The K League United Podcast

Sep 9, 2021

Back in the host's chair, Ryan Walters is joined by Matthew Binns and Peter Hampshire once again to recap yet another busy week of Korean football.

They begin with the Korean Men's National Team kicking off Group A of Asian Qualifiers at home and drawing 0-0 with Iraq and narrowly defeating a resilient Lebanon 1-0. The biggest question of the segment: were Korea better without Son Heung-min in the lineup?

Jeonnam Dragons forward Samuel Nnamani joins for the second segment to discuss the season so far, his fascinating journey from Nigeria through Serbia and Sweden, and eventually to South Korea. He and Ryan also dive into the Dragons' FA Cup run and how similar it all is to his first season in Sweden's second division.

FC Seoul take centre stage in the third segment to dissect what went wrong for manger Park Jin-sub and why he's out after just 27 matches at the helm this season. Are Seoul just cursed or can a new manager get them to safety?

Lastly, the Eulji Lewis Mailbag has questions about everything from Pohang's new fan engagement strategy to how the Taeguk Warriors would fare against the top K League sides. All that and more in this edition of the K League United Podcast!
