Lee Kang-in returns home after best season to fan reception

Lee Kang-in, 22, has returned home to a warm welcome from his fans after a stellar season with Mallorca in the Spanish Primera Liga. He will now focus on the two June A matches and the summer transfer market.

Lee arrived at Incheon International Airport on the afternoon of July 7 wearing a pink cap and a blue T-shirt.

He received letters, bouquets of flowers, and gifts from about 100 fans as he quickly exited the arrivals hall.

In his second season with Mallorca, Lee has earned the respect of head coach Javier Aguirre, starting 33 of the team’s 38 games. He has also scored six goals and provided six assists, the most offensive points in his professional career.

To top it all off, Lee became the first South Korean player to record double-digit offensive points in a single season in the Primera Liga, as well as a multi-goal game, making this season even more significant.

Lee’s consistent performances throughout the season helped Mallorca stay in the competition for the second consecutive season. The midfielder was also named in the best 11 midfielders of the season 스포츠토토.

His regular appearances for the club also helped him secure a spot on the national team. His performances for Mallorca earned him a spot on the final roster for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, where he played a key role in the team’s second group game against Ghana, assisting on Cho Kyu-sung’s goal.

He was also called up for the first A-League match under Jürgen Klinsmann in March, coming on as a substitute against Colombia and playing the full game against Uruguay.

Lee will attend a fan signing on Nov. 11 before joining the squad in Busan the following day to prepare for a two-game series against Peru (Nov. 16 in Busan) and El Salvador (Nov. 20 in Daejeon).

Lee is also expected to look for a new team during the summer transfer window.

Lee’s performances this season have attracted interest from Atletico Madrid (Spain), Manchester United, Newcastle, Brighton, Aston Villa, Burnley (England), and AC Milan (Italy).

Lee had already been linked with a move in the winter transfer window in January, but the move fell through due to opposition from Mallorca.
