AG win – match-winning performances on the rise
Dembele, Asensio, and others compete for a starting spot
South Korea national soccer team midfielder Lee Kang-in is looking to solidify his place in the starting lineup for Paris Saint-Germain (PSG).
PSG will host Strasbourg at midnight ET on April 22 for the ninth round of the 2023-2024 French Ligue 1.
Currently third in the league, PSG will be looking to move into the top 10 against 11th-placed Strasbourg.
Lee Kang-in will be looking to break into the starting lineup.
Lee joined PSG from Mallorca (Spain) in the summer transfer window.
At the start of the season, he looked like he was on his way to a starting spot, but injuries and the issue of
missing the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games prevented him from fully establishing himself.
Luckily, Lee was granted military service for winning the Asian Games, and he was on the rise, scoring
three goals in two consecutive A-League matches in October.
However, before his return to the club, transfer rumors surfaced. On September 19, Spanish outlet
Football España reported that Real Sociedad were interested in signing Lee.
“PSG signed Lee just a few months ago,” the outlet explained, “but it is possible that the Sociedad could
be looking for a replacement for Takefusa Kubo (Japan), who has been linked with a return to Real Madrid (Real).”
The implication is that if Lee doesn’t become a regular at PSG, he could return to La Liga with Sociedad.
Just as the Spanish media has been following Lee’s progress, there has been a lot of interest from the
French side. The French outlet Foot Mercato, 카지노사이트랭크 which broke the news of Lee’s good
performances for the South Korean national team, called it an “impressive comeback” and expected him to perform well.
Lee’s main competitors for the position are Ousmane Dembele (France) and Marco Asensio (Spain).
Dembele’s strengths are his quickness and two-footedness. He’s a different type of player than Lee, so expect him to rotate.
Is a different type of player than Lee Kang-in, so he’s likely to be rotated. Asensio, who played for Real
until last season, moved to PSG with Lee this season. He can play as an attacking midfielder or on the flanks and is a playmaker, which is similar to Lee’s style.
“I might play a lot of games, I might not play a lot of games,” Lee said, “I don’t know what’s going to
happen, so I’ll always try to do my best and be in the best shape to give my best performance,” he added,
predicting fierce competition for the starting spot. 섯다
