Gambian international winger, Modou Barrow’s South Korean club Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors were on Sunday crowned K-League champions for the eighth times as they beat Daegu FC 2-0 to seal the title in a game played at the Jeonju Wold Cup Stadium.

Korean Republic international attacker Cho Gue-Sung scored both goals for Jeonbuk Motors in the 27th and 40th minutes to earn his side their eighth total K-League titles.

The 28-year-old Scorpions attacker Modou Barrow played the full match as he also played a crucial part in Cho Gue-Sung’s brace.

The former Denizlispor, Reading, Leeds United, and Swansea City player scored two goals and provided four assists for Jeonbuk in the South Korean K League in 15 appearances.

Barrow who is part of coach Tom Saintfiet provisional squad for the upcoming Afcon double-header against Gabon moved permanently to Jeonbuk Hyundail Motors from Reading on 20 July 2020.

Mo Barrow as he is fondly called made his debut for The Gambia during the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers in a goalless draw away to South Africa on 13 June 2015.

He later scored his first international goal on 27 March 2017, opening a 2–1 friendly win over the Central African Republic in Kenitra, Morocco.

Meanwhile, Sunday's win saw Jeonbuk take their fourth consecutive K-League title, and eighth in total. They finished three points ahead of Ulsan Hyundai after a season that was disrupted by the coronavirus pandemic.

Jeonbuk finished with 60 points with 19 wins, three draws and five losses. Ulsan Hyundai FC finished in second place with 57 points with 17 wins, six draws and four losses.
