Strength in the feet rather than the head… 2m tall Mulich, can Suwon’s attack ‘point’?
Can 2m3cm tall striker Mulrich (29) take a ‘point’ in Suwon Samsung’s attack?
Suwon let go of striker Oh Hyeon-gyu (Celtic) at the end of last month. Oh Hyun-kyu, who was the team’s top scorer last season with 13 goals, transferred and was looking for a replacement. Suwon, learning from the failure of recruiting Groning last season, wanted someone with experience in the K-League. Leonardo, who played for Ulsan Hyundai, and Kim Shin-wook, who obtained free agent qualifications, were selected as strong candidates. It is known that Suwon coach Lee Byeong-geun wanted to recruit Kim Shin-wook. However, as Kim Shin-wook chose Kitchi (Hong Kong), Suwon turned to Mulich. 안전놀이터
Mulich already left Seongnam FC’s training ground in Namhae last week, and Suwon also officially announced his joining on the 7th. Mulich is a tall striker. In the 2021 season, the first season of the K-League, he scored 13 goals in 36 games, and also scored 9 goals in 33 games last season. However, he is not a typical target striker. He is a player who defends the ball and has strengths in speed and shooting rather than heading using the right to provide. He is not the type to overwhelm opponents physically. None of his nine goals scored last season were headed. Even in the 2021 season, only 1 of 13 goals is a header. He has a completely different style from Oh Hyun-gyu. Mulich must coexist or create synergy with Ahn Byung-jun, another frontline striker.
Suwon reinforced its second line resources ahead of the season. Akosti, Kim Kyung-joong, and Kim Bo-kyung have all newly worn Suwon uniforms. Ko Seung-beom also joined the team after resolving military issues. Last season, Lee Ki-je, the king of help, renewed the contract and stayed. Lee Ki-je’s left-footed cross is one of Suwon’s offensive options. I had fun using Lee Ki-je’s left-footed kick and air power at the set piece. It means that there are quite a few elements to shoot to help Mulich. There are about 20 days left until the opening. Not wanting to repeat the pain of last season, Suwon took on the task of finding an effective way to use Mulich.
