"Dear F.C.Tokyo fans.
I've decided to move to Austrian division three team SV Horn.
I joined F.C.Tokyo Komazawa School when I was a third grader as an elementary school student. Since then for 18 years, I was able to grow by training in F.C.Tokyo's wonderful environment. In other words, I don't know any teams other than F.C.Tokyo. After getting promoted from U-15 to U-18 and from U-18 to the senior team, I'd never decided my football career path. With my 10-year professional career just around the corner, I would like to take a challenge for the first time in my football career and decided the move this time.
When I was diagnosed with overtraining syndrome, I caused you worry. I thought about retiring once, but the time I was away from football made me feel like playing more than before. With the motivation turned into energy, I will restart my football career from scratch in Europe.
I appreciate you all who have supported me.  And thank you in advance for your continuous support for footballer Shuichi Gonda.

Note: Due to some scheduling issue, we are not able to hold interacting sessions with fans. And to avoid confusion at the airport, we do not announce his flight information. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
