Daisuke Oku (奧 大介, Oku Daisuke, February 7, 1976 – October 17, 2014) was a Japanese football player. He played for Japan national team.[1]

Career[edit]

Oku turned professional after graduating from Kobe Koryo Gakuen High School in 1994.[2] In 280 J1 League matches, representing Júbilo Iwata, Yokohama F. Marinos and Yokohama FC, he scored 62 times.[2][3] He played for Júbilo Iwata until 2001, helping the club win two league titles and then played five seasons with Yokohama F. Marinos, where he won two more titles.[2] He finished his career in 2007 after playing for one season with Yokohama FC.[2][4]

Oku earned his first national cap in 1998 and appeared in 26 matches through 2004 for the senior national side, scoring on two occasions.[2][4]

Personal life[edit]

Oku married actress Hinako Saeki in 2002. In 2013, Oku was arrested by Kanagawa Prefecture police after he threatened to kill Hinako on multiple occasions.[4] Saeki eventually filed for divorce later that year.[5] But prosecutors decided not to indict Oku.[3]

Death[edit]

On the morning of 17 October 2014, Oku was killed following a car accident on Miyako Island.[6] He was driving on a prefectural road at about 4:25 a.m. when his car veered into the opposite lane and struck a telephone pole.[2] According to police, he was transported to a hospital, where he was soon pronounced dead from a broken pelvis and other injuries.[2] There were no other passengers in the car and following his death, police began investigating the cause of the accident.[3]
