The award will be presented to the Napoli defender in the pre-match of Napoli vs Torino

The EA SPORTS Player Of The Month award for September has been assigned to Napoli player Min-Jae Kim. The trophy will be presented during the pre-match of Napoli vs Torino, scheduled for Saturday 1st October 2022 at 3.00pm at the "Diego Armando Maradona" stadium in Naples.

Min-Jae Kim was the most voted by fans on http://serieapotm.easports.com/, in a poll that included Rodrigo Becao (Udinese), Merih Demiral (Atalanta), Theo Hernandez (Milan) and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic (Lazio).

The five best players of the month has been selected taking into account the advanced analysis of Stats Perform, created from the tracking data recorded with the Hawk-Eye system. The rating system, patented in 2010 with K-Sport and scientifically validated, considers not only statistical data and technical events, but also positional data. This makes it possible to analyse crucial aspects such as movement without the ball and thus optimal movements, game choices, and the contribution to the technical and physical efficiency of the team, which allow for an objective and qualitative evaluation of the performance.

For the final calculation were considered the matchdays from 5 to 7 of Serie A 2022/2023.

"The second consecutive award for best player of the month assigned to a new Napoli player demonstrates how well the Azzurri have worked in the summer transfer market - said Lega Serie A CEO Luigi De Siervo -. Min-Jae Kim in September proved to be a real wall, capable of leading the defence and efficiently op-posing two great Serie A strikers like Ciro Immobile and Olivier Giroud. The South Korean is the second defender to deserve the EA SPORTS Player Of The Month, after Koulibaly, whose legacy he picked up at Napoli".
