Suwon Samsung Supporters’ Statement Against the Appointment of Yeom Ki-hoon, Head Coach, ‘Relegated to the Second Division’

While Suwon Samsung, which was demoted to the second division of the K-League, has decided to operate next season under Yeom Ki-hoon, its team’s supporters are opposing the move. They criticized the team for showing no willingness to reform itself.

Suwon supporter “Frente Tricolo” made a statement against the team on social media on the 19th when it was reported that the team’s internal decision to promote Yeom Ki-hoon, the current acting coach, to an official coach.

First of all, Yeom, acting coach, said, “It is not the best choice for promotion as he has no experience in coaching as an official coach.” Yeom played on the field as a playing coach until mid-2023 season, and led the team with the title as acting coach until the end of the season. However, Suwon ended the season at the bottom of the K-League 1, humiliatingly being demoted for the first time in the team’s history.

“Frente Tricolo” above all criticized the club for showing no willingness to reform. Judging from the club’s behavior so far, it is questionable whether it will give full power to the coach, adding, “The club’s front desk has fallen the team into the abyss by making choices that suit their taste, not making choices that benefit the club.”

He seems to have criticized Suwon’s “real blue” policy of placing star players as coaches. Suwon presents this as its philosophy, but its supporter sees it as a desperate measure taken by its parent company Samsung Electronics while reducing its support.

In a statement, Suwon supporters suggested forming a power-enhancing team, appointing professional coaches, and presenting visions through meetings with supporters. Regarding the supporter’s statement, a Suwon official said, “I don’t think it’s a criticism of coach Yeom Ki-hoon,” but added, “We will be able to present our vision through meetings only after the new CEO comes and has enough time to prepare a blueprint.” 사설 토토사이트
