Comment from the player:
"I came back to Cerezo. I played in Germany leaving Cerezo for a half of year and that period made me feel strongly that my home is nothing but Cerezo. Many people helped me to come back so I will set my heart to start all over again to be appreciated by the people. So I determined to play well and want to play for Cerezo as long as possible. I will do my best"
