President Chung Mong-kyu, who failed to enter FIFA again, is pushed back in the Philippines and Malaysia
Chung Mong-gyu (61), president of the Korea Football Association,’s entry into the International Football Federation (FIFA) ended in failure again.
While the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) held its 33rd general meeting in Manama, Bahrain on the 1st (Korean time), President Chung failed in the FIFA Council member election, which was the only challenger. The FIFA Council, which replaced the existing Executive Committee, is a key body that deliberates and decides on major international football policies.
The failure itself was disappointing, but the voting results were even more disastrous. The gap between the winners and the winners was huge. Chairman Chung took the Lunar New Year holiday touring countries in Asia to ‘attack the vote’, but he only got 19 out of 45 valid votes. Afterwards, Du Zhaokai (China, 18 votes), who was running for a second term, was the only one who stayed in 6th place out of 7 candidates running for the election. Sheikh Ahmad Khalifa Al Thani (Qatar) received the most with 40 votes, while current FIFA Council member Kozo Kozo (Japan) received 39 votes. 스포츠토토 Yasser Almisehal (Saudi Arabia, 35 votes), Mariano V Araneta Jr. (Philippines, 34 votes), and Datuk Haji Hamiddin bin Haji Mohd Amin (Malaysia, 30 votes) were among the top five, serving a four-year term until 2027. was greeted with
After failing in the 2015 FIFA executive committee election, Chung was elected a member of the FIFA Council in May 2017 and worked for about two years. It was the second time that a domestic football figure entered the FIFA Executive Committee after Chung Mong-joon, Honorary President of the Football Association, who served as a FIFA Executive Committee member from 1994 to 2011. However, the period of activity was short. After his failed re-election in April 2019, his second term as vice-president of the AFC, which he had held together, also failed. This year, the diplomatic vacuum in Korean soccer is expected to continue due to another high defeat.
