North Korean football boss sentenced to hard labour


The North Korean football boss is being forced to work on a building site following the nation’s performance at the 2010 World Cup.

Crazed dictator Kim Jong-Il, who was famously lampooned in the film Team America (above), is thought to be disgusted with Kim Jong-Hun and his players after North Korea lost all three games in South Africa.

Jong-Hun and his 23-man squad of players plus backroom staff were ordered to attend the World Cup inquest at the People’s Palace of Culture in the capital, Pyongyang, according to The Sun.

It’s understood they faced a six-hour inquisition where they were shamed in front of 400 government officials and a host of students and journalists. They were even accused of betraying Kim Jong-Un – one of nutty dictator’s sons.

However, it could have been worse for the coach.

A South Korean intelligence source, quoted in the Chosun Ilbo newspaper said: “In the past, North Korean athletes and coaches who performed badly were sent to prison camps.

“Considering the high hopes North Koreans had for the World Cup, the regime could have done worse things to the team than just reprimand them for their ideological shortcomings.”

The footballing minnows were making their first appearance at the finals since 1966 and were in the competition’s ‘group of death’ alongside tournament favourites Brazil and the well fancied Ivory Coast and Portugal.

After losing 2-1 to Brazil, the North Koreans were thumped 7-0 by Portugal before suffering a 3-0 defeat at the hands of the Ivory Coast.
