Legendary center back Alessandro Costacurta, who won the UCL 5 times with AC Milan, praised Kim Min-jae.
SSC Napoli, to which Kim Min-jae belongs, won 2-1 against AS Roma in the 20th round of the 2022-2023 Italian Serie A held at Stadio Diego Armando Maradona in Naples, Italy on the 30th (Korean time). Napoli recorded 17 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss, 53 points, widening the gap with 2nd place Inter Milan to 13, moving one step closer to the championship. 메이저사이트
Kim Min-jae started as a center back for the back four and blocked Roma’s attack with one goal by matching his breath with Amir Rahmani.
Costacurta appeared on the Italian Sky Sports program Sky Calcio Club and praised, “I thought Napoli would decline due to Kim Min-jae’s recruitment. But in reality, it seems like I’m watching Kalidou Koulibaly.”
It is Costacurta who built a strong defense with Paolo Maldini and others in AC Milan. He wore the Milan uniform from 1986 to 2007 and won the Italian Serie A 7 times and the European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League 5 times, remaining a Milan legend. As a centre-back, Costacurta’s praise is even more special.
In addition to Kim Min-jae, Costacurta praised Napoli players so that their saliva was dry. Speaking of Osimen,
he said, “He’s a top-five striker in the world. He’s scored a lot and the defenders who stop him can’t do much.”
