Yokohama FC should spend their money on young talents not on a 52 year old who played just 3 games all season probably as a substitute and no goal. Miura is only interested in setting a record as the oldest player in a professional league not how much he can contribute to the team's success.

Transparent PR stunt that impresses no one.

Time to retire already

What a man! He made his professional debut the same season that Ryan Giggs did in 1990. He played in the J League before it was even the J League.

Agree that it's a PR stunt but it impresses me! A 53 year old still training hard and playing the occasional game, still living the life and the dream. Fair play to him.

this is getting to be a joke. If defenders ever let this aging star get a shot off with their superior speed and strength they should be fired. He's 52, 52 yr olds are slow.
