The Korean: “Here you don’t conquer the tricolor for a long time. I’m hungry for victories. And I want that if one thinks of a defender…”
Min-Jae Kim is not one to hide, on or off the pitch. So as to release an interview to UpBit, sponsor of Napoli, he has bet heavily on a blue-tinged future that can go even beyond the conquest of the Scudetto. “I have a great desire to win – said the Korean -. Napoli hasn’t won the tricolor for a long time, but we play well and we can do it. Personally, I’m greedy for victories!”.
Here, it is precisely this hunger that is distinguishing the blue group and also the performance of the central defender who has arrived to replace Koulibaly. A feat that is far from simple but which Kim is accomplishing with surprising ease: “The most important thing is to understand what kind of football your coach wants and then quickly put his indications into practice. I think I adapted right away, I think that was my secret.”
Now Napoli is about to write history also thanks to him: “I would like to become that player who – if you think of defenders – my name comes to mind. So that Kim Min-Jae can be remembered.” Important resolutions for a centre-back with a habit of scoring: “Actually, I’d rather not concede than score. I’m a defender, so sure, if you score goals you help the team, but my goal is always to finish the match with a clean sheet.”
