FIFA announced that foreign coaches and players at Russian teams can suspend their contracts until the end of June. As a result, Hwang In-beom’s future is unclear.
The international governing body refused to provide a more permanent solution after the Russian invasion of Ukraine. At present, Hwang is the only Korean player with a Russian contract. Also, he returned to South Korea to nurse an injury. Thus, his future with Rubin Kazan is uncertain.
Hwang is playing his third year with Rubin Kazan. Also, he recently became the team’s captain. The Russian football league has a third of its season left. Therefore, Hwang can sit out for four months or continue to play in Russia.
Hwang In-beom’s Future
According to Korean sportsbook reports, the Bureau of FIFA Council decided to temporarily amend the Regulations on the Status and Transfer of Players. They did it due to the distressing and ongoing humanitarian crisis. Also, FIFA suspended contracts of foreign coaches and players with FUR-related teams until the end of the season.
FIFPro, the most prominent football players’ association on the planet, has called for FIFA to go above and beyond and permit players to end their current agreements with Russian clubs completely.
According to online sports betting experts, Hwang can’t decide his future in Russia. Also, he needs to consider his present physical issue that requires a lengthy recovery period. In addition, he is now out of the country.
Assuming FIFA selects to follow FIFPro’s solicitation later, Hwang could decide to end his agreement and look somewhere else. However, according to sports news sources, he has insight into both the United States and Russian associations. Also, some first-class European teams are interested in him.
