Football: Caz Miura is optimistic about a possible move to Portugal

Kazuyoshi Miura expressed optimism about his potential move to Portuguese second-tier club Oliverense upon his return to Japan on Saturday after a visit to the club.

The 55-year-old, Japan’s oldest active player, has been linked with a transfer that will allow him to play in his fifth country abroad after Brazil, Italy, Croatia and Australia during his 38th professional season.

“I’m determined to take a deep look at whether I can do the job right,” said Miura, who scored twice in 18 games last season for Suzuka Point Jetters in the fourth-tier J.League.

Miura spoke to the Portuguese club’s development director and head of development during his visit and said he had received positive feedback.

“Considering my age and physical condition, I received promising reviews,” Miura said. “I felt that the technical level and intensity were high in the club.”

“It was a surprise to get the chance to play abroad again,” added Miura, who had several offers from J.League clubs as well as an extension proposal from Suzuka.
