Japan Football’s Amazing Choice 47-year-old president preview

There is a new wind in Japanese soccer. A former player who will turn 47 years old next year has been appointed as the head of the association that oversees Japanese soccer. The Japan Football Association held an extraordinary council meeting on Monday and announced that it has approved Tsunayasu Miyamoto, 46, its executive director, as its 15th chairman.

Miyamoto won more than half of the support at an extraordinary council meeting attended by 74 people, and will succeed Tajima Gozo, whose term expires in February next year. The term of the head of the Japan Football Association is two years. Miyamoto was a defender who played in Japan (Gamba Osaka, Vissel Kobe) and Austria (Salzburg) during his active career.

He played 71 A matches for the Japanese national team, participating in the 2002 Korea-Japan World Cup and the 2006 Germany World Cup. In particular, he wore a mask at the Korea-Japan World Cup and raised his name as the “captain” who led Japan to its first round of 16. Kim Tae-young’s mask maker, who was loved as the “mast fighting spirit” in Korean soccer, is known to have made Miyamoto’s mask. 온라인카지노사이트

After his retirement in 2011, he became the leader of the Gamba Osaka, his former team, and coached Hwang Ui-jo (Norwich City). Since then, Miyamoto has transformed into an administrator and made his dream come true as the president of the KFA in his 40s.

Miyamoto reportedly received high support in this election by emphasizing his career as the first presidential candidate to experience both the J-League and the World Cup. Emphasizing that “I will make soccer more important in this country,” he also promised to host the 2031 Women’s World Cup, the Under-17 World Cup, and the Under-20 World Cup.
