I guess it makes sense that a Brazilian manager is going to bring in a couple of Brazilian players. No complaints there.
But Alan Bahia and Marcel have both been brought in on loans. Will the cash from the sales of Okubo and Leandro (undisclosed, but no doubt HEAPS) be used to pay for the inflated gaijin salaries of loan players? Or is Mikitani gonna use it to for his shitty Sendai baseball team?
Another thing, Bahia is a defensive midfielder. Don't we already have one of those?
Kim Nam-Il, our highest paid and (in my opinion) best player, is a defensive midfielder! I know for a fact you don't put two of those on the field unless you're defending a 2-0 lead. This is Vissel Kobe we're talking about. We don't defend leads! We score goals in the final 15!!
I don't mean to sound repetitive, but why couldn't we use that cash to buy, say.... Shinji Kagawa from Cerezo?
And, Marcel Augusto Ortolan? How are we supposed to make a song out of that name?!
