Former national soccer team coach Choi Tae-wook, who has been indicted on charges of conspiring with an agent to accept money to get his former student into a professional K League club, has been banned from working with the Korean Football Association’s Technical Study Group, or TSG.
The federation will discuss whether to impose further discipline based on the outcome of the trial process and the judgment of the Korea Football Association’s Fairness Committee.
According to the prosecution’s announcement earlier in the day, former coach Choi is facing embezzlement charges for allegedly colluding with his agent, Choi Moe, in handing over money to former president Lee Jong-geol and former head coach Lim Jong-heon of professional soccer’s K League 2 Ansan FC.
The prosecution believes that there is sufficient criminal activity in Choi’s charges and has requested a formal trial.소닉카지노
The statutory penalty for the crime of bribery is up to two years in prison or a fine of up to 5 million won.
However, Choi escaped immediate jail time.
Choi, a member of the 2002 Korea-Japan World Cup quarterfinals, retired from football in 2014 and turned to coaching, assisting former national team coach Paulo Bento since 2018, helping the national team reach the round of 16 at last year’s CAF Confederations Cup.
