“Words are like water in the clear” Kim Ki-dong speaks bitterly about Lingard British media “received a harsh reprimand”

Kim Ki-dong , who only appeared as a substitute in 3 consecutive games including the game against Jeju, said, “Soccer players are not the ones who jump around.”

As professional soccer K-League 1 FC Seoul coach Kim Ki-dong criticized 'special foreign striker' Jesse Lingard, the British media also paid attention to this.

The British media ‘Daily Mail’ reported on the 17th (local time), “Lingard received a harsh reprimand from the Seoul coach after only three games in the K-League.”

Seoul won 2-0 thanks to back-to-back goals from Ilyuchenko and Ki Sung-yueng in the third round home game of the 'Hana Bank K League 1 2024' against Jeju United held at Seoul World Cup Stadium on the 16th.

It was Seoul's first win of the 2024 season and coach Kim Ki-dong's first win since taking office in Seoul.

However, Director Kim did not just smile. He publicly expressed his dissatisfaction by saying that they tried to remove Lingard, who was brought in as a substitute in the 12th minute of the second half.

Lingard, a soccer star from Manchester United in the English Professional Football Premier League (EPL), has appeared as a substitute in the last two games after wearing the Seoul uniform this season.

He played as a substitute for Jeju Jeondo. There was flash as expected from a player who played in a high-level league, but he lacked the fighting spirit to participate in defense. Coach Kim pointed out, “If a player who has only played a few minutes plays with excitement and cannot play more than players who played 90 minutes, then I don’t think he is a soccer player.” He continued, “We meet once a day to talk. He pointed out that Lingard's attitude was wrong, saying, "Words are a waste of money, but (the performance of those words) should not be reflected in action." Accordingly, the ‘Daily Mail’ reported, “Coach Kim raised questions about Lingard’s performance and aspirations despite the win against Jeju.” Meanwhile, Lingard plans to take time to reorganize. According to Seoul officials, foreign players, including Lingard and Palosevic, went on vacation until next week during the international break in March.
