The IBK IBK uprising, which started with Jo Song-hwa, the captain of IBK Industrial Bank of Korea, is heading towards a truth workshop.
Kim Sani, who appeared as an acting coach in the 2nd round of the women’s round of the ‘Dodram 2021-22 V League’ held at Samsam Gymnasium in Incheon on the 23rd, conducted an interview before the match.
On this day, acting coach Kim Sa-ni explained the background of Jo Song-hwa’s departure from the team, saying, “After the second round of KGC Ginseng Construction, there was a friction between the manager and Jo Song-hwa.”
As for the reason for his departure from the team, he said, “Director Seo got angry at me in the presence of all the players and staff and told me to take all responsibility and leave. There were abusive remarks and unspeakable abusive language.”
Veteran center Kim Su-ji also agreed with acting coach Kim’s argument. In an interview after the match, Kim Su-ji said, “It was a very uncomfortable place for us to feel. I want to say that part is true. There was a situation like that, rather than taking the side of (Acting Director Kim).”
However, the objection of former manager Seo Nam-won followed. In an interview with Yonhap News and other media outlets, he said, “It’s unfair to be branded as a manager who has the wrong training method and can’t even manage players.”
He also said, “I never told coach Kim Sani to leave. I want to ask what was that level of abusive language.”
At the same time, coach Seo asked Song-hwa Jo to talk to the coach at the time when he didn’t answer even when he talked to him, and when there was no answer, he said, “I don’t answer the coach’s words, nor do I answer the coach’s words. Well, there are all kinds of dogs like this,” he insisted was the worst.
