A popular player with the fans, of all the players who left after the 2010 season I was most surprised that Nakaji ended up leaving the club.
First choice left-back for 3 seasons in Fukuoka he was billed as a set-piece specialist and is proficient at this, but has only scored 2 goals in his career so probably doesn’t deserve any sort of reputation for it.
Has the ability to play Hollywood passes with his left foot, but over the course of a season will probably cost more goals with his dodgy positioning than he will create with his sporadic good balls.
Kashiwa Reysol had probably seen a highlights reel of his assists from the season, and may well get a shock when they see him on a weekly basis as I don’t think he will cope with the demands that a J1 right winger may represent.
Can be a bit hot-headed and gets involved in on-field battles which will see him pick up at least 1 red card a season.
