If Munich had lost, Kim Min-jae could not avoid responsibility for the defeat, so coach Tuchel also expressed his criticism of Kim Min-jae for the first time.

According to Germany’s largest soccer magazine ‘Kicker’, Tuchel pointed out about Kim Min-jae and Upamecano, “Kim Min-jae had no reason to go one-on-one, and rather than protect Kim Min-jae, Upamecano went out and allowed space.”

Legendary midfielder Matheus played in Munich from 1984 to 1988 and 1992 to 2000, and is a legend who won the Bundesliga seven times.

He also won the 1990 Italian World Cup with the German national team, and played 150 games for the national team, making him one of the most capped players of all time for the German national team. 

During his time in Munich, he was recognized as a central defender as well as a midfielder, and was a player who played the role of libero excellently.

According to a report by the German media ‘Sky Sports Germany’, Matheus criticized Kim Min-jae’s current skills, saying, “Kim Min-jae’s skills are not yet close to what we expected, and he is a factor of uncertainty in Munich.”

He continued, “He needs to get used to the Bundesliga.

I’m not against Kim Min-jae, but considering his achievements in Italy, he hasn’t lived up to the expectations I have for him yet,” he said, without hiding his disappointment with Kim Min-jae, who was Italy’s best defender, in Munich.


Mateus’s criticism is a change of attitude that is even more comparable to the one he had in welcoming Kim Min-jae’s recruitment last June, before his recruitment was confirmed.

Matheus expressed his opinion on Kim Min-jae’s transfer to Munich through his personal column last June.

He said, “Kim Min-jae would be a really good transfer.” He said, “Kim Min-jae is a really good transfer.

He had a fantastic season in Napoli, and he “For that reason alone, he will be a great fit for Munich,” he said, strongly welcoming Kim Min-jae, who will join Munich instead of Lucas Hernández.

Just three months later, Matheus criticized Minjae Kim sharply, causing Minjae Kim to face his first crisis since joining Munich, but he immediately succeeded in quelling criticism and doubts with his skills.

Kim Min-jae, who started the full-time game against Copenhagen and played well as a starter, leading the team to victory, not only showed a fantastic performance in the weekend league match immediately held, leading Munich’s undefeated streak, but also received a standing ovation from the home fans.
