Women’s professional volleyball Hyundai Engineering & Construction took out the ‘substitute player’ card. This is because there is no guarantee that foreign player Yasmin Verdart (registered name Yasmin) will return.
Yasmin played the last game against Pepper Savings Bank on December 18 last year and has been away until the 1st. He complained of back pain and was found to have a herniated disc and had surgery right away. Afterwards, Hyundai E&C took the lead by filling Yasmin’s vacancy with Hwang Yeon-joo and enduring with strong organizational power. But now I run out of power.
Hyundai E&C only recorded 6 wins and 4 losses in 10 games after Yasmin left. Although the number of wins is higher, the resolution is clearly different compared to the opening 15 consecutive wins. The 4 losses are the result of two consecutive losses. In particular, it was shocking to be caught in a row by GS Caltex (2-3 loss) and Korea Expressway Corporation (1-3 loss) in the middle of last month. Hyundai E&C, which has been leading the race with a large margin of victory since the beginning of the season, is now being chased down to the bottom of the chin by 2nd place Heungkuk Life Insurance with a 3-point margin. 토토사이트
Originally, Yasmin was scheduled to return with the start of the 5th round after the All-Star Game. Director Kang Seong-hyung also looked forward to his return, saying, “Yasmin is steadily going through the recovery phase.” However, as his condition worsened recently, he stopped exercising again. Yasmin will miss the scheduled match against GS Caltex on the 2nd.
An official from Hyundai E&C said, “Because Yasmin is not able to exercise, it seems that she will be absent for a while. It is difficult to estimate when she will return.”
The reason for guessing the recruitment of new foreign players lies in the judgment that it is difficult to continue the season with only domestic players. An official from the club said, “We have selected several candidates,” and said, “We will make a final decision on whether or not to replace Yasmin after observing her condition.”
This is not a complete replacement, but the intention of filling the void with a replacement player and watching Yasmin’s condition. The professional volleyball V-League divides foreign player replacements into ‘replacement players’, which are complete replacements, and substitute players who are temporarily recruited for reasons such as injuries. Substitutes can be selected when the injured player’s absence is more than 4 weeks. Since Yasmin has already been absent for more than a month and a half, there is no obstacle to Hyundai E&C’s calculations.
