Ulsan CEO Kim Kwang-guk apologized on the club’s official channel on the 28th. The content recently bowed to Park Yong-woo, Lee Myung-jae, Lee Kyu-sung, Jung Seung-hyun and former team managers’ racist conversations on social network services (SNS).
They shared the act of disparaging Lee Myung-jae’s skin color on SNS. In the process, he was criticized even more for mentioning the real name of Cho Jong-rak (Thailand), who played for Jeonbuk Hyundai in the past.
Accordingly, the Korea Professional Football Federation imposed a suspension of one game and a fine of 15 million won on Park Yong-woo, Lee Kyu-sung, and Lee Myung-jae, respectively, on the 22nd. The Ulsan club was also fined 30 million won to take responsibility for managing the team. Jung Seung-hyun was excluded from disciplinary action because he did not mention racism. 토토
Ulsan, which had been struggling for six days after the federation’s disciplinary action was confirmed, posted an apology. Representative Kim said, “The club will officially deliver an apology and an explanation of the incident to Chumsa-rak, who heard racist remarks. In addition, he said, “I will deliver an accurate explanation and apology to the club and its association to which the player belongs.”
At the same time, “The club opposes all discrimination based on race, gender differences, disability, etc. and aims for an equal society. In the future, we will continue to live with foreign workers, athletes, and multicultural families and create a culture of respect for each other,” he said.
Ulsan said, “As judged by the Federation’s reward and punishment committee, there is no intention of derogation or ridicule, but when it is opened to a third party, it does not end with their own conversation.” “I learned a lesson from someone that it can be discrimination with wounds,” he said. “The team, coaches, and the front desk will all recognize the severity of the weight and act.”
