    Genk was massacred 4-1 at home to knock them out of the EL. Ito showed his quality in the 90th minute when he outpaced and outmuscled a Slavia Praha defender and chipped the goalie, only to be denied by the far upper corner of the goal frame.

    What a beauty of a goal! Sucks that he got injured though. Hope it's just a knock and nothing serious.

    Easy tap in. But I knew he would succeed. And add CL to that next season. So nice.

    My current favorite Japanese player, with his pace and directness.
    Hope JNT can utilize him more. With current strategy direction (prioritize the defense), I don't understand why he is not used properly in counter attack.

    His loan is running until the summer of 2020.

    He will be playing in UEFA champions league next season. Genk directly qualifies to the group stage as the Belgian league champions.
