Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) head coach Luis Enrique praised Lee Kang-in as a player who
“always works hard, never loses the ball and scores goals.”
Lee scored the opening goal and the game-winner in the 10th minute of PSG’s 3-0 win
over Montpellier in the 11th round of the 2023-24 Ligue 1 match at the Parc des Princes in Paris, France, on Thursday.
Lee’s goal was his first in just his fifth game in Ligue 1 and his third consecutive
offensive point, following his debut goal for PSG in the third leg of the UEFA
Champions League (UCL) group stage against AC Milan (Italy) on May 26 and his first Ligue 1 assist against Brest on May 29.
Local media and statistical sites have praised Lee’s performance. Football statistics site
Fúscore.com gave Lee a high rating of 8.2. This is the second highest rating on the team after Ousmane Dembele (8.8).
French publication Le Parisien highlighted the player’s performances, stating that “PSG made a great decision in signing him.”
Coach Enrique was also full of praise for Lee.
“I know him because I used to play in Spain (Valencia and Mallorca),” Enrique said.
“He’s a player who works hard, doesn’t lose the ball, is good at pressing, scores, and can give the ball away.”
“Also, he has a great desire to play. That hunger is very important for a player’s
development,” he said, pointing to Lee’s potential. 스포츠토토맨
