Lee: Second Goal Was My Fault

27 April 2015

Eagles midfielder Chung-yong Lee has admitted that Saturday's defeat to Hull City was "disappointing," but he was pleased on a personal level, having made his debut for the club.

The South Korean international appeared as a second half substitute against the Tigers, replacing Mile Jedinak, and added some creativity and direction to the Palace attack. However, despite his positivity, he was at fault for Hull's second goal, giving away possession on halfway, something he was apologetic about at full-time.

"It's a bad result, a disappointing result," he said.

"The second goal was my fault, so I'm very sorry to everyone."

Lee made his debut for the Eagles on Saturday, despite signing during the winter transfer window, as he finally recovered from a fractured leg. He had featured for the Development side earlier in the week and got some minutes under his belt for the senior team against the Tigers, which was something he was pleased with.

"Everyone welcomed me back to the Premier League and I quite enjoyed it," he added.

Lee also spoke about what Alan Pardew asked of him before bringing him on and discussed his fitness levels in the post-match interview. The full video is available for free at
