The evaluation of ‘Blue Iron Pillar’ Kim Min-jae (27, Naples) is now completely erasing Kalidou Koulibaly (32, Chelsea). 

Kim Min-jae continued to play as a central defender in the 2022-2023 Italian Serie A round 23 away match against Sassuolo on the 18th (Korean time), playing full-time and helping his team Napoli win 2-0. 

With Kim Min-jae’s solid defense, Napoli was the first to reach 20 wins (2 draws, 1 loss) with 7 consecutive wins in the league, maintaining a 15 point gap with 2nd place Inter Milan (47 points) with 62 points. Another step towards winning Serie A.

Former soccer player expert Daniele Adani appeared on Italy’s ‘Bobo TV’ and mentioned Kim Min-jae, who is showing great success in defense. It was Kim Min-jae, who attracted attention as a replacement for Koulibaly from before the season. However, expectations for Kim Min-jae, who was unknown, were not high. As the season goes on, the true value of Kim Min-jae is exploding. 

Adani said, “I have one thing to say about Kim Min-jae. The biggest difference you can feel after veteran players leave is the position.” Fabian (27, Paris Saint-Germain) and goalkeeper David Ospina (35, Al Nasr) have never heard of either of them being the strongest in the world. But Koulibaly is different.”

He continued, “Coulibaly is known as one of the three strongest center backs in the world. He is right-footed, but he knew how to use his left foot and was capable of set-pieces and finishes.” “he emphasized. It means that Kim Min-jae is filling the gap of Koulibaly, who seemed to be difficult to replace compared to other positions.

In particular, he said, “The interest, performance, and expectations that Min-jae Kim is showing were not considerable. But you could not have imagined that skill, and you had hardly ever seen it.” Your company (28) is moving up to the attacking line. This is possible because I trust Amar Rahmani and Kim Min-jae unbelievably.”

Meanwhile, after the match against Sassuolo, Italy’s Corriere Dello Sport gave Kim Min-jae a rating of 8 points and treated him on the same level as Hvitza Kvarachhelia (22) and Victor Osimen (25), who scored goals that day.  안전놀이터

At the same time, the media called Kim Min-jae “the great wall of Korea” and then said, “I couldn’t pass him at all in a one-on-one, loose ball situation, let alone a header. And Napoli fans chanted his name whenever Kim Min-jae was involved. ‘KIM KIM KIM'”, he explained the stadium atmosphere according to Kim Min-jae’s performance. 

Italy’s ‘Naples Magazine’ also commented on Kim Min-jae as “a wall that cannot be broken and jumped over,” and said, “Kim Min-jae is always there and covers the depth well. He rarely sees opponent strikers and is always calm and confident in the area. It overflows. What a crazy coup after Koulibaly.” 

In addition, he emphasized, “It is never easy or fair to rank and compare, but Kim Min-jae is without a doubt currently a defender in the world’s top 10 in terms of performance.”
