There is a growing possibility that ‘Iron Pillar’ Kim Min-jae (Naples) will not be able to respond to the A-match call in June due to the basic military training schedule.
The Korea Football Association and coach Jurgen Klinsmann are in the position that the A-match absence is not confirmed, but that it can be fully coordinated, but there is a need to consider alternatives to him.
An official from Kim Min-jae’s agency said on the same day, “There is nothing set yet as the relevant agency has not notified a specific date yet.” Kim Min-jae received military service benefits while winning the gold medal at the 2018 Jakarta-Palembang Asian Games.
If you win a gold medal in the Asian Games, you will serve as an art and sports personnel. After receiving basic military training, they must complete 544 hours of volunteer work while immersing themselves in the relevant sport for 34 months.
Kim Min-jae completed registration as an arts and sports agent in June of last year, and must undergo three weeks of training within a year after registration.
Kim Min-jae’s team, Napoli, is right in front of their eyes to win the championship, but since the last game of the season is over at the beginning of June, there is not much time after returning home. Accordingly, basic military training is being promoted in mid-June. 안전놀이터
However, Klinsmann will play two consecutive matches against Peru on June 16 and El Salvador on the 20th of the same month. Since both games are held during the A-match period designated by the International Football Federation (FIFA), Kim Min-jae, a foreign player, has to agree unconditionally.
Therefore, from the point of view of coach Klinsman, he had to think about the players who would replace Kim Min-jae.
Coach Klinsmann called in four Qatar World Cup members, Kim Min-jae, Kim Young-kwon, Kwon Kyung-won, and Cho Yoo-min, as center backs for the A match last March.
