Lee Kang-in and his best friend Takefusa Kubo rose side by side.

Kubo is a highly anticipated prospect in Japan. He made his professional debut at FC Tokyo in 2016 and wore the Real shirt in 2019. He immediately gained experience by playing for the second team, Real Castaya. However, he failed to make his first team debut. La Liga’s non-EU policy was a big reason. 먹튀검증

He eventually decided to rent. Kubo gained experience by renting to Mallorca, Villarreal, and Getafe, and also lived on loan in Mallorca. At that time, Kubo played 31 games in all competitions while eating with Lee Kang-in in Mallorca, scoring 2 goals and 3 assists. He wasn’t the mainstay of the team, but he did a great job as a suitable rotation member.

As the season ended, the problem arose again. Kubo has to return to Real Madrid as his contract with Mallorca ends. However, he is unable to play due to La Liga’s non-EU policy. In the end, he was put in a situation where he had to go through a rental life again or promote a transfer to a team where he could play.

Kubo’s choice was a transfer. Kubo took on a new challenge by signing a five-year contract with Real Sociedad. It has been flying high since his transfer. Kubo appeared in 23 La Liga games and scored 5 goals and 5 assists, emerging as a key resource for the team. Sociedad is in fourth place in the league, so it is a situation where it can also aim to advance to the European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League (UCL) next season.

Naturally, the value also increased. On the 23rd (Korean time), the football statistics media ‘TransferMarkt’ updated the ransom of Spanish La Liga players. Kubo’s ransom has risen from 12 million euros (about 16.8 billion won) to 15 million euros (about 21 billion won). Lee Kang-in also recorded 15 million euros, an increase of 3 million euros compared to the last update, and the two players became proud of the same ransom.

The relationship between Lee Kang-in and Kubo is already famous. On Lee Kang-in’s birthday in February, Kubo posted a picture taken together on his personal SNS and wrote “Happy Birthday” in Korean. In addition, he expressed the special relationship between the two players by saying “hermano (brother).”

Meanwhile, the two players faced off against each other in March. At that time, Lee Kang-in started and scored an equalizer in the 5th minute of the second half. Kubo, who started on the bench, was substituted in the 36th minute of the second half and stepped on the ground. Unfortunately, Lee Kang-in was substituted in the 37th minute of the second half and left the ground. In the three head-to-head matches this season (2 La Liga and 1 Copa del Rey), Sociedad dominated with 2 wins and 1 draw.
