It seems that Lee Dong-jun (25, Hertha) is about to return to the K-League.
The German version of ’90min’ and ‘Buld’ reported on the 16th (Korean time), “Lee Dong-joon and Hertha BSC Berlin seem to be going their separate ways after a year.”
Lee Dong-jun joined Hertha BSC Berlin in the German Bundesliga in January. At the time, Hertha expressed expectations for Lee Dong-jun’s performance, saying, “Lee Dong-jun is a very interesting type of player. He is fast, agile, and good at dribbling. I’m already looking forward to Lee Dong-jun’s performance.”
However, Lee Dong-jun’s life at Herta was not easy. He was nicknamed the ‘Korean Rocket’ and was expected for his style based on his quick feet, but he did not play many games due to frequent injuries. 안전놀이터
His hiatus was extended when he was injured in a collision with teammate Kevin-Prince Boateng during training last April. In the end, Lee Dong-jun only played in 4 games (116 minutes).
The media said, “Now, a year later, Lee Dong-jun has been forgotten at Hertha and has only played 4 games. It was difficult to play due to ongoing injuries. In the end, it seems that Lee Dong-jun wants to return to Korea.”
He added, “Lee Dong-jun has agreed to a contract with Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors. The transfer will be announced in the near future.”
Meanwhile, an official from Jeonbuk Hyundai said in a phone call with OSEN on the 16th, “There is nothing specific that can be said yet.”
