Since joining FC Barcelona as a child, Seung Woo Lee was considered the great promise of La Masia . His game fell in love with all those who saw him play and in him many hopes were placed.
But Lee is no longer at Barça. At the end of last season the club told him that he did not have him. The sanction of FIFA that had him many months without being able to play, hurt him in a very important way. I could not train with the club. And play, of course, much less. He returned playing in juvenile A as soon as he turned 18, but it cost him a lot to return to the level he had before he stopped playing.
And Lee, like so many others, had to look for his life. Luckily for him, he had several interesting offers on the table and in the end he decided to go to Hellas Verona, a team that has just moved up to Serie A in Italy. There, his adaptation has not been easy . "The Serie A is a very tactical and different to the Spanish championship and I needed some time to adapt," he explained recently in statements to the official website of his club.
He spent many games on the bench, although he was entering the calls of the coach. But he knew how to have patience. He continued to work hard, knowing that his opportunity had to come.
His debut was at the end of September, in the home defeat against Lazio (0-3) , but that debut was followed by many games without playing. And in the last League matches he got his two best moments. First on May 6, when he managed to score his first goal and did nothing more and nothing less than at San Siro and against a great Europe like Milan. And the second joy came to him last weekend when in the match against Udinese he started for the first time.Get your betshoot football predictions.
Hellas Verona will close the league of their new descent to the Serie B Italian this coming weekend with a match against the champion, Juventus. A meeting that Lee could be lost because of some physical discomfort that drag. After the meeting, the former Barça player will pack his bags and travel to South Korea. It is in the list of 26 players that has given the coach for the World Cup in Russia. Lee will be in the two friendlies that the Korean team will play against Honduras and Bosnia-Herzegovina. From there will be the final list for the next World Cup and Seung Woo Lee hopes to be in it.
Seung woo Lee has been very happy this season at Hellas Verona. But the decline of the Italian team can condition the future of the Korean player . Like before signing for Verona, the former Barcelona player has good offers, basically from Germany and Spain. Now his attention is focused on being able to go to the World Cup, but his representative, Pere Guardiola, is already working on those offers and all options are open. You can continue in the Hellas Verona or you can return to pack your bags to find another destination, always in Europe.
