“After 19 years as a professional, I have decided to retire from playing football at the end of this season.

“Thank you to all the teams, coaches and team-mates that have allowed me to enjoy this dream career.

“Thank you to my family, that has always been there to support me through good and hard times. It is my objective to put the cherry on top by winning the Emperor’s Cup with Vissel Kobe on January 1st.

“From then on, I will continue to enjoy football through all the projects that we’re currently developing with DV7 group. Thank you for all the love.”
