women’s volleyball, who had a relationship in Turkey, suggested the possibility of retirement. She is still Kim Yeon-kyung with her best skills, so her shock is great. If Kim Yeon-kyung’s retirement really becomes a reality, there are concerns about how to fill his vacancy.
An official from Heungkuk Life Insurance said on the 16th about the possibility of Kim Yeon-kyung’s retirement, “I don’t have much to say now. He has to continue a close dialogue with the players,” he said. The basic position of the club is that it wants to be with Kim Yeon-kyung after this season. However, if a player’s decision to retire is firm, it cannot be stopped. Moreover, Kim Yeon-kyung becomes a free agent (FA) at the end of this season.
Kim Yeon-kyung defeated Pepper Savings Bank with a set score of 3-0 at Samsan World Gymnasium in Incheon the day before, and hinted at the possibility of his retirement in an interview after the game. Regarding the recently raised ‘retirement rumor’, he said, “It seems to be a lie if I say that I have no thoughts at all.” Whether I retire or not, I will tell you during the season.” He said, “I’m thirty-six years old in Korean age, and I’ve been playing volleyball for a long time.” If I retire, it will be a decision based on that premise.”
As Kim Yeon-kyung said, he is still at the top of women’s volleyball. As of this season, he ranks first among domestic players with 530 points, and ranks first overall with an attack success rate of 46.02%. Kim Yeon-kyung led the team with her unique charisma, even in the midst of storms such as the hardship of former manager Kwon Soon-chan. The day before, it defeated Pepper Savings Bank and put the Gearco team in first place in the league.
Not just skill. Upon her return, Kim Yeon-kyung led the box office typhoon of Heungkuk Life Insurance. The average number of spectators at Heungkuk Life Insurance’s home in the first half was 4278, overwhelming the second place GS Caltex (average spectators 2605).
Whether it’s performance or box office success, Kim Yeon-kyung’s gap is bound to be huge. There is not much time for Korean volleyball players to rely on Kim Yeon-kyung. 슬롯사이트
Meanwhile, Marcello Avondanza (35, Italy), director of Turkiye Aviation, whom Kim Yeon-kyung met at Turkiye Fenerbahce, has emerged as a potential next manager candidate for Heungkuk Life Insurance. The Turkiye Volleyball Magazine reported on the day that “Director Abondanza has parted ways with Turkish Airlines and decided to lead Heungkuk Life Insurance in the 2023-2024 season.” Heungkuk Life Insurance acknowledged director Abondanza as a ‘potential candidate for the next manager’, but carefully stated that “the contract has not yet been finalized.”
