Lee Kang-in, the ‘golden left foot’, returns… sprinting and shooting with a bright face → France is also paying attention

Golden Boy’ Lee Kang-in (22, Paris Saint-Germain) is ready to return from injury.

PSG released a short video showing Lee Kang-in training through the club’s social media on the 12th (Korean time). After cycling with his colleagues, he warmed up indoors with a trainer and some simple stretching.토토사이트

Lee Kang-in did not stop at indoor training but also stepped on the grass. He not only passed the ball to the rest of the players who were not called up for the A match, but also shot and sprinted without difficulty. His facial expression was bright throughout the training.

Now it seems like a return is really imminent. On the 3rd, Lee Kang-in hinted at his return from injury by posting a photo of him training on his personal social media and adding, “SOON.” Since he completed team training without any problems, it is highly likely that he will return in time for the league to resume after the A-match ends in September.

Lee Kang-in injured his thigh in the game against Toulouse on the 20th of last month. At the time, he started as a starter, but was replaced 6 minutes into the second half, and it was later revealed that he had a problem with his left quadriceps muscle. As a result, Lee Kang-in was excluded from the Klinsmann team, which will play two consecutive international matches in September, and remained in Paris to focus on rehabilitation.

It was his second injury after joining PSG. Lee Kang-in injured his hamstring during a friendly match with Le Havre in the preseason last July. At the time, he started and performed well in his unofficial debut for PSG, but left the pitch just before half-time, clutching the back of his thigh. Lee Kang-in did not participate in the subsequent Japanese tour.

Fortunately, the injuries were not serious. Lee Kang-in briefly played in a friendly match against Jeonbuk Hyundai held in Korea in early August to improve his condition, and returned in time for the opening match against Lorient. He made his official PSG debut, starting against Lorient.

Lee Kang-in, who returned, collapsed in the next game against Toulouse, causing concern. Concerns were even greater as the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games, which have military service issues at stake, will also begin at the end of this month. But fortunately, Lee Kang-in recovered quickly this time and his return is imminent.

French media outlets are also paying attention to the news of Lee Kang-in’s return. ‘Canal Supporters’ said on the 12th, “Lee Kang-in participated in part of the team’s training this Monday. He was a new member this summer and performed well in his debut match, but unfortunately he quickly suffered an injury and was sidelined for three weeks. He is now partially part of the team. “Training has resumed,” he said.

The media continued, “Lee Kang-in is currently recovering. He not only touched the ball but also trained with his teammates. This is an important part of his return to the pitch. PSG previously explained that he will receive treatment until the international break ends. He added, “We will be able to get more detailed information about Lee Kang-in’s physical condition in the future.”

‘Sport France’ also shared Lee Kang-in’s training video and said, “There is good news for Lee Kang-in. He is expected to return to the Ligue 1 stadium as long as the injury does not recur. He completed individual training and participated in group training. He is looking forward to his return. “It’s good progress towards this,” he welcomed.

Now, Lee Kang-in must face fierce competition for the starting position at PSG. His position is expected to overlap with Kylian Mbappe, who returned after a conflict with the club, as well as Ousmane Dembele, Marco Asensio, and Vitinha. However, since he can also play as a side attacker and central midfielder, it is highly likely that he will not have much difficulty securing playing time.

Meanwhile, whether and when Lee Kang-in will join the Asian Games is also of interest. According to coach Hwang Seon-hong, who leads the Asian Games national team, PSG plans to make a final decision on the 13th on when to let Lee Kang-in go. If Lee Kang-in joins, it could be a great help to Hwang Seon-hong, who is aiming for his third consecutive victory in the tournament.
