SSC Napoli Wins Serie A Title for the First Time in 33 Years with Kim Min-jae's Key Role


SSC Napoli, the football club where South Korean national team defender Kim Min-jae plays, has won the Italian professional football league Serie A for the first time in 33 years. In the 33rd round of the 2022-2023 Serie A, Napoli drew 1-1 with Udinese at the Friuli Stadium in Udine, Italy on May 5th (Korean time). Napoli achieved 25 wins, 5 draws, and 3 losses in 33 games this season, earning a total of 80 points. They secured the championship regardless of the results of the remaining 5 games, as they widened the point gap with second-place Lazio (19 wins, 7 draws, and 7 losses; 64 points) to 16.

This victory in Serie A is Napoli's first in 33 years, including the 1986-1987 season, since the 1989-1990 season. Kim Min-jae played a key role in the historic league victory during his first season at Napoli.

This victory is a significant accomplishment for SSC Napoli, whose previous Serie A triumph came in the 1989-1990 season. The team, led by head coach Luciano Spalletti, has had a remarkable season, with a strong defense and impressive performances by many of its players, including Kim Min-jae.

Kim Min-jae, also known as "The Monster," joined SSC Napoli in August 2022 from Beijing Guoan FC. He quickly became an important player for the team, playing a key role in the defense and contributing to the team's overall success. His performances on the pitch have earned him praise from fans and teammates alike.

This victory in Serie A is not only a significant achievement for SSC Napoli, but also for Kim Min-jae, who has made a major contribution to the team's success in his first season playing in Italy. With this victory, SSC Napoli has cemented its place as one of the top teams in Italian football, and Kim Min-jae has proven himself to be a formidable defender in one of the world's toughest leagues.
