Shin Ah-young, director of the Korea Football Association (KFA), announced a statement related to the amnesty.
On the 28th of last month, right before the Korea-Uruguay match, the Korea Football Association announced that it had “decided to pardon 100 former and incumbent players, coaches, and referees who were disciplined for various misconduct such as match fixing.”
The Korea Football Association cited it as a reason for congratulating itself on advancing to the finals of the World Cup 10 times in a row and advancing to the round of 16 in the World Cup in Qatar, which was achieved last year, and reflecting the opinion of the front line that proposed an amnesty for harmony and a new start in the soccer world.카지노사이트
Eventually, three days after the announcement, Chung Mong-gyu, head of the Korea Football Association, bowed his head and apologized, and withdrew the decision to pardon.
On the night of the 3rd, Lee Young-pyo, Korea Football Association Vice President Lee Dong-guk, and Korea Football Association Social Contribution Chairman Cho Won-hee announced that they would step down from their positions.
The association announced on the 4th that “the association’s vice-presidents and all directors expressed their intention to resign en masse this afternoon.”
Since then, Shin A-young, director of the Korea Football Association, who worked as an announcer and hosted various soccer programs, also issued a statement on the situation on social media.
The following is the full text of Shin A-young, director of the Korea Football Association.
First of all, I deeply apologize for the delay in expressing my position, as I know that no words can undo the concern I have caused to soccer fans, in case my hasty words and actions may cause more damage.
At that time, I was unable to attend the board meeting due to personal circumstances.
When I first received an offer from the association, I accepted the position with joy, knowing that I would be able to voice the field as a non-player and long-time soccer fan, even though I was aware of the undeserved responsibility.
However, I was unable to speak out when I was supposed to, and over the past few days, looking back at myself, I felt so ashamed and distressed at my incompetence.
sorry. I am well aware that non-participation cannot be an indulgence, and it is my fault and negligence without any excuse.
To soccer fans, we know very well that soccer has more meaning than sports. We know very well that this sign should not be taken lightly.
We sincerely apologize once again to all of you who have been irreparably hurt by this incident.
