More Changes In Fukushima
Just days after the shock appointment to fledgling club Valiente Fukushima of George Weah as General Manager come developments at another club in the same prefecture with their eyes set on the J-League. FC Perada Fukushima failed to gain promotion from Division 2 (South) of the Tohoku League last season - pipped at the post by the third local candidates, Viancone Fukushima - but have relaunched under the name Fukushima United. As well as the change of moniker, United have signed 22-year-old midfielder Takeshi Kuwahara from Consadole Sapporo; defender Masaaki Watanabe, 24, from Grulla Morioka; and 25-year-old midfield man Kim Kisu from Mito Hollyhock.

Weah Sensation?
Hot on the heels of former Japan national team boss Philippe Troussier's appointment as General Manager of low-ranking JFL side FC Ryukyu come rumours in the Japanese press of a yet more sensational connection between the global game and Japanese non-league football. Rumours are circulating that former World Player of the Year George Weah has accepted an offer similar to that of Troussier, but from a club so far down the pyramid that they in fact barely exist.

Valiente Koriyama - not to be confused with Valiente Toyama of the Hokushinetsu League - were formed in 2007 with the long-term intention of bringing J-League football to Fukushima, north of Tokyo. The plan is that Valiente will enter formal competition this coming season in Division 3 of the Fukushima Prefectural League. This places them six tiers below J2, while seasoned observers of the amateur and semi-pro game in Japan will bear in mind that in Tohoku League sides FC Perada Fukushima and Viancone Fukushima, the local area already has two ambitious clubs at a far more advanced state of development than Valiente.

Liberian star Weah, 41, most recently turned out for UAE club Al-Jazira and towards the end of 2007 was reported as having been turned down by Slavia Prague after a trial with the Czech outfit. Troussier, meanwhile, has appointed as Ryukyu coach fellow Frenchman Jean-Paul Rabier. Rabier was a player with sides such as Laval, Valenciennes and Reims and the 70s and 80s, before going on to coach in his home country, Burkina Faso, Algeria and most recently Qatar.
