As public opinion worsened at the Korea Football Association’s decision to pardon 100 footballers who were being disciplined for match-fixing, etc., it was decided to re-deliberate it.
The Korea Football Association said, 바카라사이트“We decided to hold a temporary board meeting at the Soccer Hall on the 31st to reexamine the disciplinary pardon decided by the board of directors on the 28th.” Regarding the sudden meeting of the board of directors, he explained, “There are many concerns about this resolution, so we decided to hold it for a quick re-discussion.”
On the 28th, the association announced that it had decided to pardon 100 footballers, including former and incumbent players, leaders, referees, and group executives who were disciplined for various misconduct. The pardon also included 48 players who were expelled in 2011 for match-fixing in professional football.
The 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 front line who proposed an amnesty for harmony and a new start in the football world. There is also the purpose of giving another chance to talented soccer players,” he explained.
However, criticism arose immediately after the announcement. The reason was that the Korean national team’s advancement to the World Cup round of 16 had nothing to do with pardoning soccer players who were being disciplined. In particular, public opinion was aggravated by the pardon of those who committed an irreversible misconduct called match fixing. There was also a lot of talk about not disclosing the list of 100 players and the sudden announcement an hour before the Korea-Uruguay friendly match.
Eventually, the association decided to reconsider it.
