Leaving behind the excitement of advancing to the round of 16 of the 2022 Qatar World Cup, conflicts between some players and the Korea Football Association are revealed on the surface during the tournament, predicting another wave.
The situation is foretelling a new phase as the Korea Football Association announced on its homepage on the 10th the position on the social media of Ahn Deok-soo, who is known as the personal rehabilitation trainer of national team captain Son Heung-min (Tottenham).
The incident started when Ahn Deok-soo posted a post criticizing the association on his social media on the 7th of last month.
At the time, Mr. Ahn raised his voice, saying, “A lot happened in Room 2701 (National Team Accommodation).”
In particular, in the process of Ahn taking care of the players, 먹튀검증 there was no support from the association for staying in Qatar, and Son Heung-min was known to have borne the cost, and the association was criticized a lot.
In response, the association also began to clarify through its official position about a month after the SNS post was posted.
However, the position statement released by the association also contains somewhat shocking content that some players demanded that the association’s medical team leader be excluded from work and return home because he is a key figure opposing Ahn Deok-soo’s joining the medical staff ahead of the match against Uruguay.
In particular, it is said that the players even suggested that if Ahn, who does not have a license, could not be hired as a mandatory staff member, it would be okay to register him as an equipment manager or another position and perform mandatory activities.
During this process, the association announced that a serious atmosphere was created internally, with many of the association’s support personnel dispatched to the region expressing their intention to “return to Korea immediately if the medical team leader A, who has done nothing wrong, is returned home.”
Requesting that the opponent’s status be revoked or suggesting an expedient for the employment of a trainer who did not have a relevant license is tantamount to an act of exceeding authority. In particular, the one who raised his voice is more likely to be a key player, which is more shocking.
Regarding the players in question, the association said, “The attitude of trying to fulfill the demands without recognizing the legal recruitment process was not appropriate. Also, it was a thoughtless act to make inappropriate remarks toward the medical staff and association staff, even though it was only a small part of it.”
