Ventforet Kofu defender Shohei Abe celebrated the birth of his new daughter on Sunday.
The left-back was a part of Nagoya Grampus’ title-winning squad of 2009, and joined Ventforet in 2014.
“I’m really happy that my family has grown,” Abe commented via his club. “This new responsibility makes me want to work harder than ever before on the pitch.”
The Kanagawa native has played all but 26 minutes for Ventforet in the last two campaigns, and even scored the winner over his former club Grampus in March this term.
