Head of PAOK, “Lee Jae-young and Dayoung are in Korea.”
“They are still in Korea.”
Thessaloniki PAOK Women’s Volleyball Team Office in Greece on the 23rd (Korea time). It was a reply that came back when I was about to ask PAOK chief George Foggiotis, who sat face to face, the first question about the future of sisters Lee Da-young and Jae-young.토토사이트
In Korea, there was already a report that the sisters had left for Greece on the morning of the 15th.
The interview was conducted in a way that PAOK staff translated the Greek answer of the head of Foggyautis to MyDaily reporters in English.
I asked again if the interpreter was misrepresented. The interpreter said, “The twins are not here. “The twins are not here. They can’t come without the visa,” the director said again.
▲ PAOK team leader, the background of the hard-earned entry is
MyDaily obtained the phone number of the head of Foggyautis through various channels. He called and texted several times, but he could not hear anything but a one-line message saying, “I will talk to you later.”
I arrived in Greece and texted him again. “I came to Thessaloniki. “I’m sorry to bother you so much, but please give me a minute.” There was no answer.
After waiting for two days in front of PAOK Stadium, he met with the head of Poggaotis.
“We didn’t officially announce the recruitment of twins on purpose,” he said, adding that the two players are still staying in Korea due to visa issues.
Although he signed the contract, he has yet to join the club because he has not been able to step on Greek soil, according to Foggaotis. This situation was behind his inability to easily respond to requests for interviews.
▲ Only reports of twins entering Greece appear in Korea.
Reports that Lee Da-young and her sisters entered Greece have been confirmed to have appeared only in Korea.
My Daily talked to reporter Stephanos Lemonidis, a Greek sports media that first reported the possibility of the two players joining PAOK in June.
“Do you know anything about whether twins enter Greece or not?” he said, “They are in Korea.”
“It was confirmed through PAOK director Takis Floros and Caan Athletics manager, the twin agency,” Lemonidis said.
Speculation that the two players are still in Korea has been further confirmed through an interview with Maya, dubbed Lee Da-young’s “best friend” and “another sister.”
He is a Spanish national team player whose real name is Milagros Collar, but is better known in Korea as Maya. Maya joined PAOK in the middle of this month.
He played for Hyundai Engineering & Construction’s volleyball team from 2018 to 2019. Lee Da-young, who was a setter at the time, showed off her perfect chemistry. Maya said she still keeps in touch with Lee Da-young.
“The twins have not arrived in Greece yet,” Maya told The My Daily on Monday.
He added, “I will ask Dayoung to bring me kimchi and dried squid when I get on a plane in Korea.” It was a double confirmation that the twins did not even get on the plane in Korea.
When I first met with MyDaily reporters who visited the club’s office, Panos Chorozoglu, the head of PAOK’s public relations team, asked, “Are you the Korean player?”
“I was waiting for my twins at the time,” he said in a text conversation with reporters on the 25th (the morning of the 26th Korean time), explaining, “I thought it would be one of the two players because a Korean came.”
The two players reportedly did not receive the visas needed to play for PAOK.
Currently, Koreans can stay in Greece without a visa for 90 days.
However, if you live in Greece and want to be an athlete, you must obtain a valid athletic visa under the Greek Immigration Act A.2.7.
The documents required to obtain this visa include valid passports, approval documents from the club, physical examination results, criminal history checks, health insurance certificates, and bank balance certificates. Depending on the situation, the consulate can request additional documents on its own, which is holding the ankles of Lee Da-young and Jae-young sisters.
The Greek consulate in Korea is said to have asked the two players to obtain a certificate from the Korea Volleyball Association, which says, “There is no problem playing in Greece after leaving Korea.”
However, there is still a possibility that the visa issue of the two players will be easily resolved without the approval of the coordination, as the additional documents required by the consulate are not legally essential documents for visa issuance.
