Monster Kim Min-jae
Bayern Munich’s Kim Min-jae is in a fierce competition for the ball against Stuttgart on the 18th.
“Korean Monster” Kim Min-jae (Bayern Munich) expressed his feelings about scoring his first goal on the German stage.
“Kim Min-jae talked about the joys and sorrows of his first goal in Munich.”
“I’ve been waiting for a long time for the day when I score my first goal for Bayern. That’s my job as a defender. When a defender scores a goal, the whole team becomes much easier. Actually, I wanted to score much earlier. I’m glad that the goal is finally scored,” Kim said with a smile.
Kim Min-jae scored his first goal of the season in the 15th round of the 2023-24 German Bundesliga between Munich and Stuttgart on the 18th. Kim Min-jae, who started as a center back, ran into the gate and connected Aleksandar Pavlovic’s corner kick in the 18th minute of the second half with a header, and tasted the goal as the ball hit the defender and was sucked into the goal. The first goal he scored in his 21st game in a Munich uniform.

Kim Min-jae scored his first goal in five months and led the team to victory, but he was worried that his first goal could be canceled. This is because there was a possibility that the ball would be recorded as an own goal as it hit the opponent’s defender and went into the goal.
Kim Min-jae, who recalled that time, said, “I was very happy and sad. I was a little worried that it would be recognized as an own goal.”
