Lee Kang-in (Paris Saint-Germain) has opened a relationship with Korea. Now, we look at the K-League All-Stars through friendly matches.
Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone said he would keep an eye on Team K-League players. Even if it was a one-time event, it was given an opportunity to show off its skills to the players and officials of prestigious European clubs.
The friendly match between Team K League and Atletico will be held on the 27th at 8:00 pm at the Seoul World Cup Stadium. To this end, Team K-League consists of a total of 22 players, including the ‘Fan Eleven’ selected by fans’ votes and the ‘Pick Eleven’ selected by coach Hong Myung-bo and coach Choi Won-kwon.
Not only domestic players, but also foreign players representing the K-League were covered. In addition, there are several prospects who will show their skills to Atletico. Bae Jun-ho (Daejeon Hana Citizen), who was rumored to advance to Europe as a key player in the U-20 World Cup quarterfinals, and Hwang Jae-won (Daegu FC), who will participate in the Hangzhou Asian Games, are outstanding resources.
In addition, Lee Seung-woo (Suwon FC) and Baek Seung-ho (Jeonbuk Hyundai), who are preparing a foothold in Korea to re-enter Europe, and Na Sang-ho (FC Seoul), who announced their intention to go to Europe, are cards that will motivate them against Atletico.
Coach Simeone has less resistance to Korean players. He also showed interest in Korean players through rumors of Lee Kang-in signing this summer. At a press conference ahead of the match against Team K League on the 26th, “There were rumors that Lee Kang-in was interested. In the end, Lee Kang-in signed a contract with Paris Saint-Germain,” he said, “Korean football is growing and being recognized.”
It is also possible to find another Korean player. Coach Simeone also opened up the possibility, saying, “I’ll take a good look at the K-League players tomorrow.” I have no intention of playing a friendly against Team K-League in an extension.
Coach Simeone said, “The first training in Korea focused on adjusting to jet lag. Young players also came up. Expectations, hopes, and spirit will be seen.”
