A late tag warrior was born in Klins Manho’s 2 consecutive A-matches in Europe in September. The main character is Lee Soon-min (29), a midfielder for Gwangju FC in the professional soccer K League 1.
Lee Soon-min was named in the September European expedition list led by coach Jurgen Klinsmann.
An unknown player with no representative career in that common age group got a chance to work with star players such as Son Heung-min (Tottenham) and Kim Min-jae (Bayern Munich) who are on the European stage.
Born in 1994, Lee Soon-min led Gwangju’s promotion from K-League 2 (2nd division) last year and is also active as a key midfielder in K-League 1 (1st division) this season.
Due to his steady performance, last month he was selected for the K-League All-Star “Team K League” and participated in a friendly match against Atlético Madrid (AT Madrid, Spain) in Coupang and scored the winning goal.
He was also selected for his A national team and is having the best year of his football career, wearing the Taegeuk mark for the first time in his life.메이저사이트
Lee Soon-min is expected to compete with Park Yong-woo (Al-Ain) for the position of defensive midfielder in the national team.
In addition, it is true that it is not easy to get a chance to play as there are other outstanding competitors such as Hwang In-beom (Olympiacos), Lee Dong-gyeong (Ulsan), and Hong Hyeon-seok (Ghent).
However, coach Klinsman expected that Lee’s selection would bring a new change to the national team.
Coach Klinsmann said, “Lee Soon-min is a player who has been consistently active in the K-League. The selection of these new players will be the beginning of a change to achieve the goal of winning the Asian Cup.”
Although it was short, if Lee Soon-min shows his performance in the match against AT Madrid, there is a possibility that he will be competitive in the national team.
In addition, the selection of Lee Soon-min is a stimulus to other players active in the K-League.
Lee Soon-min, also known as a singing soccer player, is a ‘rapper’ who works under the stage name ‘wero’. He drew attention for his hip-hop performance at the K-League Awards Ceremony held at the end of last year.
For Lee Soon-min, who mainly tells his own stories in his songs, the first Taegeuk mark in his life can be a good material.
Through the Gwangju club, Lee Soon-min said, “I’m happy to be able to achieve the honor of being the first Taegeuk mark in a team called Gwangju.” He expressed his determination.
