Jamshedpur FC, a club in the Indian Super League (ISL), has signed Japanese midfielder Rei Tachikawa on a one-year contract. The 25-year-old midfielder is set to join from Maltese side Sirens FC, where he had an impressive season with 23 appearances and two goals.
Rei Tachikawa’s journey to Europe began after he left his local club Osaka Uni H&SS in 2018 to join Portuguese side Perafita. He later moved to another Portuguese club, Felgueiras, before eventually landing in Malta in 2019 to play for Santa Lucia.
“I’m so excited to finally come to Jamshedpur FC,” stated Tachikawa. “The club has proved its worth on a national stage by winning trophies and entertaining fans, and I’m very happy to finally be here. The culture of India and Jharkhand is unique and special and playing football here is a challenge that I welcome with open arms. I’m sure that I can help the team win even more this season.”
“Rei Tachikawa is a player that people will sit up and take notice of,” stated Jamshedpur FC Head Coach Scott Cooper. “He is a technical and high-tempo player who can get forward and score goals with both feet as well as his head. His passing game is good, and he is very competitive. He has played in Europe too and I think he will be an excellent signing for us.”
The club has confirmed that Rei Tachikawa will wear the number 8 shirt for Jamshedpur FC in the upcoming ISL campaign. His addition to the team is expected to strengthen their midfield and contribute to their performance in the league.
