On Friday night at 21:50 clock it was time: Dong-Jun Lee entered the lawn of the Berlin Olympic Stadium, Herthas Winter Access from Ulsan Hyundai came as a substitute for the Dutch Jurgen Ekkelenkamp. In the inclusive exam time 25 minutes, which the wing sprayer from South Korea stood on the square, you could see what can make him strong, but also that Lee is expected to take some time the acclimatization. In the 68th minute Lee suspected his adversary Danilo Soares with a flashy approach, ten minutes later, the 800,000 euros expensive new in dribbling made a naive ball loss, whose consequences he could only contain with a foul.
Tayfun Korkut practiced in the evaluation of Lees debut in restraint and leniency. “To judge that now is too early from my side,” the Hertha coach emphasized, “you can see that he has speed. And I’m sure he’ll let that flash in the next few weeks, what we saw in it to have.” Corkut had brought the 25-year-old to last Tuesday, although the national player South Korea (four missions so far) had just trained a day before the duel with the Bochumers for the first time with his new colleagues.
But the Hertha coach risked the debut because Lee had “good minutes in training” on his first day and because he wanted to take advantage of the qualities of the fast Asian. “We hoped for a certain depth of him and wanted the way he plays in the game,” Kaskut said. Because the game had become “a switching game” in the 2nd half, Korkut wanted to use the lever Lee and its speed “use the rooms”. Punching effect did not score the 1.73 meter wing floats yet, but “one, two approaches” had seen Korkut by Lee. “Clearly he has to get used to the whole,” the 47-year-old stuck. However, a first step is made.
In the next game in Fürth (Saturday, 3:30 pm, live! On Berlin Olympic) could also be the next probationary sample for Lee. Then Lucas Tousart should be available again. The French midfalker, who, according to cork, had good prospects for good training services against Bochum even good prospects for a starting element, but lacked privacy. At the beginning of the new week, Tousart should return to training.
