■Comments
I am Reiya Sakata from Higashiyama High School, and I will be joining the team next season. I see dribbling and breaking through the defense using my speed as my strength and with these I want to make a challenge at Cerezo Osaka. With the "Sakata Zone," as was named during the All Japan High School Soccer Tournament, I will do my best to make Osaka full of full bloom cherry blossom. With a sense of gratitude and pride that I can make the first step toward my dream of becoming a professional footballer at Cerezo Osaka, I will do my best in the rest of my high school life.
