SONG GRATEFUL TO FOCUS ON FOOTBALL

Chong-Gug Song will be reporting to the army at the end of the season, where the rightback will learn to put his defensive skills to another purpose: homeland security. The international will undergo four weeks of military discipline, but has no problems with that. ‘Normally military service in South Korea lasts 26 months. I’m very grateful for only having to do one month, so that I can concentrate on my sports career.’

‘While all South Korean men must do compulsory national service, the players who reached the semifinal of the World Cup have been given a kind of official discharge,’ explained Song Friday. ‘Instead of the usual 26 months I and a number of my teammates only have to do four weeks of military training. I have mixed feelings about it. I feel a little conscious-stricken vis-à-vis those who do have to do the full 26 months. But I am also grateful to the whole Korean nation for the opportunity they have given me to focus fully on my football career here at Feyenoord. As a thankyou for the kindness they have done me I would like to do something for them. I hope to make them happy with my performances on the pitch.’
