    Ahn got injured by the Maldives player and he will be out for more than two months. This news is really devastating because of these two reasons.

    1. Ahn's contract with his club Yokohama Marinos, ends this season. And it was very likely that he will move to Europe once his contract with the team's over. His agency already confirmed that they were approached by several European clubs. One of them was Lazio, who were very keen on signing Ahn. Now that he's injured and out for more than two months, the chance of him going to Europe looks very very slim. Just to think rationally, no clubs in Europe would bet their money on Ahn, knowing that they won't be able to use him for a long period. :(

    2. The other reason why this news comes "devastating" is, Korea NT are scheduled to have a training camp in Europe for 3 weeks. During this period, they are going to play 2-3 competitve "away" matches against the top Euopean oppositions. Of course, Ahn won't be able to join in this squad because of his injury.

    Right after the training camp's over, Korea NT will face the-all-important-WCQ match at the beginning of February, where they will be tested greatly by the top Asian powerhouse. We need all the players we got in this match and Ahn won't be used here. :(

    Ahn will be missing his winter-break training as well as 1 or 2 WCQ matches. This means, Korea NT will have to rely "only" on Lee Dong Guk. Many fans are very skeptical about him, yet we have no choice because we haven't found any replacements for the lone striker position...

    For 1, I agree. It is devastating to Anh personally.

    Re: 2, I think it will give Bonferer to try out young players like Choi Sun Guk, Park Chu YOung and others. I actually think this is a blessing in disguise for Korean NT. Of course, I am assuming that Anh's presence in Korean NT isn't that significant to begin with. Korea just has too many forwards who can fill Anh's shoes.

    My 2 cents.

    yea boner needs to tinker with the striker positions. he needs to find the best suitable strike partners with exception subs which we have. hopefully the knt will realize that they still need a lot of (team)work during the holiday and in europe.

    Ahn wasnt very effective against Maldives until he got injured, his touches were rough and wasnt able to make anything special out of it...

    Ahn is looking not so good since last year

    Ahn Jung-hwan can just become a free agent. Then when he's recovered, he can go to any club anywhere at any time because he doesn't have a club.

    Ahn hasn't been anything special for a long time. I wish him the best but I don't expect too much out of him.

    Really terrible news. What luck this guy has. He will sorely be missed in our NT. His absence will be shown in matches ahead. Not only that but his move to Lazio was about to happen and then this blows up in his face.

    Why must you torture me Ahn. I've been your faithful for over 5 years and fate does this to you.
