Kim Min-jae (27, SSC Napoli) now focuses on winning the Scudetto (Serie A championship).
Italy’s ‘Il Martino’ said on the 20th (Korean time), “Kim Min-jae made me forget Kalidou Koulibaly in just one season.” It will be,” he hoped.
With 75 points (24 wins, 3 draws, 3 losses), Napoli is on the verge of winning this season. With 8 games left, they are 14 points behind second place Lazio (61 points). It means that even if there are only 3 wins and 2 draws in the remaining games, it is possible to win on their own. 온라인카지노
Napoli will go to Juventus on the 24th. Juventus received a 15-point reduction after being found to have cheated in accounting during the player transfer process. But still, Juventus is Juventus.
It is no exaggeration to say that if they win against Juventus, Napoli’s championship is virtually solidified. Beyond Juventus, Napoli will take on Salernitana (15th), Udinese (12th), Fiorentina (9th), Monza (13th), Inter Milan (5th) and Sampdoria (20th) in turn. Except for Inter Milan, all of them are mid-level teams.
Conversely, if we lose against Juventus, the situation may change. Napoli, which was knocked out of the quarterfinals of the Champions League after losing to AC Milan, is unable to operate the best 11 coach Luciano Spalletti wants as injuries continue to rise. It means that the remaining 7 games can be difficult.
In that respect, Napoli is welcoming Kim Min-jae’s return. This is because Kim Min-jae, although he missed the Champions League quarterfinal second leg due to card accumulation, did not help the team, but he can play in the remaining league matches without any problems.
The media is also expecting Kim Min-jae to lead Napoli’s defense again. Moreover, I remembered the scene where Koulibaly scored a dramatic winning goal in extra time in the second half against Juventus five years ago, giving Napoli a 1-0 victory.
Compared to Koulibaly scoring such a wonderful goal against Italy’s top club five years ago and finishing runner-up, Kim Min-jae is closer to winning the championship, so it would be better if he scored a goal. This is the reason why the media emphasized that “Kim Min-jae will play the role of Koulibaly in the match against Juventus, but the epilogue will be different.”
In an interview with Italy’s ‘La Repubblica’ in October of last year, Kim Min-jae said that Juventus is a team he absolutely wants to defeat because “the people of Naples don’t like Juventus.” If Kim Min-jae surpasses Juventus, the opportunity to lift the club trophy, which even Son Heung-min (31, Tottenham) could not do in the first season, will unfold before his eyes.
