Lee Kang-in showed a professional attitude by not responding to provocations from the opponent’s bench.
Mallorca collapsed 0-2 to Sevilla in the 21st round of Spanish La Liga in the 2022-23 season held at Ramon Sanchez Pisjuan in Seville, Spain at 2:30 am (Korean time) on the 12th. With this loss, Mallorca failed to pursue the top spot in the league. 안전놀이터
Lee Kang-in, who played as a starter, was defeated, but performed well. In particular, when Mallorca started to rebound in the second half, Lee Kang-in became the center. He has perfectly proved that he is the Mallorca ace.
It started in the 7th minute of the second half. Predrag Rykovic connected a pass to Lee Kang-in at once. After passing the defender, Lee Kang-in boldly tried to shoot, but unfortunately he could not go to the goal. Lee Kang-in also led the attack on Mallorca with a sensible de-pressurization in the midfield.
In the 27th minute of the second half, Lee Kang-in sharply connected the free kick from the square, but the Sevilla defense cleared it first. Lee Kang-in took another good free kick opportunity in the 31st minute of the second half. As the shot deflected off the defensive wall, he headed for the goal, but missed the goal slightly.
The controversial situation was staged in the 39th minute of the second half. Lee Kang-in, who also showed tenacious defense, tried to counterattack after stealing the ball from Gonzalo Montiel. At this time, when Montiel grabbed Lee Kang-in with his hand, Lee Kang-in gestured to the referee to blow a foul. The referee acknowledged Montiel’s foul and issued a warning.
Then the Sevilla bench got hot. Sevilla coach Jorge Sampaoli was the first to receive a yellow card for a gesture of astonishment. Pablo Fernandez’s physical coach jumped out of the bench and called Kang-in Lee and openly got angry. I couldn’t see what he was saying, but after seeing this, the referee immediately ordered Coach Fernandez to leave.
If Lee Kang-in had reacted at this time, the game could have been overheated. For Mallorca, who needed a goal, the flow could have been cut off. However, Lee Kang-in calmly focused on the game.
This calmness of Lee Kang-in was also seen at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. In the first match against Uruguay, Federico Valverde tackled Lee Kang-in and then threw an uppercut and took a violent action. However, Lee Kang-in ignored Valverde’s provocation as if it had never happened.
