“I’m now looking forward to a new challenge in the Bundesliga with SC Freiburg.” Jochen Sauer, head of the FC Bayern Campus, added: “Woo came to us with the desire to take the next step in his career at Freiburg. He’s progressed exceptionally in a sporting and personal sense during his 18 months with us. We wish him all the best and will keep a close eye on his development.”
