PSG’s Wolkeul-Class Great Talent has Good Sense the Player Also Holds his Heart!
Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) wished Lee Kang-in and the Korean national soccer team good luck.
On the 13th, PSG posted a post supporting Lee Kang-in on their official account, saying, “We wish Lee Kang-in good luck as he prepares to participate in the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup in Qatar with the national team.”
To put it bluntly, big European clubs do not welcome international competitions held during the season. What if you are moving to a country relatively close to Europe? Most players representing distant countries in Asia or South America are fatigued due to long-term travel and play international matches without being able to adjust to jet lag.
Playing games with increased fatigue of players increases the likelihood of injury, and in fact, there are many such cases. This is why many great coaches and players in Europe are raising their voices that the number of games should be reduced to protect national team players. 지울프-토토
From PSG’s perspective, Lee Kang-in will be absent twice during the 2023-24 season alone. Fortunately, with Lee Kang-in returning from the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games with a gold medal around his neck, PSG was able to keep Lee Kang-in for a long time, but his continued selection to the national team is not welcome.
This is especially true because Lee Kang-in is an important player. After attending the Asian Games, Lee Kang-in quickly adapted to PSG and began to clearly receive coach Luis Enrique’s favor. His debut goal was scored immediately, and his status as a starting player was quickly rising. In particular, Lee Kang-in’s performance in the French Super Cup final, which was PSG’s first trophy this season, was the best.
Not being able to use such a player for five weeks is a loss from PSG’s perspective. Nevertheless, PSG supported Lee Kang-in. Lee Kang-in also responded and clicked the heart on his post.
What Lee Kang-in must do now is lead Korea to its first Asian Cup win in 64 years in order to repay the support of PSG and its fans. Expectations are even higher for Lee Kang-in, who has the energy of winning a gold medal in the Asian Games and winning the French Super Cup this season.
