in Riyadh tomorrow and there will be a crucial match between the two teams. The former Korean defender had never won a trophy and, after joining Al-Hilal in 2019, won the Asian Champions League with the team after a 3-0 victory over Japan's Urawa Red Diamonds, but Jang sought to repeat that success.

He said:

“Joining one of the best teams in Asia, one of my objectives was to win the AFC Champions League.

“We achieved that in 2019 and I want to do it again this year. I’m very excited about the prospect of winning the upcoming games. This is a long season, but we have three games to win if we want to become Asian champions, then we can focus on the league."

 

Jang praised his team-mates and said:

“When I first arrived, I was very surprised with the quality of Saudi players, I played my first game against Al Ahli in Jeddah and it was such a high quality game. I was also amazed by how much support Al Hilal has in other cities too."
