Many European championships are looking to Japan for young footballers. Portugal is no exception in the last decade.
Several clubs from Liga Portugal looked East to find new talents and Gil Vicente did exactly that by taking in Kanya Fujimoto.
The class ’99, coming from Tokyo Verdy, joined the first division club after two and a half seasons with the capital club.
The Liga Portugal took advantage of this opportunity to welcome more Japanese fans. A jersey was up for prize from the talent now at Gil Vicente.
