“Kim Min-jae needs to adapt to German football” Munich legend writes… ‘Other players are also a problem’ criticizes entire defense
Germany and Bayern Munich legend Lothar Matthäus (62) had some words for “monster” Kim Min-jae (27). Mateusz didn’t just criticize Kim, but other Munich players as well. It’s a sign that the team as a whole is not defending well.
“He hasn’t done what we expected from him yet,” Mateusz said on Sky Sports Germany on Feb. 2, adding, “He’s a source of anxiety for Munich.” “He needs to get used to the German Bundesliga,” he said. It’s not that I don’t like him, but he hasn’t lived up to my expectations yet.”
Mateusz had expressed his delight at the news of Munich’s pursuit of Kim last summer. “He had a fantastic season with Napoli (Italy) and he’s a good defender for Munich,” Mateus said at the time.
However, he emphasized that Kim Min-jae is a world-class player and has a lot more to show after his disappointing form. It was an affectionate advice for the ‘junior’ Kim Min-jae.
Mateusz is a legend who played for Munich from 1984-1988 and 1992-2000. He is considered one of the greatest players of all time. In 1990, he won the Ballon d’Or, which is awarded to the player with the best performance of the year, and in 1991, he became the first FIFA World Player of the Year.
This season, Kim has been a regular in the starting lineup since his first season with the club, appearing in all six Ligue 1 matches. Munich has four wins and two draws (14 points) and sits in third place in the league. They have conceded six goals in six games, an average of one per game.
That’s not terrible, but it leaves something to be desired for the ‘best in Germany’. If you include the Champions League and cup competitions, Munich has conceded 12 goals in nine games this season.
It’s not just Kim Min-jae who’s struggling defensively. Mateusz also had some disappointing words for other players. “We’ve always had problems at the back,” he said of Munich’s left fullback, Alfonso Davies.
Mateus also took issue with Munich’s center back depth, which has been thinned by the departures of Benjamin Pavard (Inter Milan) and Luca Hernandez (Paris Saint-Germain). Currently, another Munich center back, Matthijs de Ligt, is not fully fit due to injury. Only Kim Min-jae and Dayot Upamecano can be counted on to be reliable. Both players are physically demanding and injury prone.
As a result, Munich have recently been linked with a move for veteran defender Jerome Boateng. Boateng played for Olympique Lyonnais (France) until last season, 온라인카지노 but is now a free agent. The German international also played for Munich from 2011 to 2021.
