‘Living Legend’ Lee Chang-min (29) set a milestone by participating in 200 league matches for Jeju United.
Lee Chang-min started in the Hana One Q K League 1 2023 round 13 away match against Suwon FC held at Suwon Sports Complex on the 14th (Sun) at 7:00 pm and led to a 5-0 victory. Changmin Lee shone even more with the team. Jeju rose to 3rd place with 5 consecutive wins in the league, and Lee Chang-min took part in a total of 200 matches, including 176 K-League 1 and 24 K-League 2 matches, as part of Jeju.
It is no exaggeration to say that Lee Chang-min, who has been living in Jeju for 8 years, is a living legend. Changmin Lee has been active in the team for the longest time since wearing the Jeju uniform in January 2016. He is gradually approaching the stronghold of Jeju’s all-time player record 1 (Kim Ki-dong 274 games). Lee Chang-min also aspires to set the record for the most appearances by a Jeju player.
Lee Chang-min said, “Now Jeju Island is like my other hometown. Among the current players, I think I played for the longest time in Jeju with (Jung) Woon hyung and (Ahn) Hyeon-beom. As a member of a good team called Jeju, I have achieved a lot of achievements and progress. “I’m proud to have achieved this. If I have a personal goal in the future, I want to break the record of the most appearances for Jeju owned by coach Kim Ki-dong of Pohang. That’s why I am playing earnestly in every game.”
The reason why each match and each match is more precious is that we are about to say goodbye to Jeju for a while. The military duty still remains. Lee Chang-min, who is scheduled to receive an enlistment date sooner or later, said, “Until the day I leave, I will give my all for Jeju and say goodbye to the fans with a smile. Even after leaving, I will of course show a good image. I do not want to return to Jeju in an abandoned state.” he said forcefully.바카라사이트
Sitting or standing, all I can think about is Jeju. 2017 K-League Classic Best 11 Midfielder, 2017 7th EAFF E-1 Championship Men’s National Team and one of the K-League’s best midfielders. Because there is a spirit of ‘Team First’.
“Perhaps the expression ‘a team is better than an individual’ is clichéd,” said Changmin Lee. Captains Jacheol-hyung (former), Oh Kyu-hyung (Kim), Woon-i-hyung (Jeong), Hyeon-beom-i, and (Kim) Dong-joon-i hold the center well, (Seo) Jin-su, (Kim) Bong-su, and other players who will be the future of the team. They are developing rapidly. On top of that, the passionate support of the fans. It is a team that I am really looking forward to. How can it not be everything? (Laughs)” with a smile.
