'Table Tennis Gate' Lee Kang-in Enters the Country with a Bright Smile... Raise your Hand and say Hello to your Fans

Controversy over 'bottom line' due to physical clash with captain Son Heung-min during the Asian Cup

Returning to Korea for a two-game World Cup qualifier with Thailand... Received gifts from fans and went to the national team's dormitory

Lee Kang-in (Paris Saint-Germain), who was at the center of 'Table Tennis Gate', returned to Korea with a bright expression as usual.

Lee Kang-in entered Korean soil through Incheon International Airport on the afternoon of the 19th.

When the arrival hall door opened and Lee Kang-in appeared wearing a light green hoodie and a green cap, several fans cheered and shouted Lee Kang-in's name. 온라인카지노

Although there was a temperature difference from the arrival site of Son Heung-min (Tottenham), where more than 300 fans and reporters gathered the day before, there was also a crowd of about 100 people that day.

Unlike Son Heung-min, who entered the country with a stern expression, Lee Kang-in, who left the arrival hall with a bright expression, stopped for a moment in front of the door and waved both hands in greeting with a smile on his face.

He hurt his finger by confronting Captain Son Heung-min and was pointed out as the culprit behind the collapse of the national team's organizational strength, so he was in a lot of trouble and looked depressed.

Lee Kang-in, who was smiling brightly, received gifts from fans and leisurely left the airport.

Kim Na-yeon (32), a fan who was waiting for Lee Kang-in to enter the country, said, "I was a little upset and disappointed (when the table tennis scandal broke out), but the way I tried to resolve it with the national team seniors afterwards was a comfort to the fans."

“As a fan, I also want to support his decision to apologize,” he said.

He then cheered, “There will be some moments of weakness, but I hope that in the upcoming two-game series against Thailand, he will be able to lead the game according to his usual style and be helpful to the team.”

Lee Kang-in was criticized by soccer fans as he was pointed out as the core of the 'table tennis gate' that protested against his senior and captain Son Heung-min ahead of the semifinals of the 2023 Qatar Asian Cup that ended last month.

At dinner time the day before the semifinal match against Jordan, several young players, including Lee Kang-in, a key member of the national team, played table tennis noisily, and while Son Heung-min was trying to stop them, he physically collided with Lee Kang-in, who attacked him, injuring his finger.

The Korean national team, which had a poor performance against Jordan in the worst atmosphere, was eventually eliminated in the semifinals, and coach Jurgen Klinsmann was dismissed as the national team's head coach due to poor performance and failure to manage the team.

Lee Kang-in bowed his head twice before by posting an apology on his social media (SNS).

Lee Kang-in, who posted his first apology on the 14th of last month, went to London, England a week later and personally apologized to Son Heung-min, saying that he had time to reflect on himself, saying, "Due to my short thinking and careless actions during the last Asian Cup, Heung-min, including his brother, “I have caused great disappointment to the entire team and soccer fans,” he said, expressing his apology again.

Hwang Seon-hong, coach of the under-23 national team, who was deployed as a firefighter, listed Lee Kang-in's name on the roster for the two-game international match against Thailand in March.

Interim coach Hwang Seon-hong supported Lee Kang-in, who had also voiced his exclusion from the national team selection, and said, "This is a problem for all team members.

They must take responsibility."

The national team, led by coach Hwang Seon-hong, is set to face Thailand in the third round of Group C of the 2026 North and Central America World Cup Asia 2nd qualifying round at Seoul World Cup Stadium at 8 p.m. on the 21st.

Then, on the 26th, the fourth game will be held at Rajamangala Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand.

As soon as Lee Kang-in entered the country, he immediately moved to the national team's accommodation in Goyang, Gyeonggi-do, and plans to express his feelings at the Seoul World Cup Stadium before official training on the 20th.
