January 10 News In response to Sun Xingmin’s personal physiotherapist An Dezhu’s remarks after the World Cup bombarded the Korean Football Association, South Korea
The Football Association responded to this.
During the World Cup, some players of the South Korean team approached the head of the national team of the Korean Football Association and asked for the immediate dismissal of the medical team leader A. The reason was that A opposed An Dezhu’s joining the medical team.
One of the medical staff of the Football Association has no relevant qualifications, but still hired him, so the Football Association is lying and deliberately crowding out Ahn Deok-soo in the name of not having relevant qualifications.”
But in fact, A, the head of the medical team, did not object to An Dezhu joining the medical team, but because Ahn Desu had not registered with the Korean Football Association from the beginning, and did not meet the conditions for having a qualification certificate, so the Korean Football Association did not agree after discussion.
To hire him, even if the players ask for it, the Football Association has no way to hire an unqualified person who has not participated in the recruitment announcement.
It is true that player B does not have a relevant qualification certificate, but the situation between B and Ahn Deok-soo is different.
The Korean Football Association and B renewed their contract for two years in 2020. At that time, the relevant qualification-related laws and regulations had not yet been implemented (from February 2021), so the contract signed later required the relevant qualifications again.
Before the original signed contract expires (B’s contract expires at the end of 2022), if you cannot obtain the relevant qualifications, you cannot renew the contract with the Football Association.
B took the physical therapist exam in December last year and finally passed.
The Korean Football Association regrets that An Dezhu publicly questioned the behavior of the Football Association and medical staff on his personal social media without any basis.
The Korean Football Association is well aware that Ahn Deok-soo, who is trusted by the players, has made a lot of efforts for the players, but regardless of his professional ability, his remarks on the national team’s medical team and instilling objections to the players are legally inappropriate.
This eventually led to the players’ distrust of the national team’s medical staff, which brought great confusion to the team’s management.
Although there are only a very small number of players, their inappropriate remarks to the medical staff and the Football Association management staff are obviously not well-thought-out behaviors.
