 - Comment from Tanabe
"Hi all, I'm back to F.C.Tokyo. I'm Sotan Tanabe. I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to staff at Sabadell and F.C.Tokyo and all fans for allowing me to play in Spain for two years. Playing away from F.C.Tokyo reminded me I love the club. I will capitalise on what I learned and got from my two-year spell in Spain and contribute to F.C.Tokyo clinching the title. VAMOS TOKYO! Let's strive together!"
