Lee Kang-in threw a ‘bad manners tackle’ and then punched… locals also criticized
Spain’s Real Madrid Federico Valverde (25) seemed to have lost his temper. Golden Boy Lee Kang-in (22, Mallorca) once again made an ill-mannered tackle.
Spain’s El Observador introduced on the 6th (Korean time) that ” Valverde felt anger and frustration.” On this day, Real lost 0-1 away from Mallorca. It was a truly shocking result. Real lost to Mallorca for the first time in three years and four months since October 2019.
Valverde’s performance on this day was not good. He fired 4 shots, but 3 missed the goal. The pass success rate was 89%. He made 2 aerial contests and 2 tackles, but his contribution in the offense was low. Whoscored.com, a European soccer statistics site, also gave Valverde a low rating of 6.16.
Was it because the game was not finished? On this day, Valverde played quite rough. In particular, he made several violent tackles to Lee Kang-in. At the start of the game, Lee Kang-in performed a storm dribble, and Valverde pushed hard from behind and knocked him down. In the 19th minute of the second half, it was rougher. Valverde made a back tackle behind Lee Kang-in. Lee Kang-in was also very sick. Eventually, the referee issued a yellow card. 안전놀이터
In response, Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti called Valverde to the bench. When Valverde showed excitement, it was judged that he could not play properly. In fact, after sitting on the bench, Valverde ‘banged’ the chair with his fist in resentment.
Lee Kang-in and Valverde are also famous for their bad performances at the 2022 Qatar World Cup. Even at that time, Valverde played bad manners. In the Uruguay-Korea match in the first game of the group stage, Valverde slid a sliding tackle at Lee Kang-in who was dribbling, then threw an uppercut ceremony as a provocation. However, it was Lee Kang-in who had the last laugh. Korea dramatically advanced to the World Cup round of 16, but Valverde’s Uruguay was eliminated.
Unfortunately, after the World Cup, Valverde’s sluggishness continues. He has not scored a single goal in his last 10 matches. Most of the ratings on Whoscored.com also stayed in the 6-point range. The media also criticized, ” Valverde is still not in the best condition after the World Cup.”
