Northern giants and Hero I-League Champions Minerva Punjab FC are back to business as they gear up for the upcoming Hero I-League season and the AFC Cup with the signing of young Japanese attacker Yu Kuboki who previously starred for Sydney Olympic FC who play in The National Premier Leagues NSW, which is a semi-professional soccer competitions in New South Wales, Australia.
Yu Kuboki is a vital addition to the Mohali based club who will look to defend their title and will represent the country at the upcoming AFC Cup, probably their first assignment outside India. The Club owner Ranjit Bajaj hence would leave no stone unturned to make the best of the opportunity. With the future of Bhutanese International Chencho Gyeltshen not clear at the Club, Yu Kuboki will need to fill the void upfront.
Hailing from Kanagawa, located at the coastal prefecture just south of Tokyo. famously home to a large Chinatown lined with food stalls and restaurants the youngster is gifted with lightning speed and class finishing skills, the 28 year old had previously piled his trade with Thailands League 3 Club Chamchuri United FC before moving to Australia’s National Premier Leagues NSW where he played a vital role in his teams performance and was one of the League’s top scorers.
We wish Yu Kuboki a very best of luck on this maiden assignment on Indian Soil and hope he scores as many to lead the Wariors from Punjab to glory.
