Tanaka Had To Leave The Match
Tanaka is one of the finest midfielders for the Fortuna Dusseldorf club, and he has been a key player in most of the matches for his team.
But on October 31, 2022, he had to leave the ongoing match just minutes before the match ended.
Tanaka suffered from a knee injury during the match against Holstein Kiel club.
In the 83rd minute, he was substituted and taken out of the match because of the pain he was having in his knee.
The team won the match with a 2-1 lead, but the injury of Tanaka was like a match loss for the club.
Fortunately, Tanaka came up to the media and expressed that it was a minor injury and that he would soon be playing for the team again.
But no official announcement has been out from the clubs or doctors. So it is yet to be confirmed about his presence in future games.
Tanaka Waited Till The Olympics
Tanaka played for a J1 club Kawasaki Frontale in Tokyo, Japan.
He has never played for any other clubs away from his country, but he also wanted that to happen like any other player.
He wanted to improve his gameplay and gain experience from moving into any European club, as those clubs are really good.
Fortunately for Tanaka, he got offers from some European clubs.
His agent revealed that he had some offers in front of him, and he also seemed positive about them.
But the agent said it would be a bit difficult for Tanaka to move to a European club.
Still, the agent was confident that he would make the transfer.
Tanaka had to prepare for the coming Olympics, so he kept the transfer aside for a while.
As a loaned player, Tanaka was transferred to Fortuna Dusseldorf, a Bundesliga 2 club.
But after a year of brilliant performance, he was made permanent at the club.
Tanaka Is Full Of Achievements
Tanaka might not have achieved many recognizable titles in the BundesLiga2 league, but playing in Japan, he has made quite a name for himself and has achieved quite a fair amount of trophies.
Tanaka played for Kawasaki Frontale in 2018, and in his debut match, he scored a goal in just starting 6 minutes.
The club saw his potential from that day, and he never stopped. He won the J1 league in 3 seasons.
He also helped the club to win Emperor’s Cup and the Japanese Super Cup. Despite his frequent injury in 2019, he still managed to get the J League Rookie of the year award.
He was the first player in his club to get this award which made the club and its manager proud.
Moreover, his brilliant performance in the Olympic match and his popularity throughout his journey made the club proud.
He was the only player to reach that height of success in his club.
