(Deputy Chief Prosecutor Kim Hyun-ah) announced on the 13th that it had indicted Lee and Bae Mo, the head of the Ansan FC powerhouse team, on charges of embezzlement. Three others, Hong Mo-soo, a player’s father, Choi Mo-soo, an elementary school soccer coach, and Choi Tae-wook, a former national coach, who provided money in exchange for recruitment, 스포츠토토 were handed over to trial together on charges of embezzlement.

the head of Ansan FC’s power enhancement team, was sent to trial for receiving 30 million won from agent Choi in exchange for joining the team.
The player’s father, Hong, was charged with providing Lee with a Mercedes-Benz car in exchange for the player’s signing, while former national coach Choi Tae-wook and elementary school soccer coach Choi were charged with conspiring with the agent to provide money to Lee and former coach Lim in exchange for the player’s signing.
The prosecution said it had fully reinvestigated the fraud case of Choi, an agent who was previously detained by the police, and identified a systemic problem of K League 1 and K League 2 professional soccer clubs and coaches accepting money in the name of personnel expenses and development funds from players joining the clubs, but dismissing it as a practice.
According to prosecutors, some coaches lied to players about getting them into professional teams to extort money. In the case of some civic clubs, the CEO accepted money for signing players who had nothing to do with the club’s needs, or received money in exchange for coaching positions.
In July, prosecutors indicted Lim on charges of embezzlement, fraud, and violation of the Criminal Proceeds of Crime Act. On the same day, prosecutors also indicted Shin Mo, the former head coach of Yonsei University’s soccer team, Shin Mo, the head coach of a professional team, and Kim Mo, the head coach of Soongsil University’s soccer team. They are all accused of receiving money from Choi, an agent, in exchange for signing players to professional teams.
Choi, who is considered a key suspect in the scandal, was arrested and charged with embezzlement and fraud on March 14. The agent’s aunt, who allegedly colluded with Lim, fled overseas and is currently under indictment.

A prosecution official said
“We have confirmed the reality of ‘player management’ in which money is exchanged in exchange for joining a professional team in an infinite competition situation where only 3.7% of all soccer players join a professional team.” “We will do our best to maintain the prosecution so that the defendants who take player management lightly as a practice can be punished commensurate with their crimes.”
Meanwhile, the KFA, which recognized the situation of Choi Tae-wook, took immediate action. He is a member of the KFA’s Technical Study Group (TSG).
“We immediately excluded Choi from TSG work,”
Said a federation official, adding, “It remains to be seen whether the federation or the Korea Football Association will hold a punishment committee in the future after confirming with the police report.”
“If the prosecutor’s office notifies us of misconduct, we will decide whether to convene a fairness committee after looking at the indictment,” he said, adding, “We will then watch the outcome of the indictment and trial and decide on disciplinary action at the association level.”
