Women’s professional volleyball Heungkuk Life Insurance, which has recently been on the cutting board of controversy due to the club’s incomprehensible manager hardship, has appointed Kim Ki-joong (48), current Sunseon Girls’ High School coach, as the new head coach.

Heungkuk Life Insurance announced on the 6th that “Director Kim Ki-joong, who has rich experience and leadership in the field, was judged to be the right person and appointed him.”

Coach Kim Ki-joong, who became the new head coach of former manager Kwon Soon-chan, who was notified of his resignation from the club during the season, was given the difficult responsibility of resolving the chaotic team atmosphere.

Coach Kim Ki-joong graduated from Sungkyunkwan University and has been active as a player at Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance since 1997. After his retirement, he built his leadership career at GS Caltex, LIG ​​and Hyundai Capital. He served as the head coach at Heungkuk Life Insurance for four years from 2018, contributing to the combined championship in the 2018-19 season and advancing to the championship match in the 2020-21 season.

Director Kim Ki-joong, who is also a friend of the same age as former coach Kwon Sun-chan, who played together at Sungkyunkwan University and Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance, has the advantage of knowing the internal circumstances of Heungkuk Life Insurance well. Even after former manager Park Mi-hee left the team after the 2021-22 season, it was considered a strong ‘director candidate’.

The Heungkuk Life Insurance team said, “I am sorry for causing concern to fans and volleyball officials who love volleyball about the recent situation.” said.

Manager Kim Ki-joong said, “I have shared the joys and sorrows with the players at Heungkuk Life Insurance for the past four years 토토사이트. He returned to Heungkuk Life Insurance and took on a new challenge as manager,” he said. Coach Kim Ki-joong will lead the team from the match against IBK Industrial Bank, which will be held at the Hwaseong Gymnasium on the 8th.

Prior to this, on the 2nd, Hyeong-jun Lim, owner of Heungkuk Life Insurance, announced the resignation of manager Kwon Soon-chan and general manager Kim Yeo-eul for the vague reason that “the club does not match the direction the club wants to go.” He decided to break up. It was an unbelievable decision that he came from a team that ranked first in crowd mobilization and second in the regular league middle ranking.

In this regard, suspicions arose that the manager and general manager had been sacked when the owner had a conflict even though he tried to intervene in the manager’s appointment of players. Regarding this, Shin Yong-joon, new head of Heungkuk Life Insurance, said ahead of the Incheon GS Caltex match on the 5th, “Former coach Kwon and former general manager Kim Yeo-il had a conflict over the rotation (front and back placement) of Kim Yeon-kyung and Yelena Mrazenovich (registered name Yelena). It caused more controversy when he explained, “It is not a matter of appointing players,” saying that the owner was hard. In other words, he admitted that not only the former general manager but also the superiors intervened in the running of the game.

After the game, head coach Lee Young-soo, whom the club appointed as acting manager, also resigned as soon as the game with GS Caltex ended. Kim Yeon-kyung, a senior member of the team, said, “It is true that there was talk about the appointment of players, and there were cases where (the club) did as they wanted and then lost several times.” .

He continued, “I don’t understand it any more if the former manager Kwon Soon-chan was fired for the reason that Director Shin made it public.” In that way, all coaches could be hardened.”
