An analysis by local media has revealed that Spanish professional football Primera Lee is paying the residual price for Valencia's Lee Kang-in to leave the lease.
Spain's Deporte Valenciano said on the 25th (local time), “I am concerned about the current situation of Lee Kang-in in Valencia.” “Remaining in Valencia without a loan was not a good choice for Lee Gang-in.”
Lee Kang-in, who is called the future of Korean soccer, raised his expectations by winning the “Golden Ball” with Korea ’s runner-up at the World Cup under the age of 20 in Poland last year.
However, the number of appearances has decreased significantly in Valencia this season, with injuries and difficulties in starting competitions.
Although he played in 11 regular league games this season, nine of them have been replaced. The time of entry was also limited to 297 minutes, and the media pointed out that “Lee Kang-in is a technically outstanding player, but if he doesn't play, the player's value will inevitably decrease.” Kubo Takefusa (Mallorca) is being guaranteed a chance to continue by leaving the team from Real Madrid to Mallorca.
Kubo has scored 3 goals and 2 assists in 24 games this season, and his participation time is 1431 minutes, which is more than 4 times that of Lee Kang-in.
Lastly, Deporte Valenciano said, “Lee Kang-in can get more opportunities from other teams.”
