“They said they were packing.”
On the 6th, Suwon FC coach Kim Do-kyun heard the sad news of the resignation of former Jeonbuk Hyundai coach Kim Sang-sik, ahead of the 11th round of the Hanawon Q K League 1 2023 against Gangwon FC. No matter how close he was, it was a bit difficult to contact him because he resigned during the season, and after checking the news, he calmly said, “I’ll have to call you later.”
On the 10th at the Daejeon World Cup Stadium, I asked coach Kim, who met Daejeon Hana Citizen in the 12th round, “Have you called a friend?” They say there are too many of them,” he said, expressing a sad situation.메이저사이트
He is coach Kim, who is well aware of being judged based on results and grades in a world of ruthless competition. He said, “What can I tell you? I told you to rest comfortably. I just said that if you rest, something better will happen.”

Former manager Kim could not stand the pressure from fans to resign due to poor performance and resigned on his own. Even though he won the K-League in the first year, second in the K-League and FA Cup in the second year, the sluggishness at the beginning of this year was insurmountable.
Director Kim, who heard that he would support Suwon FC a lot, said, “We beat Jeonbuk, and coach Choi Yong-soo’s Gangwon FC did the same. He said it depends on the outcome.
Former manager Kim, who resigned, was exposed defenselessly in front of the fans. The management of the club failed to improve the environment in which coach Kim listened to criticism and reprimands from fans. Coach Kim also pointed out this part and said, “Actually, I didn’t understand why the club was only watching. I wonder what it would have been like if it had been,” he said without hiding his regret for the unprotected leadership environment.
In addition to former manager Kim, Lee Byeong-geun, former Samsung manager in Suwon, also stepped down. As his successor, coach Kim Byung-soo, who had been sacked from Gangwon FC, came, but in his debut match against Jeonbuk, he collapsed 0-3.
Coach Kim said, “Both Suwon and Jeonbuk are good teams. Jeonbuk had national team players missing due to injuries. I think the decision to replace the manager) is a bit urgent,” he said, throwing a question mark at the management’s choice.
It is only natural that fans should be moved and accepted by football. However, coach Kim said, “It’s not that I can’t understand the hearts of the fans. I think I should have had a heart to wait a little longer,” hoping to create a culture of protected leaders.
