Cho Song-hwa, ‘unauthorized departure’, lost in the first trial for invalidation of contract termination
Jo Song-hwa, who was notified of the contract termination due to the controversy over unauthorized departure, filed a lawsuit against her former team, IBK Industrial Bank, but lost in the first trial.
On the 14th, the 14th Civil Settlement Division (Presiding Judge Seo Bo-min) of the Seoul Central District Court ruled against the plaintiff in the ‘claim suit for invalidation of contract termination, etc.’
Cho Song-hwa, who was the main setter of IBK Industrial Bank of Korea, caused controversy by leaving the team twice last year due to a feud with former manager Seo Nam-won. Accordingly, IBK Industrial Bank decided to terminate the player contract with Cho Song-hwa on December 13 last year.
In response, Cho Song-hwa’s side insisted, “It was not an unauthorized departure, but a break due to an injury,” and filed a lawsuit against the club for a provisional injunction and cancellation of the contract. 스포츠토토
However, the Civil Settlement Division 50 of the Seoul Central District Court (Senior Judge Song Gyeong-geun) dismissed Cho Song-hwa’s application to suspend the notice of contract termination against IBK Industrial Bank in January of this year.
On this day, the main lawsuit was also lost, and it was not easy for Cho Song-hwa to receive the remaining annual salary. In addition, he maintains his free player status by terminating his contract with IBK Industrial Bank, but it is difficult to find a new team.
