Preparing for round 21 of the Bundesliga against leader Leverkusen on the 11th

who completed the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup schedule. 바카라사이트
The Munich club announced on its website on the 7th (local time), “We welcome the return of Kim Min-jae.
Central defender Kim Min-jae returned to Munich from Qatar on Wednesday.”
Munich introduced Kim Min-jae, riding an indoor bicycle and improving his condition through personal training after returning to the training ground,
through its website and social networking service (SNS) accounts.
Kim Min-jae, who participated in this Asian Cup as a key central defender for the Korean national team led by coach Jurgen Klinsmann,
played very well in the group stage and from the 16th to the quarterfinals,
but was unable to play in the semifinals against Jordan due to accumulated warnings.
The national team’s defense, without Kim Min-jae, collapsed helplessly under Jordan’s attack,
and the national team ultimately lost 0-2 and failed to advance to the finals.
Munich is happy to see Kim Min-jae’s return after finishing the Asian Cup.
With Kim Min-jae being selected for the Asian Cup,
Munich hastily recruited Eric Dier in the winter transfer market to fill Kim Min-jae’s shoes.
Fortunately, in the 5 regular league games without Kim Min-jae,
Munich achieved a not bad record with 4 wins and 1 loss, and the return of Kim Min-jae,
who has been playing as the starting central defender, is expected to be of great help in strengthening the defense.
In particular, Munich, second in the regular league, is about to face leader Leverkusen in the 21st round of the Bundesliga in the early morning of the 11th,
Korean time, so Kim Min-jae’s return is bound to be more welcomed.
In a video released on Munich’s SNS, Kim Min-jae said, “I’m back.
See you on Saturday,” raising expectations for the weekend match with Leverkusen.
