Lee Chung-Yong relishing Wanderers reunion

South Korean international set to line up against Bolton in Emirates FA Cup third round

Lee Chung-Yong is looking forward to facing Wanderers in the Emirates FA Cup on Saturday as he prepares to return to Macron Stadium for the first time since his move to Crystal Palace in February 2015. 

The South Korean international spent five-and-a-half-seasons with the Whites, making 195 appearances and scoring 20 goals, having joined the club from FC Seoul in the summer of 2009.

And having kept a close eye on Bolton's fortunes since departing BL6, the midfielder is relishing the prospect of renewing acquaintances with his former Club.

"I am looking forward to going back to Bolton," Lee told the Croyden Advertiser. "It will be good to go back there and see everyone.

"I am feeling good about it and looking forward to playing at the Macron Stadium again.

"I had good years there and it will be nice to go back there – I still support Bolton Wanderers."

Lee concluded: "I have a lot of nice memories of Bolton. Still, there are some ex-team mates up there. I hope I can play and play well.

"I still follow Bolton and I hope they can come back up to the Championship. I look out for every result and I am happy to see them doing well in League One."
