As the Korea Football Association (KFA) announced a surprise amnesty ahead of the game against Uruguay, soccer fans continue to criticize.
The Korea Football Association announced an amnesty on the 28th at 8:00 pm, less than an hour before the Uruguay friendly match held at the Seoul World Cup Stadium. 카지노사이트
The association said, “On the afternoon of the 28th, we held a board of directors meeting in the conference room of the Seoul World Cup Stadium and decided to pardon 100 soccer players who are being disciplined.”
As for the background of the amnesty, the association said, “Congratulations on advancing to the 10th World Cup in a row achieved last year and advancing to the round of 16 in the Qatar World Cup, and reflecting the opinions of the field that proposed an amnesty for harmony and a new start in the football world.” There is also the purpose of giving another chance to footballers who are judged to have reflected on themselves.”
Since it was suddenly announced in a festive atmosphere ahead of the match against Uruguay four months after the group stage of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, criticism from fans is even stronger. On the official SNS of the association, football fans responded that they were absurd about the amnesty, saying, “What does the amnesty have to do with the players advancing to the round of 16?”
Along with the announcement of the amnesty, the association said, “In order not to become an arbitrary story, the person who has been expelled is 7 years from the effective date of the disciplinary action, in the case of indefinite suspension of qualifications or indefinite suspension of participation, 5 years from the effective date of the disciplinary action, suspension of qualifications for a limited period of time or Those who were suspended from participating were those who had passed more than half of the disciplinary period, and were subject to pardon review.”
“People involved in sexual violence or sexual harassment were excluded, and even in the case of match fixing, those with a high degree of misconduct were excluded from the target of pardon,” he said. We plan to thoroughly prevent and supervise the incident so that it does not recur in all domestic games.”
However, as the amnesty was announced amid the recent heightened K-League fever with advancing to the World Cup round of 16, negative views and criticism towards the association are expected to continue for a while.
