In the past couple of years, we have seen the rise of Japan’s national football team. Not only have they defeated top teams like Germany, Spain, South Korea, and many more, but they have also won several championships. A lot of credit goes to their manager, Hajime Moriyasu, as well as their players. Among these players, the young footballer, Takefusa Kubo has played a vital role in their success. Well, recently, one of the greatest Spanish footballers and the coach of Barcelona praised him.
“Trust me, Kubo is a world class player!”
He also mentioned saying, “With and without the ball, he’s a top-level player. He scores goals and provides assists.”
To be honest, the Barcelona manager, Xavi, is completely right. Kubo is 22 years old and has represented top teams around the world. Not only has he represented them, but he has always given the best for the respective clubs, especially in important games.
At present, with Real Sociedad this season, he has scored more than five goals and provided three important assists for the team. Not single-handedly, but all his contributions have helped Sociedad stand among the top 5 teams in the current La Liga season and have qualified for the round of 16 matches in the UEFA Championship League.
