Responsible for poor performance End of 14-year relationship Kim
Doo-Hyeon head coach with temporary baton
Kim Do-Hoon, Kim Hak-Beom, Yoon Jung-Hwan, etc. Director Park Ji-Sung Highly likely to lean toward a foreign leader
during the ‘Recommendation Rights’ event Professional soccer Jeonbuk Hyundai has been active in Jeonbuk as a player and leader for over 14 years Director Kim Sang-sik (47) announced his resignation. Attention is focusing on who will be the successor who will rebuild the majesty of the famous family that has been ruined in the midst of a total crisis. Jeonbuk announced on the 4th that “Director Kim Sang-shik has resigned.” The club and the parent company (Hyundai Motors) accepted the intention of resignation, which manager Kim had twice 메이저사이트 communicated himself, the day before. Coach Kim, who played as a Jeonbuk player from 2009 to 2013, was promoted to coach in 2021 after assisting former coach Choi Kang-hee and coach Jose Morais (Portugal) as a coach from 2014 to 2020. Although the contract was renewed at the end of last year, his second term ended after half a season. Jeonbuk is in 10th place (3 wins, 1 draw and 6 losses) out of 12 teams. Although the veterans were sent out and the squad was reorganized on a large scale, the resulting decline in organizational power and the succession of injuries combined with the results fell to the relegation zone. As CEO Heo Byeong-gil set up a confrontation with the supporters, the relationship between the club and the supporters was broken and the number of spectators decreased. Jeonbuk entrusted the temporary baton to head coach Kim Doo-hyun. Coach Kim also sits on the bench for the Seoul expedition on Children’s Day.
Jeonbuk and its parent company, Hyundai Motor Company, have begun the process of appointing a new coach. Kim Do-hoon, Kim Hak-beom, and Yoon Jeong-hwan are named as candidates. Park Ji-seong, technical director of Jeonbuk (director in charge of power reinforcement), is expected to play a significant role in appointing a new manager. Park Ji-sung was deeply involved in the reappointment of manager Kim Sang-sik and the recruitment of large-scale players. You cannot be free from responsibility for poor grades and the resignation of the coach. It is known that Park Ji-sung even has the right to recommend a director.
If director Park Ji-seong recommends a successor, there is a high chance that he will be a foreign coach. Recruitment of foreign coaches is mostly done in long-term plans after the end of the season. In order for foreign leaders to play their part, they must guarantee a tenure of at least 3 to 5 years in accordance with the club management philosophy and team vision.
During a crisis during the season, it is rare to appoint a foreign leader. This is because I do not know exactly what kind of philosophy I have because I have not experienced it myself, and appointing a foreigner who is unfamiliar with the Korean soccer culture and situation can be another anxiety factor in a crisis. If Hyundai Motor Company virtually gives up on its performance this season, it may appoint a foreign leader. If so, the leader recommended by Park Ji-sung can be empowered.
Conversely, if Hyundai Motor Company cannot give up its performance this season, it is relatively likely to select a domestic leader. As a global company, Hyundai Motor Company considers participation in the Asian Champions League (ACL) very important.
Jeonbuk must participate in the ACL group stage in the 2023-2024 season in August. In addition, to secure the right to participate in the ACL next season, you must finish in the top 3 of the K-League this season or win the Korea Football Association Cup (FA Cup). In order to improve this year’s performance, a domestic leader with the ability to accurately grasp the players, the ability to control the squad, the ability to perform elaborate tactics and strategies, and the ability to collaborate with the current coaching staff is needed.
