DSCF2367No, not that one.

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.
