‘Europe’s best’, ‘Scudetto’ both NO… Now Kim Min-jae is ‘just humble’

For Kim Min-jae, adjectives such as the best in Europe are not important. The most important thing is the game right in front of you.

Napoli will play the first leg of the 2022/23 season UEFA Champions League quarterfinals against AC Milan at San Siro in Milan, Italy on the 13th (Korean time).

Kim Min-jae, who is active as a key defender in Napoli this season, said in an interview with UEFA on the 11th that his top priority is to focus on the match against Milan.

In response to the question of ‘what is considered one of the best defenders in Europe’, Kim Min-jae said, “We reached the quarterfinals for the first time in the club’s history, and we are aiming to advance to the semifinals. We only focus on how to play better and block the opponent’s attack. He said he doesn’t care about adjectives like ‘best’.

“Others say we’re getting closer to winning the league and possibly winning the Champions League. I feel a lot of pressure, but I’m trying to enjoy it as much as possible. I think I’m considered one of the best defenders in Europe because the team is doing really well. I do it,” he added, thanks to the team’s performance.

After joining Napoli, Kim Min-jae quickly took over as the starting center back. He is evaluated as supporting Napoli’s attacking football by playing solid defense with his best friend Amir Rahmani.

Although he received the lowest rating due to a series of mistakes in the recent league match against Milan, his overall performance so far can be called one of the best defenders in Europe.

However, Kim Min-jae showed the humility to think of the team first rather than worrying about such modifiers.

He also kept quiet about the possibility of winning the Champions League and the league. Kim Min-jae said,토토사이트 “Every game is difficult. You shouldn’t think about the semi-finals yet. First of all, you have to focus on the quarter-finals and treat each game as if it were the final.”

“I can’t even imagine winning the Scudetto (winning Serie A). Many fans come running to take pictures with the players. This shows how excited the city of Naples is. “I will focus on the upcoming games rather than the distant future,” he said.
