The Korea Football Association (KFA) appoints a new board of directors.
The Korea Football Association announced on the afternoon of the 2nd, “At 10:00 am on the 3rd, Chung Mong-gyu, head of the Korea Football Association, will hold a press conference and announce a new list of directors.”
reform is inevitable. The Football Association announced on the 4th of last month, “The association’s vice-presidents and all board members expressed their intention to resign en masse this afternoon.” If an executive appointed according to the association’s articles of association submits a resignation letter, it is regarded as resigning regardless of acceptance. Therefore, the Football Association has been confused without a board of directors for the past month.
The resignation of all board members is unprecedented. The Football Association held a board of directors meeting on March 28 and decided to pardon 100 soccer players under disciplinary action. Among the 100 pardoned are 48 players who were expelled in 2011 for match fixing in professional football. Because of this, it created a big wave.
At the time, the Football Association said, “We congratulated ourselves on advancing to the 10th consecutive World Cup last year and advancing to the round of 16 in the World Cup in Qatar, and reflected the opinions of the frontlines who proposed an amnesty for harmony and a new start in the football world. There is also the purpose of giving another chance to footballers who are judged to have self-reflection and self-reflection for a long time.” It
became even more controversial. Retired players and soccer officials also expressed their opposition to the Football Association’s amnesty for snatchers.
In the end, it was covered with something that hadn’t happened in 3 days. The Football Association held a temporary board of directors meeting on March 31st and decided to withdraw the pardon, a disciplinary football decision made on the 28th. As a result, the amnesty of a total of 100 disciplinary soccer players, including 48 participants in match-fixing in professional soccer, was completely canceled.
The board of directors expressed dissatisfaction with the Football Association’s ‘failure’ and resigned. Football Association vice presidents Lee Dong-guk and Lee Young-pyo and Korea Football Association Social Contribution Chairman Cho Won-hee expressed their intention to resign at this time. Shin A-young, director of the Football Association, also bowed her head and left.
Former Vice Chairman Lee Dong-guk said, “It was an agenda that has been progressed to a large extent within the association, but I feel a sense of responsibility for not being able to stop it by confidently speaking about my experience as a former Gyeonggi player. As Vice-Chairman, I lacked a lot to fulfill my duties. I am completely aware of my responsibility for this, and I intend to resign from the position as of the current time.”메이저놀이터
