Pogoń Szczecin vice-president, Grzegosz Smolny has described him in the following words: “He plays intelligently, has a good first touch, is very fast, agile, efficient, pugnacious, has a good throw-in and reads the game well”. ‘Taku’ is Pogon’s second Japanese player, and joins ‘Aka’ (Takafumi Akahoshi) at the Szczecin club.
