Lee Kang-in (22, Mallorca)’s precious No. 4 help flew away.
Mallorca won 1-0 in a home game against Real Valladolid in the 16th round of Spanish La Liga in the 2022-23 season held at Visit Mallorca Estadi in Mallorca, Spain at 2:30 am (Korean time) on the 8th.
It was Lee Kang-in who led Mallorca to victory that day. Mallorca’s attack, which put Lee Kang-in on the bench, was not resolved.
In the 17th minute of the second half, Mallorca coach Javier Aguire replaced Dani Rodriguez and put in Lee Kang-in.
Lee Kang-in stepped on the pitch and showed off his skills. In particular, when Lee Kang-in’s precise kick was put in, Mallorca’s shot came out. The kick in the set piece situation was especially sharp.
The ‘Theatrical Goal’ also started at Lee Kang-in’s toes. Lee Kang-in’s free kick from the right outside the penalty box was headed by Abdon Prats, opening the Valladolid goal. Of course, it was a scene that should have been recorded with the help of Lee Kang-in. 안전놀이터
However, the La Liga Secretariat recognized the help of Pablo Maffeo, not Lee Kang-in. Maffeo was competing to hit Lee Kang-in’s kick to the head in the penalty box. In front of Pratz who scored the winning goal, he jumped high at the moment.
The reason why it was not officially recognized as Lee Kang-in’s help seems to be because it was judged that the kick passed through Maffeo’s head.
Lee Kang-in, who is recording 3 assists, lost the opportunity to compete for the title of help. If the kick against Valladolid was recognized as an assist, Lee Kang-in would rise to a tie for third place in the assist category in La Liga. On top of that, only Mikel Merino (Real Sociedad, 6 assists) and Ousmane Dembele (FC Barcelona, 5 assists) remain. However, due to the decision of the secretariat, which was somewhat difficult to understand, the valuable help record was stolen.
