Will Lee Kang-in (PSG) be able to participate in the Asian Games?
It’s a fairly ambiguous situation.
Coach Hwang Seon-hong, the head coach of the Hangzhou Asian Games team, said at the Paju National Training Center (NFC) on the 14th, 메이저놀이터“PSG has no answer when they will let Lee Kang-in go. Lee Kang-in wants to join as soon as possible. It is frustrating because coordination is not working well. “He said.
Lee Kang-in, one of the best technicians not only in Korea but also in Asia, recently recovered from an injury and joined the team’s training.
French media outlet France Sports reported on the 12th (Korean time), ‘Lee Kang-in returns to PSG group training. Lee Kang-in’s return is good news for PSG. He said, “Lee Kang-in is starting the competition for the starting position.”
Lee Kang-in injured his left quadriceps muscle on the 22nd of last month. He officially announced that he will focus on his rehabilitation until September, when he has completed all of his rehabilitation.
Lee Kang-in is in a very important position at PSG. Local media said at the time, ‘Luis Enrique lost a key piece due to injury.’
There is a reason for this. ‘PSG’s recent team reorganization was not bad. PSG, where Lionel Messi, Neymar, Marco Verratti, etc. have all transferred, lacks the cracks that can tear apart the opponent’s defense except for Kylian Mbappe. In particular, support is lacking in the midfield. Lee Kang-in played as a winger, but there is a strong possibility that he will move to a central attacking midfielder.
In other words, Lee Kang-in’s return means the beginning of a major change in PSG’s position. It is also an important moment for the team. However, Lee Kang-in also needs to participate in the Asian Games. This is because he can receive military service benefits.
Local media also acknowledge this. ‘This is Lee Kang-in’s first year at PSG. However, because participation in the Asian Games involves military service benefits, it is beneficial not only to Lee Kang-in but also to PSG, which is trying to develop him into a key midfielder in the long term.’
It was reported that PSG will convey its position regarding Lee Kang-in’s participation in the Asian Games to the national team on the 13th. However, although there was information about Lee Kang-in’s condition, there was no clear answer on the timing of joining the Asian Games national team, the Korea Football Association explained.
Lee Kang-in may not be selected for the Asian Games if PSG refuses. You must have permission from your team. It is known that PSG is also having a lot of concerns.
