Where are they now? League-wide edition
Victory pulled off a worldie in punting Berisha to Japan for a transfer fee. Felt like a strange move when it was announced.
Absolutely. Abysmal piece of scouting by Sanfrecce. It was pretty clear that Berisha's impressive engine was already a lot of smoke in the inferior A-League as of the season before last, so it was stunning that they wasted a squad and (Asia?) visa spot on him.
That and their two other visa strikers seem to be doing well.
I just noticed that they are way out on top so whatever it is Sanfrecce are doing they're doing well whatever this internet numptie thinks.
In other J-League news, it can't be long before Ange is back in Oz, as Yokohama are really struggling. Last night a loss at home to fellow strugglers Nagoya leaves them a point above the relegation playoff position with over half the season gone.
Alas, this result also means that Jordy's V-Varen Nagasaki slide into a relegtion place.
