It seems that the Heungkuk Life Insurance volleyball team has a long way to go before it gets on the right track.
On the 11th, Heungkuk Life Insurance-Hyundai E&C exhibition was held at Samsan World Gymnasium in Incheon. Kim Dae-gyeong (36), acting manager of Heungkuk Life Insurance, was busy even before the game. He digested newspaper and broadcast interviews and held meetings with power analysts. Up to this point, it is similar to the general duties of a director.
However, acting Kim hit the ball himself and even played the role of tossing the ball to the players. It was to help the players attack and receive training. On the other hand, Hyundai E&C coach Kang Seong-hyung watched the players training and checked their condition. Acting Kim Dae-kyung was in an environment where he could not fully focus on the game plan because he was doing both coaching and supervisory work.
He does the same in training. A minimum of 3 coaches (including training assistants) are required to conduct training in teams of 6. Currently, only two coaches remain in Heungkuk Life Insurance, where head coach Kwon Soon-chan and head coach Lee Young-soo left. The number of registered coaches for the 7 women’s clubs is 3-4.
Acting Kim Dae-kyung said, “I have had a lot of difficulties because I have not had the experience of commanding a team from the bench, but I think that I should not damage the team. If I leave the team, there will be no staff to lead the team (virtually). I decided to stay for the sake of the players. “he said.
Heungkuk Life Insurance is operating abnormally amidst the controversy over “intervention from the top.” Hyung-joon Lim, CEO and owner of Heungkuk Life Insurance, dismissed coach Soon-chan Kwon on the 2nd, saying, “The direction we want to go is different.” Head coach Lee Young-soo also left the team after conducting only one game against GS Caltex (3-1 win) on the 5th. Heungkuk Life Insurance announced that it would appoint Kim Ki-joong, director of Sunseon Girls’ High School, as the new head coach without a formal contract. However, an absurd situation occurred in which coach Kim withered away after five days.
Recognizing the seriousness of the situation, the club also proposed to Kim to increase the number of coaches. Both coaches in their 30s have little coaching experience. Acting manager Kim Dae-gyeong joined Heungkuk Life Insurance this season, and coach Choi Ji-wan (31) is in his first year of leadership experience. Acting Kim and Kim Yeon-kyung (35, Heungkuk Life Insurance) have the same high school graduation year. Acting Kim said, “I can’t guarantee that the team atmosphere will improve just because someone comes in from the outside. So I’m thinking carefully.” 먹튀검증
2nd place Heungkuk Life Insurance was defeated with a set score of 2-3 in the lead Hyundai Engineering & Construction match on the 11th. He showed the potential to win the 3rd and 4th sets even after losing the 1st and 2nd sets. The difference between the two teams has widened slightly by 5 points, but Heungkuk Life Insurance still has Hyundai E&C in the pursuit. In order to win the championship, the team needs to be normalized. Acting Kim Dae-gyeong said, “I suggested that a (new) manager be appointed to the club as soon as possible. I will do my best to lead the team until a new leader arrives.”
Recruiting a new manager is not easy. As a result of this incident, the feeling of rejection for the directorship of Heungkuk Life Insurance grew. An official from the club said, “The next command tower must be carefully appointed. We plan to review it again from a blank slate.” Another club official asked, “Is there anyone who will come to Heungkuk Life Insurance right now, unless it is a foreign coach?” Hyundai Engineering & Construction Yang Hyo-jin, who played against Heungkuk Life on this day, said, “It was an impression that the team atmosphere was not well established because the coach left during the season. Of course, the team atmosphere will not be good.”
