Exhausted Lee Kang-In Caring Coach Enrique "You've had a week off, go sunbathe and relax"Đăng 2 tuần trước
Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) coach Luis Enrique has given Lee Kang-ki a week off after his grueling schedule at the Asian Cup
Lee played full time in all six matches before the South Koreans were eliminated 0-2 by Jordan in the quarterfinals of the 2023 Asian Cup in Qatar on Sunday. He also played two extra-time matches. Not including extra time and penalties, he has played 600 minutes. Upon returning to PSG, he had to play against Lille on the 11th, leaving him no time to recover.
Enrique decided to spare him. In a press conference with Le Parisien and other local media ahead of the Lille game, when the timing of his return and utilization came up, Enrique said: "He had to be away from the team for a long period of time because of the long competition. His game feeling is very good now. We gave him a week off. I want him to get some sun. I'm going to rest and come back next week refreshed," he said.
The club's decision to give Lee a week off in the middle of the season will allow him to regain his form without the risk of injury or the possibility of a season-ending injury.
While he may need some time to get back to full fitness after his vacation, it's likely that he'll be available for the first leg of the UEFA Champions League 카지노사이트 round of 16 first leg against Real Sociedad on Friday. If he misses that game, his return will likely be a regular-season away game against Nantes on the 18th.
During the press conference, Lee came up one more time. "When you have Ousmane Dembele, Kylian Mbappe, Bradley Barcola and others, and you have Lee Kang-in, Vitinha, Marco Asensio and others, you can't help but be aggressive," Enrique said when asked if the football he wants to play is coming together.
Lee Kang-in led the South Korean offense at the Asian Cup, scoring a team-high three goals alongside Son Heung-min. All three goals were field goals. However, after scoring three goals in the group stage, Lee's performance deteriorated as opponents became stiffer and Korea's tactical solutions became less effective.
