Javier Aguirre, who leads RCD Mallorca, is persuading Lee Kang-in, who wants to leave the team.
On the 27th (Korean time), coach Aguirre said in an interview with Spanish media ‘Marca Radio’ that “Lee Kang-in is an important member of the team” and is persuading him to stay.
Lee Kang-in, who has been evaluated as one of the best players in Spanish La Liga beyond Mallorca this season, recently had a conflict with Mallorca while struggling with a transfer.
In particular, reporter Juanmi Sanchez of Marca reported on the 25th, “Lee Kang-in was furious when Mallorca rejected two offers to recruit him. He immediately unfollowed Mallorca on Instagram.” .
Another Spanish journalist, Mateo Moreto, said on the 26th, “There are two clubs that have offered Lee Kang-in close to 10 million euros (approximately 13.4 billion won).” .
Regarding the anonymous club, local media speculate that it is Atletico Madrid, one of the strong La Liga powerhouses.
While there were observations that the relationship between Lee Kang-in and Mallorca was gradually cracking due to the transfer offer, manager Aguirre did his best to persuade Lee Kang-in.
“I told Lee Kang-in that you are a very important member of the team,” said Aguirre.
Coach Aguire, who led Leganes in the 2019/20 season, lost two of his main strikers at once when Ennesiri and Braithwaite moved to Sevilla and Barcelona, respectively, in January 2020.
“I used the 5-3-2 format at the time, so it was fatal for both strikers to go out,” said Aguirre.
“Lee Kang-in is a really important player to me whether he plays or not,” he added.
“We are giving Lee Kang-in a lot of love here, and since he came to Mallorca, Lee Kang-in has grown a lot, and I personally feel really grateful.”
“Lee Kang-in took over the starting lineup I wanted from him at the beginning of the season, and he responded with plays, goals and assists,” he said again. “Lee Kang-in is an important part of the team.” 메이저놀이터
