Acting manager Lee Young-soo also leaves the team.
Acting coach Lee Young-soo of Heungkuk Life Insurance, women’s professional volleyball, announced his resignation after finishing the home game against GS Caltex with a set score of 3-2 on the 5th.
Heungkuk Life Insurance, which is promoting second place in the regular season, suddenly fired coach Kwon Soon-chan on the 2nd. I was with Director Kim Yeo-il. The manager argued that it did not match the direction of the club, but the controversy only increased. The fact that the coach intervened in the selection of players was known and caused controversy.
Head coach Lee Young-soo suddenly assumed the role of acting manager and led the game on the 5th. He laid down the baton after one game. Acting coach Lee said, “I tried to quit from the moment coach (Kwon Soon-chan) left. The coach said on the 2nd, ‘You have to endure’. Due to the circumstances, I was in charge of the GS Caltex match,” he said. “If I were there, it would be the same situation. I learned a lot from the director 토토. I decided (withdrawal) because I thought I shouldn’t remain uncomfortable,” he explained.
Shin Yong-jun, the new head of Heungkuk Life Insurance, said before the game on the 5th, “It is not at all involved in the selection of players. He was only involved in player rotation. I did it because YouTube and other fans wanted it.” Of course, this is also Kim Yeon-kyung and Kim Hae-ran, saying, “It is not true. The club also intervened in the selection of players, and all players knew about it. (The club) did what it wanted and then lost games.”
Acting Lee said, “I don’t know which fan came up with the story (related to the rotation). I tried everything with the director. I decided that it was the best position through practice and made a rotation,” he said.
He continued, “When I was in my first year of college, the director was in his fourth year. We often played games together,” he said. “I learned a lot about player guidance and game management while working with the coach at KB Insurance. I came here because I wanted to learn from the director.” He said, “Since the director’s style is meticulous and takes good care of me, I thought it would fit well with the women’s team. He also got along well with his staff. He always listened to the stories of the staff,” he added.
Regarding the players, “I worked hard all summer. Even in the situation with Corona 19, the remaining players played the KOVO Cup competition very hard,” he said. “I believed in the players. Everything has been good so far,” he said.
