Kim Min-jae (27, Naples), who immediately apologized after the bombshell remarks on the ‘retirement preview’, regained his smile through training with his team.
On the 31st (Korean time), Napoli released a photo of the team training in preparation for the upcoming AC Milan and Italian Serie A home game on the club’s official website.
It also included the training of Kim Min-jae, who quietly departed for Italy the next day (29th) after causing a commotion in his retirement after an evaluation match against Uruguay (Korea lost 1-2) held in Korea on the 28th.
Napoli announced through the post that “Kim Min-jae has returned from his national team mission.”
In the published photo, Kim Min-jae is smiling brightly.
Recently, Kim Min-jae was at the center of the ‘retirement commotion’. After the game against Uruguay, “It is physically difficult. He made a statement that surprised everyone, saying, “For the time being… not for the time being, I plan to focus only on my team. It’s difficult soccer and physically. I want to focus on my team rather than the national team.” It was a suggestive statement. 스포츠토토
After leaving the country, Kim Min-jae bowed his head, saying that his remarks did not mean ‘retirement’.
He said, “The meaning was misrepresented,” and he said it was just to convey the difficult meaning.
He said, “I never took it for granted when I didn’t do my best while playing as a representative player, when I was named on the national team list, or when I started playing in the national team game.” I was feeling a lot of pressure from the situation. As for the story of mental collapse, I wanted to say that the pressure on the pitch, the responsibility to always do well, and the disappointment when I lost a goal as a defender were difficult.”
