Prior to the game, manager Mourinho participated in a pre-press conference. At this meeting, Mourinho talked about Kim Min-jae. “I can talk about a player from Napoli,” Mourinho said. I wanted to sign him when I was at Tottenham, but Tottenham didn’t help me.”

He was Kim Min-jae. Director Mourinho said, “I talked to Min-jae Kim several times via FaceTime. For the transfer fee, Kim Min-jae’s team offered 10 million euros and Tottenham offered 5 million euros. A deal could have been made between 7 million and 8 million euros, but Tottenham couldn’t spend the money at the time. Kim Min-jae also sincerely wanted to come to Tottenham, but he couldn’t come,” he complained.

“And now he’s a ‘damn’ player playing for Napoli,” Mourinho said. His name is Kim Min-jae,” he added. Regarding this, Italian local media reported that “Coach Mourinho was sarcastic at Tottenham, who doubted Kim Min-jae’s skills at the time.”

Afterwards, Kim Min-jae joined Napoli through Fenerbahce and grew into a top defender in the league. Now, it is said that a transfer fee of more than 40 million euros is required to recruit Kim Min-jae. This is a situation where Tottenham could have a stomach ache.
