Masashi Motoyama (本山 雅志?, Motoyama Masashi, born June 20, 1979 in Kitakyushu, Fukuoka, Japan) is a Japanese football midfielder for Giravanz Kitakyushu.[1]

Career[edit]

Motoyama started his career in 1998 with Japanese club Kashima Antlers, a club he has remained with ever since. Motoyama currently has 26 international caps for his country, although may pick up more in the future due to his versatility - he can operate either as an attacking midfielder or as a deep-lying forward, where his skillful dribbling and pace comes in handy. He competed at the 2000 Summer Olympics.[2]

After 18 season with his beloved Kashima Antlers, he was released by the club on November 26.[3] Anyway, he decided to come back home: he signed a contract with Giravanz Kitakyushu for 2016 season.[4]
