Director Lee Kang-cheol at Choo Shin-soo’s remarks “I think he said it for the development of baseball”
“It’s a personal opinion. I think it was said for the development of baseball.”
Director Lee Kang-cheol (57) calmly expressed his opinion on the recently controversial remarks made by Choo Shin-soo (41, SSG Landers). He replied briefly and boldly, as if he was wary of further controversy.
KT Wiz coach Lee Kang-cheol, who is in charge of the Korean baseball team, leaves for Arizona, USA via Incheon International Airport Terminal 2 on the afternoon of the 27th. Coach Lee arrived in the U.S. two days earlier than the KT team and plans to join the team later. The KT team will depart for the United States on the 29th.
Coach Lee met with reporters before leaving the country and said, “I’m going to camp overseas for the first time in three years. I encourage the players who went to the United States first, and I’m trying to adapt myself.”
Recently, Choo Shin-soo, who is active as a veteran in the KBO league, has gathered a lot of attention by making a statement of his conviction. He expressed his views on the generation change of the national team and the non-selection of Ahn Woo-jin.
In response to a question about this, Director Lee said, “It’s a personal opinion, and I think each player has their own thoughts. I think he said it for the development of baseball.” 카지노사이트
On the 21st, Choo Shin-soo appeared on ‘DKNET’, a Korean radio broadcast in Dallas, Texas, USA, and said of An Woo-jin, “He obviously did something wrong,” but “I only talk about it as a third person by hearing and seeing it, but it’s very unfortunate. Going abroad, in a way, Park Chan-ho Next, he is a talented player… I am playing baseball in Korea, but there are so many things I don’t understand. Rather than covering (I), it seems that it is not easy for us to forgive in Korea.”
He continued, “I made (mistakes) when I was young. I repented of my mistakes and was punished with a suspension, but I am not able to participate in international competitions. I am a senior. If there is someone who has gone through such an unreasonable thing, the seniors should take their feet off.”
He said, “But no one steps forward. It’s too bad. I’m not an adult just because I played baseball first. If my juniors are going the wrong way and exercising in the wrong place, I have to raise my voice to change something properly and try to help, but I just watch.” He continued to speak his mind.
Director Lee said calmly, “I think it’s a personal opinion. I don’t think it’s something I’m going to say here.”
Coach Lee now focuses on his team KT Wiz and the WBC (World Baseball Classic) national team. Regarding the WBC tournament, he said, “I picked really good players. I want to play as many matches as possible with good players. I will do my best to feel the heat again at the World Cup. Our players will really show their best. I will prepare well with a great sense of responsibility so that I can play a good game. I ask for your support.”
