Koo Jacheol has become a permanent fixture in the Taeguk Warriors midfield. His boundless energy and work-rate are crucial on both sides of the ball. Koo has played in the German top flight since 2011 and it has proven to be a match made in heaven; the fast-paced and physical nature of the league suits him. He has the ability to make late runs into the penalty area from midfield, providing an extra option for teams’ wingers and creators.

Scorer of Augsburg’s first ever hat-trick in the Bundesliga, Koo is expected to provide more goals than his midfield colleague Ki Sungyueng, who tends to bring more defensive stability to that area of the park. Koo brings an intensity to the team that, if harnessed, can be important to any side he’s in.
