- Meiji Yasuda J.League Coca-Cola Player of the Month in March - J1
- Comment from J.League selection committee
Yoshinori Muto saw action in all the three matches held in March as he tallied league leading three goals and made a significant contribution to his team’s undefeated record. The F.C.Tokyo forward scored in three different ways, which proves why he is renowned as a Japanese ace striker. He captivates fans and lives up to their expectations with his high-level skill in top-speed run, prediction for next plays and aggressive efforts for a goal.
He covered a combined total of 36.51 kilometres in the three matches － highest among forwards in the league. The number of sprints was league’s second most 83. With his contribution to defence, the data shows his trademark speed and energy.
- Comment from Muto
It is an honour to be selected for the first Player of the month of the 2015 season. I received this award thanks to all my teammates not just myself. We got off to a good start in this season. We will go for the title and, at the same time, work hard to further boost the J.League.
