The aftermath of the ‘pardon controversy’… The resignation of the entire board of directors of the Korea Football Association, Chairman Mong-gyu Chung hides behind

vice-presidents and directors of the Korea Football Association, including Vice-Chairman Lee Young-pyo and Vice-Chairman Lee Dong-guk, resigned after feeling a sense of responsibility for the recent ‘pardon controversy’ of the Korea Football Association.

However, Chairman Chung Mong-kyu, who should bear the greatest responsibility, is keeping his post.

On the 28th of last month, the Korea Football Association unexpectedly pardoned as many as 100 people, including match-fixing participants, but withdrew it in full due to strong headwinds.

Vice Chairman Lee Young-pyo and Vice Chairman Lee Dong-guk, who were members of the board of directors, were the first to resign, taking responsibility for failing to prevent the passage of the amnesty bill on the spot.카지노

Former vice-president Lee once again expressed his apology through social media, saying that as a member of the Football Association, he felt all the reprimands from football fans.

Former Vice Chairman Lee Dong-guk also resigned, saying that he felt responsible for not preventing the passage of the amnesty bill by confidently sharing his experience as a Gyeonggi-doer.
