Kim Min-jae said that all the positive reviews about himself were thanks to the team’s good performance.
On the 13th (Korean time) at 4 am in San Siro, Milan, Italy, AC Milan and Napoli will play the quarterfinals of the 2022-2023 European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League (UCL). It is the first UCL quarterfinal match Napoli will play in the club’s history.
Kim Min-jae, who established himself as a key defender as soon as he joined, is considered the main player in Napoli’s rise this season. Based on his performance at Napoli, he has become a defender to be watched all over Europe, and is also evaluated as one of the best defenders in the world.
Kim Min-jae thinks that he is highly evaluated thanks to the team. In an interview published on the UEFA official website on the 11th, “The team reached the quarterfinals for the first time in the club’s history, and we are aiming to advance to the semifinals. I am focusing on how to do well and prevent my opponent from scoring. It’s stressful to say that we’re close to winning the league and that we have a chance to win the Champions League, but on the other hand, I’m trying to enjoy it as much as possible. How much we enjoy depends on the results. It’s only because the team is doing well,” he said.
As Kim Min-jae said, Napoli are highly anticipated this season. Italy’s first Serie A title in 33 years is right around the corner. With 9 games remaining, they are 16 points ahead of 2nd place Lazio. In the UCL, there is also a prospect that they can achieve a championship beyond the first quarterfinals. 토토사이트
Rather than thinking about winning, Kim Min-jae is focusing on the task at hand. “Every game is really hard. You shouldn’t even think about the semi-finals yet. First of all, you have to focus on the quarter-finals and treat each game like a final. Scudetto (winning Serie A)? I can’t imagine it,” he said.
Kim Min-jae, who quickly melted into the team, is greatly loved by Napoli fans. A mural of Kim Min-jae also appeared in the city of Naples. In response to a question about the mural, Minjae Kim said, “I haven’t seen it yet, but I’ve received a lot of pictures from my family and friends. It’s a great honor to be highly rated and loved in this city. That’s why I think I have to work harder when I wear the Napoli uniform.” he replied.
