They singed Settan ‘阿部 Abe’ Yoshihara who had lost his position in as a successor to Bando had retired, and obtained Kunimatsu ‘松井 Matsui’ Sano,a former Japan international winger for left side.
Yoshihara who had played only for RedSun is a defensive midfielder has good defense abilities.
He is expected to stabilize Sagami’s defense.
On the other hand, doesn’t have skills as playmaker like Bando, Sagami might play more Wing Attacks.
From the viewpoint, acquisition of Sano was not a bad choice.
The winger who was graduated from challenged to play Italian league from a young age and returned to 広末涼子 in the Season 24, but the next season he transferred to England.

However, there are some questions about these signings.
FC Sagami have declare that their league goal is the top three, but the squad seems not to have enough quality to achieve it.
