The friendly match between Team K-League and Atletico will take place at the Seoul World Cup Stadium on April 27 at 8 p.m. KST. For the match, Team K-League has selected a total of 22 players, including the Fan Eleven, who were voted on by fans, and the Pick Eleven, who were selected by head coach Hong Myung-bo and coach Choi Won-kwon.
The team includes both domestic players and foreign players representing the K League. In addition, there are several promising players who will show their skills for Atletico. Bae Jun-ho (Daejeon Hana Citizen), who was a key player in the U-20 World Cup quarterfinals, and Hwang Jae-won (Daegu FC), who is competing in the Hangzhou Asian Games, are prominent resources.
In addition, Lee Seung-woo (Suwon FC) and Baek Seung-ho (Jeonbuk Hyundai), who are gaining a foothold domestically in their quest to return to Europe, and Na Sang-ho (FC Seoul), who has declared his intention to play in Europe, are other motivating factors for Atletico.
Simeone is no stranger to Korean players. This summer, he was linked with a move for Lee Kang-in. “There were rumors that we were interested in Lee Kang-in, but in the end, he signed with Paris Saint-Germain,” he said at a press conference before the match against Team K League on the 26th, adding, “Korean football is growing and being recognized.”

Another Korean player could be on the way. “We’ll have a good look at the players tomorrow,” Simeone said. Simeone doesn’t want to waste the friendly against Team K League.
“Our first training in Korea was focused on jet lag,” Simeone said. We have some young players up there. “I want to share my enthusiasm with the fans who will come to the stadium, and I know Team K League coach Hong Myung-bo is a good coach, so I’m looking forward to it,” he promised.
