Kim Yeon-kyung (Heungkuk Life Insurance) wears a pink uniform again.
Professional volleyball Heungkuk Life Insurance issued a press release on the 16th, saying, “Kim Yeon-kyung and Heungkuk Life Insurance continue to accompany. It is a one-year contract with a total remuneration of 775 million won (annual salary of 475 million won, an option of 300 million won).”
His first free agent (FA) opportunity in 18 years of his debut. Kim Yeon-kyung said, “I want a team that can win,” and looked for her destination with the possibility of her transfer in mind. However, in the end, the choice was Heungkuk Life Insurance.
As a result, Kim Yeon-kyung is more likely to remain as Heungkuk Life’s ‘one club man’ in Korea. Starting with her debut season in 2005, Kim Yeon-kyung played for Heungkuk Life Insurance except for overseas league activities such as Turkey and China.
The presence of director Marcello Abondanza played a big role. Kim Yeon-kyung said, “I had a lot of thoughts because it was FA for the first time in my life.
Coach Abondanza, who came to the end of last season, collaborated with the European champions for four seasons during the Turkiye period, when Kim Yeon-kyung was in his prime. When Abondanza took office, Kim Yeon-kyung said, “It’s a challenge for Korean volleyball,” and said, “I’m really looking forward to it.”스포츠토토
Through the club, coach Abondanza said, “As a volleyball player, I think that Kim Yeon-kyung is a player who has a good influence on the team in many ways, not only technically but also mentally. He said, “I am happy to be able to work with such a player in the future.”
As Kim Yeon-kyung has mentioned “the club’s will and plan” by citing “the possibility of an integrated championship” as the condition for the next destination, Heungkuk Life Insurance is likely to make additional reinforcements in the future. Heungkuk Life Insurance ranked first in the regular league last season, but lost to Korea Expressway Corporation in the championship match and stayed in second place.
With Kim “Big Fish” Yeon-kyung finalizing the contract, transfers to the V-League Women’s Division are expected to become active in earnest. Currently, the defending champion Korea Expressway Corporation, which has a large number of key players on free contracts, is likely to drain or remain. On the other hand, the destination of Park Jung-ah of the same team is still in the fog.
