This week, FC Gifu announced the signing of Giravanz Kitakyushu full back Yuki Fuji. Fuji was an integral part of Giravanz’s amazing run in J2 last year, playing a key role as the Kitakyushu side finished a scarcely believable 5th in the league.
Predominantly playing on the left of defence, Fuji has a reputation as someone who can be relied upon to do his job, but also to get forward and help start attacks.
In his (very) brief introduction he said:
“I appreciate the chance to come and play for FC Gifu. I’ll do my best for the players & fans”
The left side came to be a bit of a problem last year. Alex Santos started there before Yusuke Mori took over when Santos got injured. Hopefully the addition of Fuji will stabalize that position.
