Lee Cheon-soo cheered for the gold medal at the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games and asked coach Hwang Seon-hong and Lee Kang-in (22, Paris Saint-Germain) to make a strong determination.
Lee Chun-soo said on his personal channel ‘Lee Chun-soo’ on the 14th, “I feel frustrated just thinking about the Asian Games. There was a lot of talk about the composition of the members. “My older brother, Seonhong, whom I regard as my older brother, gets a lot of criticism, and I feel regretful,” he said.
He continued, “Lee Kang-in must definitely go to the Asian Games. What is so important about one year at Paris Saint-Germain (PSG)? “If I had to choose between my first year at PSG and the Asian Games gold medal, I would choose the Asian Games gold medal,” he said. “Kang-in should go to the Asian Games from the beginning.” He argued, “It makes no sense to go from the quarterfinals.”바카라사이트
Also, “I see the first year of PSG as an adjustment period. By winning a gold medal at the Asian Games and receiving special military service, you can grow further in Europe. The reason given was, “If he wins a gold medal, Kangin’s value in world soccer will increase.”
Lee Cheon-soo said, “Even if Kang-in does not play in the group stage, he must join the team before the first game of the group stage. (At the 2018 Jakarta-Palembang Asian Games) Son Heung-min, Hwang Ui-jo, and Cho Hyun-woo also did the same. Opponent players have different perspectives. “Kangin should be there from the beginning of the competition,” he emphasized.
Lee Cheon-soo participated in the 2002 Busan Asian Games and the 2006 Doha Asian Games. In addition to the Asian Games, he frequently faced Asian teams in various competitions.
Looking back on his old memories, he said, “Korea has the best advantage in the Asian Games. “Korea won the last two tournaments,” he said, “but there are difficulties when facing a Middle Eastern team. There are some good players among the wild card players on the Middle East team. If you score the first goal, you’ll be in big trouble. He said, “Even in the last Asian Games, Son Heung-min, Hwang Ui-jo, and Cho Hyun-woo were in trouble.”
Lastly, Lee Cheon-soo said, “If Kang-in doesn’t win the gold medal at the Asian Games, honestly, (Hwang) Seon-hong should quit coaching the 2024 Paris Olympics. I say this out of sincere respect. I will go into the competition with the mindset that, ‘If I don’t win a gold medal at the Asian Games, I won’t go to the Olympics.’ “I know how Seonhong feels,” he said emphatically.
Lee Cheon-soo said, “We all have to support now. All players have been decided. If you fail here, the director will take responsibility. He prayed for winning the Asian Games gold medal by saying, “All you have to do is get results at the Asian Games.”
Coach Hwang Seon-hong met with reporters at the Paju National Team Training Center (NFC) on the 14th and said, “I am in a frustrating situation about whether Lee Kang-in will join. I am personally communicating with Kangin. He wants to join soon. However, he confessed, “It is difficult to coordinate the timing of joining with the PSG club.”
Since the Asian Games are not a competition organized by the Federation of International Football Associations (FIFA), PSG’s team has no obligation to send Lee Kang-in. Coach Hwang said, “I hope we can come before at least 1-2 group stage games. PSG puts forward several conditions. I wish I could join before the tournament at the latest, but it’s frustrating. “It’s difficult to make a plan,” he said.
Depending on when Lee Kang-in joins, Director Hwang Seon-hong’s stern face is expected to improve. Coach Hwang Seon-hong leaves for Hangzhou, China with the important goal of winning gold medals in three consecutive competitions, following his gold medals at the 2014 Incheon Asian Games and the 2018 Jakarta-Palembang Asian Games.
