Hwang | 'We need to keep improving and aim high'

Hee Chan Hwang says Wolves should never settle with what they’ve done so far and “aim higher” each week.

The South Korean featured for his club for the first time in 2024 at the weekend and led the line as Wolves beat Tottenham Hotspur, making it six matches unbeaten away from home. At Molineux, Wolves have lost their last two however, and Hwang has called on the Old Gold to keep bettering themselves and not rest up after a victory.

On the win at Tottenham

“It was a near perfect game as a team, especially defensively. In terms of attacking, there were some things we could’ve done better, but we got the result we needed in a tough away match. I'm pleased to have won against a big team in this great stadium. It gives me motivation to do better and gives us more confidence.

“I'm not 100 per cent yet as I only just came back to training in the week and started training with the team. Despite this, I thought our performance was excellent and I am proud I was able to help the team at least a little to win. I will continue to try help the team as much as possible to get results.”

On hoping to get back in the goals

“Obviously, I wanted to score. There were many Korean fans there, so I wanted to do well for them, but in the end, our team got the result we wanted, so I’m very happy. To earn three points against a strong team was a great result.”

On how the season is shaping up

“If we do our best every game in order to reach our goals, I'm sure results will follow. However, we can never settle and be happy with where we are, we need to keep improving and aim higher and us players are always talking about what we need to do to improve.”

On working under O’Neil

“When the season first started, the manager had just come in and had a period where he was trying to build a strong team. I feel he has made us a great team and we are getting better with every game.

“The team is well drilled to the manager's tactics, and I feel the results are following due to those efforts. The match gave us the confidence that we will become even better and gives us a clear idea on where we aim to head.”

On facing Son

“Playing against Heung-min is always special, especially on the best stage in the world like this. For two Korean players to face each other in the Premier League is an honour. He had a great game, but our defenders also did a great job of defending him.

“So many Korean fans were there Saturday, and it made me feel I want to become even better to repay their support. I hope the fans enjoyed watching us. I really want to say thank you to all the Korean fans in the stadium and who watched the game in Korea.”
