German Bundesliga defender Kim Min-jae of Bayern Munich has set another record.
Kim is considered one of the best center backs in the world today. The 2023 Ballon d’Or proved it. Kim finished 22nd, the highest ranked center back in the world. Last season, he helped lead Napoli to their first title in 33 years in the Italian Serie A. He also won the Serie A’s best defense award. After moving to Bayern Munich this season, he has remained a regular center back. The 22nd Ballon d’Or awarded him.
And now he’s done it again, perhaps even better than 22nd place in the Ballon d’Or. Kim Min-jae tops five European leagues. With 430 forward passes, Kim ranked first in all five European leagues. This is Kim Min-jae, the ‘passing king’.
“Kim Min-jae ranked first in all five European leagues in the 2023-24 season with 430 forward passes,” statistical outlet Huscore.com reported on March 13 (KST).
In response, Turkiye’s ‘Ajansspor’ reported, “Kim Min-jae is the number one in Europe. Kim Min-jae, who once played for Fenerbahçe in Korea and now plays for Bayern Munich, has reached the top of Europe. He completed 430 forward passes. That’s the most in Europe’s top five leagues.” 아톰카지노 주소
“He played 17 games for Bayern Munich this season, totaling 1365 minutes,” the publication continued. He is a successful defender who played for Fenerbahçe. He rose to prominence there. He went on to win the Italian Serie A title and then moved to Bayern Munich in a €50 million ($70.7 billion) transfer,” he said, showing his affection for the former Fenerbahçe player.
This isn’t the only time Kim has made waves with his passing. This season, Kim has consistently drawn attention for his passing ability in the Bundesliga.
In a Bundesliga match against Freiburg in the 7th round last month, Kim attempted 181 passes and completed 171 of them. His 171 successful passes were the most in the Bundesliga this season, and the most since Aleksandr Dragovic of Leverkusen made 178 in 2019.
On March 22, against Mainz in the eighth round of the Bundesliga, Kim completed 102 passes, with 102 successful. He impressed once again with a 100% pass completion rate.
