Defender Gen Shoji says he is excited by the prospect of playing in France after completing his move to Toulouse. Having moved to the French side from J. League first division club Kashima Antlers, Shoji says he is ready for the challenge in Ligue 1 and feels he has the ability to cope. “I have an impression that players in the French first division are physically strong,” Shoji said. “But one of my strengths is the ability to look at how the opposing players perform and change how I deal with them. I think I will be able to adjust and be flexible.”
The 26-year-old Shoji rose to prominence as a key member of the Japan squad that impressed at last year’s World Cup in Russia, as they reached the last 16 of the competition only to lose narrowly to Belgium.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
