Vissel will be without midfielder BOTTI for the next couple of games as he is returning to Brazil for personal reasons tomorrow (May 18).
The player confirmed in a statement today that he will away until the end of May.
"It's very hard for me to leave the team mid-season when they need me most. Unfortunately, an illness in the family has left me no choice. Of course, football is important to me, but nothing is more important in life than family. Still, I will be back in Kobe as soon as I can."
