“There is a handsome player in KEPCO? Can I win…”
Every word was thoughtful. It was different from the Mongolian duo who had their first pro, or the Filipino volleyball stars who were thrilled to advance to Korea.
29 years old this year. He played for Panasonic, a Japanese business volleyball team. In the meantime, he also experienced victory.
Now, Ryohei Iga (KEPCO) is taking on a new challenge. Participating in the first Asian quarter tryout in the history of the V-League held in Jeju, he was nominated by KEPCO as the second overall pick. To the extent that several teams, including KEPCO and Korean Air, were fighting over him early on, he was rather ahead of Eddy (Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance), Mark Espeho (Korean Air), 3rd, and Bayar Saihan (OK Financial Group), 4th. It was evaluated as ‘substantially number one’.
Lee Ga, who was interviewed, said, “I was very proud the moment my name was called,” expressing hot expectations for Korean volleyball. Of course, the Asia quota salary (100,000 dollars, about 133 million won), which is said to be ‘double’ than before, is also a reason for his excitement.
As he is in a position to take on a challenge at a considerable age, he did not lose his prudence. “I will do my best in all matches”, “I will focus on stable play without ups and downs”, “I have experience of winning in Japan 4-5 years ago. I want to win in Korea as well,” he expressed his firm will. 토토사이트
Regarding KEPCO, he replied, “I know it as a strong team that is good at volleyball.” The person who gave this explanation was Takahiko Imamura, who was called the ‘Three Musketeers of Panasonic’ along with Iga and Otake Issey (Woori Card). Unfortunately, he was the only one out of the three Japanese players to be eliminated.
I have experience playing in the same team as Liu Hongmin, who was nominated by KB Insurance. Regarding the confrontation with his old teammates, Iga laughed, saying, “If you enter a match, you are an enemy. I will work hard and win for sure.”
