The Korean Football Association made a ridiculous move by selecting and then removing a player from the Asian Games team after he was suspended for drunk driving,
leaving the Asian Games squad one player shy of 21 for the competition.
Hwang Sun-hong, the head coach of the Asian Games team, announced the final 22-man roster on Thursday, which included defender Lee Sang-min.
However, Lee Sang-min had been caught driving under the influence of alcohol while playing for his team three years ago and was fined 5 million won.
Fans were sure to criticize the decision.
It turns out that the Korean Football Association hadn’t even checked the selection rules.
The rules state that players who are fined more than 5 million won cannot be selected for the national team for three years, 먹튀검증 but Lee Sang-min was selected and then removed from the roster.
The KFA later apologized, but the team was still one player short of 21 for the Asian Games.
