“It is the player’s individual opinion.”
He did not give a specific answer to Shin-soo Choo (41, SSG)’s recently controversial remarks. However, he drew a line saying that it is only a personal opinion as each player has a different opinion. It is read with the intention not to raise further controversy.
KT coach Lee Kang-cheol, who was in charge of the World Baseball Classic (WBC) Korean national team’s command tower, left for Arizona, the United States, via Incheon International Airport Terminal 2 on the 27th. Coach Lee chose to depart earlier than the KT team to check the campsite in advance. The KT team will depart for Arizona, USA on the 29th and join coach Lee.
Director Lee met with reporters before leaving the country and said, “As I am going to camp abroad for the first time in three years, I will try to arrive first and check the camp site. He also encouraged the players who went to the United States first, and I started quickly to adapt quickly,” he explained the background of his early departure.
At the same time, he carefully opened his mouth about Choo Shin-soo’s resolute remarks related to ‘Ahn Woo-jin’s withdrawal from the WBC national team’, which has recently been criticized by public opinion. Choo Shin-soo, who is currently spending the off-season in the United States, recently appeared on a local Korean radio broadcast to defend Ahn Woo-jin (24, Kiwoom), who was not able to board the national team after being disciplined for school violence in the past.
Choo Shin-soo said, “I definitely did the wrong thing,” but “It’s very unfortunate. 안전놀이터 He is the next most talented player after Park Chan-ho, but it seems that forgiveness is not easy in Korea. He said, “Seniors should step up for juniors who are treated unreasonably like Ahn Woo-jin, but no one steps forward.”
It was a statement of conviction for the future of Korean baseball, but rather the public opinion was infested with voices of criticism. It is because his remarks are inappropriate remarks that do not consider the victims as well as lack of awareness of the seriousness of school violence. In addition, Shin-soo Choo’s past national team activities are on the cutting board again, and the controversy is growing in waves.
Regarding this, the director said, “It is a personal opinion. Every player has their own thoughts. He dismissed it, saying, “I think it was for the development of professional baseball,” and “I don’t think it’s something I’m talking about here because it’s a personal opinion.”
