Career

Source:[2][3]

Han Hong-ki, the former Pohang Steelworks FC manager, wanted Choi will grow as a versatile player by utilizing his great tactical intelligence. He played as a playmaker, and moved wide scope in the field. Choi was noted for his speed, ball control, passing skills and vision. Choi recorded 100 appearances, 23 goals, 19 assists, and won two titles in the K League.

In September 1980, Choi was named in the South Korea squad for the 1980 AFC Asian Cup. He scored seven goals including two goals against Kuwait, and a hat-trick against United Arab Emirates in the group stage. South Korea met Kuwait again at the final but lost this time. He became the youngest top scorer at age 18 in the history of AFC Asian Cup.

In November 1980, Choi was named in the South Korea under-20 squad for the 1980 AFC Youth Championship. He scored four goals and won the championship. In the same year, Choi was named for the 1981 FIFA World Youth Championship. He had two goals and two assists against Italy and defeated them 4-1.

Choi was selected for the South Korea squad for the 1986 FIFA World Cup. He had one goal and eight assists in eight matches of the qualification. This record means contributing more than half of team's 17 goals. He scored a goal outside the penalty area against Italy in the group stage.

After the 1981 World Youth Championship, a Serie A club Juventus was interested in Choi. Their interest lasted until 1986 World Cup, but Pohang Steelworks consistently rejected their offer.
