It has been two weeks since South Korea national football team midfielder Son Jun-ho was detained in China. Officials from the Korea Football Association (KFA) are travelling to China next week to assess the situation.
According to a News1 report on 25 May, Son has been under investigation by public security since 12 May in connection with match-fixing at his club Shandong Taishan. On the 17th, the South Korean consul met with him for an interview, but was unable to comment on the case, and two weeks have passed without knowing the exact reason for his detention.먹튀검증
The KFA has also decided to take a proactive approach. KFA CEO Jeon Han-jin and his lawyer have applied for visas to China. “We will be travelling to China as early as next week,” said a KFA official, “We will go to the consulate and then move together to get the information we need and do what we can on the ground.”
However, the chances of meeting Son Jun-ho in person are reportedly not high. Son is also reportedly unable to contact his family.
“We don’t have any information this time,” said a KFA official, “Even the Chinese Football Association staff replied that there is nothing they can tell us because it is related to public security, not football.”
