Jang Hyun-Kyu, who formerly played for Daejeon Citizen, Gwangju Sangmu (Army), and Pohang Steelers, was found dead in his room this morning. The 31 year old had been a veteran who played 179 games in the K-League.



However, he was involved in the 2011 South Korean match-fixing scandal and was expelled from professional football.

Further investigation is needed yet, but the police is viewing that he died of a heart attack.
