Nowhere are more Japanese than in the Jupiler Pro League: “It’s a win-win situation” | Belgian Football

Go back in time. Masahiro Endo. Perhaps the name rings a bell. He was the pioneer. In July 2000, the Japanese defender signed a contract with KV Mechelen. Ten months later he was gone again. Impact: nil. Takayuki Suzuki was number two, at Racing Genk that is. A transfer imposed by shirt sponsor Nitto in 2002 but not a success story either. After a season without goals and assists, Genk kept him at a sister club. They were more kamikazes than direct hits.
