On the 22nd, PSG announced on the club’s official website that it would be leaving for Japan for a pre-season Asian tour. PSG said, “The club held a Japanese tour from July 22nd to August 1st for two consecutive years. We are happy to meet Japanese fans again this year.”

Neymar and Lee Kang-in, who are recovering from injuries, were also listed on the list for this Asian tour, while PSG’s representative star Kylian Mbappe was excluded due to friction with the club. Lee Kang-in was initially injured in a friendly match and attention was focused on whether he would join the Asian tour, but he safely boarded the roster.

Initially, PSG held this friendly match to enhance the game sense of the players ahead of the Asian tour. In the first pre-season friendly against Le Havre held at Campus PSG outside Paris, France, PSG’s training ground, Lee Kang-in, who newly joined PSG, was also listed on the starting list, raising expectations for his performance in the first game after wearing the PSG uniform.

Lee Kang-in, who started as a right winger, exchanged balls with Ashraf Hakimi and Marco Asensio, showing off the pressure and creating threatening attack opportunities.

However, before the end of the first half, problems arose with his body. Lee Kang-in, who sprinted to the opposing camp in the counterattack scene in the 42nd minute of the first half, was suspicious after touching the back of his right thigh, and was replaced a minute later complaining of thigh pain in front of coach Enrique. Coach Enrique called Lee Kang-in to the bench right away because there was no reason to overdo it in the friendly match.

In case of a serious injury, he could have been excluded from the Asian tour list, but it is expected that he will be included in the list and not injured enough to not be able to accompany him. However, it is not yet certain whether he will participate or not as the extent of Lee Kang-in’s injury has not been disclosed.

Abrelach Bulma, a leading French reporter familiar with PSG news, said about Lee Kang-in’s condition, “I will undergo a series of tests during the tour. In order to continue,” he said.

However, from the standpoint of PSG, there is a high possibility that Lee Kang-in, who was newly recruited this summer, will be used excessively in the pre-season game and cause problems in the selection for the next season.

Lee Kang-in drew attention by showing a friendly look with Neymar while taking a commemorative photo with the PSG team for their departure from the Japan tour.

In the video released by PSG, Neymar was also caught playing a joke on Lee Kang-in. Neymar pointed with his finger as if telling Lee Kang-in to put his hand on the body of Marco Verratti standing in front. Then Lee Kang-in immediately put his hand on the waist of Vera Tea, and Vera Tea was startled and looked back and laughed.

Meanwhile, despite the injury, PSG’s interest in Lee Kang-in has been tremendous since he came to Japan. On the 23rd, PSG’s official account in Japan, ‘PSG JAPAN’, released a video of the PSG team’s arrival in Japan and Lee Kang-in’s fan service under the titles “Osaka” and “Lee Kang-in’s arrival”.

In the first Osaka video released, the PSG players each took their carriers and got off the plane, and Lee Kang-in followed Neymar and was caught carrying his carrier and getting off the plane without difficulty. If his injury was severe, the club could have taken special measures, but Lee Kang-in took care of his luggage and seemed to have no problems moving.

In the video of Lee Kang-in arriving at an airport in Japan, which was released later, Lee Kang-in performing fan service for Japanese fans. When Lee Kang-in saw the fans standing near the airport entrance, he immediately dragged his suitcase and signed his uniform and papers. Japanese fans shouted the name ‘Lee Kang-in’ loudly, and many people gathered at the spot where Lee Kang-in was standing and stretched out his arms to get his autograph. It was a part where I could feel the popularity towards Lee Kang-in in Japan.

In the midst of this, the French media paid attention to Lee Kang-in’s popularity, saying that a new star was born in the team, and the fans’ enthusiasm for Lee Kang-in.

The French media ‘VIPSG’ reported on Lee Kang-in’s popularity on the 23rd (Korean time), saying, “Lee Kang-in is the new star of PSG.”

VIPSG commented on Lee Kang-in’s popularity in Japan, saying, “Lee Kang-in caused a sensation in Japan. When he got off the PSG plane, many fans were waiting for him.”

“PSG is in Japan, and their star is no longer Neymar. It is not Mbappe who remains in Paris. Lee Kang-in took over the star from them and received cheers from local fans at the airport,” he explained, following Neymar and Mbappe as a new star of PSG.

Neymar and Mbappe are both players representing PSG’s heyday. Neymar announced a new start for PSG by recording the highest transfer fee ever, and with Mbappe’s joining, PSG has grown into one of the best teams in Europe. If Lee Kang-in grows into a new star like the two players, it is expected to be good news not only for PSG but also for Korean fans.

Lee Kang-in, who received a lot of attention as a new star, has proved to be a hot topic, receiving many PSG fans’ worries and French media’s concerns even after his injury in the last friendly match.

The PSG fan account, ‘PSG Community’, showed concern that he might have suffered from the ‘PSG injury curse’ by citing his injury history as an example when Lee Kang-in left the last friendly match due to injury.

The account explained, “If you look at Lee Kang-in’s injury history, there are only 8 games he has missed due to injury so far.”

Looking at Lee Kang-in’s injury history data presented as a basis, he missed one game in August 2019 due to a problem with the hamstring muscle of the thigh, and then missed about 7 weeks due to an injury to the front of the left thigh in November 2019. At this time, he missed 7 games. This injury is Lee Kang-in’s first and last long-term injury. Afterwards, Lee Kang-in was infected with the Corona 19 virus that spread around the world in December 2020 and missed two games. Since then, he has never missed a game due to injury.

As soon as Lee Kang-in, who had not been injured in more than 3 years, came to PSG, he complained of pain in his thigh.

The French media score also said, “Lee Kang-in was injured right before halftime. The PSG coaching staff preferred not to risk Lee Kang-in. Information on the extent of the injury has not been released yet. If Lee Kang-in, an excellent player, leaves the field for a few weeks, it could be a big blow to PSG, whose season is just starting.”

In fact, PSG suffered from many matches in the 2022/23 season due to the injury and departure of key players. Prior to the second leg of the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 against Bayern Munich, Neymar, a key striker, suffered an ankle injury during the game and was ruled out for the season.

Key players such as Kylian Mbappe, Hakimi, Nuno Mendes, and Marco Verratti all suffered from injuries to the extent that there was no time when they did not miss due to injury. If Lee Kang-in is absent for a long time due to this injury or if there is a setback in preparation for the season, not only Enrique’s loss, but also PSG fans are expected to be concerned.

Meanwhile, Lee Kang-in, who arrived in Osaka and showed his face, will play Al Nasr (Saudi Arabia) and Cerezo Osaka (Japan) at 7:00 pm on the 25th and 7:00 pm on the 28th, respectively, and Inter Milan (Italy) in Tokyo on August 1 at 7:00 pm.

After completing his schedule in Japan, Lee Kang-in will head to his home country, Korea, with the PSG team, and will face Jeonbuk Hyundai at the Busan Asiad Main Stadium on August 3 to finish the East Asian tour schedule and prepare for PSG’s next season as a new star.
