Suwon Bluewings today confirmed that Seo Jungwon, has returned to the club as first team manager, initially until the end of the season.

The 48 year-old, who had been in charge of the Bluewings since 2013 before stepping down prior to the AFC Champions League clash with Jeonbuk Hyundai at the end of August, will once again lead the team he has an 11-year affiliation with.

Seo's resignation caused quite a stir leading up to the club's biggest match of the season, the AFC Champions League semi final tie with Jeonbuk which, lead by Lee Byungkeun, the club went on to record a 3-0 victory thanks to a brace from Dejan and a Han Euikwon header.

Despite reaching the ACL semi-final, Suwon's league form had left sections of the Bluewings' fanbase frustrated, prompting demonstrations and banners inside the stadium, ultimately resulting in Seo stepping down.

However, after a six week hiatus, Seo has been re-installed as manager and will take charge of the team once again for the FA Cup quarter final fixture with Jeju United on Wednesday 17th October at Suwon World Cup Stadium.

In a statement released by the club Seo said: "With some really important fixtures coming up from now until the end of the season, I decided to return so I can take responsibility."

After Suwon take on Jeju this Wednesday, the following Wednesday will see the Bluewings host Kashima Antlers in the AFC Champions League semi-final second leg. Seo's team will need to overturn a 3-2 aggregate score to advance to the club's first ACL final since 2002. Sandwiched in between is a crucial K League match with Pohang Steelers this Saturday.
