Kangin Lee did not play against Cristiano Ronaldo’s Al Nasr due to a hamstring injury. As Lee Kang-in returned to training, he increased his chances of playing against Cerezo Osaka.
스포츠토토 said on the 27th (Korean time), “Paris Saint-Germain players trained ahead of the match against Cerezo Osaka. Lee Kang-in returned to training. Lee Kang-in trained separately from Lesnel Kimpembe, who had not fully recovered from an Achilles tendon injury. Neymar has recovered from an ankle injury and is fit to play.”
Lee Kang-in did not receive many opportunities to play in Valencia and moved to Mallorca. Lee Kang-in was in full bloom in Mallorca. In his first season, he appeared in 30 games, both starting and rotating. Last season, Lee Kang-in was Mallorca’s tactic itself. Manager Javier Aguirre used Lee Kang-in, and Mallorca’s offensive development began at Lee Kang-in’s feet. He performed very well throughout the season, scoring 6 goals and 6 assists in 36 league appearances.
Mallorca has struggled in the relegation zone for over a decade. But this season was different. Lee Kang-in’s kick and Vedat Muriki’s head combined to compete in the middle ranks. In the end, thanks to Lee Kang-in’s performance, Mallorca finished the season in 9th place, the best result since the 2012-13 season. Lee Kang-in’s performance led to a lot of interest in Europe.
Eventually, Lee Kang-in left Mallorca and joined PSG. PSG officially announced on the 9th (Korean time) on the club website, “We are happy to announce the news of Lee Kang-in’s joining. His contract period is until 2028.” And right after joining, Lee Kang-in said, “PSG is the best club in the world. I am happy to play with world-class players. I am already excited about a new challenge.”
Lee Kang-in quickly got his chance. Lee Kang-in started in a friendly match against Le Havre. From the very beginning of the game, he caught his attention with his flashy moves. However, he left the field shortly before the end of the first half with a hamstring sore. Fortunately, he did not suffer any major injuries and was with PSG on their Asian tour.
PSG previously held a friendly against Ronaldo’s Al Nasr. Lee Kang-in did not play in the game due to an injury. The match ended 0-0. No goals were scored, and when the excitement of the game declined, fans sought Lee Kang-in. Still, Lee Kang-in returned to training ahead of the match against Cerezo Osaka. Although he has been training separately to recover, his return to training is positive news.
PSG will play a friendly match against Sereo Oseka at Osaka Yanmar Stadium Nagai in Osaka, Japan at 7:20 pm on the 28th. With Lee Kang-in returning to training, attention is focusing on whether he will step on the pitch.
