Lee Kang-in is more likely to play in the UEFA Champions League. An early call-up for the Asian Games will be more difficult.
“Marco Verratti’s move to Qatari club Al Ahrabi is imminent,” European transfer market journalist Fabrizio Romano said on social media on Sunday. 홀덤사이트 Verratti was also left off the Champions League roster announced by Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) earlier in the day. Verratti has been a fixture in the PSG midfield for more than a decade, but has been sidelined by new coach Luis Enrique as he rebuilds the team around younger players.
Local French media outlets are reporting that Lee Kang-in could be in line for the position. “Lee Kang-in, who has played in the center of the field for Mallorca (Spain) and is very creative, could play in Verratti’s place,” said Onze Mondiale.
After suffering a left quadriceps (front thigh muscle) injury last month, Lee is on the verge of a comeback. If he regains his match fitness, he could be available for the league match against Nice on Saturday and the Champions League group stage match against Dortmund (Germany) on Tuesday. In between those two games, the team will face Kuwait in the Asian Games group stage on the 19th, followed by Thailand.
If Lee wants to play in the Champions League and cement his place in the squad, he won’t be able to join the national team early. He’ll have to wait until the tournament, which starts on July 27, before he can join the Asian Games squad.
In the worst case scenario, PSG could refuse to send him to the team at all. This is because the Asian Games are not organized by the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) or the Federation Internationale de Football Association (FIFA), so there is no obligation to send a team. For players, it’s not an option due to military service, but for players who don’t have a firm place in the team, it’s difficult to override a club’s wishes.
“Personally, I want to join the team as soon as possible, but it’s up to Lee Kang-in to decide,” said Hwang Sun-hong.
