Ex-Sagan Tosu coach Carreras hails Barcelona signing Hiroki Abe

Former Sagan Tosu coach Lluís Carreras has no doubts about the quality of new Barcelona signing Hiroki Abe.

Abe has signed with Barca B from Kashima Antlers.

Carreras told AS: "Abe not only plays as centre forward but can play on both flanks and even as an attacking midfielder.

"He is technically very good, fast, agile, intelligent, has quality, can threaten one against one from any position on the field, works very hard during the game both offensively and defensively, after running 90 minutes he does not lose speed, when he plays as a forward he has goals, assists."
