Naples lost Kim Min-jae, but Milan can’t use it because of an Achilles tendon injury

Napoli lost Kim Min-jae (27), the core of defense, but AC Milan is likely to lose Olivier Giroud (37), the core of attack. 

Napoli will hold the second leg of the 2022-2023 European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League (UCL) quarterfinals at Stadio Diego Armando Maradona in Naples, Italy at 4 am on the 19th (Korean time). 

Napoli lost 0-1 in the first leg of the quarterfinal against AC Milan on the 13th. Because of this, they must win the second round of the quarterfinals to look forward to advancing to the quarterfinals. However, in the first game, Kim Min-jae received a yellow card and Jambo Angusa received a red card and lost two at the same time. 

In particular, it was evaluated that Kim Min-jae received a card for unnecessary gestures in the 32nd minute of the second half. Some said that the referee was not in a situation where he had to show his cards, but the general opinion was that it was a situation where Kim Min-jae should not react sensitively to the judgment. 

This is because of the rule that if you accumulate three warnings between the Champions League group stage and the quarterfinals, you cannot play in the next match. Kim Min-jae was warned once in the group stage against Rangers (Scotland) and in the round of 16 against Frankfurt (Germany), so he could not play in the second leg.  토토사이트

It was a huge loss for Naples. Having lost the first game, they must win the second game, but coach Luciano Spalletti’s Napoli cannot use Kim Min-jae, the center of defense. 

However, on the 17th, Italy’s Gazzetta dello Sport reported the possibility of Giroud’s injury. It is said that Giroud injured his left Achilles in the process of competing with Kim Min-jae during the match against Napoli. 

At the time, when Giroud couldn’t stand up for a while, Kim Min-jae approached and even expressed his intention to apologize. Giroud played the game to the end without being replaced. However, he did not play in the next match, away to Bologna. 

The media explained, “Girou couldn’t complete the team training due to a problem with his left Achilles tendon. It was the result of Kim Min-jae’s foul during the match against Napoli. Giroud gnashed his teeth and remained on the pitch, but the pain was still there.” 

“If Giroud doesn’t play against Napoli, it will be a big blow to Milan,” he said. Because of that, I can become Leviticus,” he added.
