‘Monster Defender’ Kim Min-jae is shocking by suggesting retirement from the national team. Although he did not directly express his intention to ‘retire’, he expressed his desire to focus only on his team, which is interpreted as an intention to retire from the national team.
In an interview in the joint coverage area (Mixed Zone) after the evaluation match against Uruguay yesterday (28th), Kim Min-jae expressed regret over his defensive organization, saying, “It was a game I had to win, but it’s a pity that I couldn’t win.” Afterwards, when asked by reporters, “It looks difficult,” he said, “I’m just having a hard time right now and I’m in a state of mental collapse.” He then expressed his intention to retire from the national team, saying, “I plan to focus only on my team, not for the time being.”
