TUR W: CONFIRMED! Kim is going to Shanghai – “I am no longer a teenager…”

Kim Yeon Koung will leave Istanbul and Fenerbahce this summer! Her next destination will be Shanghai, China!



This is definitely a sad day for all Fenerbahce fans, as their heroine decided to leave the club after 6 seasons spent in Istanbul. Kim Yeon-Koung will not extend her contract with Fenerbahce this time.

Instead she will move to China where she will join Shanghai!

“I am no longer a teenager and long seasons in Turkey do not suit me anymore. It was getting harder and harder to combine playing for Fenerbahce and for South Korea,” said Kim.

Kim will therefore move to China where a volleyball season is much shorter than in Europe. And she will try to help Shanghai to finally win the domestic title, as this club has not been the national champion since 2001.
