The recent sluggishness has been painful. Ahn Ik-soo (58) FC Seoul coach announced his intention to resign.

Seoul, which showed a good flow at the beginning of the season and seemed to have solved the goal-making ability that was frustrating last season to some extent, rose to second place after Ulsan Hyundai, which is currently overwhelmingly in first place. no win
Seoul became more difficult as Hwang Eui-jo, who wore a Seoul uniform on a short-term loan, returned to his original team, Nottingham Forest, with the start of July. Hwang Ui-jo seemed to have filled the vacancy by winning 7-2 in the match against Suwon FC held on July 12, but after that, the frustrating attack power was still the same, and it was showing the appearance of conceding a goal at the end of the second half due to lack of back-heartedness.
In this situation, when he failed to win the game against Daegu, Ahn announced his intention to resign.
At a press conference held after the game, coach Ahn said, “In an interview two years ago when I was appointed, I felt that the reason why I accepted the offer to coach Seoul was that a club called Seoul should be a team that should be responsible for Korean football. At that time, the team The ranking was 10th. There were difficulties with the relegation, but I had the heart to help Seoul even a little bit.”
Director Ahn said, “I have said this before, but I still have that feeling. I think a change is needed at this point in order for FC Seoul to develop further. I did my best to keep my promise and my promise with you, but the I couldn’t achieve my goal and had to drop out.”

Coach Ahn was looking for a solution, such as recruiting Beyond Johnson to supplement the difficult performance after Hwang Eui-jo’s departure, but the professional world was cold and he could not afford to wait amid fierce competition.
Coach Ahn, who took the Seoul baton during the 2021 season and saved the team from the relegation crisis, failed to escape the swamp of recent sluggishness and eventually gave up the baton.
Coach Ahn said, “There is no change in the fact that Seoul is a team that will continue to lead Korean football and spread healthy messages. I will cheer for you as a guardian from afar.” I would like to express my gratitude to the hardworking front desk staff, the Seoul supporters who followed the team everywhere regardless of inclement weather such as rain and wind, and heat waves, and to all those who are working behind the scenes, such as those who take care of the grass at the training ground.” .
Meanwhile, the Seoul club, which heard the news of manager Ahn Ik-soo’s resignation through an article, announced that it would review it, saying that it had not yet been agreed upon.
