Upamecano injured, only freshman Kim Min-jae remains at the back for Bayern Munich
Dayo Upamecano, who combined with Korean soccer’s “defensive nucleus” Kim Min-jae to secure Bayern Munich’s (GER) backline, has been injured and is expected to miss up to three weeks.”Upamecano injured his left hamstring (muscle in the back of the thigh) in the Bundesliga match against Freiburg on Sunday (Aug. 8) and has been ruled out of action for the time being,” the Bavarians said on their official channel on Nov. 11.Upamecano, a center-back for Munich, signaled to the bench in the 29th minute of the seventh round home game against Freiburg that he was feeling unwell and wanted a substitute, and left the field three minutes later.
Earlier, German outlet Sport1 reported that Upamecano will miss Mainz’s first league game since the end of the October A-match window on Sept. 22, followed by Galatasaray’s UEFA Champions League (UCL) clash with Turkkiye and a league match against Darmstadt on Sept. 28.Bild also reported that Upamecano underwent a medical examination and was diagnosed with a hamstring injury that will require two to three weeks of recovery, before the club officially confirmed his absence for the time being.Upamecano, like Kim Min-jae, is widely regarded as a tall but quick-footed central defender.
Upamecano, like Kim, is known for his length and quickness in the center of the park, and he has been a key part of Munich’s backline since first-choice center back Matthias Düricht was sidelined with injury early in the season.The duo has been a fan favorite, utilizing their quick feet as much as their striker counterparts to pick off any opponents who try to get in behind them.Having conceded just six goals in seven regular-season games, the Bavarians are unbeaten in the early going with five wins and two drawsFortunately for the Bavarians, Dürricht is expected to be back in time for the end of the A-match period.
The club announced that Diricht, who has been suffering from a knee injury, started running on the pitch on Tuesday and is making progress in his recovery.With a number of injuries to last season’s back four, it looks like ‘freshman’ Kim Min-jae is set to become the go-to center back in his first season at the club.Before his transfer, it was expected that unlike Napoli (Italy), he would be able to stay fit in Munich while competing with world-class central defenders such as Dürrich and Uffa Meccano.However, after playing five consecutive full-time matches since the third round of the regular season due to an injury to Diricht, it will be difficult for Kim to get a break when he returns to his club after the A-League season.
Kim returned to Korea in October to train for the A-League after being called up by Korean national team coach Jürgen Klinsmann.Kim joined Klinsmann’s squad after the early morning match against Freiburg on Sept. 9 in Seoul, Korea, and trained normally at the Paju National Training Center (NFC) on Oct. 10 without any rest.Klinsmann’s team will play Tunisia in a friendly at the Seoul World Cup Stadium on Sept. 13 at 8 p.m., followed by Vietnam at the Suwon World Cup 카지노사이트 Stadium on Sept. 17 at 8 p.m.
