Playing career
Yoo was one of Korea's most influential players over the last decade. He was known as a powerful and versatile midfielder with strong aerial ability, even though his versatility actually allowed him to shine in just about any area of the field, from defence to attack, but his coaches believed his all-round ability was best deployed in the center of the midfield, where he could patrol the middle of the park with presence and authority. Yoo had the ability to spark an attack with his incisive distribution and was also strong defensively as well as physically.
The highly rated midfielder was offered a trial with FC Barcelona in 1998 for his impressive performances during the 1998 FIFA World Cup group stages. However, he missed out on that possible move to Europe because his club Ulsan Hyundai had already agreed a contract-binding deal to sell Yoo to Yokohama F. Marinos. He moved briefly to join Kashiwa Reysol's Korean trio in 2001 but Marinos brought the versatile Korean back to Yokohama in 2003.
He was part of the South Korea under-23 team for the 2004 Summer Olympics, who finished second in Group A, making it through to the next round, before being defeated by silver medal winners Paraguay.
He scored two goals for Korea in FIFA World Cup, one in 1998 against Belgium and another in 2002 against Poland. He played a key part of the Korean national football team when Korea reached the semi-finals in the 2002 FIFA World Cup. He also has a blind eye, in which he kept secret. He publicly told everyone at a Korean TV talk show.
Managerial career
On 17 July 2011, he was appointed manager of Daejeon Citizen. His management at Daejeon Citizen was successful in order to survive the K League 1. Many fans wanted him to stay with Daejeon Citizen for longer but his contract had expired. The club asked for him to renew the contract but the two parties could not agree on some conditions.
In 2013, Ulsan University which is one of the strongest Korean university football clubs asked to be manager. He started coaching again from the 2014 season.
Personal life
On 21 November 2019, he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer at the stage 4, which caused him to be hospitalized. Yoo passed away on 7 June 2021 due to pancreatic cancer at the age of 49.
