Why Dortmund gets more money if they finish second in the Champions League

The UEFA Champions League championship trophy ‘Big Ear’.

The UEFA Champions League (UCL) is the largest prize money among sports competitions on the planet.

The UCL winning team will receive 20 million euros (about 29.8 billion won), and the runner-up team will also receive 15.5 million euros (about 23.2 billion won).

However, Dortmund (Germany), which advanced to the finals of this year’s competition, can actually earn more money if it finishes as runner-up. 메이저사이트

This is because of Jude Bellingham (21, England).

Bellingham played for Dortmund until last season and then moved to Real Madrid (Spain).

And Dortmund’s opponent in this year’s UCL final is Real Madrid.

According to the U.S. CBS broadcast, Real Madrid recruited Bellingham and decided to give Dortmund an additional $5.38 million (about 7.437 billion won) when they win the UCL in the 2023-2024 season. When Bellingham is named to the top 11 of the tournament, $2.1 million (approximately 3 billion won) is added to this. CBS explained, “If Dortmund wins, they will earn $21.5 million (about 29.72 billion won), but if they lose, they will earn $24.2 million (33.45 billion won).” 슬롯사이트

Of course, winning the UCL championship trophy ‘Big Year’ is an honor that cannot be exchanged for money.

However, if Dortmund loses, wouldn’t this money be of some consolation?

The final of this year’s competition between Dortmund and Real Madrid will be held at Wembley Stadium in England at 4 am on the 2nd. 토토사이트 순위

FC Seoul signs semi-professional contract with Osan High School ace Kang Joo-hyuk Second after Kang Seong-jin

FC Seoul signed a semi-professional contract with Osan High School’s ace Kang Joo-hyuk

Professional soccer K-League 1 FC Seoul announced on the 31st that it signed a semi-professional contract with Kang Joo-hyuk (18), the ace of the club’s U-18 team Osan High School. This signing is the second semi-professional contract in FC Seoul history after Kang Seong-jin (21).

Kang Joo-hyuk, born in 2006, is a side attack resource with an aggressive breakthrough ability using explosive speed and excellent scoring ability. Since his first year of high school, he has played as a key member of his affiliated team, Osan High School, and led the team to the top team in the high school league. 슬롯사이트

Kang Joo-hyuk, who has been attracting attention for his outstanding soccer skills since his days at Shinjeong Elementary School, was selected as one of the best elevens at the ’31st Cha Bum-geun Soccer Awards’ and was consistently called up to the national team at each level.

Kang Joo-hyuk said, “I can’t believe I get to play for FC Seoul, a club I’ve dreamed of since I was young. I will prepare well and show my fans a good performance. “I will help the team get three points in every game by scoring through my strengths, speed and good movement,” he said. 안전놀이터

Seoul coach Kim Ki-dong is investing young resources from Osan High School, including Lee Tae-seok, Baek Sang-hoon, Kang Seong-jin, Park Seong-hoon, Hwang Do-yoon, Son Seung-beom, and Lee Seung-jun, in the right places and developing players through friendly competition. The addition of another promising player, Kang Joo-hyuk, is expected to be a great addition to FC Seoul’s U-22 resources.

Meanwhile, Kang Joo-hyuk, who is a member of the Republic of Korea U-19 national soccer team, will participate in the Four Nations Friendly Tournament held in China in June along with FC Seoul’s seniors Ham Sun-woo, Bae Hyun-seo, and Min Ji-hoon, who are one year older. He plans to join the Seoul team after completing his schedule. 토토사이트 추천

‘Shock release’ Go Woo-seok, U-turn after 5 months in the US? “The possibility of going to LG seems low.”

The MLB Seoul Series practice game between Team Korea and the San Diego (SD) Padres was held at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the 17th. San Diego’s Go Woo-seok is waiting in the dugout.

The outlook for Go Woo-seok (26), who entered the Major League Baseball (MLB) early this year with big dreams, is bleak. Less than a month after changing teams, he was placed on the release waiting list, threatening to derail his big league challenge.

The Miami team announced on the 31st (Korean time), “We have designated Go Woo-seok as a DFA while recruiting pitcher Sean Anderson from the Texas Rangers.”

DFA is one of the procedures in MLB for changing or terminating a contract between a club and a player. It is like a kind of ultimatum in which the club urges the player to be demoted to the minor league or leave the team.

Players assigned for designation will be immediately removed from the 40-man roster and automatically placed on waivers. In fact, it is safe to say that Miami has been released, as it is equivalent to giving up the ownership rights and contract for Go Woo-seok.

Now Go Woo-seok is given a week of fate. If Go Woo-seok is recruited by another club within this period, he can continue his challenge to the MLB.

However, if there is no recruitment offer, he must leave Miami and look for another team directly, or remain in Miami as a minor affiliate.

If he remains in the minors, he can receive a remaining salary of $4.5 million from Miami until 2025, but if he chooses free agency, he cannot receive the remaining salary. The reason Go Woo-seok was ignored less than a month after settling in Miami was largely due to his failure to leave an impact. He gave up no runs in two games after moving to Miami, but was shaken by allowing 1 run in 1⅔ innings in his third appearance, and gave up 2 runs in 1 inning in his fifth appearance. He continued his scoreless streak in the last two games again, but was not an attractive player in the club’s eyes. In particular, the current Miami general manager is Peter Bendix (39), who is famous for achieving results with a limited budget during his time as general manager of the Tampa Bay Rays. General Manager Bendix is ​​trying to reduce the cost of running the Miami team as much as possible, and it can also be seen that he took measures to allocate nominations to reduce even Go Woo-seok’s not-so-high annual salary. Looking at it objectively, it is not very likely that Go Woo-seok will be traded to another team. Since he didn’t step foot on the MLB stage once this season, he didn’t even have a chance to be noticed by scouts.

In particular, according to his current contract, Go Woo-seok has the right to veto the minor league starting in 2025, but other clubs may find this clause burdensome.

If there is no trade news for a week, Go Woo-seok must decide whether to remain in the minors or leave the team as a free agent. Some are saying that this may be a U-turn to LG. LG also has no reason not to welcome Go Woo-seok’s return.

However, given that he has only been in the United States for five months, the player’s pride may not allow him to admit failure and return to the country.

MLB commentator Song Jae-woo said, “It doesn’t seem likely that Go Woo-seok will return to Korea right now. “Even if Go Woo-seok, who is already mentally shaken, goes to LG, he may suffer from trauma for a while,” he said. “The most realistic response is to wait for a trade and if that doesn’t work, look into other teams through an agent.”

He continued, “The current contract provisions, such as salary scale and minor veto rights, may actually become factors that make the transfer difficult, so it is also possible to predict a plan to modify some of the contract conditions by remaining in the minors.” He added, “I think he will try to continue the challenge.

He then advised, “The psychological blow felt by Go Woo-seok may be great, but it cannot be said that his big league dream has been completely dashed yet, so it is necessary to calmly monitor the situation and prepare for the next move.” 스포츠토토

Lee Jeong-hoo, Who Declined to Comment on the ‘Lee Jong-beom

Lee Jeong-hoo, Who Declined to Comment on the ‘Lee Jong-beom KIA Director’ Theory, Said, “This is my Father’s Life”

KIA looking for a new head coach… Lee Jong-beom mentioned as one of the ‘legendary’ candidates Lee Jeong-hoo,

“There’s always talk about director vacancies, but I haven’t received any direct contact.”

The professional baseball KIA Tigers, which terminated the contract with former coach Kim Jong-guk,

who was accused of receiving kickbacks from sponsors,

is in the midst of appointing a new coach ahead of the new season. 안전놀이터

KIA Director

While KIA is reviewing a wide range of candidates for the next head coach, Lee Jong-beom (53),

former coach of the LG Twins, is once again being considered a candidate for ‘Tigers manager’.

Former coach Lee, who was a legendary player representing the Tigers during his time as an active player,

has been mentioned as a candidate for manager for 10 years whenever the KIA manager position becomes vacant.

This year, he plans to go to the United States with his son Lee Jeong-hoo (25),

who joined the San Francisco Giants of the Major League Baseball (MLB), to receive leadership training.

Lee Jung-hoo, who is leaving for the United States to prepare for the new season,

met with reporters at Incheon International Airport on the 1st and said,

“You didn’t necessarily talk about (the KIA director theory).

Lee Jeong-hoo

“It is a sensitive issue, and I am not a player I can dare to talk about for the position of coach of a team,” he said.

Regarding the fact that he has always been criticized,

“In fact, there is a lot of talk every time the (KIA director position) becomes vacant,

but each time, there is no direct contact or anything like that.

So I am cautious about talking about it further.

“This is my father’s life, so I think he will take care of it,” he said bluntly.

According to Jeong-hoo Lee, it is still a valid fact that his father visits the United States for training.

What did you hear from him when he left for the United States? In response to the question, Lee Jeong-hoo said,

“He just told me to stay healthy and stay healthy.

He said, “My father has training plans planned anyway and will be living (in the same house in the U.S.),

so he didn’t say anything.”

Lee Jeong-hoo, who said that he ate beef with seaweed soup as his last ‘home meal’ before leaving home, said,

“My mother also said, He told me to just do well and come back.

My mother hasn’t been to my San Francisco home yet,

so I think she might come at least once to help me take care of things, she explained.
