Kim Min-jae performed well, but he is facing criticism because of his strong protest and warning.
Napoli lost 0-1 to AC Milan in the first leg of the 2022-23 European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League (UCL) quarterfinals held at the San Siro Stadium in Milan, Italy on the 13th at 4:00 am (hereinafter referred to as Korean time). . The two teams will play the second leg on the 19th at Stadio Diego Armando Maradona, Napoli’s home stadium.
Having suffered a shocking 4-0 defeat in their recent league match, Napoli came to the San Siro with the determination to show a different side of themselves in the UCL. In particular, Kim Min-jae, who gave up 4 shocking runs, was more determined. In the previous game against Lecce, he showed a good figure, shaking off the national team issues and physical problems, and showing off his strong defense that he had shown throughout the season. So he had higher expectations.스포츠토토
The content of the game was good. Napoli was in charge of the rear while using intense pressure and attacking football that did not think of the back. He continued to win against veteran striker Olivier Giroud. On this day, Kim Min-jae showed his overwhelming competitive ability, succeeding in all 7 out of 7 aerial contest attempts. Even though he conceded a goal to Ismael Bennacher, Kim Min-jae’s defense was excellent.
A situation occurred that devalued Kim Min-jae’s performance. In the 32nd minute of the second half, during a contest with Alex Salemakiers, Kim Min-jae strongly pressed him, and the referee declared a foul. Kim Min-jae, who interpreted it as a legitimate body fight, protested fiercely. The referee gave a yellow card. Kim Min-jae, who received two warnings through the group stage and tournament, added one and was unable to play in the next game.
The match ended in a 0-1 defeat. Victor Osimen’s physical condition is also unknown, Andre-Frank Jambo Angusa was also sent off, and Kim Min-jae is missing. Although there is Joao Jesus, it is true that he is more anxious than Kim Min-jae. Although he performed well, he was criticized for a scene in which he was cautioned after protesting. Italy’s Gazzetta dello Sport said, “I’m going into disciplinary action after receiving a warning for an exaggerated and unnecessary protest,” and gave it a rating of 5.5, which was the worst among the starting defenses.
Italy’s ‘Tuto Napoli’ also said, “I can’t play in the next game. Kim Min-jae, who played a rushing defense, committed a foul and received a warning for extending his arm upwards in protest,” shedding light on being disciplined rather than active. It seemed to come alive in the match against Lecce, but again went into poor evaluation. He is Kim Min-jae, who has not been solved as strangely lately.
