F. Marinos snap up duo

Yokohama F. Marinos on Monday announced tentative agreements with two new foreign players for the 2017 season.

Midfielder David Babunski, who turned out for Barcelona B and has represented Macedonia at the international level, will arrive from Serbia’s Red Star Belgrade.

“I knew I wanted to come to Japan from the moment I received this offer,” he said. “I love Japan and Japanese culture!

“I am incredibly grateful to Yokohama F. Marinos for the opportunity to continue my career in Japan. I want to place all of my efforts and abilities at the disposal of the team.”

Australian defender Milos Degenek, who will also join the team from 1860 Munich, said: “I’m excited to join one of the J.League’s top clubs.

“I hope that we can accomplish our goals and bring happiness to the fans to believe in F. Marinos.

“I’ve heard great things about Japan and its culture, and I look forward to many new experiences.”

The two 22-year-olds will officially sign with the club following their medical checks.
