Jang Hyun-soo was found to have a positive lymphatic gland tumor as a member of Saudi Arabia’s Al Hilal in June and devoted himself to treatment with support from the club. On September 1st, he revealed through his personal channel that he had recovered 100% from cancer. Afterwards, he visited the Al Hilal training site, where his contract ended, to say goodbye to his colleagues who had been with him for four years, and received a plaque of appreciation. And on the 24th, Qatar’s Algarafa transfer was announced. Jang Hyun-soo said in the club’s official video, “The field is back.
Jang Hyun-soo made his debut right after two days of “Official.” With a shaved head and a uniform number 20, he formed a center back partnership with Dametraore to lead his team to a 2-1 victory. Algarapa, which Koo Ja-cheol played in the past, led by Farid Bulaya’s first goal in the 40th minute of the first half. Kenji Gore scored the equalizer in the 12th minute of the second half, but Perzani Sashi scored a dramatic winning goal just before the end. After winning four consecutive games, Algarafa scored 22 points to bring down second-place Al-Sad 19 points, who played two fewer games, and recaptured the lead.
Jang Hyun-soo is from Yonsei University and made his professional debut with Japan’s FC Tokyo in 2012 and has played in Asian leagues other than Korea for more than 10 years as a member of Guangzhou R&F and Al Hilal. He won three Saudi professional leagues and two Asian Champions League titles for Al Hilal, and was a runner-up at the FIFA Club World Cup in 2022.
Jang Hyun-soo, a gold medal member at the 2014 Incheon Asian Games, played in 58 A matches 3 goals. However, in 2018, he was permanently deprived of his national qualification after it was revealed that he falsely submitted it as a result of volunteer work for special military service. At the time, former national team coach Paulo Bento said, Jang Hyun-soo’s exclusion from the list is clearly a loss in terms of performance. Jang Hyun-soo was basically a player who helped the team a lot, he said. Bento later advanced to the round of 16 at the 2022 Qatar World Cup as a combination of Kim Min-jae and Kim Young-kwon’s center backs.
