I asked Dybala, “Trash Kim Min-jae”… Mourinho you can’t forget KIM

 Despite the question from his team’s players, manager Jose Mourinho’s interest was only in Kim Min-jae. 

Italy’s AS Roma, led by coach Mourinho of “Special One,” will face off against Min-jae Kim’s team, Napoli, in the 2022/23 season Italian Serie A round 20 at Stadio Diego Armando Maradona at 4:45 a.m. on the 30th (Korean time).

The two teams that finished the first half schedule are currently ranked first in the league (50 points) and Roma are 6th (37 points), respectively, so it is expected that it will be a fierce match from the first game of the second half. 

Meanwhile, at the press conference held before the game, there was something more talked about than game-related news. It was a story about the past relationship between director Mourinho and Kim Min-jae. 

When asked at a press conference before the game how many Napoli players are on the level of Roma striker Paulo Dybala, Mourinho said, “There are no players at the same level as Dybala, but there are good players. Napoli are great, but “Nobody is at Dybala’s level yet,” he added. “I have something to say about one of the Napoli players.” 온라인카지노

One Napoli player he pointed out was Kim Min-jae. Instead of talking about Dybala, which was mentioned in the question, coach Mourinho mentioned the fact that he tried to recruit Kim Min-jae during Tottenham’s past. 

Coach Mourinho said, “When I was at Tottenham, I had a video call with Min-jae Kim and wanted to recruit Kim Min-jae. But Tottenham didn’t help me. The transfer fee for Kim Min-jae, who was in Beijing at the time, was 10 million euros (about 13.4 billion won), and Tottenham offered 5 million euros (about 6.7 billion won). The recruitment could have been accomplished with 7 million to 8 million euros (approximately 10.7 billion to 12.2 billion won), but Tottenham did not spend the money.” 

“Kim Min-jae also really wanted to come to Tottenham. But he couldn’t come. The ‘rubbish’ player you just mentioned is Kim Min-jae, who is playing for Naples right now,” metaphorically criticizing Tottenham’s eye for not recruiting Kim Min-jae.

After Kim Min-jae failed to transfer to Tottenham at the time, he moved the team to Fenerbahce in the Turkiye League.

As his unrivaled performance continued on the Turkiye stage, Kim Min-jae, who moved to Serie A Napoli, immediately took the starting position and has now grown into one of Europe’s leading defenders. 

At the time, Tottenham paid a transfer fee of 12 million euros (about 16 billion won) for Joe Roden instead of Kim Min-jae and recruited him. Currently, Joe Roden has moved on loan to Stade Rennes in the French league and is not active at all in Tottenham.

While manager Mourinho, who showed off his affection for Son Heung-min during his tenure at Tottenham, expressed regret over the failure to recruit Kim Min-jae in the past ahead of the Napoli match, fans are expected to pay attention to the appearance of the two in the match between Naples and Rome.
