Lee Kang-in (22, Mallorca) release was also the ‘worst choice’ in the history of the club. Valencia, a prestigious club, is in danger of relegation for the first time in 35 years.
Valencia drew 1-1 with Villarreal in the 33rd round of La Liga in the 2022-2023 season held at Estadio de Mestaya in Valencia, Spain on the morning of the 4th (hereinafter Korean time). With this, Valencia is in 17th place with 34 points (9 wins, 7 draws and 17 losses).
Although they added one point, they are still in danger of relegation. Valencia has the same points as Getafe in 18th place, and is ahead only on goal difference. 19th place Espanyol (31 points), who played one less game, is also chasing closely, so we cannot be relieved.
At the moment of slipping in the remaining five games, the first second division relegation since the last 1986-1987 season could become a reality. Valencia are now back-to-back with Celta Vigo (13th), Real Madrid (3rd), Mallorca (12th), Espanyol (19th) and Real Betis (6th).
As each of them is a difficult opponent to win, the confrontation with Espanyol is expected to be a brink of survival.
It is a snowball made by the worst choice. Spain’s ‘Estadio Deportivo’ said on the 2nd, “Valencia has lost a lot of good players in recent years. The most severe case among them is sending Lee Kang-in while recruiting Marcos Andre in the summer of 2021. Valencia is now trying to survive in the first division. It became a fighting team.”
“Valencia is struggling to avoid relegation,” the media said. “Andre’s recruitment and Lee Kang-in’s departure are the worst player replacements in the club’s history. At the time, Valencia hired Lee Kang-in as a free agent to secure a non-EU (European Union) quota.” I sacrificed him while releasing it,” he added.
Valencia’s bold choice ended in a miserable failure. Lee Kang-in is playing an active role in Mallorca this season with 6 goals and 4 assists while his talents are blossoming. He was also nominated for the La Liga Team of the season. Many teams such as Atletico Madrid, Tottenham Hotspur, Aston Villa, and Newcastle are looking to recruit Lee Kang-in.카지노사이트
On the other hand, Andre is struggling with sluggishness and injuries. His league performance this season is only 1 goal in 17 matches. Estadio Deportivo also compared, “Andre has not stood out, scoring 4 goals in 54 games. However, Lee Kang-in has become a top player in La Liga. Mallorca can get a lot of transfer fees if he sells him to Atletico or Tottenham.”
Of course, as Lee Kang-in, I am grateful. Thanks to Valencia’s free release, he was free to spread his wings in Mallorca. In addition, there is no buy-back clause or cell-on clause (a clause that receives a portion of the transfer fee that occurs later), so there is no obstacle to the next transfer.
The joys and sorrows of Valencia, who made the worst choice, and Lee Kang-in, who is having the best time, are mixed.
