Jurgen Klinsmann (59), the national soccer team coach, did not actively recommend Lee Kang-in (22, Mallorca) to move to the Premier League.

Coach Klinsman returned home through Incheon International Airport on the morning of the 26th after a 10-day trip to Europe. During his business trip, Klinsman personally checked the skills of overseas players playing in Europe, such as Son Heung-min, Kim Min-jae, Lee Kang-in, Lee Jae-seong, and Oh Hyun-kyu.

Recently, Lee Kang-in has been performing at his best since entering La Liga. Lee Kang-in scored the winning goal following a 70-meter solo dribble against Getafe on the 24th, scoring his first multi-goal after advancing to La Liga. Premier League teams are pouring love calls to Lee Kang-in, who has scored 5 goals and 4 assists this season.

Currently, Mallorca’s power without Lee Kang-in is unimaginable. The La Liga Secretariat is also working hard on ‘Lee Kang-in Marketing’ to the extent of assigning Mallorca games according to Korean time. Mallorca is in the position that it can let go of Lee Kang-in if there is a suitable offer this summer. Aston Villa, Burnley, Newcastle, and Wolverhampton are all interested in signing Lee Kang-in.

Coach Klinsman, who personally looked after Kang-in Lee in Spain, is also encouraged by his performance. Klinsman said, “Lee Kang-in is doing very well in Mallorca. He also did well against Uruguay last time. He expressed satisfaction, saying, “I am excited because he is doing really well, even scoring goals (in his team).”

However, Lee Kang-in’s transfer to the Premier League is an adventure. His skills may improve in a bigger league, or he may be pushed out of the competition for a new team. Even for European players, if the opportunity to participate in their team is reduced, the performance of the national team can be adversely affected. Son Heung-min also went through growing pains when he entered the Premier League from the Bundesliga in 2015.

Regarding Lee Kang-in’s possibility of going to the Premier League, Klinsman said, “Lee Kang-in is on a very good team. Of course, he would like to go to a better team as a player, but it will be good to grow because it is a good environment to remain in Mallorca.”토토사이트

Klinsman’s judgment is that it is more advantageous for Lee Kang-in to maintain his form to play as an ace in Mallorca than to go through a period of adaptation at a new club. It is clear that La Liga is as competitive as the Premier League in the world. Unlike the fans’ wishes for Lee Kang-in to go to a bigger stage, Klinsman’s thoughts, who must think of the national team first, may be different.

In fact, Klinsmann said of Jung Woo-young (24, Freiburg), who plays in the Bundesliga, “Every player is in a different situation. Jung Woo-young is not getting a chance in Freiburg.”

On the other hand, regarding Oh Hyun-kyu, who plays for Celtic, Klinsman said, “Oh Hyun-kyu used body language and was starving while fighting among good players. I was able to confirm my will. I was able to see what kind of environment Oh Hyun-gyu plays in.” / jasonseo34@osen.co.kr
