The oldest player in the world, Kazuyoshi Miura, has extended his stay with Oliveirense.
The ex-Japan scorer joined Oliveirense on loan from Yokohama in January, and he will stay with them for an undetermined amount of time.
This year, Miura has only been on the field for 28 minutes, which he has done three times as a sub.
The same Japanese people own both Yokohama and Oliveirense.
On the last day of the Portuguese season, Miura was named man of the match after playing for only 26 minutes in a 4-3 win over Leixoes. The manager of the other team said that the ruling was “offensive” and made the game a “circus.”
Miura started his career in 1986 with the Brazilian team Santos. He has been with Yokohama FC since 2005, but he spent 2022 on loan with his older brother Yasutoshi’s fourth-tier Suzuka Point Getters, where he scored twice in 18 games.
He has also played for clubs in Australia, Italy, and Croatia.
The Japanese football legend played for his country for 89 games and scored 55 goals. His career finished 23 years ago.
He has said before that he wants to play until he is 60.
