An official from the club said, “Joo Se-jong is scheduled to undergo surgery on the 7th. The expected recovery period will be known only after seeing the progress after the surgery.”
Joo Se-jong collapsed due to an injury in the second round of Hana 1 Q K League 1 2023 against Incheon United held at the Incheon Soccer Stadium on the 4th and was replaced by Gong Min-hyun in the 47th minute of the second half.
He hit his face on the head of Incheon Kim Dong-min while fighting for an aerial ball earlier and collapsed, and was carried out of the stadium on a stretcher. Kim Dong-min received a red card for a serious foul and was sent off.
Veteran midfielder Joo Se-jong was recruited on loan from Japan’s J-League Gamba Osaka last summer to Daejeon, which belonged to K-League 2, and contributed greatly to promotion to the first division. .
However, after playing only two games (1 win, 1 draw) after the opening, Daejeon had to take on the homework of filling the void of Joo Se-jong. His return is likely to take several weeks.
When Son Heung-min (Tottenham Hotspur), captain of the Korean soccer team, underwent surgery for an orbital fracture during a UEFA (European Football Confederation) Champions League game in November last year, the medical world predicted that he would need at least a month of rest.
Son Heung-min played the 2022 World Cup group stage in Qatar about three weeks after surgery, but did not fully recover from the injury and went to the game wearing a black mask to protect his face.
