Kurihara is back! Kind of...

Keisuke Kurihara is returning to Vissel Kobe... as a coach in the soccer school! After an honorable 4-year stint at Vissel from 2005 to 2008, he followed former manager Matsuda to J2 newcomers Tochigi SC where he spent his final year as a player. Through his gutsy performances on the field, Kurihara became a fan favorite in Kobe, and I particularly remember his contribution to helping us get back to J1 in 2006.
All of us at La Famiglia (and Vissel) will give him a warm welcome-back to Kobe and are delighted to have him part of the club again.
