (and can fill in in central defense as well) and has quite a nice pass to him as well. The reason he didn't play at suwon is that the manager there Cha Bum-Kun is probably one of the worst managers ever, for example he nearly never played last year's top scorer Edu who then went on to sign a contract at Schalke (with the number 9 as well) which shows his quality.

Thanks very much, eljulio.
