“Even Iniesta couldn’t play…” 日 Sore memories, more eager for Incheon Mugosa

“I want to write good memories in this beautiful country.”

Forgetting the pain in Japan. Stefan Mugosa (31-Incheon United) is back and vowing to do even better in the K League. Mugosa made his K League debut in 2018 in Incheon’s colours and was an explosive goalscorer. He scored 68 goals and provided 10 assists in 129 league games over five seasons. He was named to the season’s Best 11 for three consecutive years starting in 2019. In 2022, he scored 14 goals in the first 18 games of the season.

It was a farewell for Incheon’s ‘attacking captain’ Mugosa, who left for Japanese J-League 1 side Vissel Kobe in June last year. He triggered his ‘buyout’ clause (guaranteed minimum transfer fee). However, he only made eight official appearances for Kobe, including five league games. It was a tough time. Mugosa returned to Incheon. He made his official return on 6 June in the Hana OneQ K League 1 2023 away match against Jeonbuk Hyundai at Jeonju World Cup Stadium. After the game, Mugosa said, “My teammates helped me a lot. I want to stay in the K League for a long time, but I’m not in the best shape yet. I didn’t train for a month after my injury. I came back two weeks ago. I need to improve my condition as soon as possible.” On the day, Incheon lost 0-2.

He is more eager than a year ago. “The coach who scouted me in Japan (Miguel Angel Rotina) was fired while I was signing the contract,” Mugosa said. The new coach (Takayuki Yoshida) is focusing on Japanese players. At the moment, it’s still Japanese players. There are a lot of foreign players, but only one centre-back plays.” He added: “When I was there, Andres Iniesta didn’t play either. Most of the foreign players had a lot of problems. I thought I would be an exception. I went to Japan in good shape. I had expectations, but there were no exceptions. I was excluded. I played well in training for the 2023 season, scoring six goals, and (the coach) said he would give me another chance. But in the league, Japanese players played well. I wish them luck, but I don’t want to remember it, it’s something I don’t want to talk about (anymore). In the future, I want to write good memories in beautiful Korea.”카지노

Incheon will face Daegu FC at home on the 13th. “If my body is back to its previous form, I’m looking forward to working with the attacking line. I want to work harder to help the team win,” said Mugosa.
