Breaking: Pohang Steelers Sack Manager Choi Soonho

Pohang Steelers Sack Manager Choi Soon-ho K League 1
Pohang Steelers have sacked manager Choi Soonho after a sluggish start to the 2019 season. The Steelers, who lost 3-0 away to Daegu FC at the weekend, have just one win in their last six and part company with Choi after three consecutive defeats.


Choi Soonho has been relieved of his duties as first team manager of Pohang Steelers following Saturday's 3-0 reverse to Daegu FC. The result, the Steelers' third on the trot, leaves the club third bottom of K League 1, just three points above Jeju United who prop up the table.

Choi took over at the Steelyard in September 2016 following the departure of Choi Jincheul and went on to fend of the danger of relegation. In 2017 Pohang finished in seventh but out side the top half of the split once again before last year's top four finish. Had rivals Ulsan Hyundai have won the FA Cup, Pohang would have been in the AFC Champions League this season.

Upon his departure, Choi revealed that he had no regrets: "I was really happy (at Pohang). I've not got a bad word to say my players, we got along so well. We actually did as well as our budget allowed, and most of all, we had fun with our players."

From 80 matches in charge, Choi won 31, drew 14 and lost 35 - a win percentage of just under 39%.
