FC Tokyo send North home from Japan
Following the Japan earthquake and tsunami, the country has been ravaged and the problem of radiation leaking from the Fukushima nuclear plant in the north to Tokyo further south has become apparent.
Just days after signing with the club, North was booked on a flight to return home until the chaos settles in the land of the rising sun.
"So far they've cancelled all of the March fixtures in the J-League and no one knows what will happen then," North said.
"But I've had a great time before the earthquake struck, it's a really good club and I want to come back once things have started to calm down."
