Other countries are also interested in whether Lee Kang-in will join the Asian Games team.
The Korean Asian Games national team is aiming to win three consecutive gold medals through the Hangzhou Games in September, following Incheon 2014 and Jakarta-Palembang 2018.메이저사이트
The Hangzhou Asian Games will be led by coach Hwang Seon-hong. We are burning our will to achieve the great goal of winning three consecutive championships.
The 23-member South Korea Asian Games team led by coach Hwang Seon-hong has been confirmed. Baek Seung-ho, Park Jin-seop, and Seol Young-woo joined as wild cards, and players who conquered the K-League, including Song Min-gyu and Eom Won-sang, were named.
In addition, Lee Kang-in of the European side Paris Saint-Germain, Jung Woo-young and Park Gyu-hyun, who play in Germany, also joined the list.
The biggest concern is whether and when Lee Kang-in will join.
Lee Kang-in is an essential resource for Hwang Seon-hong. He is like a savior who can power the attack through sharp passes and creative play.
Lee Kang-in moved to Paris Saint-Germain ahead of this season after showing great performance in Mallorca, and a tug-of-war is underway over whether to be selected for the Asian Games and whether to join.
It is known that PSG is offering favorable conditions for Lee Kang-in to join the Asian Games. It has been reported that even the Asian Cup in January next year is being discussed.
Director Hwang Seon-hong said, “I am in personal communication with Lee Kang-in. “He wants to join quickly,” he said. “It seems like there is a lack of coordination with PSG on the timing of his joining. “It’s a bit of a frustrating situation,” he expressed regret.
He continued, “I hope we can join before the group stage. However, PSG seems to be putting forward various conditions. Many cases are mentioned, including the Asian Cup in January. “I hope that the negotiations will proceed quickly,” he said, complaining of frustration.
Malaysia also covered the news of Lee Kang-in’s participation in the Asian Games with interest.
Malay Mail, a Malaysian media outlet, said, “Coach Hwang Sun-hong expressed frustration that PSG did not allow key midfielder Lee Kang-in to join just a few days before the Asian Games.”
He added, “Lee Kang-in had an even greater burden because Son Heung-min, who led Korea to the gold medal at the 2018 Asian Games, was not there this time.”
