Legendary Wolves striker Steve Bull has been impressed by what he has seen from Hwang Hee-Chan so far.

Hwang’s nickname is actually ‘the Bull’, which seems apt given the history of the club.

Bull wrote in his Express and Star column that Hwang has been ‘promising’ so far.

“After a couple of games, you get an idea of what certain players can do and what we’ve seen from Hwang so far has been promising,” he wrote.

“He has got that fancy footwork – nutmegging defenders – and can beat a man.


“Most importantly, he knows where the net is as well. Hwang has definitely got something about him, and his partnership with Raul Jimenez could prove to be very fruitful for Wolves.”

International form

Man of the moment Hwang also got an assist in South Korea’s crucial 2-1 World Cup qualifying win against Syria earlier this week.

The 25-year-old played the ball to In-Beom Hwang who smashed the ball home from distance to give South Korea the lead.

After Syria equalised in the 84th minute, Tottenham star Heung-Min Son ensured his side got the three points with the winner in the 89th minute.

Hwang could have continued his goalscoring form, but missed two presentable chances earlier in the match.
