Lee Kang-in became the main character for the first time this season.
Lee Kang-in, who started his professional career in Spain, moved to Valencia as a teenager and went through youth, and debuted in the Valencia first team in 2018 at the age of 17. However, I didn’t play as many games as he expected and I couldn’t find my position. Eventually he moved to Mallorca in 2021.
In his first season at Mallorca, he played mainly as a substitute. However, in the second half he started to increase his playing time. In the second half of the 2021-22 season, when manager Javier Aguirre took over, Mallorca barely escaped relegation, and Lee Kang-in slowly began to show his sharp left-footed kick. Lee Kang-in scored 1 goal and 2 assists in 30 appearances in La Liga in the 2021-22 season.
And finally, Lee Kang-in’s career high this season is being made. Lee Kang-in, completely trusted by coach Aguirre, is playing an active role as a key midfielder in Mallorca’s attack this season. Lee Kang-in, who has recorded 5 goals and 4 assists in 29 games so far, is having the best season of his career.
In the most recent game, he also scored the first multi-goal in his career. Mallorca won 3-1 victory over Getafe in the 30th round of Spanish La Liga in the 2022-23 season held at Mallorca Estadi in Mallorca, Spain at 1:30 am (Korean time) on the 24th. Mallorca, who added 3 points, rose to 10th place in the league (40 points).
On this day, Mallorca allowed Celta Vigo’s Borja Mayoral to take the lead in the 23rd minute, but Lee Kang-in’s performance equalized. In the 12th minute of the second half, Lee Kang-in calmly pushed a shot from a teammate with his left foot and scored the equalizer. Antonio Rayo then scored a come-from-behind goal, giving Mallorca the chance to win. At the end of the second half, with Mallorca leading 2-1, Celta Vigo pulled the line high for an equaliser. 토스카지노
In the end, Lee Kang-in aimed for the back space and put a wedge in the game. In the 50th minute of the second half, Lee Kang-in quickly launched a counterattack, hitting about 70m directly and creating a one-on-one situation with the opposing goalkeeper. After that, he calmly split the net with his left foot and completed a multi-goal. Thanks to Lee Kang-in’s two goals, Mallorca won 3-1.
