It seems that Lee Kang-in’s team, Mallorca’s coach Javier Aguirre, who is playing in the Spanish professional football La Liga, wanted to avoid the sun.
Mallorca lost 0-1 to Real Betis in the 26th온라인바카라 round of La Liga 2022-2023 held at Benito Villamarin in Seville, Spain on the 19th.
In an interview after the game, coach Aguirre sarcastically said, “I would like to thank the La Liga Secretariat for allowing us to play 9 matches in the heat at 2pm.” At the same time, director Aguirre added, “I hope that Koreans will not turn off their TVs and watch Lee Kang-in.”
The background of coach Aguirre’s absurd statement lies in the fact that Mallorca recently played matches between 1 and 2 p.m. local time to target the Asian soccer market. The La Liga Secretariat adjusted the schedule for Asian soccer fans who find it difficult to watch early morning matches.
As a result, Mallorca had to frequently play during the day when the sun was the hottest. Then, coach Aguirre attributed the defeat to the game time, saying that playing during the hours with strong sunlight was hard for the players.
Mallorca is seeing the ‘Lee Kang-in effect’, which has risen in popularity through the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar following his performance in La Liga this season, but the club and La Liga The secretariat has come to notice the Asian market, including Korea.
