He wants to play until he is 60 years old. As he will be blowing “only” 55 candles on February 26, Kazuyoshi Miura still has room. The former Japanese international (89 caps, 55 goals) will soon return to the field because he is coveted by two clubs in the fourth division. “King Kazu”, who is currently training in Osaka, was contacted by two JFL (Japan Football League) clubs, the Suzuka Point Getters, led by his older brother, and Kochi United, according to the daily.Nikkan Sports, this Sunday.


“I still have the passion. I want a club with a clear vision, capable of playing the climb, ”explains the veteran. Last year, Miura had already improved his record as the oldest footballer in Japan by playing in the J-League (D1) for Yokohama FC, who have reportedly returned for this season. But he only played one minute and the team finished last in the championship, of no consequence since there is no relegation.

Recognized as one of the most popular Asian players in the 1990s, Miura began his professional career with Brazilian club Santos in 1986. He also wore the shirts of Genoa (Serie A), Croatia Zagreb and FC Sydney, scoring 222 goals in 853 pro games. However, he was removed from the team which played its first World Cup in 1998 in France, before being consoled by also becoming an international indoor football player, in 2012, at the age of 45.
