Kengo Nakamura was given the opportunity to play as a professional by Kawasaki Frontale when they were a second division team. Other J-league clubs were not interested in him but now he is one of the best midfielders in Japan.

His passing skills meant that he impressed as an offensive midfielder from the beginning although he did spend time as a central defender. An intelligent midfielder but a broken jaw saw him spend almost two months out if action earlier this year.
