A bit out of the blue this one, but let me introduce FC Gifu’s latest signing.

Desmond: Previous club – Fujieda MYFC (JFL)

Desmond (or rather Desmond N’Ze Kouassi to give him his full title) comes to Gifu after only playing 7 games for the fan-owned club in the JFL. He is only 23 years old, but he has a few clubs already on his CV – most notably Italian giants Internazionale, although he didn’t make an appearance for the Nerazurri. He also played for Verona and Avellino in Italy before making his way to Fujieda in the latter half of 2012. Desmaond was born in Ghana, but holds Italian nationality as well.   He played as a centre back for Fujieda, but there now seems to be a logjam of defenders in Gfiu. He has the physique & size to possibly move into a defensive midfield role, so we will have to wait and see what plans the management have for him.
