Biography

Yoo Sang-chul started playing soccer on the Konkuk University team . After graduation, in 1994 he was hired by Ulsan Hyundai and initially emerged as a defensive player who could also play on the wings and join the attack. In the 1998 season , coach Ko Jae-wook advanced his position to midfield and Yoo scored 14 goals in 20 official matches, becoming the tournament's top scorer.

The player stood out at the international level in the 1998 Soccer World Cup and attracted the attention of several foreign clubs, even going so far as to do a test with Fútbol Club Barcelona . In 1999 he was hired by Yokohama F. Marinos of the Japanese league and stayed there for two seasons, with a record of 17 goals in 22 games in the 2000 edition . From there he went to Kashiwa Reysol , and midway through the 2002 season he returned to South Korea to play for Ulsan Hyundai.

Yoo Sang-chul was part of the South Korean team that achieved fourth place in the 2002 Soccer World Cup , with a performance that earned him part of the ideal eleven of the championship. [ 2 ] The following year, the player returned to Yokohama F. Marinos and remained there until 2005, when he returned to Ulsan Hyundai to close his career in 2006, at age 35.

After retiring from the pitch, Yoo became a soccer coach and was hired by the Daejeon Citizen in 2011, helping them maintain the top flight. He later managed the Ulsan University team (2014-17), Jeonnam Dragons (2018) and Incheon United (2019).

In November 2019, he had to stop training because he was diagnosed with metastatic pancreatic cancer that required chemotherapy. [ 3 ] During the following months he gave interviews to explain his state of health. After being admitted to the Asan Hospital in Seoul due to the worsening of the disease, he died on June 7, 2021 at the age of 49. [ 4 ]
