Lee Kang-in, who became a wingback, was recognized for his performance against his parents’ team.
Football statistics site Whoscore announced the team of the week for the 2022/23 season La Liga round 36 on the 26th (Korean time).
Lee Kang-in, who played in the home game against his former team Valencia, helped Bedat Muriki’s header winning goal in the 19th minute of the second half of the day, leading Mallorca to a 1-0 victory.
Lee Kang-in received the highest rating of both teams with a whoscore score of 8.0 that day, along with fellow Cofete. The key pass recorded the most number of times with opponent Jose Gaya with 3 times, and the dribble was successful 4 times, the most after Kopete (5 times).
Lee Kang-in was selected as the official La Liga MOM (Man of the Match) and was recognized for his performance. It was even more joyous because it was a win against his home team.
Lee Kang-in started the game at wingback for the first time in the game that day and drew attention. It was an unfamiliar position, but he energized the team’s offense by advancing through his unique forward dribble and short pass linkage. It was regrettable that he did not have as much influence as when he played as an attacking midfielder.
In the second half, when coach Javier Aguirre changed Lee Kang-in’s position to an attacking midfielder, his influence grew even more and he was able to score the winning goal.
Along with Lee Kang-in, Kofete took a spot on the defensive line and was named to the Team of the Week. 안전놀이터
