Even for Joshua Kimmich (28, Munich), the ‘heart of Munich’, Kim Min-jae’s impact has been enormous.
Kim started the opening match of the 2023-2024 Bundesliga season between Bayern Munich and Werder Bremen at 3:30 a.m. ET on Sept. 19 at the Weserstadion in Bremen, Germany. The Bavarians cruised to a 4-0 victory to start their 12th straight Bundesliga campaign.
The debuts of Harry Kane and Kim Min-Jae also stole the show. Kane lived up to the hype, exploding for a goal and an assist.
Kim Min-jae anchored Munich’s defense in a back four with Alfonso Davies, Dayo Upamecano, and Naby Mazrawi. Kim also contributed to the clean sheet.
His teammates have fallen in love with him, too. Kimmich spoke to the Bundesliga about the addition of Kimmich. “The addition of Harry Kane and Kim has been very helpful,” he said. He is very aggressive in defense. He plays well with the ball.” 온라인카지노
“Kim plays high quality football, especially his passing, which is quick and accurate. She is very fast. She can cover two positions very well.”
Munich coach Thomas Tuchel also expressed his affection for Kim: “I love Kim, he’s calm and straightforward. I like his game. A pass is a pass. It’s not fancy, it’s with the inside foot. The first touch is control and the second touch is passing. It’s precise, not fast, not slow. No bouncing. He creates exactly the buildup I want, so it’s very good,” he said, giving him a thumbs-up.
Teammates and coaches alike praised Kim’s defense and passing skills. The same skills that led Napoli to the Serie A title are proving to be just as effective in the Bundesliga.
