I also met Klinsman… Kim Min-jae, Son Heung-min-Lee Kang-in and complete difficulty, military training scheduled in June
Kim Min-jae (27, Naples) said he wanted to focus on his team after playing the national team game last month. Jurgen Klinsmann, the national team coach, went to Italy and had a meeting with him.
According to Kim Min-jae’s side on the 28th, he plans to enter the training center for basic military training in mid-June. The plan is to complete the three-week basic military training this off-season due to the military service exemption obtained after winning the gold medal at the 2018 Jakarta-Palembang Asian Games.
As a result, it seems that they will have to build a defense without Kim Min-jae in two consecutive matches against Peru on the 16th and El Salvador on the 20th.
In fact, it was foreseeable. Son Heung-min안전놀이터 (Tottenham) and Hwang Hee-chan (Wolverhampton), who had previously won gold medals before Kim Min-jae, also completed military training.
Kim Min-jae was also scheduled to enter the training center in 2019, but considering the fact that it was the early days of former national team coach Paulo Bento, he coordinated the timing to participate in the East Asian Football Federation (EAFF) E-1 Championship (East Asian Cup).
He plays as a key defender for the team that moved to Naples ahead of this season, and is attracting attention from big European clubs. With the possibility of changing the team after this season is over, now is the perfect time to complete the military training that has been postponed.
After receiving basic military training and participating in the sport for 34 months, they can finally replace military service by completing 544 hours of volunteer work.
It may be regrettable that Min-jae Kim is missing from the second call after his appointment, but from the point of view of manager Klinsman, now is not the time. It is difficult to say that the strength of Peru and El Salvador, which will face off this time, is too strong.
In Naples, Italy, the atmosphere is welcoming the news of Kim Min-jae’s military training. Area Napoli said, “Kim Min-jae performs his military service for three weeks from June to July, which overlaps with the buyout period.” It can complicate their understanding.”
However, it can be expected that Kim Min-jae, who is not actively renewing the contract with Napoli, is also preparing for this situation. Since the summer transfer market period is long enough, there may be no major problems if the plan to enter the training center is coordinated or negotiations are conducted through an agent, and the medical test is conducted after Kim Min-jae completes military training.
