Asian Games or A matches?

Regarding Lee Kang-in (22) wearing the Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) uniform, a prestigious French professional soccer club, Korean national soccer team coach Jürgen Klinsmann and Hwang Seon-hong, Asian Games (AG) soccer team coach, are unable to come up with a clear position.

The national team will go on an expedition to Europe from the 2nd to the 12th of next month, and Hwang Seon-hong will also have convocation training at the Paju National Training Center (NFC) during the same period. Director Klinsman expects a ‘debut win’ with the best members including Lee Kang-in during this period. Director Hwang also seems to want to work together and decide on how to use Lee Kang-in. which one takes precedence.안전놀이터

The national team coach has authority over Lee Kang-in. An official from the Korea Football Association explained, “Usually, the national team coach has priority in selecting players.

But manager Klinsman is also in an awkward situation. This is because PSG did not give a definite answer to Lee Kang-in’s AG selection. Lee Kang-in, who joined PSG from this season, showed off his presence as a starter in the first game of the season. In this situation, PSG’s concerns have no choice but to grow. Manager Klinsman also cannot send Lee Kang-in, whose joining of the AG is uncertain, to manager Hwang. In addition, coach Klinsman, who has been controversial due to frequent overseas business trips, has to show something on this European expedition. Since coach Klinsman took over the helm, the national team recorded 2 draws and 2 losses in 4 home matches. Considering that coach Klinsman presented the goal of winning the Asian Cup and reaching the semifinals of the World Cup, the situation is unsatisfactory.

Even so, director Hwang cannot wait idly. Lee Kang-in is needed to win the AG three times in a row. If Lee Kang-in also wears a gold medal around his neck, he will receive military service benefits and release the shackles that restrict his activities in Europe. The Football Association is in a confident mood to join Lee Kang-in AG.

An official from the Korea Football Association said, “It will take time to discuss the issue of recruiting players that PSG did not have in the past.”
