Eric Dier, Son Heung-min’s (Tottenham) ‘old teammate’, appeared in the rearguard of Bayern Munich, a prestigious German soccer team, where Kim Min-jae missed out on the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup. Munich defeated Union Berlin 1-0 in the 13th round match of the 2023-2024 German Professional Football Bundesliga held at the Allianz Arena in Munich, Germany on the 24th (local time). While Kim Min-jae, who joined before the opening and quickly took over as the starting center back, left the team to participate in the 2023 AFC Qatar Asian Cup, coach Thomas Tuchel sent Matthijs De Ligt and Dayot Upamecano as the starting central defenders.
This was the combination that led Munich’s defense until Kim Min-jae joined, but it did not work for long in today’s game. This is because Upamecano left the field after playing only the first half due to injury. Upameccano appears to have injured the muscle behind his thigh, a chronic injury site. Coach Tuchel chose Dier as Upamecano’s replacement. Dier, who entered the field at the start of the second half, worked with De Ligt and guarded the rear until the end of the game .Dier, who made his Munich debut on this day, was a member of Tottenham (England), where Son Heung-min plays, until the beginning of this month .Dier, who has been with Tottenham since 2014, a year before Son Heung-min, played as a defensive midfielder, but switched to center back in 2019 and continued his career.
However, as his feet have become slower recently, he has had difficulty blocking fast attackers one-on-one, and after facing criticism for contributing to the ‘collapse of Totteham’s defense’ in the 2022-2023 season, he moved to Munich in the middle of this season .In his debut game in Munich, he showed stable defense without creating any critical situations, recording two clearances and one interception .Munich held on to win the game thanks to Rafael Guerreiro’s winning goal, which came less than a minute into the second half. Munich, second in the league with 3 points added (14 wins, 2 draws, 2 losses, 44 points), trailed leader Leverkusen (15 wins, 3 draws, 48 points) by 4 points .Special striker Harry Kane, who is 카지노사이트킹 known to have been influential in bringing Dier to Munich, was silent on this day.
