Busan I-Park head coach Park Jin-seop has resigned from his position due to poor performance.

On the 8th, the Busan club announced, “Coach Park Jin-seop announced his resignation to the club after the home game against Bucheon FC on the 6th, feeling responsible for the poor performance. We have ended our relationship by mutual agreement,” the club said.

Park, who was appointed in June 2022, led Busan to the “brink of promotion” last season.

Busan finished the 2023 season with 20 wins, 10 draws, and six losses to finish in second place (70 points). At the time, they were only one point behind Gimcheon Sangmu (71 points), who won the K League 2 title and were promoted straight to the top division.

Busan, which was leading Gimcheon until the last minute, lost its last game and allowed Gimcheon to overtake it, and has been competing in the second division this season as it sought to move to the top division through the promotion playoffs (PO) but could not get past Suwon FC.

This season, Busan has only won six, drawn five and lost eight in 19 matches, dropping to ninth place.

After defeating Seongnam FC 1-0 on May 19, Busan went seven games without a win (four draws and three losses), starting with a 2-3 loss against Cheonan City FC on May 22, and eventually Park was relieved of his duties.

The Busan club said, “We will quickly appoint a new coach. For the time being, coach Yoo Kyung-ryul will serve as acting head coach,” the club said. 토토사이트
