Junichi Inamoto was the first Japanese player to sign for the Stade Rennais. With 70 international caps to his name, he played in the 2002 (Japan) and 2006 (Germany) World Cups. After starting his career at Gamba Osaka, he came to England in 2001, but never really managed to break into the Premier League. After a short spell at Galatasaray (Turkey), he spent two years in Frankfurt (Germany). After his contract expired, he signed for Rennes in June 2009, with the aim of making it to a first eleven position ahead of the 2010 World Cup. However, Inamoto’s playing time was largely limited due to Yann M’Vila unexpected outbreak in the first team. After only 6 months in Rennes, he was released in January 2010 and signed for the Japanese club Kawasaki Frontale.

Sometimes decisive, the Swede lacked of regularity to live up to the club’s great expectations. After two seasons in Rennes, Isaksson was transferred to Manchester City. He is now playing is football in Holland, at the PSV Eindhoven.
