Yoo Sang-Chul

Club: Kashima Reysol
Position: Midfielder

Yoo Sang-Chul is approaching 100 caps for his country and has been one of Korea's most influential players over the last decade.

A rock in the centre of midfield, Yoo patrols the middle of the park with presence and authority.

He can spark a Korean attack with his incisive distribution and is also strong defensively.

He scored during the 1998 World Cup group stages against Belgium and was offered a trial with Barcelona for his performances during that tournament.

However, he missed out on that possible move to Europe because he had already been sold to Yokohama Marinos by Ulsan Hyundai.
