Lawyer Son Su-ho, a ‘soccer fan’, also came out in a fit of controversy over the surprise pardon of the Korea Football Association (KFA).
Attorney Son Su-ho, who is also a well-known K-League Incheon United fan, said on his social media on the 29th, “match fixing undermines the objectivity and fairness of professional sports, and undermines the foundation of professional sports.” You shouldn’t look at it. Don’t be fooled, you have to look at the entire 100 pardoned people,” he pointed out.
Next, Lawyer Son said, “I have to be able to confidently and proudly say, ‘I am a sports fan, I am a soccer fan, please pay attention to Korean soccer, anytime, anywhere, but it has become very difficult.’” “This amnesty is not the fault of the fans. Shame is the responsibility of the fans. It’s disastrous,” he said bitterly.
This article by Lawyer Sohn is a criticism of the decision to amnesty a soccer player, which was carried out by the Korea Football Association at around 7 pm the previous day (28th). The KFA held a board of directors meeting in the conference room of the Seoul World Cup Stadium and decided to pardon 100 soccer players under disciplinary action.
The KFA said, “Persons subject to amnesty include former and current players, coaches, referees, and group executives who are being disciplined for various misconduct. Among the targets, 48 players who were expelled in 2011 for match-fixing in professional football were included.” It is the first time in 14 years since 2009 that measures have been taken.”
Attorney Sohn also appeared on ‘Esta TV’, a YouTube channel specializing in soccer, and responded to the KFA’s pardon announcement, saying, “It seems crazy. They pardoned match-fixing. There must have been one person they wanted to save among them. I don’t know who they pardoned.” I think I’ve lost my mind. Isn’t it like match fixing? What are you thinking?”
In fact, the KFA’s amnesty measures are not convincing soccer fans in any of the subjects, timing, methods, and justifications. The pardon recipients were not properly disclosed, and it was announced an hour before the kick-off of Uruguay and A match, trying to avoid the attention of the media and fans focused on Uruguay and A match.
Moreover, he put forward a separate justification for pardon, saying, “We celebrated last year’s 10th consecutive World Cup advancement and advancing to the Qatar World Cup round of 16, and reflected the opinions of the field who proposed an amnesty for harmony and a new start in the football world.”
In addition, he said,메이저사이트 “Even in the case of match fixing, people with a high degree of misconduct were excluded from the pardon,” and “we are closely watching so that there is no misunderstanding that this pardon has changed the association’s basic position on match fixing.”
The K-League is attracting spectators in the aftermath of the Qatar World Cup this year and the mitigation of the corona pandemic. The K-League 1 set the record for the largest number of spectators after the promotion and relegation system was introduced. However, KFA is making a regrettable decision while blaming its fans for disappointment.
