MISAGH in Japan to try out for J2 team, TOKYO VERDY
But back to serious business. The Philippines favorite Persian, or rather, Filipino-Persian and Global FC standout has been invited by JLeague second division team Tokyo Verdy for a tryout. His tryout begins tomorrow Dec 10 as per Misagh himself. If this tryout of his would end with a contract, this should be the first time that a Filipino player(as far as I know) will ply his trade in the J League. Speaking of J Leagues, Dennis Cagara, who's contract ends in Dec 31 has also mentioned his willingness to play in the J leagues as long as it is in the 1st division. It would be incredible if two Filipinos play in the J Leagues for the very first time in the 1st and 2nd division in the same year! Check this site, I've got something written about his current situation.
Since I'm a stats geek. Here is some team information just so you know the quality of the team Misagh is trying out for: After 38 league games Tokyo Verdy is 5th in the 20 team 2nd division. They have a record of 16-11-11. They have scored 69 goals and have allowed 45. They are currently first in scoring and seventh on defense.
No doubt this team does not need offensive help unless they are soon to loose players through contract ending or they have depth problems in their roster. Either way it will be a steep test for Misagh, fortunately he's got his dazzling speed and a relatively young age to impress the Verdy coaches. Good luck Misagh!!!
