Jeonbuk appeals ‘substitution mistake’ case to K League Baseball…

Professional soccer club Jeonbuk Hyundai has formally requested a “forfeit” from the Korean Football Association (KFA) in connection with a match against the Pohang Steelers in which the club was forced to face a record 12 opponents due to a substitution error.

The club announced on Monday that it has submitted a protest letter to the KFA for the match against Pohang in the 35th round of the K League 1, requesting a 0-3 forfeit for Pohang and post-match disciplinary action against Kim In-sung and Shin Kwang-hoon.

Jeonbuk cited the International Football Association’s (IFAB) rules on player substitution procedures and the KFA’s regulations, which state that if an “ineligible player” participates in a match, the player’s club is considered to have suffered a 0-3 forfeit.

The match in question, played the previous day at Jeonju World Cup Stadium, featured a skit with a record 12 Pohang players.

In the 23rd minute of the first half, Pohang fullback Kim Yong-hwan was injured and unable to continue playing, so Pohang tried to substitute fullback Shin Kwang-hoon.

However, Pohang made a mistake.

On the substitution sheet, they wrote “No. 7 Kim In-sung out, No. 17 Shin Kwang-hoon in”.

The substitution board held up by the assistant referee showed the number 7 of forward Kim In-sung, not Kim Yong-hwan’s number 3.

If the referees had executed the substitution clearly, it would have been an ‘internal Pohang mistake’.

However, the incident was complicated.

While Kim Yong-hwan was off the field, Shin Kwang-hoon entered the field, and Kim In-sung continued to play.

The situation lasted for six minutes, and the Jeonbuk bench protested to the referees.

Pohang had to make a late substitution in the 32nd minute when Kim Yong-hwan and Kim Seung-dae returned to the bench.

Even though Kim Yong-hwan was off the field due to injury, the scoreboard showed that Pohang faced Jeonbuk with 12 players for more than six minutes. Kim In-sung could have been an “ineligible player” on paper.

The match between Jeonbuk and Pohang ended in a 1-1 draw.

Jeonbuk said, “This is a case where the procedure for substituting players, which is the most basic and important principle in the rules and regulations of the game, is incorrect and cannot be taken lightly. We hope the KFA will make a wise decision.”

A Pohang official said, “It is true that it was our intention to remove Kim Yong-hwan and insert Shin Kwang-hoon, but there would have been no problem if the referees had correctly carried out the substitution task of removing Kim In-sung and inserting Shin Kwang-hoon as we ‘made a mistake’.” “We will wait for the professional federation’s judgment,” he said. 파워볼분석
