“I will continue this adventure with Latina until the end of the season and I will give my support to the team. I should have stayed until March but thanks to my University (Chou University) I have been allowed to continue. I thank to all from Latina club, coach Daniele Bagnoli, teammates and all the fans of Latina and the rest of Italy for the great affection they have shown to me. I also thank to all Japanese fans who continued to follow me even in Italy. I love this team and my University understood my needs and allowed me to stay and play” said Ishikawa.
