Once again, the injury bug has struck the unfortunate Taira Inoue, who will miss the next month due to a knee injury.

Inoue, the highly popular forward, suffered the injury during training and it is just latest glitch in his comeback from a very serious cruciate knee ligament injury sustained 18 months ago. This latest injury is to the same right knee, but one hopes that it is not connected and that he is given plenty of time to rest and get fully fit.

As ever, we, the FC Gifu supporters, are looking forward to his return.
