A player and a coach from Seoul have been referred to the Korean Professional Football Association’s punishment committee in connection with the bench-clearing incident that took place in the final “Super Match” of the 2023 season between professional soccer’s K League 1 club FC Seoul and Suwon Samsung.
According to Yonhap News Agency on Monday, the KFA‘s Match Evaluation Committee and the Korea Football Association’s Referee Evaluation Subcommittee discussed the 37th round of the K League 1 Final B match between Seoul and Suwon and decided to refer Seoul’s physical coach Jung Hoon-ki and Go Yo-han to the penalty committee.
The final match of the season between ‘supermatch rivals’ Seoul and Suwon at the Seoul World Cup Stadium on Sept. 25 was a fiercely contested affair with more than 36,000 spectators in attendance, but it was marred by nerves as players from both teams tangled in the final minutes of the match.
Players from both teams rushed to the ground after Seoul’s Ki Sung-yong pushed Suwon’s Jeon Jin-woo, who had fouled him, and in the ensuing scuffle, coach Jung Hoon-ki punched Suwon’s Ko Seung-bum in the face.
At the time, Ki Sung-yueng was warned for pushing Jeon Jin-woo, and a red card was shown to Jung for the subsequent collision.
In addition, video footage of Go Yo-han pulling Go Seung-bum’s hair and Seoul’s Palocevic pushing Suwon’s Lee Sang-min near the neck caused controversy.
The KFA’s Evaluation Committee has issued a further disciplinary review opinion on Chung, who was already ejected from the match.
The KFA’s Referee Evaluation Subcommittee determined that Goh, who did not take any action on the field, should be disciplined after the fact.
The KFA’s penalty committee will meet later this week to finalize their punishment. 슬롯게이밍
