Lee Kang-in (22) was angry with his team, Mallorca, Spain. I did an ‘unfollow’ to cancel the club’s social media follow.
Spanish media Marca said on the 25th (Korean time), “Lee Kang-in is not happy in Mallorca. During the January transfer window, he does not understand the club’s refusal to listen to offers made to him. Despite the keen interest from other clubs, the Mallorca management led by general manager Pablo Ortels informed Kang-in Lee that he would not be allowed to transfer.”
“Neither the Mallorca management nor Javier Aguirre are willing to lose one of their best players. Lee Kang-in scored 2 goals and 4 assists in 1533 minutes, leading the Mallorca attack with Bedat Muriki. The club that wants to recruit Lee Kang-in is in the position that it has to pay a buyout of 7 million euros (22.8 billion won).” 메이저사이트
Spain’s Juanmi Sanchez also posted on social media, “Lee Kang-in is dissatisfied with Mallorca Sports Management. He doesn’t understand that the club rejected two important offers. The club informed Lee Kang-in that he could not leave the team in January.”
Lee Kang-in seems to be angry with the club that is blocking his transfer in the transfer market this winter. Lee Kang-in, who plays a key role in Mallorca’s attack this season, drew attention from European teams by assisting Cho Kyu-sung’s header in the Qatar World Cup against Ghana with a courier cross. Recently, according to Marka, England’s Newcastle United, Aston Villa, Burnley, and Netherlands’ Feyenoord have shown interest in Lee Kang-in.
However, Mallorca is in the position that it cannot be sent unless it is a ‘buyout’, which is the minimum transfer fee that must be paid when another team takes a player for the remainder of the contract period. Lee Kang-in’s contract with Mallorca runs until June 2025.
Marca said Lee Kang-in followed Mallorca’s Instagram and then unfollowed him. Spanish reporter Alberto Cerezo said, “Lee Kang-in has unfollowed the club. He’s behaving like a 13-year-old getting mad at his co-workers. It is not a solution,” he pointed out.
