    Happy for him that he gets to challenge himself again in Europe, and this time in a first division league.

    His first move to Europe, to SV Horn, was a weird one. What happened at FC Tokyo to make him move to a second div Austrian club?

    He suffered from a case of overtraining with associated physical and mental health effects, to the point he was unable to perform at a professional level. Honda invited him to come play at Horn, partly in order to recover and get his career back on track.

    Has he even managed to make the bench in any of the matches? I mistakenly assumed he was guaranteed some playing time if he was going to a tiny Portuguese club.

    Anyone know why he's not even making it onto the bench? Language barrier issue (surprise!)?

    Portimonense will be a solid hub for Japanese players in the next decade.

    Robson Ponte, historical Urawa player, is the club's vice-president.
    And it's not just that, Hulk's agent Teodoro Fonseca (not sure if he still has him though) has a share in the club and his son Theo recently retired from football to support him.
    Koki Anzai, Nakajima, etc., all done this way (by them). Nakajima is now followed by him, too.
    Unsure about Gonda.

    How is Koki Anzai? Highlights can make anyone look good, but he looks rather good here.

    One of the best atm offensively, needs to improve defensively.

    In the video there weren't many defensive highlights haha.
    Looks like an exciting player though. Which is good we need more side-backs to come through.
