German football ‘legend’ Lothar Matthäus has spoken out against Bayern Munich (GER) centre-back Kim Min-jae.
“He hasn’t done what we want from him yet,” Mateusz said on Sky Sports Germany on 2 February, adding that “he’s a source of anxiety for Munich”.
“It’s not that we don’t like him or are against him,” Mateusz emphasised, “but he’s still not living up to expectations, considering what he showed in Italy.”
Kim’s club Munich are third in the Bundesliga this season with four wins and two draws from six games.
Despite being at the top of the table, they are conceding one goal per game.
It’s a far cry from the stability expected from Germany’s strongest club.
In particular, in the first leg of the 2023-2024 UEFA Champions League (UCL) Group A match against Manchester United (England) on 21 November, they only managed to win by one goal after a nail-biting game in which the teams exchanged three goals before the end of the match.
In the fourth round against Leverkusen and the sixth round against Leipzig, they conceded two goals each to earn a point.
In Leipzig, Kim was closely followed by Roy Offenda’s explosive run in the 20th minute but was unable to keep out the shot, and six minutes later he was out of sync with his teammates in a chaotic opening and allowed Castello Lukewa a free run.
Mateusz is one of the biggest stars of German football’s 1980s-1990s era as a midfielder and defender.
He also played for Munich from 1984 to 1988 and 1992 to 2000, leading Germany to victory at the 1990 World Cup in Italy and winning the Ballon d’Or that year. 카지노사이트
