Lee Dong-jun, who plays for Hertha Berlin in the German Bundesliga, is expected to return to Korea.
On the 19th (Korean time), German soccer media Puswaltransfer said, “Lee Dong-jun is about to transfer to Jeonbuk in the K-League 1.” There is no difference from the amount we paid when we recruited him.”
Lee Dong-jun moved to Hertha in January and succeeded in advancing to Europe. However, he only appeared in 4 matches after the transfer. In February, he was diagnosed with the new coronavirus infection (Corona 19) and lived in isolation. Lee Dong-jun, who played after recovering from Corona 19, suffered a knee injury during training with his team in April and was unable to digest the rest of the season. 스포츠토토
Lee Dong-jun has since focused on recovery and rehabilitation and joined the preseason ahead of the 2022-23 season. However, he suffered an unexpected injury during a practice game, which hindered his preparation for the season. In the end, Lee Dong-jun could not play in a single game this season. As a result, his participation in the World Cup in Qatar was also canceled, and it is known that he wants to return to Korea.
For Lee Dong-jun, his military service has not been resolved. Therefore, in order to receive benefits, good grades in the Asian Games are required, and for this, steady participation is required. In fact, the media explained the background of Lee Dong-jun’s transfer, saying, “Hertha wanted Lee Dong-jun to participate in the Asian Games scheduled to be held this year and receive military service benefits.”
