Ex-Man Utd, Atletico forward Forlan keen to experience Cerezo Osaka

Cerezo Osaka signing Diego Forlan says he is looking forward to experiencing a new culture.

The 34-year old Uruguayan ace finalised his $5.8million move to the J.League outfit earlier this week which will see him grace the pitches of Japan between March and December this year.

Forlan, who joins Cerezo from Brazilian side Internacional, admits he is excited about adding another living experience to his well-travelled football career.

"I have had the opportunity to play in different countries. You want to enjoy and live it the way you have to live the sport," Forlan said.

"We must seize the moment, to experience another culture and learn football."

Forlan has had a storied career which started in Argentina with Independiente in 1997 and has taken him to England with Manchester United, to Spain with Villarreal and Atletico Madrid and to Italy with Inter Milan.
