Manchester United’s Park Ji-sung was once one of the most influential Korean players in the football world and is currently Tottenham Hotspur striker Son Heung-min. However, the captain of the Rooster is 31 years old this year and only has a few years left to maintain his current top form.
So, discussions have broken out about who will be the next to represent Korea on the world football map?
In an interview with L’Equipe, a reporter from the Korea Herald commented that after the success of Park and Son, Lee Kang-in of Paris Saint-Germain is an excellent player who can represent Korean football.
The PSG player is showing excellent form on the national team as he recently scored and assisted in a 5-0 victory over Singapore in the 2026 World Cup qualifiers in Asia.
Previously, after the win against Indonesia, senior Son Heung-min gave many compliments to his teammates: “Lee Kang-in’s ability is unbelievable. I believe he can develop further.” And we have to help him not be under too much pressure.”
