    Disgraced Volleyball star Lee Da-yeong led her Greek club PAOK Thessaloniki to a victory in her debut game on Thursday.

    Lee was dropped by the Heungkuk Life Pink Spiders over allegations of past school bullying but made her debut in Greek league A1 Ethniki only four days after she arrived in the European country with her twin sister Lee Jae-yeong last week.

    Lee Da-yeong of PAOK Thessaloniki gives an interview after a game aginst Olympiacos in Greece on Thursday, in this grab from the team's YouTube channel.

    Due to the three-person quota for foreign players, Jae-yeong did not play this time.

    PAOK beat Olympiacos 3-0 in the home match, with Lee Da-yeong orchestrating her team's attack and named most valuable player of the game.

    Greek media said the fast and modern volleyball game she played changed PAOK into a whole different team. It was her first competitive game in eight months.
