YouTuber Cho Pang-mae said in a video posted on the 28th, “Some players of Ulsan Hyundai have been severely scolded by coach Hong Myung-bo during off-season training.”
He, who accompanied him on the off-season training at the time, said, “Some players did something rude to a restaurant lady during the off-season training.” Then (Director Hong) said, “Is that what you should do as adults?”
Referring to the recent incident in which Ulsan Hyundai’s captain team was disciplined for racist remarks, he said, “Coach Hong is a style that asks players to do the basics instead of giving them a lot of freedom. “I think being a person is more important than being good at soccer, but since this has happened, I think I won’t be able to do SNS for the time being,” he said. 토토사이트
Cho Pang-mae told the same story in a video taken during off-season training in February. “I think some players didn’t clean up the food and just went,” he said. So the coach said, ‘I don’t need a player who is only good at soccer. I need a polite player,’ he scolded. It was very fresh,” he explained.
Meanwhile, Ulsan Hyundai’s Lee Myung-jae (hereinafter referred to as vice captain), Lee Kyu-sung, and Park Yong-woo, who caused controversy over racism, were suspended for one game and fined 15 million won on the 22nd. Ulsan Hyundai was also fined 30 million won for managing the team.
Lee Kyu-sung and Park Yong-woo are criticized for making racist remarks, such as calling Lee Myung-jae, who has dark skin, “like a Southeast Asian player,” on the 11th. Lee Myung-jae also became controversial because he sympathized with the conversation, saying, “It’s because of you, the Asian quarter.”
In response, Ulsan Hyundai said on its SNS on the 28th, “I also apologize to the fans who would have been greatly hurt by this incident. The club opposes all discrimination based on race, gender differences, disability, etc. and aims for an equal society. “We will continue to live with foreign workers, athletes, and multicultural families and create a culture of respect for each other,” he apologized.
