Jeonbuk Recruitment of AG Gold Medal CB Lee Jae-ik…Rebuilding Defense + Competitive Start

Jeonbuk Hyundai, which will challenge for the top of the K League 1 again in the 2024 season, has recruited Lee Jae-ik (24), who has evenly experienced on the overseas stage, and has started to reinforce its defense.

According to multiple officials in the transfer market on the 23rd, Jeonbuk has completed the recruitment of Lee Jae-ik, a member of Seoul E-Land and representative of the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games.

Lee Jae-ik, born in 1999, is a central defender who joined Gangwon FC in 2018 after attending Pohang Steel Middle School and Seoul Boyn High School. Attracted by his rare left foot center back resources as a youth, he was often called to the U-20 national team early on.

He participated in the 2019 FIFA U-20 World Cup in Poland, which participated as the U-20 national team led by coach Chung Jung-yong in the summer of 2019, and built a back 3 with Kim Hyun-woo and Lee Ji-sol and helped the national team advance to the final for the first time in history.

He failed to shine in the professional stage from the beginning. He played in only eight matches in Gangwon Province in the 2018 season, and found a place to play in the 2019 season as well. Then, he moved to Alayan, Qatar, based on his performance at the U-20 World Cup that summer, and experienced his first overseas stage.

Lee Jae-ik, who scored his debut goal in Qatar’s league debut, seemed to strengthen his footing as he played as the starting center back for eight consecutive games. However, he sat out for a long time due to injury in October that year, and his playing time sharply decreased due to competition.

In the summer of 2020, Lee Jae-ik made the European stage, leaving for Royal Antwerp, a prestigious Belgian team, on loan. However, he had to return to Qatar the following summer of 2021, without playing a single game due to the aftermath of his injury in Qatar.

Chung Jung-yong reached out to Lee Jae-ik again and officially transferred to Seoul E-Land in June of that year. The contract period at that time was two and a half years, which was until this year.

Lee Jae-ik played 65 games and scored one goal for Seoul E-Land from summer 2021 to 2023. He continued to play more than 1,000 minutes for three seasons to boost his performance. 월카지노

Lee Jae-ik participated in the Hangzhou Asian Games in September this season. He participated in the Asian Games as vice-captain along with captain Baek Seung-ho, and scored his team’s fourth goal in the second group match against Thailand. He started only against Thailand and won the Asian Games gold medal, earning exemption from mandatory military service.

In addition, Lee Jae-ik was selected as a member of the East Asian Cup (E-1 Championship) in July last year, where the Korean national soccer team led by head coach Paulo Bento participated, and made his dream A match debut as a starter against Hong Kong.
