3 – Takumi Abe   Leave a comment


Name : Takumi Abe 阿部 巧

Position : Left-back

DOB : 26 May 1991

Height: 1.66m

Weight: 68kg

Coming to the club on loan from FC Tokyo he is at a crossroads in his career which a lot of players in this country find themselves.

He has some good technical skill, he plays with his head up and with pace and has the potential to be a J1 level performer. The decision which he needs to make is whether he is prepared to accept that he isn’t yet a successful footballer despite achieving his dream of getting a pro-contract.

If he can see that his work is just starting now, and by listening to the coaches around him he can try to emulate the other small FC Tokyo left-back Yuto Nagatomo, then he can become a good attacking footballer.
If he thinks he is the finished article, or is happy with his current level, then he will end up playing in J2 for a mid-table team.
