Matsumoto Yamaga on Friday confirmed that manager Yasuharu Sorimachi will continue to lead the club in the 2016 MEIJI YASUDA J2 League season.
The announcement is a declaration of faith in the 51-year-old, who led the club to their first-ever J1 promotion in 2014 before achieving a 16th-place finish in their maiden top-flight season this year.
“Thank you for your exceptional support this year,” Sorimachi wrote in a statement.
“Next season will be an even more difficult challenge, but I want to continue to fight together with our supporters.”
Yamaga travel to Yokohama F. Marinos in the final league round next Sunday.
