Name : Yusuke Tanaka 田中佑昌

Position : Striker / Right wing

DOB : 3 Feb 1986

Height : 1.76,

Weight 73kg

Nickname : Yusuke

A player who came through the youth ranks at Avispa to make his debut as an 18 year old, he has already racked up over 200 games for the club becoming a favorite among many fans.

Playing as a right sided forward or striker he would seem to be the natural successor for Kudo as someone with more energy and pace, who is capable to cut into the box and score goals.

Has pace in abundance which will cause problems for any team, but unfortunately seems to pick up injuries as quickly as very fast players do all over the world.

Re-invented himself at the end of the 2011 season as an attacking right-back and looked great, but then left the club after 11 years to take a sideways move to JEF United.
Seems like a strange move to me after being a big crowd favorite in Fukuoka, and with fans who would allow him mistakes if he continues to learn a full-back’s trade, but I think he was probably offered a big wedge of cash.
