      Kim Min-jae of Società Sportiva Calcio Napoli made a strong impression in his debut in Italy's Serie A on Monday.
      Kim helped his team to a 5-2 victory in the club's season opener against Hellas Verona.
      He started as a central defender and played for the whole match, delivering an impressive performance, not only blocking attackers as a defender but also penetrating the opponent's defense.
      "Kim was perfect, majestic. In some circumstances, he was similar to [Kalidou] Koulibaly," Napoli manager Luciano Spalletti said after the match.
      Senegalese star Koulibaly served as a central defender at Napoli for eight seasons before moving to Chelsea in the English Premier League this summer.
