A surprise pardon announcement for 100 people subject to disciplinary actions such as match-fixing. The Korea Football Association eventually withdrew the plan after three days, but the aftermath is still strong. Lee Young-pyo and Lee Dong-guk, vice presidents of the Korea Football Association, and Cho Won-hee, chairman of the Social Contribution Committee, expressed their intention to resign with a keen sense of responsibility, and all members of the board of directors also decided to resign.
The Korea Football Association said on the 4th, “The association’s vice-presidents and all board members expressed their intention to resign en masse this afternoon (4th).”
If an executive appointed according to the association’s articles of association submits a resignation letter, it is regarded as resigning regardless of acceptance. The butterfly effect that started with one amnesty announcement is making the Football Association stumble.
Park Kyung-hoon, executive director of the Korea Football Association, said, “As executive director in charge of the association’s practical administration, I felt deeply responsible for the current situation and deeply regretted it. Since the temporary board meeting last Friday, a number of directors have expressed their intention to resign.” All of the vice-presidents and board members felt great responsibility for the situation and reaffirmed that they had a sorry heart, and today all of them agreed to resign.”
The Korea Football Association said, “Although the collective resignation of the board members has been decided, we plan to come up with measures as soon as possible to prevent an administrative vacuum from occurring.”
Football fans are outraged. The Football Association decided to pardon 100 soccer players who were disciplined on the 28th of last month. Among them바카라, there were also those who participated in match-fixing in the past, which raised controversy. It was even announced an hour before the national team evaluation match with Uruguay, raising controversy.
In the end, due to strong opposition, the Korea Football Association held a temporary board meeting on the 31st, three days later, and decided to withdraw it. However, the controversy did not easily subside. The arrow was moved to those who were present when the amnesty decision was made. Among them, Lee Young-pyo and Lee Dong-guk, former vice presidents of the association, were included, and they eventually expressed their intention to resign through their social media.
However, the gaze of football fans is still not good. Suspicious eyes were infested as to whether juniors who were active in media activities as former star players, not the key figures to be responsible, had taken off their clothes with their guns on their arms.
Eventually, the board of directors resigned en masse on this day, and the situation seems to be settled to some extent. However, negative views toward Chairman Chung Mong-gyu still exist. Even though Chairman Chung announced an apology on the 31st of last month, football fans continue to criticize him for missing a sincere apology, reflection, and strong will not to repeat the same thing.
