Kentaro Takada Travels Back to Japan for Visa
New Stars signing Kentaro Takada has flown back to Japan to clear up a visa issue. The Stars announced the signing of the Japanese midfielder yesterday in a press release.
Takada twittered on Tuesday that he was on his way back to his home in Japan to get his visa. The midfielder who spent last year in Minnesota playing for the Rochester Thunder PDL team evidently had a temporary visa to tryout in the US but needed to return to his home to acquire a permanent visa, according to Alex Haueter of the NSC. His current visa was scheduled to expire on May 23rd.
