Yesterday the club announced that Brazilian forward Rodrigo, who appeared in 18 games for Gifu this season, had signed for J3 side Fukushima United. Rod never really made the impact that everyone had hoped for here, despite showing huge promise in the pre-season friendly against Nagoya Grampus.

Fukushima are currently 7th in J3, having amassed 30 points so far this year. Rodrigo, registration permitting, could make his debut in this weekend’s fixture away at AC Nagano Parceiro.

We wish Rod the best of luck!
