The 2014 Vegalta Sendai season is Vegalta Sendai's fifth consecutive season and seventh season overall in J. League Division 1. Graham Arnold managed the team to start the season, but he parted ways with the club after taking just two points from the first six games. Arnold identified the advanced age of the Vegalta roster, with 17 players over the age of 30, as a factor in the team's poor performance and his split with management.[1] Susumu Watanabe, a former assistant coach, succeeded Arnold as manager.[2]
