Former Whitecaps FC striker Masato Kudo says goodbye after he and the club mutually agreed to part ways last week. Kudo has subsequently joined J-League side Sanfrecce Hiroshima.
To all personnel concerning the Whitecaps : I would like to express my gratitude from the bottoms of my heart for truly supporting me and helping me make the transition to a different environment. I will never forget the cheers when I scored the goal against the Orlando City SC after my return from my injury. I shall never forget my priceless and irreplaceable experience with the Whitecaps. With my Transfer back to Japan, I will expose the experiences I learned and obviously I am and will be the biggest supporter of the Whitecaps and MLS. Again Thank you very much. Domo Arigato! Masato Kudo
