Defender of 100 billion won behind Kim Min-jae… “It’s terrible” explosion of complaints

Bayern Munich star defender Matthias Delicht, who was pushed out as a candidate this season with the arrival of Kim Min-jae (26), expressed his dissatisfaction with his current situation.

After the game against Bayer 04 Leverkusen in the 4th round of the 2023-24 German Bundesliga season held at the Allianz Arena in Munich, Germany on the 16th (Korean time), he expressed his dissatisfaction with his playing time.

De Ligt, who met reporters in the common reporting area, said, “What can I say? I haven’t played much in the last four games. It’s terrible. Of course, I always want to play.”

De Ligt was brought on as a substitute in the 40th minute of the second half of this game. In addition, since Kim Min-jae and Upamecano were positioned at central defender, he played as a defensive midfielder rather than the usual central defender.메이저놀이터

De Ligt, who plays for the Netherlands national team, left Juventus for a transfer fee of 75 million euros (about 106 billion won) ahead of last season and joined Bayern Munich.

From the first year of his transfer, he appeared in 31 Bundesliga games and led Bayern Munich to the top.

When Bayern Munich recruited Kim Min-jae, international media, including Germany, all predicted that De Licht would play the starting central defender role with Kim Min-jae, and related questions poured in to De Licht. De Licht praised, “I communicate with Kim Min-jae in English, and we communicate well. We understand each other well. Kim Min-jae is an amazing and talented defender.”

However, contrary to expectations, Coach Tuchel chose Upamecano, not De Ligt, as Kim Min-jae’s partner. Upamecano, who was expected to be pushed out as a backup, started all four Bundesliga games along with Kim Min-jae. Upamecano captivated coach Tuchel by playing in all pre-season games. De Ligt’s playing time in 4 games was only 38 minutes.

When asked if coach Tuchel had given any explanation as to why De Ligt was pushed to the backup role, De Ligt briefly replied, “I haven’t explained it yet.”

De Ligt is a world-class defender who has all the abilities required as a defender, including tackling, positioning, and controlling the air, and is evaluated as having excellent build-up skills required in modern soccer. However, his somewhat slow feet are considered his only weakness. On the other hand, newly joined Kim Min-jae and existing defender Upamecano boast as much speed as attackers. This is the driving force that allows Coach Tuchel to raise the defensive line high while accepting the threat of back space.

Coincidentally, in conjunction with De Ligt’s dissatisfaction, the possibility of Bayern Munich recruiting a new defender is emerging. The British newspaper The Sun reported today that coach Tuchel will attempt to recruit Chelsea defender Trevor Chalobah when the winter transfer window opens in January. Coach Tuchel used Chalobah during his time as Chelsea manager in the 2021-22 season.
