“Respectful centre-back” praised! Van Dijk-Baran-Silva and beyond legendary, top 25 revealed KIM who are the 3 on top? England’s ’90min’ selected and announced the ‘World’s Best Central Defender Top 25’.
The media outlet said, “In football right now, center backs are incredibly valuable. Performing this role requires not only mental and physical characteristics, but also the ability to lead and coordinate defense lines. It’s hard to pick the 25 best center backs. After much discussion, I made this list. I’m confident that it’s enough,” he said.
Kim Min-jae was named as the world’s best center back ‘4th.’ That’s a huge ranking.
Kim Min-jae was recognized as the best defender in Italy’s Serie A Napoli last season. Napoli won the championship for the first time in 33 years, and Kim Min-jae won the best defensive award in Italy. Most of the big clubs in Europe showed interest in Kim Min-jae in the transfer market last summer, and he chose Bayern Munich.
He continued his prowess in Bayern Munich. Matthijs De Licht, the leading center back, was pushed to the bench to become the undisputed starting player. In addition to his defensive skills, his aerial ball ability and passing ability have been added, leading to praise for Kim Min-jae.
The media said, “European fans paid attention to center back Kim Min-jae, who led Napoli to victory last season. With the move to Bayern Munich this season, we can now admire Kim Min-jae in the Bundesliga. We will hear more stories about this monster called a monster,” he stressed.
In particular, Kim Min-jae ranked higher than legends such as Marquignos (Paris Saint-Germain), Raphael Varane (Manchester United), Thiago Silva (Chelsea) and Virgil van Dijk (Liverpool), who have reigned as the world’s best center backs in recent years, signaling that the generational shift of the world’s soccer center backs is progressing rapidly. 스포츠토토

Regarding Diaz, who ranked first, the media said, “Dias started an amazing career at Manchester City and continued to improve over time. In his first season with Manchester City, he was named FWA Player of the Year, Manchester City Player of the Year, Premier League Season Player, and UEFA Champions League Season Defender. He also led Manchester City’s treble last season. As of now, there is no better center back than Díaz,” he explained.
