Contrary to concerns, it was reported that the injuries were not serious. He was also listed on the Asian Tour roster released by PSG, and appeared on the team’s official schedule, and was not in a state where he had to focus on rehabilitation due to injury.

The following is a Q&A with Lee Kang-in.

-You showed Korean fans the first time you trained in a PSG uniform.

So good. I am so happy to be able to play in Korea, and I think I have to show a good image if I play in the game tomorrow as well as the team. 

-Are you in good shape to run?

I have recovered a lot, and my body is fine. Of course, I don’t have a body that can run for 90 minutes. But my body is fine, and as I said, I don’t decide whether I will play or not, so I will do my best to make him play.

– It’s a hot topic because you’re close with Neymar. How did you become close?

Somehow, it seems like I’m close with all the players, not just me. From the first time I went, he treated me very well and accepted me well. It is also an honor for me to be able to play on the same team with such good players. I and my teammates will do our best so that we can show a better image.

-This is the last pre-season game in Korea. What are your resolutions for the opening of the league?

Little by little, it seems that the players are accepting the football that the coach wants and playing together. I think I will play better soccer as I go, and the play the coach wants will come out. 

Since this is the first season, it seems more important than the result is whether the players of a tolerable team get along well and play the football the coach wants. Since it is a league from next week, an important day has arrived, so I think I need to prepare well with the players to show a good performance and bring good results.

– Regarding the confrontation with Jeonbuk Hyun-jae.

As a Korean player, historically (Jeonbuk) is a very good team. I don’t think it’s an easy opponent, and I think it’s a good opponent. I will do my best, prepare well, and try to win.
