Three Korean leaders in the Chinese league, along with Choi Kang-hee and Seo Jeong-won.
Coach Ki-il Nam, who resigned from professional soccer K-League 1 Jeju United after taking responsibility for poor performance, will advance to the Chinese league. The destination is Henan, where Korean leaders such as Kim Hak-beom and Jang Oe-ryong took command.
The Henan club officially announced on the 7th (Korean time) that it had appointed coach Nam through its website and Instagram. 안전 토토사이트
Henan is a club that was founded in 1958 and turned professional in 1994. Current Jeju United coach Hak-beom Kim has been in charge of this club for six months since 2010. Coach Joe Bonfrere, who coached the Korean national soccer team from 2004 to 2005, worked in Henan for six months in 2011. In 2018, coach Jang Oe-ryong, who led Incheon United, took charge of the team.
Henan, who had entrusted the baton to Spanish coaches since 2020, once again chose Korean coach Nam. Henan has yet to win the Chinese first division. Last year, he finished only 10th out of 16 teams in the first division.
With this, the number of Koreans leading the Chinese league team increased to three. Following Shandong Taishan coach Choi Kang-hee and Chengdu Longcheng coach Seo Jeong-won, coach Nam will also play an active role in the Chinese league. Shandong ranked second in the league last year, and Chengdu ranked fourth.
Coach Nam, who resigned from Jeju last year, aimed to restore his pride.
He took office as Jeju’s 16th head coach in 2020, promoted Jeju to the first division along with winning the K-League 2 in the 2020 season, and led the team to advance to Final A (higher split) for two consecutive seasons (2021-2022). However, in September of last year, he resigned after going 5 games in a row without a win (1 draw, 4 losses) and failing to advance to Final A, where the top 6 teams compete for the league title and a spot in the next Asian Football Confederation Champions League.
Coach Nam was nicknamed ‘Promotion Evangelist’ because he was good at promoting low-ranking teams. He started his career as a coach at Gwangju FC in the second division in 2011 and succeeded in being promoted to the first division as acting manager in 2013. In 2018, after becoming the manager of Seongnam FC in the second division, he promoted them to the first division one year later. He promoted Jeju in 2020 and led the team until last year.
Coach Nam, who worked tirelessly for more than 10 years before resigning from Jeju and traveling to Europe to experience world soccer, is now taking on the challenge of playing on the Chinese stage. 카지노사이트존
