Breaking: Daejeon Citizen Sack Manager Ko Jongsoo


Breaking News: Daejeon Citizen Sack Manager Ko Jongsoo K League 2
According to reports Daejeon Citizen have parted company with first time manager Ko Jongsoo after a less than satisfactory start to the 2019 season. The Purples, who finished fourth under Ko last term, find themselves second bottom and with just three wins all season.

It was revealed early on the morning of Tuesday 21st May 2019 that Ko Jongsoo had been relieved of his duties as manager of Daejeon Citizen following a string of poor results.

The Purples got off to a solid start to the new campaign, winning their opening two matches away to Ansan Greeners and Jeonnam Dragons - the first time Citizen had won their first two matches since 2001, before a 0-0 draw at home to Seoul E-Land at the tail end of March.

However, since then Citizen have won just once and have lost seven times and as a result sit second bottom of K League 2 on 12 points.

An unnamed club representative told SPOTV News: "the club notified Coach Ko today that he is to be replaced. CEO Choi Yonggyu wanted him to step down voluntarily but was then told on the 20th May that he will be relieved of his duties.

"CEO Choi Yonggyu's decision won't come as a surprise to many inside the club, very few people were not aware of Coach Ko's imminent departure. There will be an official announcement later today [Tuesday] after Ko says his goodbyes to the players."

Coach Ko was appointed as manager of Daejeon Citizen prior to the 2018 season replacing caretaker manager Kim Jonghyun.

The former K League MVP, who spent a season at Purple Arena as a player, lead Citizen to fourth place and the Promotion Playoff Final last term with a win percentage of 43. However, after some notable departures and a lack of investment in the first team squad, Daejeon have struggled this year and Ko departs with an overall win percentage of 38.
