Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone held a press conference prior to the pre-season friendly match between Team K-League and Atletico Madrid in the first leg of the Coupang Play Series to be held on the 27th at 5:30 pm on the 26th at the Seoul World Cup Stadium.

On the morning of the 26th, Atlético, which entered the country through Incheon International Airport on the 25th, moved to Seoul after conducting light training at the Seongnam Soccer Center, the clubhouse of Seongnam FC.

Coach Simeone said, “Thank you for the hospitality and welcome. I received a lot of hospitality at the airport and hotel. I will work hard so that fans who come to the stadium can enjoy it.”

He continued, “I think the club grows every day in a friendly match like this, and I expect more supporters to support us. The goal is to play a game that will help us in the first game of the league.”

This summer, Atlético was rumored to be interested in Lee Kang-in. Lee Kang-in, who played for RCD Mallorca last season, has emerged as the best midfielder in Korea.

In addition to attack points, Lee Kang-in showed his strengths regardless of opponents by showing excellent situational judgment, sensible forward passing, reckless dribbling and ball keeping skills.

Lee Kang-in was also nominated for the midfielder category in the ‘Team of the season’ (TOTS), which selects the best team in La Liga for the season. Although he did not win the award, Lee Kang-in was recognized for his ability.

In particular, Lee Kang-in played as a substitute in the 31st round of La Liga in the 2022-2023 season against Atletico on April 27, taking 34 ball touches with a pass success rate of 81% (13/16), 2 shots, and 100 dribbles. % (2/2), and 1 ball injection in the final third, proving why he is the ace of Mallorca.

When asked about Lee Kang-in, coach Simeone replied, “Lee Kang-in has signed a contract with Paris Saint-Germain . Korean football is growing and is recognized worldwide. I will closely watch tomorrow’s game and find a player to be interested in.”

This reminds me of Yang Hyun-joon, who was selected as the ‘Team K-League’ when Tottenham Hotspur visited Korea in July last year. At that time, Hyun-Jun Yang beat Ryan Sessegnon and Eric Dyer in turn with his unstoppable dribble. Although he failed to score, he also played a big role against Tottenham, assisting the goal of Lars (Suwon FC).

Yang Hyun-joon, who gained confidence in the game, emerged as the ace of Gangwon FC with 8 goals and 4 assists. On the 24th, Yang Hyun-joon transferred to Celtic, a member of the Scottish League, and succeeded in advancing to Europe.

It’s a friendly match that will please the fans’ eyes, but it’s also a ‘showcase’ for players to show themselves in front of world-class players. Let’s see if another star can be born in this friendly against Atletico Madrid.
