Incheon Utd resigns coach Cho Sung-hwan, blames poor performance on poor results

After four years in charge of professional soccer’s K League 1 Incheon United, Cho Sung-hwan has said goodbye.

According to Incheon United on Friday, Cho will step down after the team’s match against Gimcheon Sangmu Professional Football Club at the Incheon Football Stadium.

Cho reportedly decided to step down after concluding that the team needed a change in atmosphere following the club’s poor 토토사이트 순위 performance.

Cho took the reins of Incheon United in 2020 and has been at the helm for four years. In his first year in charge, the team won the K League 1 Final B final and finished 11th in dramatic fashion, preventing the team from being relegated to the second division. Since then, Cho has led the club to a fourth-place finish in the K League 1 in 2022 and a first-ever Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Champions League (ACL) qualification.

This year, however, Incheon United has struggled for form, sitting in ninth place with four wins, eight draws, and eight losses (20 points) through 20 rounds this season. Recently, the team has lost three straight games and gone seven games without a win (three draws and four losses).

A club official said, “Coach Cho was feeling a lot of pressure on the performance. He chose to mutually terminate his contract with the team after the match against Gimcheon Commerce on the same day.” “It seems that he decided that it would be beneficial for the club to have another coach,” said a club official.

Cho became the fourth K League 1 manager to resign this year, following Dan Petrescu (Jeonbuk), Choi Won-kwon (Daegu), and Lee Min-sung (Daejeon).
