Zac: 'Tomiyasu a Bologna bargain'

Former Japan Coach Alberto Zaccheroni assures Bologna they’ve “got a real bargain” by signing Takehiro Tomiyasu.

The 20-year-old was picked up this summer from Belgian club Sint-Truiden for €9m and can play as a central defender or right-back.

“He is a complete player and Bologna got a real bargain with Tomiyasu,” Zaccheroni told Tuttomercatoweb.

“We all know (Bologna director of sport Walter) Sabatini never buys anyone unless he knows what he’s doing.

“He’s a good player and was compared to Maya Yoshida, who has been playing in Europe for a decade. He’s got the quality to be a real star.”
