Kim Minjae is here. Why?
Bayern Munich is pushing for the return of controversial central defender Jerome Boateng. Boateng can’t doubt his ability, but he is the person in question who was tried on charges of assaulting his ex-girlfriend.
Bayern recruited center back Kim Min-jae from Napoli last summer. Nevertheless, concerns about the defense are still visible.
Sports media “The Athletic” reported on the 5th (Korea Standard Time) on “the suspicion of Boateng and why he could return to Bayern.”
The Athletic said, ‘Boateng is training in Bayern. Bayern is considering signing Boateng as a backup center back,’ he said. 스포츠토토탑
Bayern uses four hundred. There are two center backs who play in the game. There are three central defensive agents, including Kim Min-jae, Dayo Upamecano, and Matthias Derricht. It is difficult to play the Bundesliga, Champions League, and DFB-Pokal (FA Cup) with a three-person rotation.
The Athletic said, ‘Dericht was injured and Kim Min-jae and Upamecano suffered physical problems in the past few weeks. It is true that the defensive center is weak. However, the return of Boateng is controversial. He was charged with causing serious physical injury to his ex-girlfriend in 2019. He denied all charges,’ he explained.
Boateng played for Bayern from 2011 to 2021, winning nine Bundesliga titles and two Champions League titles. He also won the 2014 World Cup as a member of the German national team. Before coming to Bayern, he also won the FA Cup for Manchester City in 2011.
Bayern refused to renew their contract in the fall of 2021 when Boateng was put on trial. Boateng was guilty in the first trial, but the ruling was overturned at the appeal trial. As a result, Bayern’s attitude has changed. Bayern coach Thomas Tuchel said, “I am innocent until proven guilty,” implying that there is no obstacle to recruiting Boateng.
The Athletic said, ‘Bayern tried to reinforce the squad at the end of the summer transfer market but failed. There are only three central defenders. Last week’s DFB-Pokal saw Kim Min-jae, Derrycht and Upamecano all miss out, he said, predicting that Bayern will eventually sign Boateng.
