Lee Kang-in is one of the best dribblers in South Korea, Asia, and beyond.
Mallorca defeated Valencia 1-0 in the 36th round of the 2022-23 Spanish La Liga at Estadio Mallorca Son Moix in Mallorca, Spain on Saturday at 2:30 a.m. ET. With the win, Mallorca moved to 47 points and 11th place in the league, while also securing promotion.

Lee didn’t just shine in goal. Throughout the game, he showed off his skills to torment his hometown team, Valencia, especially with his dribbling. In the game, he attempted four dribbles, all of which were successful. Even when Mallorca were stuck in a rhythm, Lee was able to pierce through with his sharp dribbles.
In the second half, Lee’s dribbling skills and success rate are among the best in La Liga. No, the best in Europe. According to soccer statistics site FútbolScore.com, Lee has 86 successful dribbles in this league alone. That puts him second in La Liga, ahead of Samuel Chukwueze (92). Only Vinicius Junior (108) is now above him.
Expanding the scope to Europe’s top five leagues, Lee is third in most successful dribbles. Above Vinicius is Lionel Messi (99) and tied with Jude Bellingham (86).
Another soccer statistics outlet, Couch Score, also took note of Lee’s dribbling prowess. They looked at the five players with the most successful dribbles in Europe’s top five leagues this season, and of course, Lee was one of them. The month-by-month graph clearly shows that Lee’s skills have skyrocketed since the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
What’s even more impressive is his dribbling success rate. As of the last 23 days, Lee’s dribbling success rate this season is a whopping 67%. That’s a far cry from Jeremy Dockoo’s 60%.
With such a high level of individual performance, it’s no surprise that big European clubs are interested in Lee. After being strongly linked with a move to Atletico Madrid, Lee has now been linked with Manchester United.
