Transfer news LIVE: Chelsea’s Enzo Fernandez BREAKS silence after record change, Ziyech to PSG OFF, Arsenal sign Jorginho
Oldest pro, 55, swaps Japan for Portugal
Kazu Miura, the world’s oldest professional footballer, has signed with a new club to continue his incredible 37 YEARS career.
The 55-year-old forward, who played for the Japan national team for a decade, began his professional career in 1986 with Brazilian club Santos.
He has since moved to another team 14 times but spent 17 years at Yokohama FC before being loaned out to Suzuka Point Getters last year.
And now Miura, who turns 56 on February 26, has secured another loan move to the 15th club of his career.
He has sealed a temporary move to Portuguese second division club Oliveirense.
And it makes sense given that the majority owners of the European team also own Yokohama.
Oliveirense, ninth in the Portuguese second division, meets fifth-placed Vilafranquense on Saturday, where Miura could make his debut.
After joining his new team, Miura told Reuters: “Even though this is a new place for me, I will work hard to show everyone the kind of game I’m known for.”
Miura, who played in front of Lionel Messi, was BORNis the oldest player in history to score in the J-Leaa.
The icon originally rose to fame in the early ’90s when he trumped Grampus Eight-playing English legend Gary Lineker for the J-League Most Valuable Player award.
