“I received a notice of resignation.”
Suwon Samsung coach Lee Byeong-geun opened his mouth after thinking for a long time. Director Lee eventually breaks up with Suwon. The Suwon club said, “We are thinking about the part where the director said he would take responsibility. Nothing has been decided yet.” But the end seems set.
Suwon lost 2-3 in the 7th round home game of ‘Hanawon Q K League 1 2023’ against Jeju United held at Suwon World Cup Stadium on the 15th. Suwon is at the bottom of the table with 2 draws and 5 losses (2 points) in the opening 7 matches.
Coach Lee bowed his head for not recording his first win. Right after the game against Jeju, he said, “I also have my shortcomings. I have to take responsibility for the result. I think I have to take responsibility because I made a mistake. I could see that the new players also went into difficult situations and played for the team. Anyway, this game is a homework we have to solve. I hope the players don’t become weak or discouraged.” A question mark hung over his path. Suwon came to a conclusion in just two days. It was a breakup with the director.
In an interview with Sports Chosun, Lee said, “I was notified today (17th). I just… It leaves me with regret,” he said. His words were very short. But it took him quite a while before he said it.
As a founding member of Suwon, coach Lee has won the championship 16 times. He even served as captain. He became the 7th manager of Suwon in April of last year. Director Lee, more than anyone else, wanted to rebuild Suwon’s prestigious family. However, he experienced a downfall in the promotion playoffs (PO) last season. He aimed for a turnaround this season, but was sluggish amid a series of injuries to some key players. 토토사이트
Ahead of this season, he said, “As long as I am the manager, I have the idea that we want to regain the reputation of our Suwon when they did well in the past. So, although we do not have as much support as Ulsan Hyundai and Jeonbuk Hyundai, we gather players well and support the players.” I will do my best to achieve the results that the fans want by uniting well with the players. I think I want to achieve it with the players. I also met the former coach and talked to him. I want to regain the reputation of Suwon Samsung in the past, and I hope that this year will be a good year. I promise to do it.” However, the ending between director Lee and Suwon is coming to an end with regret.
