Hughes’ tears…Wolverhampton boss says “suspected hamstring injury was reason for second-half start and substitution”

August 27, 2023 | by

Hwang Hee-chan, 27, is once again on the sidelines with a hamstring problem.

Hwang Hee-chan started the third round of the 2023-2024 English Premier League (EPL) between Wolverhampton and Everton at 11 p.m. ET on Saturday, but left the field as a substitute after only playing the first half. Wolverhampton recorded their first win of the season with a 1-0 victory thanks to a 42nd-minute goal from Kalejic in a tumultuous match.

Hwang Hee-chan was handed his first start of the season. He played diligently on the left flank. He didn’t get much of the ball, but when he did, he played aggressively and tried to create chances. However, he also had a few close calls where he was brought down by the opposition.

In the 25th minute, Hwang was tackled by Patterson on a breakaway and fell to the ground. After being attended to by the camera crew, Hwang screamed in pain and had to lie down for about two minutes. He was replaced by Ait-Nouri at the start of the second half and left the field in pain.

The struggling Wolverhampton were saved by a super save from goalkeeper Jose Sa in the 22nd minute. They then conceded a goal in the 33rd minute that was ruled out for offside. In the 40th minute, Kalijic came on as a substitute and took the lead two minutes later, finishing off Neto’s cross with a header.

In the post-match interview, the reason for Hwang’s substitution was revealed. It was a suspected hamstring injury, an area he has struggled with on numerous occasions. “The reason I took him off was because he was complaining of pain in his hamstring,” said Wolverhampton manager Gary O’Neill in his post-match interview, “and he’ll have a scan in the near future.”

The hamstring is a common injury for Hwang. In fact, even when he was in good form as a substitute, he would go down with hamstring problems whenever he started, much to the chagrin of fans. It is not known exactly when he will undergo a medical examination.
