Takefusa Kubo on super Real Sociedad form: I thought this could be my last chance to make it

Takefusa Kubo is delighted with his current form at Real Sociedad.

The Japan international left Real Madrid for La Real over the summer, signing a deal to 2027.

“I can’t explain very well what is happening to me either,” smiled Kubo. “In the hotels where I stayed in preseason I thought I had no other choice, that this could be my last chance to make that leap as a footballer.

“I think I’m living up to what people expect of me.”

Fans are now chanting his name and the 21 year-old also said: “I liked it a lot and it gives me a lot of confidence. Football is entertainment and the fans are the ones who give their opinion, the one who pays the ticket.”
