Lee Kang-in’s team PSG said on SNS, “Lee Kang-in won the gold medal. Congratulations to Lee Kang-in, who won the Asian Games,’ he said, expressing joy. Lee Kang-in’s PSG colleague Mbappe celebrated Lee Kang-in’s victory by leaving a clap emoji on Lee Kang-in’s SNS post.
There was also interest in France that South Korea beat Japan to win the Asian Games. Local media such as French media Foot1 said, “PSG has been called up to the Asian Games with the hope of Lee Kang-in winning the trophy.” Thanks to this, Lee Kang-in does not have to serve in the military. PSG leaders would have been happy to make such a choice after South Korea’s win over Japan. Lee Kang-in has shortened his military service to three weeks. PSG can’t help but be pleased, he said. “Lee Kang-in, like other national heroes, shortened his military service to three weeks. PSG has minimized the problems caused by Lee Kang-in’s absence. PSG manager Luis Enrique said, “I can laugh.”
PSG have been struggling early this season. PSG suffered a 1-4 defeat in the second Group F match of the 2023-24 UEFA Champions League against Newcastle United on the 5th. PSG led 7-3 in ball possession, but suffered a crushing defeat with only two effective shots. Mbappe appeared to be isolated from the opposing defense with only two shots. In the seventh round of the 2023-24 French League against Clermont, which was held prior to Newcastle, they drew 0-0 without scoring a goal. PSG showed poor attacking performance against Clermont, who remain in the relegation zone, failing to score.
French media Le10 Sport said on the 6th, “PSG lacks creativity somewhat, but paradoxically, there are two players with creativity,” adding, “Asensio can help PSG’s creativity, especially Lee Kang-in.” Asensio was injured, and Lee Kang-in is playing in the Asian Games, so he cannot play for PSG. PSG also mentioned that they are hoping for a quick return of the two players.
