On January 31, 2011, immediately after completing 100 matches for the national team, Park Ji-sung officially announced his retirement from the national team at the ‘early’ age of 29.
The football world has been turned upside down. Fans were also upset. To retire at the age of less than 30, what to do with the World Cup in the future?
But soon everyone understood. He agreed with his explanation that he could no longer play for the national team because of the constantly troubling injury. Park Ji-sung played for the national team for about 11 years, including participating in the 2002, 2006 and 2010 World Cups.
Kim Min-jae, who is becoming a ‘hot potato’ in the European football world, became the national team in 2017. After winning the gold medal at the 2018 Jakarta-Palembang Asian Games, he received military exemption. He participated in the Asian Cup twice and experienced the World Cup once in 2022.
There are still many days to run while wearing the Taegeuk mark.
However, it is shocking that he suddenly suggests retirement from the national team.
After the evaluation match against Uruguay on the 28th, Kim Min-jae said, “I’m just having a hard time right now and I’m in a mentally broken state. I plan to focus only on my team.”
He continued, “It’s hard in terms of soccer and it’s hard on the body, so I want to focus only on my team rather than the national team.”
It meant that it was difficult to digest the national team game any longer.
When asked if it was coordinated with the Korea Football Association, Kim Min-jae said, “I can’t say that it was coordinated. We were talking a little.”
Kim Min-jae is currently playing in Italy’s Serie A Napoli. He has also reached the top of the league and the quarterfinals of the Champions League. Napoli’s propaganda owed a lot to Kim Min-jae’s performance.
Because of this, Kim Min-jae plays full-time in almost every game. His physical burden is bound to be great. In fact, Kim Min-jae has never had a forced march like this season. Therefore, there is some truth in his words that his body is difficult.
However, it is difficult to accept the statement that the convocation of the national team is difficult.
Son Heung-min is 30 years old. He is also struggling, but he is quietly responding to the call to the national team. Son Heung-min is also digesting almost every game at Tottenham.
Kim Min-jae said that it was also difficult mentally. He will be under a lot of pressure to live up to the expectations of his team. 안전놀이터
Here, the recent transfer rumors may distract you from your concentration.
However, this is something everyone goes through.
I wonder why he suddenly made a statement suggesting retirement. If it’s because of an injury, you should take a break.
Are you saying that Kim Min-jae’s physical strength and mental strength are this weak?
