Kim Min-jae talks about why he chose Bayern Munich.
Local media such as Germany’s Bild published an interview with Kim Min-jae, who joined Bayern Munich on Sept. 9 (KST). Kim joined Bayern Munich from Napoli last month with a buyout clause. The midfielder has started the last three games in a row for the Bavarians during the preseason, signaling a breakout season in 2023-24. Kim was heavily linked with a move to Manchester United ahead of this summer’s transfer window, but the Bavarians were able to hijack the deal.
“When I heard that Bayern Munich wanted me, I was really surprised. Bayern Munich is a great symbol of Germany. “The video call with Coach Tuchel was decisive and I was very impressed. Tuchel spoke very positively about me. He knew everything and was very familiar with me and my game.” “Coach Tuchel had a clear plan and was very detailed. It gave me confidence and a sense of security,” he added.
“He played well in Italy with Juventus,” Kim said of fellow defender De Litt, “and when I heard about Bayern Munich’s interest, I immediately thought of him.” “We have a good relationship with him. He is a positive person.”
“As a Bayern Munich player, I have an obligation to focus on the Champions League. 안전놀이터 The club has everything it needs to win,” he said, expressing his desire to win the UEFA Champions League.
Bayern Munich won their 12th consecutive Bundesliga title last season with a dramatic come-from-behind victory in the Bundesliga. The Bavarians have won the UEFA Champions League six times. Kim played a key role in Napoli’s first Serie A title in 33 years last season. After being recognized as the league’s best defender by the Serie A secretariat with the Best Defensive Player award, Kim will continue to challenge for the title at Bayern Munich. Bayern Munich concludes its preseason schedule with a German Super Cup match against Leipzig on Sept. 13. The Bavarians then host Bremen in the Bundesliga opener of the 2023-24 season on Sept. 23.
