Kim Min-jae is expected to make the Italian Serie A Team of the Year unconditionally unless there is a change.
EA Sports FIFA unveiled 45 candidates for the Italian Serie A TOTS (Team Of The Season-TOTS) for the 2022-23 season on its official website on the 16th (Korean time). The media is conducting a vote by selecting candidates for each position. Seven Napoli players who lifted the Serie A trophy for the first time in 33 years since the 1989-90 season were selected.
Along with Victor Osimen, 스포츠토토Hvica Kvarachhelia, Stanislav Robotka, Andre-Frank Jambo Anguisa, Giovanni Di Lorenzo, and Alex Meret, Minjae Kim was named. Kim Min-jae has grown into the best center back in Turkey while boasting overwhelming defensive power at Fenerbahce. He also raised his value by proving his skills on the stage of the European Football Federation (UEFA). Kim Min-jae, who was courted by several teams, went to Naples.
Kim Min-jae, who went as a substitute for Kalidou Koulibaly, was the lead solo player in Serie A for Napoli. Kim Min-jae performed beyond expectations. He also had great defensive power and showed a competitive edge with his overwhelming physicality. His build-up ability was also excellent. He led the rear build-up using transition passes and positioning. It was the reason why the aggressive football promoted by coach Luciano Spalletti could be implemented well.
It was only natural to be nominated for Team of the Year. The center backs competing with Kim Min-jae are Chris Smalling (AS Roma), Giorgio Scalvini (Atalanta), Stefan Foch (Bologna), Alessio Romagnoli (Lazio), Per Schurs (Torino), Federico Basquirotto (Lecce), Glaisson Bremer (Juventus). Two of them will make the Serie A Team of the Year.
It is very likely that Kim Min-jae will be selected. Kim Min-jae is the main player who led Napoli’s team to win the Serie A and the team’s least goals. Smalling, who showed a seasoned defense, Scalvini, who showed potential with Romagnoli, Schurs, who was responsible for Turin’s strong defense, and Bremer, who was responsible for defending silently even when the team was in a difficult situation, of course did well, but compared to Min-jae Kim. doesn’t go
As far as the record goes, it’s overwhelming. According to ‘Squawka’, a soccer statistics media, Kim Min-jae recorded the most ball touches, the most passes in the opponent’s camp, and the most aerial contests. With 3,014 ball touches this season, he recorded the highest number of touches among center backs playing in Italian Serie A. A total of 433 passes sent to the opposing camp rank first.
Ball recovery is a level that corresponds to 4th place with a total of 203 circuits. The success of the aerial ball contest was the highest among center backs with a total of 92 times. Finally, Clearing ranked 4th with 119 circuits. ‘Squawka’ is a nickname that fits Minjae Kim’s ‘monster’.
Assuming that Kim Min-jae has been selected, we have to see who is chosen as the remaining one, namely Kim Min-jae’s partner.
