Substitute → Best defender → Championship trophy flashes… Kim Min-jae has nothing more to achieve in Italy
Kim Min-jae leaves the team after achieving everything he can achieve in just one year after joining Napoli.
Napoli played the final round of Serie A for the 2022/23 season against Sampdoria held at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona in Naples, Italy on the 5th (Korean time) and won 2-0 with goals from Victor Osimen and Giovanni Simeone. Napoli, who had already won the championship, finished the season with a victory in their last game.
An awards ceremony was held prior to the game. It was a stage for Kim Min-jae, Osimen, and Hvica Kvarachhelia, who were selected as the best defender, best striker, and MVP this season.
Kim Min-jae applauded with a shy smile in front of the podium, and took a photo after receiving the best defender trophy from Cristiano Giuntoli. The crowd also shouted ‘KIM! KIM! KIM!’ After the trophy photo was taken with Osimen and Kvarachhelia, the three players gathered together to take a group photo.
His debut goal also made a mark after only two games after joining the club. Kim Min-jae built a central defensive line with his best friend Amir Rahmani, and Napoli reached the top of the league for the first time in 33 years, recording the least run in the league.
All of Italy was surprised by Kim Min-jae’s skills. One month after entering Naples, Min-jae Kim was selected as the Serie A Player of the Month, and as his steady performance continued, Min-jae Kim was named the best defender of the season.
Napoli captain Giovanni Di Lorenzo recognized Kim Min-jae as the league’s best defender, surpassing AC Milan’s key left-back Theo Hernandez.
Kim Min-jae was included in this year’s team and won all the awards that individuals could receive. And in the match against Sampdoria, he raised the best defender trophy and the league championship trophy. It was the moment when he reached his peak after a year at Napoli.
It has become a situation where there is nothing more to achieve in Italy.
Now, Kim Min-jae takes on a new challenge. A move away from Napoli this summer is already being considered a strong move. Manchester City, Newcastle United, Paris Saint-Germain, and other top teams in Europe rushed.토토사이트
