Gimcheon Sangmu Professional Football Club announced on the 26th that it has appointed Jung Jung-yong as the second head coach of Gimcheon Sangmu.

“Being appointed in the middle of the season, I have a lot of responsibility. I will do my best as head coach to achieve the K League 2 championship and K League 1 promotion that all fans are looking forward to.”

Meanwhile, Gimcheon Sangmu coach Jung Jung-yong will take charge of the team from 1 June and will make his managerial debut on 4 June against Jeonnam Dragons.
