Bolton winger Lee proud South Korean players making mark in England

Bolton Wanderers winger Chung Yong-lee feels South Korean football is enjoying a golden era with so many of his countrymen playing in the Premier League.

The success of Lee and Manchester United’s Ji-Sung Park in the Premier League has seen other clubs follow suit with Arsenal recruiting Park Chu-Young and Sunderland signing Dong-Won Ji.

And the Wanderers wideman, back in Seoul continuing his recovery, is confident his fellow Koreans can also prosper.

He said: “Korean players are strong mentally so, wherever they go, they will succeed. I expect them all to do well.”
