Kim Yeon-Kyung, who revealed her intention to retire during her season, is thinking of the whole rather than her individual.
Heungkuk Life’s Kim Yeon-kyung said after losing the 5th round of the V-League Women’s Championship against Korea Expressway Corporation on the 6th, “Many fans came today as well. I know these people want me to run more. I can’t help but think My family and reporters all seem to want it. I’m thinking about it. I think about those points well and try to make a comprehensive decision,” she said. “It becomes a free agent status. She is also talking with Heungkuk Life Insurance. The possibilities are open. I am thinking positively. I will make a good decision,” she said.
Kim Yeon-kyung hinted at her retirement, saying, “I want to come down from the top” just a short while ago. The volleyball world was concerned about the news that the volleyball empress, who represents Korean sports beyond the V-League, was considering her retirement. Because she could be a big blow to league popularity.
It’s no wonder that her 1988 counterpart Kim Yeon-kyung is retiring. If she’s in her mid-30s, she’s old enough to stop working out. However, looking at Kim Yeon-kyung’s skills, the word “retirement” does not fit her.
This season, Kim Yeon-kyung scored 669 points in her regular league, ranking first in her domestic player’s score. Even in the championship match, she performed very well. In Games 1-5, she played very well, scoring a total of 120 points and averaging 24 points per game.
Even though she struggled alone, Kim Yeon-kyung was unable to stand on top. Heungkuk Life Insurance won the first and second games, but lost three games and finished runner-up. It became the first team in V-League history to fail to win the first two games.
Kim Yeon-kyung said, “I think it’s more because I couldn’t win,” and said that he had one more reason to continue his active life. As much as she failed to become the champion, she was euphemistically expressing her thoughts that she really wants to come down after reaching the top next season.
Fortunately, Kim Yeon-kyung becomes a free agent (FA) at the end of this season. Kim Yeon-kyung debuted in the 2005-2006 season and played a total of four seasons from the 2008-2009 season, then played in overseas leagues such as Japan, Turkey, and China. He returned in the 2020-2021 season and played an active role for one season, and earned FA status by playing a total of 6 seasons until this season.
If Kim Yeon-kyung wants to play in the V-League next season, he must sign a new contract through the FA market starting on the 9th. He could renew his contract with Heungkuk Life Insurance or transfer to another club.
Kim Yeon-kyung said, “The process of filling the 6th season was long. He filled six seasons at age 35. The fact that he became a FA is itself a miracle. It’s hard to explain what the feeling is. Maybe it’s because it’s right after I lost, so it’s calm. I think he should talk to the club,” he said.
Of course, Heungkuk Life Insurance wants to catch Kim Yeon-kyung. Coach Marcello Abondanza said, “We haven’t talked much, but I hope that Kim Yeon-kyung will stay and play. We have a lot of young players with potential on our team. Only with Kim Yeon-kyung can these players grow well. Kim Yeon-kyung is a key player, so I want to coach with young players.” He did not hide his willingness to accompany Kim Yeon-kyung.
The volleyball world is pleased with Kim Yeon-kyung’s remarks. In particular, the Korean Volleyball Federation or relay broadcasting companies have a lot of color. This is because Kim Yeon-kyung does not have to worry about various bad things that may occur if he retires.
This atmosphere of surroundings is also present in the background of Kim Yeon-kyung considering extending his active service instead of retiring.메이저놀이터 This is a scene where you can get a glimpse of the responsibility of Kim Yeon-kyung, who thinks of Korean volleyball.
