‘Hwang Seon-Hong-Ho + Lee Kang-In’s future’ depends on PSG’s ‘decision’… ‘Gold medal→military service benefits→changing future’ persuasion is the key


Recently, Lee Kang-in (22), wearing a Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) uniform, was named Hwang Seon-hong, who can seek military service benefits. However, PSG’s ‘approval for borrowing’ has not yet fallen. It seems that the key is to make Lee Kang-in aware that joining the national team for each age group is positive for PSG’s future.토토사이트주소

On the afternoon of the 14th, coach Seonhong Hwang held a press conference at the Soccer Hall in Jongno-gu, Seoul, and unveiled 22 entries for the men’s soccer team for the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games. Lee Kang-in was added to the list. The competition kicks off in September. It was originally planned to be held last year, but was postponed for a year in the aftermath of the novel coronavirus infection, and will be held this year.

Lee Kang-in’s selection is not confirmed. Head coach Hwang Seon-hong said there was no problem with the selection of other players, but Lee Kang-in said that coordination with PSG was necessary. The Asian Games are not organized by the International Football Federation (FIFA). As a result, there is no obligation for the team to be selected.

Lee Kang-in left Mallorca in the Spanish La Liga on the 9th and made a new nest at PSG, a prestigious French club. Coach Seon-Hong Hwang explained, “Previously, coordination with Mallorca has been finalized, but it has not been long since Lee Kang-in moved to PSG, so we have to wait a little (for the confirmation of the selection).” 

According to coach Hwang Seon-hong, who said that he continues to communicate with Kang-in Lee, Kang-in Lee’s will to participate in the Asian Games is considerable. Director Hwang Seon-hong predicts that the related situation will end positively.

From PSG’s point of view, after the start of the 2022-2023 season, Lee Kang-in is sent to the national team with no obligation to recruit Lee Kang-in at the stage where the recruitment effect will be seen in earnest.

Director Hwang Seon-hong said, “We plan to convene the ‘complete group’ on September 4th. From September 4th to 12th, there is no problem in borrowing during the A match period. However, six days until the opening of the Asian Games (September 19) is a problem. If the club you belong to does not allow it, you have to go and come back. That part is ambiguous. We are working in various ways to solve it.”

In order for coach Hwang Seon-hong to receive an ‘OK’ sign from PSG, it must be emphasized that Lee Kang-in’s participation in the Asian Games will be of great help to PSG in the long run. It is no exaggeration to say that whether or not Lee Kang-in is hired depends on how he appeals for this part.

Hwang Seon-Hong-Ho will challenge to win three consecutive Asian Games following Incheon in 2014 and Jakarta-Palembang in 2018. Upon winning the gold medal, athletes receive only basic military training and are exempted from military service in accordance with the Military Service Act.

In PSG, Lee Kang-in’s departure at the beginning of the season may be regrettable, but if Lee Kang-in brings the results of military service benefits, it will be beneficial in the long run. For Korean overseas players, ‘duty of military service’ often becomes an obstacle when transferring. Because it is impossible to guarantee the continuity of a player’s life abroad, the ransom price does not rise compared to his ability.

Son Heung-min (Tottenham Hotspur) and Kim Min-jae (Napoli), who were exempted from military service after winning the gold medal in the last tournament, have since been on a winning streak. If Lee Kang-in is also exempted from military service and takes over the French stage with his skills, his ransom will rise vertically. In addition, PSG can fully utilize Lee Kang-in without any issues related to military service in the future. 

Director Hwang Seon-hong said, “(Lee Kang-in is selected) I think positively. As PSG looked to the future and recruited a large number of young prospects this summer, Lee Kang-in’s ‘positive effect’ on the club’s future due to the selection for the Asian Games should be more pointedly emphasized and persuaded. Hwang Seon-hong There seems to be no variable that the director cannot head to Hangzhou with him.
