Prior to the full-scale training, Mallorca players held a welcome ceremony for Lee Kang-in. The World Cup was a ceremony to celebrate the return of a colleague who raised the honor of the team on the big stage. With the players lined up in two rows, Lee Kang-in passed between them. When Lee Kang-in passed by, his colleagues christened ‘Indian Bob’ with all their strength. There was also a colleague who kicked the ass playfully.
