Ahn jung Hwan


Ahn Jung-hwan (Hangul: 안정환) is a South Korean former football player.

He made world headlines by scoring the winning golden goal for South

Korea against Italy in the 2002 FIFA World Cup second round,

and earning him dismissal from the Italian club Perugia.

Ahn also played for clubs in Japan, France, Germany and China, as well as being

selected for South Korea in two more World Cups, in 2006 and2010.



After starting his professional career with K League's Busan Daewoo Royals,

Ahn joined Serie A's AC Perugia in 2000–01, on loan. In a 2013 interview, he claimed to

have been ostracised at the club, and bullied by his captain, Marco Materazzi.

In the 2002 FIFA World Cup, he scored an extra-time header in the round of 16 game

against Italy that sent the South Koreans through to the quarter-finals. The next day,

Perugia owner Luciano Gaucci cancelled his contract and was quoted as saying, "I have no

intention of paying a salary to someone who has ruined Italian football." Gaucci stated that

his decision was not due to the goal, alleging comments by Ahn about the Italian nation.

South Korean national manager Guus Hiddink criticised the decision.


Perugia later took back what they had said, and offered to outright buy Ahn's contract, but

the player rejected it, saying "I will no longer discuss my transfer to Perugia, who attacked

my character instead of congratulating me for a goal in the World Cup."

During the World Cup in 2002, Ahn also scored the late equaliser in South Korea's match

with the United States. After scoring the goal he performed a goal celebration with his

teammates, mimicking the movements of compatriot Kim Dong-sung. Six months earlier,

during the 2002 Winter Olympics, speedskater Kim was disqualified for "cross tracking"

American skater Apolo Anton Ohno in their 1500 m short track event. Because of the

disqualification, Ohno won the gold medal even though he had finished second to Kim. Ahn's

celebration was a form of protest against the ISU's decision, which many Koreans

felt was biased.




Ahn then attempted to secure a permanent move to another European club but failed and

returned to Asia, joining J. League Division 1's Shimizu S-Pulse. After one season, he moved

to another J. League team, Yokohama F. Marinos. After this successful spell in Japan, he

returned to Europe to play for French team FC Metz in July 2005. He scored 2 Ligue

1 goals (Round 1 & 18) in 16 outings.

On 16 January 2006, Ahn was invited to train with Blackburn Rovers but twice failed to

show up, one of the dates being on his birthday. In February he secured a 17-month deal

with MSV Duisburg in Germany. He scored two goals (Round 31 and 32) in 12 outings.

However, the German club was relegated from the Bundesliga, as Ahn saw a move to Heart

of Midlothian of the Scottish Premier League fall through. On 31 August 2006, he was

released by Duisburg, and returned to South Korea in January 2007,

joining Suwon Samsung Bluewings on a one-year deal.
