Yeah but if the club truly knew nothing about it then they should have sued him but as yet they havent done anything...

Wait, what?!

Hurry up with that then. There is not way Seoul is beating Motors in a fair game.
There are two routes to success in football. One is being good. The other is being lucky. You need both to win a championship. But you need only one to win a match.

If the ACL throw out the (almost certain) finalists at this stage over a 3-year-old domestic issue that's been dealt with already and had nothing whatsoever to do with continental competition, they'll be an absolute laughing stock. My guess is they'll kick the can down the road until after the final, and then if we win the whole thing they'll drop it or give a slap on the wrist as they won't want to be without the champions next season; if we're runners-up they might decide to give a 1-year ban to send out a message.
This season I will be mostly supporting :
KLClassic - Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors / KLChallenge & National League - Anyone & Everyone / K3 League - Jeonju Citizen

I'm not so sure about that. It all depends what forces are rallied against them. Despite spending lots of money, the Chinese have been humiliated this year (and long had problems with corruption in football themselves) and the West Asians have been humiliated for years (and long had problems with corruption in football themselves) so it wouldn't surprise me to see a few wanting to see Korea shown up in public on the grounds of "getting tough". There are plenty of people in Asian football who would love to see the Koreans taken down a notch or two. The OFC booted New Zealand out of their Olympic qualifying tournament even though they qualified for the final and ended up sending Fiji instead. Suffice to say that the Kiwis don't have many friends in the OFC, not the least reason being they keep winning everything.

The AFC risks having a finalist or even a tournament winner with a big question mark over them. That might be enough to get a few sponsors nervous. Companies like Nike have been burnt by this sort of thing in football in the past.

On the other hand, they may do nothing.
