A reporter from ‘Built’ gave an evaluation of Lee Jae-sung.
The Korean national soccer team, led by coach Jurgen Klinsmann, drew 2-2 against Colombia in the ‘Hana Bank Invitational National Soccer Team Friendly Match’ held at Ulsan Munsu Soccer Stadium at 8:00 pm on the 24th.
Lee Jae-seong was included in the starting list that day. Lee Jae-sung was a player who contributed greatly to Korea’s advancement to the round of 16 at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, and was expected to be named on the list for the A match this March. Lee Jae-seong, who unexpectedly joined the national team during the A-match period in March, was selected from the first game by coach Klinsman and started.
Lee Jae-seong played as a side midfielder, but he ran endlessly across the side and center. Dribbling and passing based on sophisticated techniques, as well as pressure and defensive participation at the right time, played a good role on both sides of the offense and defense. Lee Jae-seong was on the ground until the 24th minute of the second half and was replaced by Son Jun-ho.
This is Lee Jae-seong, who has continued to perform well in his team recently. Jae-sung Lee recorded 3 goals and 2 assists in the month of February for his team Mainz, and in recognition of this, he was nominated for the German Bundesliga Player of the Month for February. Although winning the Player of the Month award was canceled, Lee Jae-sung being selected as a candidate for the award was tantamount to recognizing Lee Jae-sung’s performance.스포츠토토
A German local reporter also looked at Lee Jae-seong favorably. Reporter Markus Balczuweit, who is in charge of Werder Bremen and belongs to the influential German media ‘Bild’, came to the stadium that day to cover the event. Reporter Marcus said that he came to Korea to cover the news that coach Klinsmann, who is also a famous figure in Germany, would make his debut as a coach for the Korean national team during his trip to Korea. I asked reporter Marcus for his evaluation of Lee Jae-sung.
Reporter Marcus said, “Lee Jae-seong had difficulties adapting to Germany at first. However, after adjusting, he showed good performance in Holstein Kiel and transferred, and continues his performance in Mainz. Lee Jae-seong also grew after the World Cup, but Mainz. The team itself seems to have improved as a team since the World Cup.”
In fact, Lee Jae-sung quickly melted into the team after adapting in Germany, and showed a step forward after the World Cup. It was natural for reporter Marcus to praise Lee Jae-seong.
