The video posted by the club showed Lee Kang-in and Muriki hugging each other and watching the game. In response, fans responded on social media, saying, “Let’s lock up the LEE so it can’t go back,” and “Let’s kidnap her right away.”
Lee Kang-in, who watched the game from the stands with Muriki, later visited the missing locker room where he had spent about two years since 2021. Mallorca players were waiting in the locker room, and the players who had just finished the game welcomed Lee Kang-in by hugging him when he came in.
Lee Kang-in is from Valencia Youth, but it is Mallorca that blossomed his talent. In 2011, when he was 10 years old, he joined Valencia Academy and became the youngest Korean player to debut on the European stage in October 2018 in the first round of the Copa del Rey against CD Evro.
He made his La Liga debut on January 12, 2019 against Real Valladolid and became the youngest Korean player to make his debut in the tournament as a substitute in the 2019/20 UEFA Champions League group stage against Chelsea. 파워볼게임
Most of all, in 2019, Lee made the best memories with his older brothers at the FIFA U-20 World Cup in Poland. Under coach Chung Jung-yong, Lee led his team to the finals for the first time in the tournament with his older brothers and achieved the result of being the runner-up. He personally received the attention of the soccer community by winning the Golden Ball (MVP) of the tournament.
Lee Kang-in, who broke all kinds of records and drew attention for his performance in international competitions, failed to establish himself in the Valencia first team. He had a lot of talent in attack, especially in the center, but he was mainly used as a side midfielder and couldn’t fit in.
Due to owner Peter Lim’s arbitrary operation of the club, not only Lee Kang-in but also the team suffered great damage, including a series of managerial changes. In the meantime, Lee Kang-in was reduced to a subject of experimentation by coaches, and in the summer of 2021, he needed to secure a non-EU quarter to recruit Marcos Andre (Brazil), the Balenciaga, and even released Lee Kang-in as an FA.
