Spanish La Liga manager Aguirre Mallorca praised Kang-in Lee. It seems that the director, who constantly sprinkled ‘red pepper powder’ on the transfer, also turned his mind to Lee Kang-in’s performance.
Mallorca drew 1-1 with Athletic Bilbao in the 32nd round of La Liga in the 2022-23 season held in Sonmo City, Mallorca, Mallorca, Spain on the 2nd (Korean time). However, the one point recorded by Mallorca came from Lee Kang-in’s toes.
Lee Kang-in scored the opening goal in the 13th minute of the second half. Lee Kang-in connected the pass given by Muriki into the middle of the penalty area with a left-footed shot. It was his 6th goal this season.
After the game, Mallorca coach Aguirre said in an interview with local Spanish media such as Marca, “I don’t like to praise a specific player.”
Director Aguirre said, “Since I joined the team, Lee Kang-in is having the best moment. I am checking it every week. We are happy now that we are together with Lee Kang-in.”
Lee Kang-in has recorded the best performance since entering La Liga this season with 6 goals and 4 assists. He went down in history as the first Korean player to achieve 10 offensive points in one season in La Liga.
Lee Kang-in is already rewriting the history of Korean football in Spain. In the 30th round of the Primera Liga in the 2022-23 season against Getafe held last month, he became the first Korean player to score multiple goals.
In addition, he was honored to be selected as one of the 47 best 11 candidates for the 2022-23 season announced by the La Liga Secretariat on the 2nd (Korean time). Lee Kang-in was selected as a candidate for the best 11 midfielder category.
Lee Kang-in is proving his best season with his skills, as the coach said, including being nominated for April Player of the Month selected by the La Liga Secretariat. 크크크벳
In fact, manager Aguirre sprinkled red pepper powder whenever rumors of Lee Kang-in’s transfer came out. Lee Kang-in is currently receiving love calls from several teams in the English Premier League. Five clubs, including Son Heung-min’s Tottenham, Newcastle and Aston Villa, are eager to sign Lee Kang-in.
However, whenever this happens, manager Aguirre is spreading ‘false rumors’ about Lee Kang-in’s transfer fee. Director Aguirre, following last February, also recently revealed that “Lee Kang-in’s buyout is 30 million euros (approximately 43 billion won),” confusing the recruiting team.
The Spanish press has already confirmed with the club that Lee Kang-in’s transfer fee was 18 million euros (approximately 26 billion won), which refuted manager Aguirre’s 30 million euros.
