Position : Midfielder
DOB : 19 Jan 1985
Nickname : Funa
The second midfielder brought to the club after 2012 in a bid to totally rebuild that part of the team.
He came to the club along with Miyamoto from Montedio Yamagata where they had worked together in a well drilled, efficient team.
He should try and bring some of that ethos to Avispa and look to be effectively using the ball when in possession of it rather than dwelling too long on the ball.
Scored a couple of shots from outside the area in his last season at Montedio and will hopefully maintain confidence to take on long shots and not allow teams to settle.
