    Geylang International FC (Singapore)
    2011 Albirex Niigata FC (Singapore)


    I played for Albirex Niigata FC (Singapore) in the 2011 season.
    I am playing for Geylang International FC now.
    Playing as a foreign player is different from playing in Japanese clubs and the result is always important.
    I am trying to play well under the pressure.
    From now on I would like to play good football as a former Albirex player.

    Having played in Albirex Niigata FC (Singapore) last year, I could develop as a football player and human being. Thanks to my experience in Albirex, I can now play in Europe. I will be thankful to everyone and try to grow up more.

    Warriors FC (Singapore)
    2011 Albirex Niigata FC (Singapore)


    I played for Albirex Niigata FC (Singapore) in the 2011 season.
    I am playing for Warriors FC in S.League now. I took the first step as an overseas professional football player in Albirex.
    Playing football in a foreign country gives me a lot of opportunities that I cannot experience in Japan.
    I feel those opportunities have contributed to my growth.
    I also think that my mission is, by taking an active role in a foreign country, to enhance the value of football and Japanese players in that region.
    I am 28 years old now and I might be late for playing overseas, but I will keep playing good football and want to show the potential of Japanese players to all over the world.

    Persiba Balikpapan (Indonesia)
    2009 Albirex Niigata FC (Singapore)


    I played for Albirex Niigata FC (Singapore) in the 2009 season.
    Looking back on that season, the majority of the players seemed to be ambitious and I was one of them.
    Our strong personality sometimes made it difficult to play as a team, but it was expressing our strong passion for football.
    We worked hard together and I transfered to another team earlier than the other players.
    I have been playing in Indonesia for 3 seasons and I am working as hard as I was in Albirex to make more progress.
    The players and the staff I worked with in those days are taking in an active part in each field.
    Everyone is strong in the Singapore heat and eager to create their own future in Albirex.
    I appreciate that I have played for this club.

    2009 Albirex Niigata FC (Singapore)


    I played for Albirex Niigata FC (Singapore) in the 2009 season.
    I have been playing overseas for 4 years and I am playing in Thailand now.
    Playing for Albirex made me what I am. I could experience not only playing football but also living in a foreign country. I could also learn the importance of understanding different cultures and adapting myself to them.
    I will use what I have learnt to my advantage and will work hard to progress myself.

    2005 – 2006 Albirex Niigata FC (Singapore)


    I took the first step as a professional football player in Albirex Niigata FC (Singapore) and gained very valuable experiences. Playing in Albirex relieved reluctance and anxiety for playing in foreign countries and I can play overseas by myself now. I hope from now on many Japanese players can have a chance to show their potential to the world. I will also work as hard as other players.

    Pune FC (India)
    2005 Albirex Niigata FC (Singapore)


    I played for Albirex Niigata FC (Singapore) in the 2005 season. I was contracted as a trainee, so I had some difficulties. But I could overcome all the difficulties because playing football as a professional was fascinating to me.
    For young players who want to be a professional, sometimes things don’t go smoothly in spite of their great efforts. I believe Albirex can give them dreams, hopes and motivations. It is because many players in this team, including myself are given a chance to play overseas.
    I hope Albirex will always gather attention as a representative club of Japan and more players take an active role in foreign countries to spread Japanese football.
