Mainz won 4-0 thanks to Jae-Sung Lee, who recorded 1 goal and 1 assist.
Lee Jae-sung has been showing off his outstanding performance lately. Before he knew it, he achieved 10 attack points in 22 Bundesliga games. He recorded 7 goals and 3 assists, surpassing ‘senior’ Ja-cheol Koo’s 9 offensive points (8 goals and 1 assist) in the 2010-11 season.

Mainz also shed light on this record. On the 25th, Mainz raised a thumbs up on the club’s social media, saying, “There is no player who has scored more goals in 2023 than Lee Jae-sung.” Lee Jae-sung scored once against Dortmund, Boum, and Monchengladbach, and scored multiple goals against Augsburg.
Naturally, news related to the renewal of the contract also spread. Germany’s ‘Kicker’ reported, “Lee Jae-sung’s contract period is until June 2024. There are about 1 year and 4 months left. The Mainz board wants to renew the contract with Lee Jae-sung.” In addition, Martin Schmidt, general manager of Mainz, said, “Of course I want to work with a player like Lee Jae-sung. Discussions on renewing the contract are underway.”
