Former soccer player Nicola Spoli said in an interview with ‘Radio CRC’ after Napoli suffered its first loss of the season against Lazio with a 1-2 score in the third round of the 2023-2024 Italian Serie A season, “Napoli did not use the defense they warned against Lazio. “I couldn’t show it,” he said. On this day, Napoli gave up the first goal to Luis Alberto in the 30th minute of the first half and followed up with an equalizer from Piotr Cielinski in the 2nd minute, but gave up an additional goal to Daichi Gamada in the 7th minute of the second half, ending their winning streak at ‘2 games’.
Spoli, who was coached by Napoli coach Rudi Garcia at AS Roma in 2015, said, “Coach Garcia (who took office this year) is in the process of incorporating new ideas. Patience is needed.” He continued, “Even if Kim Min-jae and (former head coach) Luciano Spalletti remained on the team, Naples would not have won the league like last year. This season, Serie A is a little more balanced.”
Luca Marchetti, a journalist affiliated with ‘Sky’, said on ‘TutomercatoWeb Radio’, “The absence of Kim Min-jae is noticeable. It is especially unfortunate (Kim Min-jae’s absence) given that the director replacement had already occurred three months ago. “We must remember that changes in philosophy lead to changes in philosophy,” he said. Kim Min-jae played in 35 games in Serie A in the 2022-2023 season, supporting the team’s first league championship in 30 years. He became the first Asian player to win the Serie A Defender of the Year award.
‘Il Martino’ journalist Francesco de Corre said in an interview with ‘Radio Kiss Kiss Naples’, “Rahmani’s value has increased thanks to Kim Min-jae’s protection,” and expressed concern about Rahmani’s changed influence after losing his partner Kim Min-jae.
Napoli recruited young Brazilian defender Nathan as a replacement after Kim Min-jae’s transfer, but has not yet been able to utilize him due to the adaptation process. De Core said how and when Nathan is deployed is important.
After moving to Munich, Kim Min-jae started all three Bundesliga games and led the team to three wins.
