New Grampus goalkeeper Ogi hopes to inspire youth

New Grampus goalkeeper Ogi hopes to inspire youth

Veteran goalkeeper Kota Ogi wants to be a role model for Nagoya Grampus’ youth, after the club confirmed his and Yohei Takeda’s arrival on full transfers.

Ogi, 32, has spent the last seven seasons as a starter at Ventforet Kofu, while Takeda has kept goal for Oita Trinita since 2014.

“The first pro football match I watched at Gifu Nagaragawa Stadium featured Nagoya Grampus,” Ogi said. 

“I hope that as a member of Grampus I can inspire young players, just as I was inspired in my day.”

“I know I have to use all of my strength to contribute to the club’s results and thank all of you for your support,” added Takeda.
