Seongnam Mayor Shin Sang-jin, who mentioned the possibility of selling Seongnam FC, met with the players and pledged a new start.
According to the Seongnam club on the 31st, the players, the secretariat, and youth coaches had a dinner with Mayor Shin at a restaurant in Unjung-dong, Bundang-gu, Seongnam the evening before.
The club said, “Mayor Shin honestly shared with the members of the club the process of deciding to revive the club, along with the feelings he felt as the owner as the club’s past unsavory events and relegation overlapped, and reflected on the reason for the club’s existence. He encouraged and encouraged them to make a fresh start.”
He added, “The new owner asked for a special will to create a drama in which all members unite and rise from the ground.”
On this day, the players gave the new owner a banner with their resolutions in their own handwriting, and the new owner is known to have shaken hands with the players and encouraged them.
Shin said in an interview last year when the club’s office was seized and searched due to suspicions of corruption during the Seongnam Mayor of Lee Jae-myung, the current Democratic Party representative, and said in an interview, “Sungnam FC has become a byword for corruption. Either sell it or find some third way.”스포츠토토
Seongnam, which was falling due to poor performance, was shaken more by the remarks of Mayor Shin, and was eventually relegated to the bottom of the K League 1 in the 2022 season.
Coach Lee Ki-hyung said, “It was a place where I could reflect on the affection and will of the owner. I deeply touched the words of making a drama. “He made up his mind.
Captain Shim Dong-woon conveyed the determination of the players, saying, “If our opponent meets us this season, we will run with determination and eyes that will make us die.”
On the other hand, Seongnam, which has completed the Thai winter field training, will leave for the second field training in Namhae, Gyeongsangnam-do on February 1st.
Then, on February 18, a launching ceremony will be held to meet with the new mayor and fans to pledge promotion.
