Reporter Ahn Hong-seok = Seongnam Mayor Shin Sang-jin, who mentioned the sale of Seongnam FC, expected the club to write a ‘drama’ for the new season.
On the 31st, the Seongnam club released a press release titled ‘Seongnam FC owner Shin Sang-jin’s banquet, a promise for a new start’.
According to the press release, the club secretariat, players, and youth coaches had a dinner with Mayor Shin at a restaurant in Unjung-dong, Bundang-gu, Seongnam the evening before.
The club said, “The new owner honestly shared with the club members the process of deciding to revitalize the club, along with his feelings as the owner as the club’s past and relegation overlapped, and reflected on the reason for the club’s existence. I encouraged and encouraged them to start,” he said.
In addition, he said, “(The new owner) asked for a special will to make a drama in which all members unite and rise from the floor.”
Last year, when Lee Jae-myung, the current head of the Democratic Party of Korea, was suspected of corruption when he was mayor of Seongnam, and the club’s office was seized and searched, the club’s atmosphere was shaken out of control. I don’t want to be the owner. I have to sell it to a company or find some third way.”
In the midst of already bad performance, Seongnam even added to the turbulent atmosphere following Mayor Shin’s ‘sale remark’, and eventually ended up at the bottom of K League 1 and was demoted to K League 2 메이저놀이터.
According to the club, on this day, the players presented Mayor Shin with a banner with their own resolutions for the season, and Mayor Shin shook hands with each player and encouraged them.
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.” I will make it happen,” he said.
Captain Shim Dong-woon conveyed the determination of the players by saying, “If our opponent meets us this season, we will run with determination and eyes that will make us die.”
Seongnam, which has completed Thailand battery training, will leave for the second battery training in Namhae, Gyeongsangnam-do on the 1st.
On the 18th, he plans to hold a launching ceremony to meet the new mayor and fans and pledge to be promoted.
