AG Lee Kang-in’s participation or not overseas is also a focus “If I win a gold medal like SON Kim Min-jae, I will be exempt”

Overseas media have expressed interest in whether or not “Golden Boy” Lee Kang-in, 22, will compete at the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games in a new Paris Saint-Germain jersey. A gold medal at the Asian Games could change the course of Lee’s soccer career.

“Coach Hwang Sun-hong has announced the roster for the Asian Games,” said Spanish media outlet Eldesmarque on Thursday (June 14), adding that Lee’s participation in the tournament is unconfirmed but positive. Lee, who played for Valencia and Mallorca (Spain), signed a five-year contract with PSG under Luis Enrique. He now has to decide whether he will participate in the Hangzhou Asian Games.”

On the same day, Hwang Sun-hong announced the final 22-man roster for the men’s soccer team to compete at the Hangzhou Asian Games. Baek Seung-ho, Park Jin-seop (Jeonbuk Hyundai) and Seol Young-woo (Ulsan Hyundai) were named as wildcards in the 24+ category, while Lee Kang-in was also included. However, Lee’s participation is not confirmed. The Asian Games are not organized by FIFA, so teams are not obligated to send their players. He would have to get permission from PSG to participate in the Asian Games.

Lee’s participation in the Asian Games is important. Not only will it determine his soccer career, but also the future of Korean soccer. South Korea will be looking to win their third consecutive title after winning in Incheon 2014 and Jakarta-Palembang 2018. At the 2018 Jakarta-Palembang, “Team Captain” Son Heung-min and Kim Min-jae (Napoli) received military service benefits. In the case of Kim Min-jae, his career has skyrocketed since resolving his military issue. After moving to the prestigious Fenerbahçe in the Turkic region, he donned the jersey of Napoli in the Italian Serie A last year. He exploded onto the scene and helped Napoli win the league title. This summer, he has been linked with a move to Bayern Munich. For Lee, receiving military benefits will take a huge burden off his shoulders.

“Military service is a crucial career break for footballers,” says Eldesmarcke, adding that Son Heung-min, captain of the South Korean national team, and Kim Min-jae, one of Europe’s most sought-after center backs, received military benefits after winning gold at the 2018 Olympics.

Before the Hangzhou Asian Games, Hwang Sun-hong and the Korean Football Association will negotiate with PSG for Lee Kang-jin’s participation. Although PSG hasn’t confirmed, the general consensus is that Lee will play. PSG has a five-year contract with Lee, so it would be beneficial for them to resolve the military service issue. PSG is also an unbeatable team in France. Even if they lose him for a while, they have such a deep roster that it won’t be a problem. The Spanish national team’s Carlos Soler and Marco Asensio can fill the void.

Coach Hwang Sun-hong said, “I’ve been communicating with Lee Kang-in. He has a strong will to participate in the tournament. His former club Mallorca had finished talking about him, but his move to PSG was fast-tracked. We are still coordinating with PSG. It will be coordinated,” he said.카지노

Meanwhile, Lee Kang-in joined French giants PSG this summer. He is the first Korean player to wear a PSG jersey. Last season, Lee was an ace for his former club Mallorca, scoring six goals and providing six assists in 36 league appearances. That was the second most goals on the team and the most assists on the team. This helped Mallorca finish ninth in the league despite a mediocre squad. The previous season, 2021-2022, Mallorca barely managed to stay in the top flight, finishing 16th in the league. Lee Kang-in’s performance has helped them soar.

There was also a lot of competition for his signature. Atletico Madrid and a number of English Premier League clubs had been after him since last winter’s transfer window, but the tide turned when PSG entered the fray. In the end, they were the winners. PSG paid a hefty transfer fee of €22 million for Lee, and they put their faith in him by signing him to a five-year contract.
