Beetzel "Jimin Kyu, physically strong player"
Antoine Griezmann, the star striker of Spanish professional soccer's Primera Liga side Atletico Madrid, has named Lee Seung-woo (Suwon FC) as the most impressive player in Team K League.
AT Madrid lost 2-3 in the first leg of the Coupang Play Series against Team K League at the Seoul World Cup Stadium on Sunday.
France international Griezmann started and played the first 45 minutes before being substituted.
Although he did not score an offensive point, he looked sharp as he assisted on Toma Lemar's first goal in the 13th minute.
"It was the first game of the preseason and we tried to get our rhythm back and focus on the tactical moves we needed to make," Griezmann said after the game, "It's a shame we didn't get the result, but we'll work harder in the future."
"I'm grateful for the crowd," he added, "It's a game, but it's also a goal to make a good impression on the fans."
The stadium was attended by 58,903 cloud spectators.
The most impressive Team K League player was Lee Seung-woo. "The overall level was high, but the left flanker (Lee) stood out the most and was the most impressive," he said.
Lee started and threatened to hit the side netting for AT Madrid in the first 45 minutes.
"I felt physically prepared in preseason, playing against a good team in the K League All-Stars," said Belgian defensive midfielder Axel Witsel, "and I thought he was a physically strong player against In-Joo Gyu (Ulsan)."
Witsel has had some experience with Asian soccer, playing in the Chinese Professional Football League in 2017-2018.
"I played against Jeonbuk Hyundai at the time, and I think the overall level of Korean players is higher (than in China)," he said.
Meanwhile, 고스톱 AT Madrid will play Manchester City (England) in the second leg of the Coupang Play Series at the same venue on October 30.
