Japanese rightists angry at Shimizu’s Kim Hyun-Sung signing

15 Aug

After Shimizu S-Pulse announced signing of Kim Hyun-Sung from FC Seoul on a 5 month loan deal, the club has reportedly been receiving phone calls criticizing the decision.




Some Japanese rightists have shown anger at the fact that Shimizu signed a player from the South Korean Olympics Team that defeated Japan to win the bronze medal at a time when there is a huge controversy between two nations regarding Park Jong-Woo’s Dokdo ceremony.

It could bring a lot of pressure on both Shimizu and Kim Hyun-Sung.
