About three weeks after returning from injury, Lee Kang-in has been sidelined again.
“After suffering a left quadriceps injury, Lee will need to undergo treatment until at least the end of the A-match period,” Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) announced on its official website on Wednesday.
Lee joined PSG in the summer transfer window. He started the first two games of the season, but his injury came at a time when he hadn’t yet established himself in the team. With the recent arrival of Ousmane Dembele and the return of Kylian Mbappe to the first team, there were fewer options for Lee to utilize.
He had previously missed the preseason due to injury. Lee was substituted in the first preseason game against Le Havre after complaining of pain in the back of his right thigh. After skipping the Japan tour, he returned to action against Jeonbuk Hyundai at the 2023 Coupang Play Series in Busan, South Korea, only to suffer an injury to his opposite thigh. 바카라사이트
It’s bad news for the national team, as Lee has been a key member of the squad since the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. He started all four games under Jürgen Klinsmann and all but the first one. Klinsmann, who has yet to win his first game in charge, has made it clear that he will not send Lee to the Asian Games and will use him in the A squad for the two A matches in Europe in September, leaving his call-up uncertain.
It’s a big blow for the Korean men’s soccer team, which is looking to win its third consecutive gold medal. The Asian Games will take place after the A-Match, but according to PSG’s announcement, the “minimum” treatment period is until the A-Match in September. If it takes longer to recover, it could affect their participation in the tournament. Even if he returns to the team for the Asian Games, he will need time to get back to full fitness.
