Neymar (31) and Lee Kang-in (22) promised their next meeting.
Neymar left Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) on the 16th (Korean time) and confirmed the transfer of Al-Hilal to Saudi Arabia. At the same time as the opening of the 2023-24 season, Neymar will leave PSG. It is a pity for Lee Kang-in, who joined PSG ahead of this season.
On the 16th, Neymar responded to Lee Kang-in’s farewell through his social media (SNS). Neymar: “See you later. Son,” he greeted. An airplane selfie taken by the two with a bright expression was also attached.
Neymar and Lee Kang-in have played together at PSG for the past two months. Although it wasn’t a regular season, he stuck around throughout the preseason. They were together on the plane leaving for the pre-season tour in Japan, and they were also close when taking a group photo after getting off the plane.
Neymar and Lee Kang-in were together when the PSG players went on tour to Osaka Castle. Also, when they had a fan signing event in Tokyo, Japan, when they were traveling by bus, or when they were on the bench because they couldn’t compete, they sat right next to each other.
They came to Korea together at the beginning of this month. It was the first match in the third game of the Coupang Play Series between PSG and Jeonbuk Hyundai held at the Busan Asiad Main Stadium. Neymar played full-time and scored two goals, and Lee Kang-in was substituted in the second half. Neymar scored the second goal and hugged Lee Kang-in.
Neymar also gave Lee Kang-in a new nickname. He saw Lee Kang-in and called him ‘Kanginho’. In Brazilian culture, adding ‘inu’ to the end of a name means ‘small’ or ‘cute’. A representative example is the name change to Ronaldinho because it overlaps with Ronaldo.메이저사이트
In this way, Neymar and Lee Kang-in built a short and thick friendship. With the opening of the new season, expectations for the two’s bromance grew, but they could no longer be seen running together. It is known that Neymar will receive a total of 300 million dollars (about 400 billion won) for a two-year contract with Al Hilal of Saudi Arabia.
