Former Korean international for Home

Former Korean international  Lee Kwan Woo has reportedly come out of retirement to play for Home United this season.

The 34-year-old was reportedly a fan favourite during his time with his first Korean club Daejeon Citizen with his accurate passing and long shots.

He was also as good in his time with second and final K-league club, Suwon Samsung Bluewings, as he came back from a career-ending car accident to be called up to the national team.

During that period, he was noted for his keen passing and ball distribution.

Considering last season Home United was constantly criticized by Sport pundit Paul Masefield for their negative style of play as they rarely advert forward and instead resort to long ball for their attacks, the Korean may be a welcome addition to the team.

Especially as their attack this season will lacked the height of  top scorer Mendy who have move to Portugal.

The only negative about Lee is that he has not played for over two years so one wonder if he is still match-fit for the full 90 minutes for the entire season.

But with the experience of having played over 280 games in the K-league and scoring over 30 goals, do not bet against the Korean that he will come good.
