Name : Daisuke Sakata 坂田 大輔
Position : Forward
DOB : 16 Jan 1983
The best player to come to the club in recent years he went through a spell of scoring a goal a game for the first 7 games of the season, but then lost form as the club went through it’s worst ever season.
Having picked up a National Team cap while playing for Yokohama Marinos he then went to Greece to try his luck in Europe before coming back to Avispa.
Under Pusnik he added a lot more energy to his game and works well to close down the space as ‘first defender’, and holds the ball up well.
We always look much better as a team when he is in the team, and has a decent chance of being Captain for the season in 2014.
