He grabbed his right hamstring. As if Enrique was startled, he personally checked Lee Kang-in's condition. Eventually he was substituted out. French media RMC Sports said, 'Lee Kang-in made a great debut at PSG. He quickly melted into the tempo of the game. Lee Kang-in tried to help his teammates in his attacks. But he felt a pain in his thigh. He stepped down as a replacement,' he assessed.

Fortunately, Lee Kang-in joined the East Asia tour. In the published photo, Lee Kang-in had a bright expression. He especially drew attention when he boasted of being in 'best friend mode' with Neymar once again. Neymar was smiling brightly with his hand on Lee Kang-in's shoulder. However, it is a question mark whether Lee Kang-in will be immediately put into the game held in Japan. In France, the possibility of Lee Kang-in's Busan tour debut was predicted.

Lee Kang-in is a recruitment that PSG has worked hard on. It is known that PSG general manager Louis Campos moved directly to recruit Lee Kang-in. Lee Kang-in transferred to PSG on the 9th. He signed a five-year contract until 2028. He wears the uniform number '19' and walks around the French stage. Expectations for Lee Kang-in, the 'New Parisian', are growing.

Lee Kang-in showed off his talent early on. He led South Korea to runner-up at the 2019 FIFA U-20 World Cup. The tournament's MVP, the 'Golden Ball', was also his share. However, there were some ups and downs on his professional stage. Lee Kang-in did not get a proper opportunity after joining the first team in Valencia. Rather, he had a hard time with 'bullying rumors' going around. Eventually, in the summer of 2021, he left Valencia, which he had loved for 10 years, and joined Real Mallorca. He once again showed off his talent to the fullest at Real Mallorca. He exploded his golden talent as a member of Real Mallorca in the 2022-2023 season.

PSG seems to highly value Lee Kang-in's ability. Immediately after joining Lee Kang-in, the club said, 'Lee Kang-in has been called a prodigy since childhood. Unfortunately, he couldn't find a place for himself in Valencia. He joined Real Mallorca in 2021. It was his time to shine. He quickly cemented himself in the top 11 spot. He was also joined as a member of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar by coach Paulo Bento. He has attracted interest from top teams in Europe. I decided to join PSG for the journey to the top. He plays with his left foot as a technical midfielder. He can play in all positions, both in the center and on the flanks. He plays comfortably even in tight spaces. All that remains is for him to prove his worth at the highest level. Lee Kang-in was selected as the best player ahead of Elling Holland (Man City) in the 2019 U-20 competition,' he explained.

Lee Kang-in is a talent who can fill the vacancy of Lionel Messi, who left for Inter Miami, due to his playing style. Currently, PSG lacks the number 10 (playmaker) type.

He seems to quickly become friendly with Spanish-speaking players such as Carlos Soler and Manuel Ugarte. Lee Kang-in, who started adapting to the storm, is considered one of the hottest stars on the East Asian tour.
