Luis Enrique has confirmed that Lee Kang-in will play against Jeonbuk Hyundai.
Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) will play a preseason friendly against Jeonbuk Hyundai on March 3 at 5 p.m. at the Busan Asiad Stadium.
Previously, PSG toured Japan and played three matches. The results were one draw and two losses. They drew with Al Nasr (Saudi Arabia) and lost to Cerezo Osaka (Japan) and Inter Milan (Italy).
The day before the match, PSG arrived at Gimhae International Airport and immediately held an open training session. Luis Enrique and Marquinhos were present for the pre-match press conference.
First, Enrique said, “We are preparing for the last game of preseason. The goal is to improve our physical performance and play a good game against Jeonbuk tomorrow,” Enrique said.
Marquinhos added: “We have a high level opponent tomorrow, so we need to prepare well. We also aim to improve the team every game. We are working hard to do that.”
There is a lot of speculation about Lee Kang-in’s availability. Lee impressed in the first preseason game. Starting against Le Havre, Lee made his presence felt as he moved between the right and center of the pitch. However, he had to be substituted early on due to injury.
He then accompanied the team on their tour of Japan, but didn’t feature until their most recent game against Inter Milan. However, he was a bright spot on the bench, laughing and joking with Neymar. It seems that Enrique and the club didn’t want to risk a player with a recent injury in a friendly.
For now, he’s a lock to start. “He’s in good shape to play,” Enrique said. I don’t know how many minutes he will play, but he will play,” Enrique said.
