Miyamoto played almost every game for us in his first season in 2009, but lost both the armband and his starting position the following year, making only 10 league appearances in the 2010 and 2011 seasons combined. The club had offered him a new contract with a much-reduced annual salary, and after considering this and several other offers, including 2 from Thailand, he has made the right decision to hang up his boots.
I have just gone back to read my posts upon his signing for us back in January 2009.
Vissel signs Miyamoto
My best memory of Miyamoto in a Vissel shirt was the overhead goal he scored against Kawasaki back in July 2009.
