[스포탈코리아] Jae-seong Lee (29, Mainz 05), who scored his debut goal in eight matches in the German Bundesliga 1st Division, showed his joy.

Jae-seong Lee scored the opening goal in the 25th minute of the away match against DSC Arminia Bielefeld at Schko Arena in Bielefeld on the 30th in the 10th round of the German Bundesliga in 2021/2022. Mainz won 2-1 thanks to Lee Jae-seong’s opening goal. Mainz moved up to fifth place.

Lee Jae-seong, who started as an attacking midfielder, calmly connected with his right foot when a shot by Karim Onishiwo from the right side of the goal area hit the opponent’s keeper during a counterattack, and he scored with his right foot. It was Lee Jae-sung’s first goal in the Bundesliga 1st division. Prior to this season, he moved to Mainz from Holstein Kiel to step into the first division of the Bundesliga. His attack points for the season were 1 goal and 1 assist.

Lee Jae-sung said through his agent ‘SJ Sports’, “I am so happy and happy. It was an important game and I am happy to score a goal that will help the team. Above all, I feel even more grateful because not only my family but also many fans seem to be really happy with me.”

Regarding his first goal after 8 matches in the first division, he said, “I think it’s a goal that has a lot of meaning. When I think about the time when I left Jeonbuk Hyundai and came to Europe, I gave up a lot of things at that time. After that, I put a lot of effort to go to the first division, and I am happy that a day like today has come. It was a moment I had been waiting for a long time, so I think it was really good.”

Lee Jae-sung continued, about sprinting close to 60m in a goal situation, saying, “I think I played a role that I should have done in a counterattack situation. I was so lucky that the ball fell in front of me and I was able to score a goal. I felt the reward of running hard for a long distance.”

When asked what his teammates or coach congratulated him on, Jae-sung Lee said, “Actually, before today’s game, my teammates told me that I was going to score a goal, but as my teammates said, we were happy to score a real goal. After the match, everyone congratulated me on my first goal. The manager and coaches also said congratulations, and it was nice to hear that you said that you played well today.”

With this win, Mainz went on to win three straight victories, including cup competitions, and moved up to fifth place in the Bundesliga rankings. Jaeseong Lee said, “I value the opportunity that has come to me. I am grateful to be able to play every game, and every game is important to our team, so we need to prepare well through a week of training. We will do our best so that the fans can see and be happy. Thank you for always supporting me no matter where I am,” he said.
