Lee Kang-in ‘injury’ Korean soccer ’emergency’

Lee Kang-in (22, photo) of Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), a French professional soccer player, injured his thigh again. Both the Korean national soccer team coach Jurgen Klinsmann and Hwang Seon-hong, the Hangzhou Asian Games coach, who were fighting over the call-up of Lee Kang-in, were in a difficult situation.

PSG said on the club website on the night of the 22nd, “Lee Kang-in injured his left quadriceps muscle. He will focus on treatment until at least the end of the A-match break,” he said. The quadriceps muscle is a large muscle on the front of his thigh. PSG did not explain the specific circumstances, such as when Lee Kang-in injured the area. He injured the hamstring behind his right thigh shortly after transferring to PSG last month and went through rehabilitation and played two games in the league, but this time he had a problem with the opposite thigh.온라인바카라

Both the national team and the Asian Games team had red lights on. Head coach Hwang requested concessions from the national team regarding Lee Kang-in’s selection from last March when Klinsman took over. However, coach Klinsman, who has not yet won his first win with 2 draws and 2 losses after taking the baton, officially announced on the 20th that he would send Lee Kang-in to the Asian Games after playing in an A match in September. However, for Klinsmann, who is thirsty for victory, the departure of Lee Kang-in, who serves as a lubricant for the development of the attack, is painful. Klinsmann will play against Wales in England on the 8th of next month and against Saudi Arabia on the 13th.

Head coach Hwang, who is aiming for a gold medal in the Asian Games, deepened his concerns. As PSG announced, if Lee Kang-in has to focus only on treatment until the 15th of next month, the period of his A match, he will join the national team right before the tournament with no sense of practice. There is no guarantee that the injury will be fully healed by then. If he overreacts and the injury gets worse, it will be hard to avoid big criticism. Hwang Seon-Hong-Ho will play the first leg of the Asian Games group stage against Kuwait on September 19th. Afterwards, he faces Thailand on the 21st and Bahrain on the 24th.
