Lee Kang-in (22, photo), who made a splendid debut at Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) in France, is highly likely to change his position. It is a variable that will affect the Hangzhou Asian Games, which are about a month away from the opening.

France’s ‘Le Parisien’ reported on the 16th that Lee Kang-in is likely to play for PSG as a midfielder rather than a winger. It is in the same context that another French media, ‘L’Equipe’, reported the day before that PSG could promote a position change for Lee Kang-in, who had already been proven, instead of recruiting a new midfielder. Locals predict that from the Toulouse expedition on the 20th, midfielder Lee Kang-in, not an attacker, will play on the ground.

Originally, PSG coach Luis Enrique classified Lee Kang-in as a side resource, but it seems that he changed his mind due to excessive competition for the starting position.

This is because Kylian Mbappe, who returned after a conflict with the club, and Ousmane Dembele, who was brought from Barcelona, ​​Spain, sewed the left and right side wings. Considering Marco Asensio, who was brought in from Spain’s Real Madrid, there was a possibility that Lee Kang-in would be pushed to the fourth option.

The situation is different if Lee Kang-in plays as an attacking midfielder, another position he has experienced in the Spanish Primera Liga. Lee Kang-in is expected to take charge of the midfield along with Jair Emery and Ugarte. He may not be able to show his side creativity, but he can be the focal point of the attack with sensuous dribbling breakthroughs, penetrating passes, and accurate kicks. It is an ability not only that Lee Kang-in has shown numerous times since childhood, when he was called the future of Korean football, but also verified in the Spanish Primera Liga. It was also pointed out that PSG does not have a player capable of playmaking in the midfield. He is considered the right person to support Mbappe, who returned with a creative pass in midfield, and Hamus in the front. The possibility of competing with Kang-in Lee has been discussed, and rumors of a transfer to Saudi Arabia continue to emerge for Marco Verratti. What is interesting is that PSG’s position traffic control can help Korean football prepare for the Hangzhou Asian Games.토토사이트

Hwang Seon-hong, coach of the Asian Games soccer team, confessed in May that he was worried about where he would let Lee Kang-in play. At the time, coach Hwang stated the principle of “I will play well and play in my favorite position,” but, like PSG, he was concerned about excessive competition on the side of the national team. Looking at the final list for the Asian Games announced by the Korea Football Association last month, there are quite a few resources with positions overlapping with Lee Kang-in, including Jung Woo-young (Stuttgart), Um Won-sang (Ulsan), and Song Min-gyu (Jeonbuk).

However, if Lee Kang-in plays as an attacking midfielder, he can make the most of the rest of the side resources.

Director Hwang is making final adjustments over the timing of Lee Kang-in’s call-up. It is not easy to call for an A match in September, but the unexpected change in position has added strength to golden hopes in that unnecessary trial and error has been reduced.
