Takayuki Morimoto (Japan)

Today he made his Serie A debut with Catania at just 18 years of age and scored the equalizer against Atlanta.
He is a new Japanese star. p

I was just about to post something about this. Amazing story when you think about it. He's the youngest ever scorer in the J-league aswell at 15.

He's talented, no doubt about it but still really young.

This is a great clip. It's on Catania's home page. Take a look if you have a chance

He will be away from the field for 6 months because of a tear of his anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.

I'm soo gutted.
He was starting to get playing time regularly at first team. :frownani:
Hope he will recover soon...

He scored and assisted on the opening day of the season [in Catania's 2-2 draw against Parma]. He has something, scores on his debut and scores after returning from a serious injury. Of course it's early days, but Italy seems a good place to be for Japanese footballers.

And here you can be privy to his contributions. My thanks to MondoCatania for the uploading job.

Which team did Morimoto come from?

Don't lament the treachery of time;
long have dogs danced over the carcasses of lions.

Don't suppose that their dancing raises them above their masters;
for dogs remain dogs, and lions remain lions.

Insult me as you wish;
For my silence to the depraved is a response.

It's not that I have no response, but;
A lion does not reply to a dog.
