Foreign media reported that coach Marcelo Abondanza, who ate rice with Kim Yeon-kyung, was appointed as the new command tower of professional volleyball Heungkuk Life Insurance. An official from the club drew a line on the confirmed news, saying, “We have interviewed about six people so far, and Abondanja is only one of them.”

“The era of Marcelo Abondanza of Heungkuk Life Insurance opens,” said Turkiye Media Volleyball Magazine on the same day.

An official from Heungkuk Life Insurance said, “Nothing has been decided yet.” Heungkuk Life Insurance is planning the contract period for the new manager to be two years.

Director Abondanza, born in Italy, is a master of leadership who has led in Turkey and Poland. In 2013, he took the baton of Türkiye Fenerbahçe and worked with Kim Yeon-kyung, who had been on the team since 2011. Kim Yeon-kyung and coach Abondanza have won two league championships and the European Volleyball Federation (CEV) Cup in four seasons from the 2013-2014 season.

When asked, “Is Kim Yeon-kyung’s persuasion to remain at Heungkuk Life Insurance in relation to the appointment of the director?”, “It is not at that level. It would be best for Kim Yeon-kyung, who is still the best player, to remain on the team, but the team must prepare for both retirement and free agency anyway.” said.

Earlier, after the match against Pepper Savings Bank on the 15th, Kim Yeon-kyung said, “It is a lie if I say that I have no intention of retiring at all” regarding the retirement rumor surrounding him. She used to think that when she was in the highest position, it would be good to put down her seat. If he retires, I think that would be the decision,” she said. 메이저사이트

However, he added, “Nothing has been decided yet,” and he left open the possibility of extending his career as a player. There is also a possibility that he will postpone his retirement for a short period of 1-2 years. There is no obstacle according to the Korean Volleyball Federation (KOVO) regulations. An official from KOVO said, “To acquire the next free agent, you have to play for three seasons, and it does not matter whether you play for one year or two when signing a free agent contract.”
