Kyogo Furuhashi has been given the green carpet treatment on a Japanese chat show.

The striker is enjoying something of a break in Japan but was unable to resist the offer to train with Vissel Kobe ahead of Andreas Iniest’s final match for the club.

Kyogo missed out on a World Cup place at the end of last year but seems to be a major personality in Japan with regular media coverage of him, a curiosity about succeeding in a far off country and following in the footsteps of Shunsuke Nakamura.

After 34 domestic goals the next big target for Kyogo is to find the net in the Champions League, a decade ago Nakamura scored home and away against Manchester United with the Celtic Park strike projected around the world.

On Monday Celtic’s non-internationalists return for pre-season training, having played for Japan on June 20 against Peru Kyogo will have extra-time off but it wouldn’t be a big surprise if he is pictured back in training with Vssel Kobe.

    Hoping and expecting a big sum for Kyogo this summer. Im only interested in enhancing this team as quickly as possible, we do that by selliing players in their prime and reinvesting. Zero emotional attachment for this Tim.
