As we all know, many Korean projects like to copy other people’s homework, and even like to take other people’s traditions as their own. We in China have a deep understanding of this. Of course, there is nothing wrong with copying homework. It is understandable to learn from other people’s advanced aspects. The whole world is doing this, but it is not good for South Korea to copy the good and the bad and want to keep them for themselves. South Korean football is at the top level in Asia, but this time their K League copied some policies from other leagues, and they also copied the wrong people and copied some bad policies from the Super League.
This season, the K League has started, and three rounds of competitions have been held. One policy has just been implemented this season, but it has been opposed by many players and clubs. K League started to implement U22 policy this season. Yes, you read it correctly. It is the controversial U23 policy just cancelled by the Super League. The U22 policy of K League is an upgraded version of the Super League, with stricter requirements and more complicated implementation. Many clubs are miserable for this.
The specific U22 policy is that each team must have one U22 player in the first round of each game, and there must be at least two U22 players in the 18-person roster of each game. If there are no replaceable U22 players on the bench, then the substitution quota of this team will be reduced from 5 to 3. If you want to use all 5 substitution quotas, you need to have two U22 starters, or a starter and a substitute. In short, this rule has brought a lot of troubles to the team coach, and the arrangement of troops, the selection of the game list and the adjustment of substitution are all restricted, and a game has changed from a tactical problem to a mathematical calculation problem.
Seung-woo Lee, a South Korean international, plays for FC in Shui Yuan. He bluntly said that no country in the world has such wonderful rules. While Seung-woo Lee criticized the unreasonable rules of K League, I’m afraid the Football Association and the Chinese Super League will also feel blushing when they hear it, because we have been implementing U23 League for many years, and we have cancelled U23 rules after hearing the opposition from outside this season. I didn’t expect our old and wrong rules to be copied by the Korean K League. It’s really ironic.
Some of these policies violate the objective development law of football. Football is also a scientific sport, and some imposed policies will hinder the normal development. Just like U22 and U23 policies, some players who have no strength to play the game can rely on the policy to play the ball, which is in itself a kind of encouragement, and other good players will not play because they are one or two years older, which is an unreasonable rule in itself. The Super League has cancelled such a rule, which has also been proved to be wrong. I didn’t expect it to be picked up by the Korean League.
