Former Ansan FC representative Lee Jong-gul also received a ‘61.5 million won’ Benz… Prosecution warrant reclaimed (comprehensive)
Additional investigation revealed that Lee Jong-geol, former representative of Ansan Greeners FC (61), received a Mercedes-Benz worth 61.5 million won in return for joining the player. In addition, it was also caught that he received 9 million 메이저사이트 won in exchange for the appointment of a director. As a result, the amount of ‘back money’ has increased significantly to 100 million won.
The 9th Criminal Division of the Seoul Central District Prosecutor’s Office (Chief Prosecutor Kim Hyun-ah) announced on the 18th that it had re-applied for an arrest warrant for former CEO Lee on additional charges of breach of trust.
Lee is accused of receiving a total of 27 million won, including 10 million won in cash and a luxury watch worth 17 million won, from player broker Mr. Choi in exchange for the signing of two players from November 2022 to January 2023.
Prosecutors also found that former CEO Lee received 9 million won in exchange for appointing Lim Jong-heon, former acting manager of Ansan Greeners FC, as a supplementary investigation.
Former CEO Lee was also accused of receiving a foreign vehicle worth 61.5 million won from the father of the player in exchange for the joining of the two players.
Prosecutors previously requested an arrest warrant for former CEO Lee on the 1st, but the court dismissed it, saying, “A significant portion of objective evidence has been secured, and the risk of further destruction of evidence is low.”
On this day, an official from the prosecution said, “The charges of receiving money in various ways have been added regardless of people, including players, club officials, and agents.”
“We need to sound an alarm about structural corruption related to joining professional football,” he said. “We will investigate strictly and thoroughly.”
