Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) coach Luis Enrique has been singing the praises of Lee Kang-In.
The French club cruised to a 3-0 victory over Strasbourg in the ninth round of the 2023-24 French Ligue 1 season at the Parc des Princes in Paris, France, on Sept. 22.
Kylian Mbappe opened the scoring in the 10th minute before Carlos Soler added a brace in the 31st minute and Fabian Ruiz in the 32nd minute. PSG extended their unbeaten run to four games and moved into second place in the league.
Ahead of the game, Enrique praised Lee Kang-in. Lee won a gold medal at the Asian Games in South Korea, where he also scored a debut goal, a multi-goal game, and two consecutive goals for the A team. Lee came in with a huge upside. Coach Enrique has high hopes for him, too.
“He has exploded and is proving his class,” Enrique said of Lee. He will be the centerpiece of our system. He can play from midfield to the number nine, and he’s a very interesting player.”토스카지노
Lee has repaid his coach’s trust. Despite not scoring an offensive point, Lee set up Soler for his second goal, completed 90% of his passes, made one key pass, one interception, and two tackles. It was his first full game since joining PSG.
After the game, Enrique was full of praise for Lee.
“It was the first game after the international break. It’s true that there were concerns. It’s obviously not easy to change tactics and the mentality of the players, but the team played well. We controlled and managed the game very well,” he said, expressing his satisfaction with the entire team.
Speaking about the players who got their first start in a long time, including Lee Kang-in, Enrique said, “Players who have played less this season stepped up and did well. They got their chance today and showed the best of their abilities.”
Now comes a really important game for PSG. It’s the UEFA Champions League (UCL). The competition PSG wants to win the most, but they lost 1-4 to Newcastle in the second leg of their last Group F match. They need to turn it around. PSG will face AC Milan in the third leg on June 26.
In the lead-up to this match, Enrique tried a bold experiment. It paid off with a 3-0 win. Local media have suggested that the same team that started against Strasbourg could do the same against AC Milan. This means that Lee could also start against AC Milan.
“Every game has different tactics and strategies. But there are the same things. My goal is to have 11 men attacking and 11 men defending.”
