Winless Incheon United names a new head coachIncheon United FC, the bottom club in the top division Korean football league, named a new head coach Friday.
The K League 1 club said former Jeju United coach Jo Sung-hwan will take the helm of the team until the 2021 season. But it did not disclose financial terms of the contract.
"We've sought for an experienced coach who can understand our situation and help us overcome it," Incheon United said in a statement. "We decided to trust Jo with his longstanding career as a player and coach."
Incheon is dead last in the 12-team competition with five draws and nine losses. It remains the only winless club in the league, as of Sunday 7 p.m.
It scored five points as of Friday, eight points behind the 11th-placed Seoul FC.
The worst K League 1 club at the end of the 27-match season will be automatically relegated to the second-tier K League 2 for 2021.
"I will do my best to meet the fans' expectations and support," the new coach was quoted as saying.
