Chung Mong-gyu has no Intention of Resigning… Yoo In-chon “First you have to do your Job well”

While national attention is focused on the future of Korea Football Association President Chung Mong-gyu, Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism Yoo In-chon said, “In any case, doing a good job is the problem.”

Minister Yoo responded as follows to a reporter’s question about Chairman Chung’s possibility of a fourth term at the opening ceremony of the BNK Busan Bank 2024 Busan World Table Tennis Championships held at the BEXCO Special Stadium in Busan on the 17th.

Chairman Chung, who is serving his third term as president of the Football Association in January 2013, made a statement on the 16th when announcing the dismissal of former national football team coach Jurgen Klinsmann, suggesting the possibility of running for a fourth term. 카지노사이트

In response to this, Minister Yoo, as the minister in charge of sports administration, is interpreted as indirectly expressing a negative opinion while asserting the principle that the head of a sports organization must perform his/her duties flawlessly.

In the past, efforts were made to change the Articles of Incorporation to limit the term of office of the President of the Football Association to three consecutive terms, but in response to Chairman Chung’s comment that the Korea Sports Council and the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism did not approve the provision, Minister Yoo said, “I do not know the contents at all.”

“It’s because it didn’t change when I was (as minister),” he said.

According to the Football Association’s Articles of Incorporation, the term of office for the president is four years, and the president can be reappointed only once.

However, executives may be granted an exception to the limit on the number of consecutive terms through deliberation by the Sports Fair Committee of the Sports Association.

Chairman Chung’s current term ends in January 2025, with less than a year left, and if Chairman Chung attracts enough support from the soccer community, the results of the Korea Sports Association’s Fair Trade Commission deliberation will likely determine whether he will be elected to a fourth term.

The Sports Association’s Fair Trade Commission will evaluate whether Chairman Chung’s contribution is clear, including his financial contribution, performance in major international competitions during his tenure, and group evaluations.

Sports Chairman Lee Ki-heung, who happened to be visiting the opening ceremony of the World Table Tennis Championships in Busan, did not say anything about Chairman Chung’s possibility of a fourth term.

Chairman Lee said, “This is not what I will say here, but since our Fair Trade Commission is comprised of internal and external experts, you will make a good judgment.

And there is still some time, isn’t there?”

The Football Association received strong criticism after Klinsmann repeatedly performed poorly in the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Qatar Asian Cup, losing to Jordan and being eliminated in the semifinals.
