◆ Munich Overcomes 1-5 Defeat, ‘Monster’ Kim Min-jae Returns
Munich has been steadily rising in the Bundesliga, but suffered its first league defeat against Frankfurt in the previous round. As the 13th round of the league against Union Berlin, scheduled for the 2nd, was postponed, Munich suddenly had a 10-day gap and focused only on training.
Perhaps due to lack of sense of play, however, Munich ended up ruining its away game in Frankfurt. Kim Min-jae, who was successfully spending his debut season in the Bundesliga, also made a series of mistakes in the game, providing an excuse for him to lose a point.
In the match against Frankfurt, Kim Min-jae ran to block a long pass from the back in the 30th minute. Kim Min-jae was pushed back in the contest against his opponent Ansgar Knauf. Knauf connected to Erik Dina Evimbe, who advanced into the box and scored his second goal.
As the score was a crushing defeat, all of Munich’s players couldn’t avoid harsh criticism. Notably, the defense line that allowed five runs received a lot of criticism. “Bild,” a leading German newspaper, gave six points, the lowest score that it can give to all four starting defense lineups including Kim Min-jae, Upamecano, Mazraoui and Alfonso Davis.
Leaving behind the nightmarish game, Munich succeeded in turning the mood around by winning the final UEFA Champions League group match against Manchester United 1-0. After Manchester United went down defensively, they threatened by attempting a counterattack, but Kim Min-jae came back to his normal form and blocked Manchester United’s attackers. Kingsley Coman scored the winning goal in the 25th minute of the second half, eliminating Manchester United from the group stage.
Munich won 3-0 in the 15th round of the Bundesliga against Stuttgart in the 2023/24 season at the Allianz Arena in Munich, Germany, and won its second consecutive official match.
Kim Min-jae scored one goal as he played full-time on the day and scored his Bundesliga debut goal. As Joshua Kimmich and Leon Goretzka missed the match just before the match due to cold symptoms, Rafael Geheiro and Aleksandar Pavlovic were in the midfield.
The combination of the two players was more stable in terms of offense and defense than expected. Kim Min-jae also displayed comfortable play, as if he did not feel more burdened by defense than before. Pavlovic’s kicking ability drew attention as he was involved in both the second and third goals.
More than anything, however, Kim Min-jae was the hero of the match. Kim Min-jae made his debut goal in the last game of his team’s first half of the year, impressing Munich fans. On the day, he received an 8.6 rating based on PotMob, a statistics company for soccer. He also played well in both areas of offense and defense, including a successful pass rate of 93 percent (39/42), one successful dribble, one accurate long pass, one successful tackle, one blocking, six clearing headers, and six interceptions.
The Munich club was also impressed by Kim’s performance. The club’s English account praised Kim, who scored his debut goal and contributed to his debut.
“He was already very good at Old Trafford (Manchester United home ground) along with Dayo Upamecano,” coach Thomas Tuchel said after the match. “Both of them were very strong on the day. They showed excellent physical and concentration.”
Munich introduced Kim’s performance under the sub-title “The Monster,” through its official review. “He was very determined in the competition. He was a pillar who helped his teammates as a leader. He was very dangerous and aggressive,” the club said.
“In the first half, Kim Min-jae’s header was canceled due to offside, but The Monster made it 3-0 with a header in the 18th minute of the second half and reported his first goal in 21 official matches for Munich,” he added.
Kim Min-jae played full-time in the match, helping his team win 3-0, and especially displayed influence in offense with his debut goal. He started all 15 Bundesliga games this season and is playing full-time in all games except for the first and second rounds. He has recorded the most clean sheets (no goals lost) in this season.
Kicker was effectively named MVP of the game, as he scored higher on Kim Min-jae than Kane (1.5), who scored multiple goals. Bild gave Kim and Kane one point at the same time.
This is not the end. Both media selected Kim Min-jae as the team of the week in the 15th round of the Bundesliga. Bild selected Kim Min-jae and Kane together. This is the first time Bild has put Kim Min-jae in the team of the week.
The kicker named Kim Min-jae and Pavlovic as the team of the week. Kim Min-jae said, “This is the second team of the week to be selected, and Pavlovic is the first team to be selected.
Other German media Sport 1 also focused on Kim Min-jae’s performance, saying, “Monster has been revived.”
Sporting the title “Is Bayern’s monster finally waking up?” Sport 1 said, “Munich’s defense has been criticized repeatedly in recent weeks. Kim Min-jae, who moved from Napoli for a transfer fee of 50 million euros (about 71.3 billion won), was also the target.”
