Hiroshi Ibusuki (指宿 洋史 Ibusuki Hiroshi?, born 27 February 1991) is a Japanese professional footballer who plays for Albirex Niigata as a striker.

Club career[edit]

Born in Nagareyama, Chiba, Ibusuki played all his youth football with Kashiwa Reysol. On 2 January 2009, aged not yet 18, he was purchased by Girona FC in Spain, signing a three-year contract. He made his Segunda División debut on 19 April, playing ten minutes in a 0–3 away loss against Hércules CF at the José Rico Pérez.[1]

Ibusuki spent the following two seasons on loan, with Real Zaragoza B (Tercera División) and CE Sabadell FC (Segunda División B),[2] and made his debut for the latter in a 0–0 draw against UE Lleida, again as a substitute.[3] He would, however, be a major contributor to the Catalans' promotion to the second level, starting in 26 of the games he appeared in and scoring ten goals, best in the squad.

In the 2011 summer Ibusuki signed for Sevilla FC in La Liga,[4] but spent the vast majority of his first season with the B team, in division three. On 21 January 2012 he made his first-team debut, coming on for Álvaro Negredo in the 83rd minute of a 1–1 away derby draw against Real Betis.[5]

International career[edit]

On 17 September 2010, Sabadell announced that Ibusuki had been selected to play for the Japanese under-19 team.[6]
