5 Questions in 5 Minutes with Eagles’ Deadly Playmaker Tatsuro Inui

Question 1 –

Tatsuro, please enlighten us on how have you been spending your time in Singapore and what are your hobbies ?

Ans: Singapore is an awesome and sunny country. I am really enjoying the food and shopping here. I am an avid Japanese Movie Fan and I often catch a movie of any genre during my off-time. Besides frequently patronizing Orchard Road and Somerset 313, I fancy delicious Japanese cuisine with my friends. Nevertheless, my favourite Singaporean dish would be definitely, Chicken Rice… Mmmmmm Sedap !!!

Question 2 –

How was the Eagles’ 2015 League Cup journey been and your views about facing Harimau Muda ?

Ans: We (Geylang International), really wanted be ‘The New Paper League Cup 2015’ champions. However, we unfortunately lost out to Albirex Niigata (S) FC, in the Semi-Finals. Nevertheless, we still got the S.League and RHB Singapore Cup 2015 to keep us going and possibly, we can clinch some silverware this season. We hope to bring forward the form and clinch three points, despite it being our first game of the second-half of the season. However, I feel that the team is more confident than the last time, and that our morale is soaring high, but we are not going to be complacent against the swift Malaysian side.

Question 3 –

What do you think of the Eagles’ attacking quartet which you have formed with Hafiz Nor, Bruno Castanheira and Jozef Kaplan ?

Ans: Hafiz, Bruno and Jozef are very good strikers. It is very easy for me to pass to them as they can read the game well and get into good positions, where I can spray the passes towards them. The three of them often make intelligent runs in which I can assist them easily. As compared to the start of the season, the attacking unit has trained hard and are now improving our combinations play time and time again. Nevertheless, I really want to score more goals, but if my team-mates score through my assists, I am even delighted. Overall, it doesn’t matter who scores because, winning games is the ultimate goal.

Question 4 –

How different is the S.League compared to the J.League and what do you think of Geylang International ?

Ans: Last year, I played for SC Sagahimara in the third division of Japan Professional Football League (J3 League). I have plyed my trade previously in the S.League, with Albirex Niigata (S) FC and Singapore Armed Forces the years before. According to me, Japanese soccer is much more systematic and passing movements is repeatedly utilized. On the other hand, Singapore soccer brings into play more individual competence and skills. Geylang International is a very closely knitted team and we have improved from the start of the season. I always believed that in-game communication is very important for us. The team’s morale goes down when we are quiet on the field. However lately, we have been talking and the team is becoming more confident over time.

Question 5 –

Who and What is your favourite player and team in the world ?

Ans: I watch the Barclays Premier League and Spanish La Liga often, but only FC Barcelona have captivated me. I really love how they execute the ‘tiki-taka’ passing and their creativity in front of goal. Furthermore, the whole team works together as one unit in both defence and offense. My favourite player has to be, Xavi Hernandez. He is a small built player, but he uses his brain to pass and outplay others. Hence, I always try to emulate him in matches and trainings. I believe I am the Eagles’ Xavi, hence, I will try to assist my Messi (Jozef), Neymar (Hafiz) & Suarez (Bruno) in the upcoming matches and reward the fans with goals. Hahahahaha…
