Jo Su-mi continues to play on ‘Kim Min-jae’s SNS’ → “Maradona 2nd win ‘all intuition’… Thanks to Min-jae, I got it back in 33 years”
World-renowned vocalist Sumi Jo once크크크벳 again thanked Minjae Kim (SSC Napoli) for bringing back memories from 33 years ago.
Napoli confirmed the league championship with a 1-1 draw against Udinese in the 33rd round of Serie A in the 2022/23 season held at Stadio Friuli in Udine, Italy on the 5th (Korean time).
Napoli allowed the opening goal in the 13th minute of the first half, but took one point thanks to Victor Osimen’s equalizer in the 7th minute of the second half.
With a draw against Udinese, Napoli, the league leader, has 80 points (25 wins, 5 draws, 3 losses). As 2nd place SS Lazio (19 wins, 7 draws, 7 losses, 64) won the remaining 5 league games, it was impossible to win the reverse, so the 2022/23 season Serie A champion was decided by Napoli.
Previously, Napoli had won only two Serie A titles (1986/87 and 1989/90 seasons). Both victories were won under legendary footballer Diego Maradona, and since Maradona’s departure, Napoli have never reached the top of the league.
It took 33 years for Napoli to increase their number of Serie A titles to three. The protagonists of Napoli’s third victory included South Korean defender Kim Min-jae.
Kim Min-jae was one of the best defenders in Serie A this season and defended the Napoli defense. Thanks to Kim Min-jae’s performance, Napoli secured the league championship early this season by conceding only 23 goals in 33 games and climbing to the top of the list with the least goals conceded.
Kim Min-jae, who became the protagonist of Napoli’s monumental victory, expressed his feelings through SNS after the game, saying, “I became the Italian champion. I am happy and proud to be part of a historic achievement.”
He added, “I want to congratulate all the fans, colleagues and coaching staff. I want to share this joy with everyone who supported Napoli.”
Amid numerous congratulatory comments on Kim Min-jae’s post, world-renowned vocalist Jo Su-mi also left a congratulatory message for Kim Min-jae.
Sumi Jo congratulated, “Sei grande (You are great)” and “I think Naples won thanks to Min-jae.”
Then, as if the joy did not disappear, a few hours later, Sumi Jo commented again, “When I was studying abroad in Italy, I was able to see Maradona’s Serie A championship twice. I think so,” he said.
Then, he cheered by saying, “Really cool and proud of our player Kim Min-jae!! We will continue to fight!!”
Sumi Jo is also famous for being an avid soccer fan. Maradona joined Napoli while Sumi Jo was studying abroad in Italy in the 1980s, and Napoli became a two-time Serie A champion thanks to Maradona’s performance.
