Gwangju FC signs head coach Park Jin-sup for 2 more years

Korean football club Gwangju FC signed their head coach Park Jin-sup to a two-year extension on Wednesday, after the team earned a promotion to the top division for next year.

Gwangju won the second-division K League 2 in 2019, with a record of 21 wins, 10 draws and five losses. And they’ll be back in the top-flight K League 1 after three years in the lower division.

During the 2019 season, Gwangju set a K League 2 record for the longest undefeated streak at 19 matches and also set a club record with a six-match winning streak.

Park was named the K League 2 Coach of the Year earlier this month. He took over the club before the 2018 season and led Gwangju to a fifth-place finish.

Without disclosing the financial details, Gwangju said Park has proven his leadership and coaching acumen over his two seasons, and he’s the perfect man to continue to guide the club into the future.

In a statement released by the club, Park said, “I’d like to thank the team for their trust and support. I’ll try to build a strong squad next season and show the K League 1 what we’re made of.”
