It took a while, but an agreement between Vissel and Urawa has finally been reached on the Popo transfer. As earlier stated, I think this is a good deal for us. We've strengthened his position with a couple of key signings and, with all due respect, he is now past his prime. Still, we owe him a lot for our ninth place finish last year, so.... THANK YOU VAMOS POPO!!
This now means Vissel are Brazilian-free. How many other Brazilian-free J1 teams are there? None?
