An arrest warrant has finally been issued for sacked Ansan Greeners manager Lim Jong-heon.
According to reports from the legal community, the Seoul Central District Prosecutors’ Office Criminal Division 9 (Deputy Chief Prosecutor Kim Hyun-ah) requested an arrest warrant for Lim on charges of embezzlement and fraud. Arrest warrants were also requested for Choi Moe, an agent who provided money to Lim, and Shin Moe, a former university coach, on charges of embezzlement and fraud.
Lim allegedly received 40 million won from Choi in exchange for selecting two South Korean players for the Navy team in Thailand in 2018 and 2019. He is also accused of taking 60 million won from one of the players under the guise of getting him into the pros.
The agent, Choi, allegedly paid Lim 67 million won to recruit players for the team and took 20 million won from one player with the promise of a professional career. Mr. Shin, a former college coach, is accused of receiving 60 million won in 2017 and 2018 in exchange for professional signings.온라인카지노
As the ties between professional coaches and agents and college coaches are scrutinized, there is the potential for the current case to expand. It is likely that prosecutors will reveal more about the corruption in the soccer world in the future.
