Name : Yuya Mitsunaga
Position : Left-back / Left midfield
The only graduate from the U-18 team for the 2014 season a player like Mitsunaga would normally be viewed as a youngster who is expected to watch the 2 older, more experienced loan players ahead of him in line to play at left-back and wait for his chance in 3-4 years.
Fortunately we have a manager now who will judge a player on their ability rather than their name and having seen Mitsunaga in pre-season I expect him to get lots of chances.
He is a tall player for left-back and seems to float across the pitch with a long stride as he looks to get forward.
He may initially be used in a midfield position where I would expect him to do well as he has a range of intelligent crosses, but eventually would move back to left-back and is a player I am excited to see what Pusnik can achieve with.
