The ‘remaining 52 people’ hiding behind the match manipulator… Will the outline be revealed this time?

Although covered by 48 match-fixers, there are those who should not be forgotten. It is the remaining 52 people who are waiting for indulgence from the Korea Football Association (KFA). 

On the 30th, KFA decided to hold a temporary board meeting at 4:00 p.m. It was held for re-discussion.”

First of all, it is a picture of KFA taking a step back due to strong opposition from public opinion. On the 28th, at 7:00 pm, the KFA officially announced that it had held a board meeting in the conference room of the Seoul World Cup Stadium and decided to pardon 100 soccer players who are being disciplined, under the title of ‘Execution of Amnesty for 100 Footballers’, and was embroiled in controversy. .

Those subject to pardon are former and current players, coaches, referees, and group executives who are being disciplined for various misconduct. Among those targeted are 48 players who were expelled in 2011 for match-fixing in professional football.

The reason is absurd. KFA cited 10 consecutive World Cup advances, advancing to the round of 16 at the Qatar World Cup, harmony in the soccer world and a new start. He added an obvious excuse, saying, “The purpose is to give another chance to footballers who are judged to have self-reflection and self-reflection for a long time.”

The timing of the announcement was also a ‘snatch’. The KFA not only passed the amnesty bill behind closed doors, but made an official announcement one hour before the kick-off against Uruguay. And 5 minutes later, the starting list for the match was revealed. It can only be seen as a trick to avoid reporters’ coverage and fans’ attention as much as possible.

Unsurprisingly, fans were furious. Match-fixing is a serious crime that shakes the foundation of sports. Professional sports that lose the basic principles of fairness and trust cannot survive. Needless to say how badly the K-League was hurt by the match-fixing scandal 12 years ago.

We must not forget the 52 people who hid behind the match-fixing participants. At present, it is unknown who the majority of them are, let alone what they did wrong. A KFA official also said that it would be difficult to disclose the details of the disciplinary action at this time, and asked for reference to the existing statement and the press release to be announced additionally. 

However, even if you look at the statements announced twice, it is clear that sexual abusers were excluded. Based on the contents of past disciplinary actions, it can only be inferred as violence, embezzlement, breach of trust, and biased judgment.

Fans are demanding the full release of the pardon list, but KFA has a different idea. KFA said, “When the results of the Fair Committee are announced, the list of persons subject to disciplinary action is not disclosed to the public. In this situation, disclosing the list of persons subject to pardon is announcing the fact of disciplinary action, which may violate the Personal Information Protection Act and cause defamation. There is,” he said.

It is not known what conclusions KFA will make at the temporary board meeting. The amnesty plan can be completely withdrawn, or the amnesty can be canceled only for the 48 match-manipulators who have been criticized. In the worst case, it may stick to the position of pardoning all 100 people.

One thing is certain: if it had not been for this re-discussion, the remaining 52 would have been exonerated for using the match-fixing 48 as arrowheads.메이저사이트 Unlike the virtually known match-fixing participants, it is difficult to even guess who they are. It is a golden opportunity for them to quietly wash away their past mistakes and step into the soccer world again.

The water has already been spilled, but we must collect it as much as possible even now. If KFA really wants to pardon disciplinary soccer players, it should go through a transparent discussion, not an arbitrary decision. 

It is not necessary to judge alone “I have undergone a lot of reflection while receiving discipline for a long time”, but it is necessary to collect public opinion and the opinions of many stakeholders. Needless to say, additional explanations about the 52 people shrouded in a veil. Fans’ eyes now turn to the temporary board of directors.
