PSG’s decision with Kang In Lee… to try to avoid 21 months of military service in South Korea!

Kang In Lee is one of the reinforcements that PSG has introduced for the 2023/24 season. But when the club decided to sign him from Mallorca, they already knew that this month of September would be difficult for both parties.

Le Parisien reveals that the French company has loaned the footballer for the Asian Games, which begin next week in China (September 23), with the intention of avoiding 21 months of military service in South Korea.

However, it will not be enough for the talented midfielder to simply take part in this competition with his national team. The only way to avoid military service is to win the tournament.

Just like what happened to him with Heung-min Son in 2018. The Tottenham star couldn’t hold back his tears after lifting the trophy, knowing he was also avoiding the South Korean military. Although he only served for three weeks.

Heung-min Son served in the military for just three weeks after winning the 2018 Asian Games.

Winning gold at the Asian Games or winning an Olympic medal is the only way in South Korea to avoid this national obligation.

Meanwhile, PSG are still waiting for the best version of Kang In. He has barely played two games as an injury prevents him from adding more minutes. In addition, Dembélé’s arrival takes away his notoriety.

Due to his participation in the Asian Games, he will have to miss the second Champions League game against Newcastle (October 4). He was not called up for Friday’s game against Nice in Ligue 1 because he is not yet in optimal condition.

“Lee was scheduled to leave France on Wednesday for Hangzhou, China, to join the national team,” the South Korean Football Association said in a press release, confirming “an agreement” with PSG.
