Kim Min-jae (Napoli), who is called the ‘monster’ of Naples and ‘Bando Dyke’ in Korea, picked the protagonist of the nickname as the player he wants to resemble.
Kim Min-jae attended a press conference before the match against Uruguay at the Paju National Team Training Center (NFC) on the 27th and revealed his role model.
Kim Min-jae is not only evaluated as the best defender in Serie A in the 2022/23 season, but is also raising his name value as one of the best center backs in Europe.
Manager Klinsman also said, “I am proud” of Kim Min-jae’s performance, saying, “It is like a Korean ambassador at Naples. I am having a fantastic experience and I have the possibility of winning the league as well as the UEFA (European Football Federation) Champions League.”
Kim Min-jae said, “(Kim) Young-gwon joined the Century Club and I think it’s great. As a fellow player, you have to be free of injuries and maintain your own abilities. Young-kwon hyung is proud and amazing.”
He said, “My goal (in the national team) is to come to the national team without injury. If I have an injury or cannot maintain my skills, I may not get a chance, so I want to maintain it well. I want to play in the national team as much as my body does.” .
Next, he picked Fair Gil van Dijk (Liverpool) of the Netherlands as the player he wants to emulate. Pan Dijk is a player who has risen to the ranks of world-class center backs after entering Liverpool. Despite his tall height, he is an all-around defender who covers the back space at high speed and has the right to deliver.
Liverpool enjoyed a renaissance by winning the UEFA Champions League runner-up in the 2017/18 season, winning the Champions League in the 2018/19 season, and winning the Premier League in the 2019/20 season with the signing of Van Dijk.
Kim Min-jae, who was once called ‘Bando Dyke’ due to similar characteristics, showed his respect for the world-class center back he met twice in the Champions League group stage this season.
Kim Min-jae said,메이저사이트 “There are a lot of players I played with in Korea, but when I look at the world, I’m watching a lot of Van Dijk’s play and I’m trying to learn a lot.” I want to overcome it well and learn from it.”
