Serie A also admired the defense of Kim Min-jae (26, SSC Napoli).
The Italian Serie A posted a protective photo of Kim Min-jae via SNS on the 19th (local time). Added bricks, Taegeukgi emoticons, and the words ‘Wall (il muro) Kim Min-jae!’.
The photo posted by Serie A is Kim Min-jae’s defense scene from the 7th round of Serie A in the 2022-2023 season between Napoli and AC Milan on the 18th. Kim Min-jae preserved the victory by extending Brahim Diaz’s header in extra time in the second half, where Napoli were leading 2-1.
At that time, after Kim Min-jae’s last defense, AC Milan legend and owner Paolo Maldini was captured on the broadcast screen.
Earlier, goalkeeper Alex Merrett also applauded Kim Min-jae by etching a brick emoticon along with a picture of him roaring after his last save on social media. With the addition of Kim Min-jae, Merett only conceded five goals in seven games.
