Dear WTFoot fans welcome at yet another interesting profile of yet another amazing football player! This time it’s about the Japanese superstar Yoshinori Muto. He started his youth career at the J1 League club FC Tokyo in 2008. After representing the club for many years he was regarded as one of the rough diamonds from the youth academy. He made his professional debut in the first game of the 2013-14 season. The coach Massimo Ficcadenti truly believed in the youngster and decided to use him almost every game! In his debut year he played 33 games in which he scored the stunning amount of 13 goals. Not bad for a newcomer. It was clear that this lad had a very bright future ahead of him and in the summer of 2015 he signed at the German Bundesliga club Mainz 05. He signed a four-year deal and scored his first hat-trick of his career in October 2015 versus FC Augsburg. In the summer of 2018 the Premier League club Newcastle United announced that they bought Muto for a fee of 9.5 Million Pound and that they agreed on a four-year contract. He made his first BPL game against Manchester United (3-2 away loss).
