Kim Min-jae Bayern Munich, a leading defender of the Korean national soccer team, has recently lost his chance to play in the competition to become a starting member of his team. If Kim Min-jae, the core of the defense line, stays on the bench for three consecutive games ahead of the A-match in March, it will also be a negative factor for Hwang Sun-hong.

Bayern Munich will play against Darmstadt in the 26th round of the German Bundesliga in the 2023-24 season at 11:30 p.m. on the 16th.

This match will be the last match that will be held before the A-match break in March. Munich 57 points, which is ranking second, will face Darmstadt 13 points, which is 18th, while being 10 points behind Leverkusen 67 points, which is currently leading the league. As Munich has been leading in objective performance, it must win the match.

What draws attention is whether Kim Min-jae will start or not.

Kim Min-jae, who led Napoli Italy to Serie A title in the 2022-23 season, changed his outfit to Bayern Munich ahead of this season. Even after the change of the stage, he continued strides by guarding the back of his team as a built-in center back.

However, the mood has changed since joining the 2023 Asian Football Confederation AFC Asian Cup. Erik Dier, who joined through the winter transfer window, is trusted by Munich coach Thomas Tuchel.

Dyer was initially thought to be a backup to Kim Min-jae, Matthijs Dericht and Dayo Upamecano, but has recently led the defense as a starting center back.

From Kim Min-jae’s point of view, it is a bit embarrassing. Tuchel placed Kim Min-jae on the bench in the second leg 3-0 win of the round of 16 of the UEFA Champions League against Lazio on the 6th and excluded him from the starting list for two consecutive games.

Coincidentally, Munich performed well in its two matches without Kim Min-jae. It had a complete 3-0 victory over Lazio and won 8-1 at home against Mainz on Saturday. Kim Min-jae stepped on the ground as a substitute in the second half of the match against Mainz 8-1 win, but his absence from the starting lineup itself was not a familiar sight.

Coach Tuchel said, “From Kim Min-jae’s point of view, it is really difficult to exclude the starting player,” adding, “He deserves to play and is very good.” However, the head coach is expressing satisfaction with the new defensive combination Diar-Dericht.

It was the first time in March that Kim Min-jae was excluded from the starting list other than injury or transfer to the national team after joining Munich. Local media also say that Kim Min-jae is not very good.

Kicker, a German soccer magazine, removed Kim Min-jae’s name in anticipation of his selection for the match against Darmstadt. Kim Min-jae was not included in the list of German Bundesliga and Sports Mall.

Germany’s Bild recently said that Kim Min-jae, a 50-million-euro man, is no longer functioning. He is the new loser under Tuchel’s leadership.” The German media outlet also said that Tuchel has found a new central defender combination by using Dericht and Dier. Both are playing well.

Kim Min-jae, who became a “man in crisis” on his team, will board a flight to Korea immediately after the match against Darmstadt. 안전놀이터 추천
