Napoli player Kim Min-jae contributed to the team's 4-game winning streak with a solid defense against AS Roma.

Even enemy captain Mourinho praised him.

<Reporter> Kim Min-

jae faced a dizzying moment in the 12th minute of the first half.

During an aerial duel, the ball headed backwards almost turned into an own goal, but fortunately it went just wide of the post.

He has been impeccable ever since.

He kicked the ball 9 times, the most among both teams, blocked shots without sacrificing himself, and effectively blocked Roma's 'three-top', including world-class striker Dybala.

In the 18th minute of the second half, he participated in a counterattack with explosive speed.

As soon as he cut off the ball in the defensive area, he rushed to the opponent's half without hesitation, but it was regrettable that his teammate Rossano chose to shoot instead of pass.

Napoli won 2-1 with goals from Osimen and Simeone to run a 4-game winning streak, sprinting to an overwhelming lead with a 13-point lead.

AS Roma coach Mourinho, who revealed that he tried to recruit Kim Min-jae during the Tottenham command tower, once again highly praised Kim Min-jae's ability.

[Mourinho/AS Roma coach: (Napoli's central defender) Both of them are strong, fast and excellent, especially Kim Min-jae is a fantastic player.] This is

a scene from Dutch professional football.

The goalkeeper, who emptied the goal and blocked the counterattack, throws the ball to the ground.

This is to give the opponent time to return to the goal before they attack.
