Professional soccer’s K League 1 Daegu FC has signed veteran foreign striker Edgar (36-Brazil) for another year.

The club announced on Monday that it has re-signed Edgar until 2024.

Edgar, who first donned a Daegu jersey in June 2018, is one of the club’s most iconic foreign players alongside Sejingya.

He has made 129 appearances in six seasons in the K League 1, scoring 44 goals and providing 18 assists.

He helped Daegu win its first Korean Football Association (FA) Cup in 2018 and has also played in the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Champions League (ACL).

After rupturing his Achilles tendon in the ACL playoffs in March last year, Edgar underwent surgery and was out of contract with Daegu for an extended period of time, but he returned to action this season, scoring nine goals and providing three assists in the league.

In the final match of the 2023 season against Incheon United on March 3, he exploded for a multi-goal performance to lead Daegu to a 2-1 victory and was named the Most Valuable Player (MVP) of Round 38.

“Edgar has been performing well as an attacking core since joining Daegu, and he has also shown outstanding leadership,” said the Daegu club. “We are looking forward to writing new history with Edgar next season after playing in important games in the past.”

“I would like to thank everyone involved with Daegu, including CEO Cho Kwang-rae, the coaching staff, and the front desk. I will give everything I have next year,” he said. “I am grateful to the Daegu fans who have always supported me, and I will do my best to bring them even more joy and happiness.” 사설토토
