Korean Businessman to Invest in Croatian Football Club?

nkluckoKorean businessman Lee Kyung Won wants to become the major shareholder in Croatian second division football club NK Lučko…

Later today the Zagreb club’s board will meet, and as daily 24sata reports, the Korean investor is looking to become the major owner of the club that finished in 9th spot in last season’s Croatian 2nd division.

“Negotiations with the Koreans have been ongoing for a number of months, that is all I can say at the moment,” the club’s president Vinko Marinović was quoted as saying.

“He plays football himself, he loves it. When he comes (to Croatia) he watches both 1st and 2nd division games, he loves it all,” leading sports lawyer Nikola Badovinac said.

Kyung Won is expected to be named president after Tuesday’s board meeting.

Last month an American consortium become the major owners of Pula-based first division club NK Istra 1961.
