Jeong Jung-yong takes the helm of Gimcheon Sangmu.
Gimcheon announced on Saturday that it has appointed Jung Jung-yong as its second head coach.
Chung took charge of the U-20 national team in 2019, leading them to their first-ever runner-up finish at a FIFA-organized tournament. He also led Seoul Eland FC for three seasons from November 2019 to the end of 2022.
If Cho Young-wook, the U-20 runner-up, and U-20 teammates Lee Ji-sol, Uhm Won-sang, and Jeong Ho-jin, all of whom are on the first round of the ’23 2nd Armed Forces Athletes (Military)’ list, are accepted, the team will once again be expected to work in synergy.
“I was appointed in the middle of the season, so I have a lot of responsibility. I will do my best as a coach to achieve the K League 2 championship and K League 1 promotion that all fans are looking forward to.”
Jung will take charge of the team on June 1 and will make his managerial debut on June 4 against the Jeonnam Dragons away from home.
Meanwhile, Sung Hans-soo, who served as head coach for the first half of the 2023 season, will return as an assistant coach and assist Jung alongside the existing coaches.
Organizers of ‘Napoli-Majorca tour match canceled’ write to KFA calling it “unjust”
Noise is being made about the canceled friendly match between Napoli (Italy), where Kim Min-jae plays, and Mallorca (Spain), where Lee Kang-in plays.
According to the Korea Football Association (KFA), on the 26th, the association received a lawsuit in the name of the consortium organizers StadiumX (STX) and Untouchable Sports Group (USG), which promoted the two teams’ visit to Korea, stating that the friendly match between the two teams was unfairly canceled and that they should be compensated for the damage caused.
Accordingly, the KFA is preparing for the eventuality of receiving a notice from the court.
On June 25, the KFA finally informed the consortium that was organizing the friendly match between the two teams that it would not be allowed to hold the match. The two matches were scheduled to take place on June 8 at Seoul World Cup Stadium and June 10 at Goyang Sports Complex.
The matches were expected to be highly anticipated by fans as they would be the last time Kim Min-jae and Lee Kang-in would play in their respective clubs’ jerseys. 메이저놀이터 It was also interesting to note that Kim Min-jae and Lee Kang-in were going head-to-head.
However, in the case of June 10, the consent of the Korean Professional Football Association was not obtained due to the fact that six K League games (three K League 1 and three K League 2) were held on the same day. The KFA approves invitational matches for foreign teams, but the federation’s consent is required.
On June 8, the KFA asked the consortium if they wanted to hold any of the matches. At the same time, the KFA also wanted to check the financial status of the consortium to see if they could afford to host a foreign team to avoid an event like Cristiano Ronaldo’s no-show.
