About Lee Young-Pyo
Lee Young-Pyo (Korean: 이영표; born 23 April 1977 in Hongcheon) is a South Korean football player, currently playing for Saudi Professional League club Al-Hilal and Korea Republic national football team. He is also known to be a devout Christian, evident as he once said that a greater number of Christians on a team would make it better. Lee is recognized for his speed and dribbling skills. His former manager Martin Jol once called him: "the best left-back in Holland, and one of the best left-backs in Europe today." He has previously played for Tottenham Hotspur, Anyang LG Cheetahs in the Korean K-League and then spent two years with PSV Eindhoven of the Netherlands, earning high acclaim from PSV Coach Guus Hiddink, who had previously coached Lee and South Korea during the 2002 World Cup. Recognized as the best left-back in Holland after the 2004-2005 season, Tottenham signed him amidst heavy competition with several Serie A clubs. He transferred to Tottenham in August 2005. In August 2006, AS Roma of Italy's Serie A tried to sign him, but he backed out at the last minute for "personal reasons." An Italian media report said religion played a part in his decision to reject the transfer offer. On 31 August, 2006, Lee held a press conference in Korea and denied that religion was a factor in his decision. He said that moving to AS Roma would have been great for him in terms of football alone but he decided against it for personal reasons that he would not reveal, despite being pressed for answers by 50 attending reporters. On 19 November 2008, Lee became the seventh Korean player to earn 100 caps in a World Cup qualifier against Saudi Arabia.
