Finally, Lee Kang-in (22-PSG) has reached the top of the Ligue 1 pecking order. He makes our Best 11 of the Month. The selection is based on four matches from rounds 9 through 12.
Ligue 1’s official website, Uber Ligue 1 Uber Eats, announced on Sunday (KST) that Lee Kang-in was named to the Best 11 for the four matches from Rounds 9 through 12 of Ligue 1, and that “four players from PSG, who have won four consecutive matches, were included in the Best 11.
The outlet said of Lee, who has an average rating of 6, ‘He was injured at the start of the season. He was called up to the South Korean national team for the Asian Games. Initially, Lee didn’t get a chance to impress in the league. However, he is finally showing his talent to perfection in Ligue 1. He recorded an assist against Brest and scored against Montpellier. He’s back in the PSG main squad, and he’s shining perfectly.
Lee’s talent and hard work are paying off.
After his return, he started in the opening match of Ligue 1, but was injured in the second game. He rehabbed for almost a month. Due to his commitments with the South Korean national team, he was unable to focus on PSG for a while.
It seemed like a red flag was raised for his competition for a starting spot. However, after winning the gold medal at the Asian Games, he joined PSG and immediately made his mark. His selection for this month’s Best 11 was a foregone conclusion.
In the last 10 rounds, he was named as a midfielder, and in the 11th round, he was named as a left winger.
That’s why PSG coach Luis Enrique has nothing but praise for Lee. “He’s a really good player. He can play many positions perfectly,” he said.
From left winger to central attacking midfielder, Lee is tinkering with his transfer card. It’s not that Lee is less competitive as a left winger, it’s just that the team has no cracks outside of Mbappe, and no one in central midfield who can tear up opposing defenses.
Along with Lee, Kylian Mbappe also made the Best 11 as a frontline striker. With a 6.9 rating, he was the highest-rated of the Best 11. Joining Mbappe in the top two is Florian Sotoka (RC Lens).
In the midfield, Lee was joined by Alexandre Golovin (AS Monaco), Adrian Thomasson (RC Lens), Warren Zaire-Emericka (PSG), and Hicham Bodoui (Nice), while the back three included Lenny Yolo (LOSC), Isaac Touré (Lorient), and Marquinhos (PSG). Le Havre’s Arthur Desmas was named goalkeeper.
