Choi Jun-yong from SK, Moon Seong-gon from KGC, Yang Hong-seok from kt, and Jung Hyo-geun from Korea Gas Corporation transferred to KCC, kt, LG, and KGC respectively through this free agent market.

These are the clubs that chose a lot of cash, from a minimum of 600 million won to a maximum of 1.1 billion won. It means there weren’t any reward players worth that much, and it’s also a solution to the financial pressures.

In fact, SK thought about cash and compensation players until the end. And decided to receive 1.1 billion won in cash, which was the first option.

KCC gave 1.1 billion won, 200% of Choi Jun-yong’s 550 million won in salary for the 2022-23 season, to SK. 600 million won, 200% of the 300 million won in the 23rd season, will be compensated to Korea Gas Corporation, and LG will compensate kt for 1 billion won, 200% of Yang Hong-seok’s 500 million won in the 2022-23 season.

Napoli coach Luciano Spalletti is expected to leave the team at the end of the season.

Spalletti said, “Napoli is the hero who led Italy to win the Italian Serie A title in 33 years. However, immediately after the victory, rumors of a breakup with coach Spalletti circulated. And as time goes by, the possibility of Spalletti leaving Napoli is growing.

In this situation, Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis made a statement that effectively ‘officialized’ the separation of Spalletti.

“It is a privilege to be in Naples, not an obligation. Now Napoli must open a new cycle,” De Laurentiis said through local media.

He continued: “I boldly promised in June of last year that we would bring Scutetto. And we succeeded. We kept that promise. Now Napoli is starting a new cycle. It’s time to be patient again. I am on a journey, and in the next few years I will be winning again.”

Local media interpreted this remark as an official parting with manager Spalletti. In addition, local media reported that after winning the Serie A championship, the relationship between manager Spalletti and president De Laurentiis had fallen out.

Spalletti, who is likely to leave Napoli, is linked with Tottenham in the English Premier League. If coach Spalletti leaves while the leading players Kim Min-jae and Victor Osimen are likely to part ways with Napoli, Napoli is virtually disbanded.
