Usually, there is no smaller catch in the K-League than Gwangju Sangmu. The military club spends every season at the bottom. That is not a huge surprise considering that they are restricted to players on their two-year tour of duty and are not able to go out and sign exotic foreign stars, something that many clubs in the league are doing right now.
The addition of strikers Choi Sung-kuk has helped. The ‘Little Maradona’ has revitalized the team, adding invention, creation and, at the risk of going overboard, even a touch of magic from time to time. He has bagged seven goals, the same as strike partner Kim Myung-joong, a big man to compliment Choi.
Gwangju’s problem is a small squad that will struggle if injuries and suspensions take their toll. That hasn’t really happened yet but is always a worry. Recent results have taken a downturn with three straight defeats but the team is still in third-place and on course for a place in the end of season championship play-offs.
