Kamata shares his memorable match and his appreciation for his supporters with us in part 3 of his interview.
Impressive game with Young Lions
—What was the most memorable team and player you’ve played?
Kamata Hougang United was strong. They had a nicely balanced of defense and attack. In additional, individual skill was high level. That is why they won.
The most memorable players are Shahdan Sulaiman (Tempines #8 ) and Faris Ramli (Hougang #19).
—What was the most memorable game you’ve participated?
Kamata First one is the game against Balestier*1. It was the first time for us to win the game in this season. I became happy then.
Second one is the game against Young Lions*2. Before the game, Kaishu (#7 Kaishu Yamazaki) ‘s grandmother passed away. Therefore, Kaishu played as a captain then. We wanted to win for Kaishu and had passion to win. Hence I clearly remember this game.
—The episode shows the strength of team ties. Who is on good terms with you?
Kamata Same-age members. (#7 Kaishu Yamazaki, #11 Yoshikatsu Hiraga)
I am also on good terms with members who live in condominium together. We even went out for dinner during each other’s birthday.
Supporters are treasure. I want to repay supporters one day.
—You have lived in Singapore for 4 years. What do you like about Singapore?
Kamata People are very kind and the town is pleasant clean environment. I recommend Merlion and The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands.
—Recently, you are trying to be “YouTuber”. You widen your appeal.
Kamata I wanted to try it. I hope people who subscribe to my channel and enjoy watching my videos will increase. YouTube is already the reason some supporters have started to cheer for me. So I think this activity has a good impact.
—What was the most memorable activity except football as a member of Albirex Niigata FC(S)?
Kamata I value all events and activities. I am glad that Singaporean know our activity. I think I want to participate as long as possible and make our name and activity famous.
I am happy I can give a dream to children and communicate with them if we cannot understand each other’s language.
—How were the supporters of Albirex Niigata FC(S)?
Kamata I am happy they cheer for us. Some supporters cheered for me by using panel and sending a message to me via SNS. They motivated me.
It is awesome that Singaporeans cheer for foreign team. So I want to meet their expectations. Supporters are a treasure for me. As the pitch of Jurong East Stadium is very close from the stand, I could hear the cheers of our supporters.
—You received many messages from your supporters who have been cheering for you since you belonged to youth club of Albirex Niigata Japan.
Kamata I want to repay my supporters who have been cheering for me for a long time by playing at Albirex Niigata Japan in the future. As many supporters are waiting for me, I want to meet their expectations.
—Please give a message to supporters.
Kamata I apologize to you that we could not capture any titles. I really appreciate your support and encouragement. Your support motivated and encouraged me. I hope you will cheer for Albirex Niigata FC(S) as well even if our players will change next season.
