RAPHAEL JOSE BOTTI ZACARIAS SENA, or "BOTTI" as we like to call him, played his final game for Vissel Kobe yesterday. I would like to go on record here and say that over the last 5 years he has been our most valuable player. Without the stability he brought to our midfield, we would not have remained in J1 this long, and I have often felt that he has not been given enough credit - possibly due to the nature of the position that he plays. Botti is now a Vissel legend in the eyes of La Famiglia and we will miss him very much.
Botti ole, Botti ole, Forza ole - Botti ole!!
