It was a match where we could properly understand why Mallorca kept Lee Kang-in.
Last winter, there was a team that wanted Lee 안전놀이터 Kang-in in the transfer market, and Lee Kang-in also wanted to transfer, but Mallorca forced Lee Kang-in to remain. The reason was so simple. This is because it was a team that would not return without Lee Kang-in.
On the 12th (Korean time), Mallorca recorded a 1-1 draw against Real Sociedad in the 25th round of the Spanish Primera Liga in the 2022-23 season at Visit Mallorca Estadi.
Leading striker Bedat Muriki, who scored 10 goals this season and is the team’s top scorer, was unable to play in this match due to accumulated warnings. With him out, the Mallorca offense really couldn’t find a catch. It was helplessness itself.
In this situation, it was Lee Kang-in who struggled alone. It was Lee Kang-in who led the game, energized the attack, and prevented defeat. Without Muriki, Mallorca could be called a ‘one-man team’. Mallorca was dragged around with a goal from Carlos Fernandez in the second minute of the first half. I couldn’t figure out how to solve the attack on the king of kings.
At that time, Lee Kang-in led the attack. He energized the attack. In the 33rd minute of the first half, Lee Kang-in tried to break through two defenders on the right side of the arc. Lee Kang-in thought it was the opponent’s touch-out, but the referee declared Lee Kang-in a touch-out. Lee Kang-in protested against the referee. It was an intentional protest to reverse the mood. Home fans who watched this also joined in the protest.
After that, the atmosphere gradually came to Mallorca. It was a phenomenon created by Lee Kang-in. And after passing the goalkeeper in the 4th minute of the second half, Lee Kang-in shot and shook the net with his right foot. Lee Kang-in’s pressure and persistence, and his role as an ace shone. Lee Kang-in’s 3rd goal in the league. It was a goal that prevented the team from losing. He also showed off a threatening free kick in the 16th minute of the second half.
Lee Kang-in was substituted out in the 36th minute of the second half. It was clearly demonstrated in this game. That Lee Kang-in is Mallorca’s ace. Mallorca is a team that cannot be without Lee Kang-in.
