Prior to the Jeonbuk Hyundai open training, Seungho Baek greeted coach Luis Enrique and Kangin Lee.
Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) and 스포츠토토 Jeonbuk Hyundai will play the 3rd game of the ‘Coupang Play Series’ at 5 pm on the 3rd at the Busan Asiad Main Stadium. It is the last game of PSG’s pre-season, and Jeonbuk also has a special match in a tight schedule.
The PSG team, which arrived in Korea on the 2nd, the day before the match, immediately began open training at the Busan Asiad Main Stadium. Lee Kang-in also digested part of the training session. Lee Kang-in was injured right before the tour. Because of this, he missed all three games PSG played in Japan. However, according to coach Enrique, Jeonbuk will be given a small chance to play.
During the open training, Lee Kang-in worked on ball rolling (rondo) training and karate switching training. However, he did not participate in shooting drills. He suffered an injury in the hamstring area, so it is judged that he did not overdo it. Lee Kang-in, along with coach Enrique and the coaching staff, watched his teammates practice shooting.
In the midst of this, a scene of a Jeonbuk player approaching Lee Kang-in and coach Enrique was captured. It was Baek Seung-ho. Baek Seung-ho greeted coach Enrique, and Enrique also responded with a bright smile. And Baek Seung-ho, who joined hands with Lee Kang-in, exchanged greetings with his coaching staff and returned to the Jeonbuk team.
Baek Seung-ho and Lee Kang-in are teammates of the national team. Together, they participated in the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. Also, both players have in common that they experienced the Spanish stage at a young age. You can bond naturally.
Also, the scene where he greeted director Enrique with a bright smile was impressive. The two also have a common denominator: Barcelona. Baek Seung-ho was a member of the Barcelona youth team for six years from 2010, and then joined the B team. Although he had a FIFA disciplinary variable in the middle, he had the opportunity to be coached by Enrique during his long-term stay at Barcelona.
Coach Enrique led the Barcelona B team for three years from 2008, and took command of the first team from 2014 to 2017. At this time, he often called up the B team and youth players, and Baek Seung-ho was also the case. In 2015, Spain’s ‘Mundo Deportivo’ reported that “Coach Enrique called up Gumbau and Baek Seung-ho ahead of the match against Eibar.”
Coach Enrique and Baek Seung-ho, who had a relationship in Barcelona, now become PSG command towers and Jeonbuk players, respectively, and will have a different confrontation through this friendly match.
