SAKAMOTO SIGNS FOR THREE SEASONS
KV Oostende has lifted the purchase option on Tatsuhiro Sakamoto. The Japanese player signs a contract until 2025, with an option on one more season.
Tatsuhiro Sakamoto came over from Japan's Cerezo Osaka in January on a rental basis (with an option to buy). The two-time international was immediately an asset and stood out for his speed and dribbling skills. He is also very versatile.
Gauthier Ganaye: "Despite the huge adjustments in terms of language and culture, Tatsu had an immediate impact on our game. Whether he had to play left back or right front, he did it with verve. Moreover, he also has an excellent mentality. I'm convinced that we haven't seen even the best Sakamoto yet. If he can participate in the full preparation and adjust even further to the Belgian competition, he can become an absolute trendsetter. It was therefore a logical decision to lift the purchase option. Tatsu himself was also immediately in favour of this because he feels very comfortable in Oostende. I am looking forward to seeing him develop further here."
