In a statement on the club’s website, Miura said: ‘In the 2020 season, I was able to renew the contract with Yokohama FC.
With the team in J1, I will make every effort to help the club stay in the division.
‘I hope to enjoy playing soccer and remember to be grateful as I make an effort to achieve the club’s goal of staying in the J1. I’ll work hard to contribute to the team’s wins.’
