Lee Kang-in (Paris Saint-Germain, PSG), who has been criticized by public opinion as the main character of the controversy over demotion in the future of Korean soccer, will stand on the ground a day before the announcement of the A-match list in March.

Lee Kang-in’s team Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) will play the 25th round of the 2023-2024 French Professional Football League 1 against Reims at 9 p.m. on the 10th (Korea time) in Paris, France.

Lee Kang-in played as a substitute in the second leg of the 2023-2024 UEFA Champions League round of 16 against Real Sociedad (Spain) on the 6th and contributed to PSG’s 2-1 victory and advance to the quarterfinals.

With his first help in the Champions League, he was also selected as the “help of the week” in UEFA.

Apart from his recent performance, Lee Kang-in is at the center of the issue.

This is because he was at the center of controversy over the retrograde after he was found to have had physical friction with captain Son Heung-min (Tottenham) during the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup last month.

As the facts became known and criticism rose, Lee Kang-in went to London, England, and bowed to Son Heung-min, trying to resolve the situation, but it is true that public opinion is still cold.

In a recent poll of 526 men and women aged 18 or older nationwide at the request of the Energy Economy Newspaper, 40.7% of the respondents said, “Football should not be selected because organizational power and cooperation are important.”

46.9% of the respondents said they should be selected considering the weight and skills of the team (in favor of selecting the national team), and 12.5% said they were not sure. Four out of 10 respondents still have critical views on Lee Kang-in’s demotion issue.

While the Korea Football Association has no clear position on investigation or post-mortem treatment regarding the Asian Cup infighting, interim head coach Hwang Sun-hong is in a very troubled situation over his selection.

Hwang, who temporarily took over the baton after the replacement of German coach Jurgen Klinsmann, was in charge of catching two rabbits in the two consecutive games against Thailand: a victory and a rebound in the atmosphere.

From Hwang’s point of view, there is a high possibility that he will be at the center of the criticism whether he chooses or not. In the end, he has no choice but to make a bold decision as he considers it a burden that the head coach will carry.

Earlier, Chung Mong-kyu, president of the association, said about Lee Kang-in at a press conference on the replacement of former coach Klinsmann on the 16th of last month, “I think there is only a disciplinary punishment for not calling.”

Coach Hwang has good memories of winning three consecutive Asian Games last year by winning a gold medal with Lee Kang-in at the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games. 고소득알바

The association did not put Lee Kang-in’s face on the poster for ticket reservation for the third round of the second qualifying round against Thailand at the Seoul World Cup Stadium on the 21st.

Only Son Heung-min (Tottenham), Kim Min-jae (Bayern Munich), Cho Hyun-woo (Ulsan Hyundai) and Lee Jae-sung (Mainz) were included. This scene shows that it is unclear whether Lee Kang-in will be on board.

There will be a March A national team roster announcement at 11 a.m. on the 11th at the Sinmun-ro Football Center in Jongno-gu. Attention is focusing on what kind of choice coach Hwang Sun-hong will make.
