Paris Saint-Germain is trusting Luis Enrique to lead this new project. The capital club is betting on collective talent rather than superstars to be the formula that leads them to UEFA Champions League success. One player that’s coming aboard is Kang-in Lee.
The French giants secured Lee on a €22 million transfer fee from RCD Mallorca this summer. The South Korean international spoke with reporters on Wednesday to discuss what it’s like to work under Enrique.
“I think the players are gradually getting into the football that the manager wants,” Lee said on the sidelines of a PSG open training session at Busan Asiad Stadium in Busan on Wednesday (h/t Korea JoongAng Daily).
“The style of play he wants will show as time goes on. Since this is the preseason, playing the football he wants and showing good cohesion with teammates is more important than the result.”
Additionally, Lee noted how the entire PSG squad, not only Neymar Jr. but the entire squad, has welcomed him with open arms since arriving this summer.
“I am not just close to Neymar but every player,” Lee continued. “They welcomed me the moment I came to the club. I am honored to play with good players on the same team. I will continue to show a better performance.”
Lee will be part of an attacking group that will attempt to replace the production left behind by Lionel Messi and likely Kylian Mbappé. The 22-year-old performed well for the Spanish club and will now look to prove that he’s ready to take this next step in his career.
