News: Daejeon Manager Resigns

After 17 months in charge Daejeon Citizen manager Choi Moon-Sik resigns with immediate effect.

Following the final day defeat to Daegu FC, the former Korea U23 coach stepped down as manager of the Purples after failing to guide the club back to the K League Classic.

Speaking after the aforementioned defeat to Daegu, Choi said: "the time at Daejeon was as on-going challenge; I'm disappointed that I couldn't apply my footballing philosophy.

"I haven't hit the pinnacles I plan to reach but today isn't the end, it was just a minor setback."

"Please continue to support this young Daejeon team that will only get better."

Cho Moon-Sik took charge at the end of May 2015 following the departure of the popular Cho Jin-Ho, now of Sangju, who lead Daejeon to the 2014 K League Challenge title.

Tasked with keeping Daejeon up, Choi failed to implement his philosophy quick enough and Daejeon were relegated without so much as whimper.

However, despite the poor end to last season, Choi was able to keep his job and even added some quality additions to the squad, such as Challenge top scorer Kim Dong-Chan, midfielder Kim Sun-Min and Romanian defender Jean Claude-Bozga, who all proved to be key players for the Purples.

Ultimately, however, it was poor away form which cost Citizen and indeed Choi his job with his position deemed untenable after a lacklustre 7th placed finish.

Daejeon's record under Choi Moon-Sik does not make pleasant reading with a win percentage of just 26 per cent in the league.

In the 2015 K League Classic classic campaign, of the 29 games played under Choi, Daejeon lost 21 times and won just three, drawing five.

Daejeon's first win under Choi was two months after his arrival; an away win against Gwangju on 18th August last year.

His first home win as Daejeon manager came on 18th October last year, a narrow win over Jeonnam Dragons.

This season, in the K League Challenge, Daejeon won 15, drew 10 and lost 15, with just five of those wins being on the road.
