When asked about the new faces who have arrived at the club, the South Korean told The Athletic: “Competition is always good. You improve yourself and also your teammates. We can rotate, or we can have a different style of football, or we can have different movements.
“Adding players like Richy is incredible. He’s a quality player so I’m really enjoying that. I’ve been with him only four days but he’s become like a really close friend.”
