‘German soccer legend’ Matheus: “Kim Min-jae is a source of anxiety in Munich”
“Considering what I showed in Italy, it still doesn’t meet my expectations.”
Lothar Matheus, a ‘legend’ of German soccer, made a bitter comment towards Kim Min-jae, the unwavering center back of Bayern Munich (Germany).
According to the German version of Sky Sports on the 2nd (Korean time), Matheus pointed out, “Kim Min-jae has not yet done what we wanted from him,” and “Kim Min-jae is a source of instability in Munich.”
Matheus emphasized, “It’s not that I hate or oppose Kim Min-jae,” and then added, “Considering what he showed in Italy, he is still not meeting expectations.”
Kim Min-jae’s team, Munich, is in 3rd place (14 points) with 4 wins and 2 draws in 6 Bundesliga games this season. 토토사이트
Although they are in the top tier, they are only conceding 1 goal per game.
There is some distance from the stable performance expected from ‘Germany’s strongest club’.
In particular, in the first leg of Group A of the 2023-2024 UEFA Champions League (UCL) group stage against Manchester United (England) on the 21st,
they barely won by one goal after a fierce battle,
with three goals being exchanged right before the end of the game.
In the 4th round match against Leverkusen and the 6th round match against Leipzig,
they each conceded 2 goals and only took 1 point.
In the match against Leipzig, Kim Min-jae followed Royce Offenda’s explosive run in the 20th minute of the first half, but was unable to block the shot.
Six minutes later, in a mixed situation at the goal, he did not get along with his teammates and allowed Castello Rückeva to shoot freely.
Matteus is a midfielder and defender who is one of the greatest stars of German soccer in the 1980s and 1990s.
He also played for Munich from 1984 to 1988 and 1992 to 2000,
leading Germany to victory at the 1990 World Cup in Italy, and winning the Ballon d’Or that year.
