Ahead of the match, Bayern Munich coach Thomas Tuchel could not hide his regret for Kim Min-jae.
In a pre-press conference ahead of the match against Cologne, Tuchel said, “This is the second Friday game. Kim Min-jae and Alfonso Davis have just returned from their journey. It’s a very unfortunate schedule, but it shouldn’t be an excuse. I chose a short trip on Friday morning so that the players could sleep at home.”
“I don’t think Kim Min-jae knows where he’s happening now,” he said, explaining the unfortunate situation.
In particular, Bayern Munich has changed its routine when it was playing away matches. Rather than moving on the day before the match, it was moved by chartered plane on the day of the match. It was a way to reduce physical burden.
However, Kim Min-jae also started. 토토사이트
Kim Min-jae started again on the day. He also played for 90 minutes. He already played full-time in 15 consecutive matches in Bayern Munich alone. Considering the schedule of the Korean national team, he is practically overworked. “It’s better to run than run bad,” he said after the match against Singapore, but it is clear that fatigue is accumulating.
Bayern Munich’s lack of center backs is holding back. Ahead of this season, Munich sent out Luka Hernandez and Bangjamain Pavard, while Josip Stanisic also sent him to Leverkusen on loan.
Only Kim Min-jae, Upamecano and Mathias the Licht were central defenders. As Upamecano and The Licht were injured alternately, Kim had to keep defending the rear of Bayern Munich. The Licht is still down with a knee injury.
