Takashi Usami, born in May 6th 1992, is a professional soccer player from Kyoto prefecture. He is good in offensive positions and regardless if he is a MF or FW, in the center or sides,
he can always make plays thanks to his outstanding skills in shooting, passing and dribbling.
During his adolescence he was known as a young prodigy around his local soccer circles and in 2005 he left from his local soccer club to join Gamba Osaka’s junior youth team. While he was with the junior youth and youth team he proved himself time and time again and was called the masterpiece of Gamba Osaka’s lower branches.
In 2009, while he was a second year student in high school, he managed to promote to the Gamba’s top team, being the club’s first player to ever skip a rank. After being promoted to the top team Usami became the youngest member to break several different Gamba’s records.
In the following season of 2010, the team was divided into a offensive lineups consisting of national team players with Yasuhito Endo being the first to be selected. With this new lineup Usami’s sensational performance produced 7 goals. He also received his first J. League Best Young Player award (rookie of the year award) for Gamba Osaka. He was also elected for the MVP of the season by players and supporters.
In 2011 it was announced that he would be loaned to Germany’s FC Bayern Munich for a limited period of time. During his time with Bayern he became the youngest Japanese to appear in the UEFA Champions League, but in the veteran club that gathered world class players like Arjen Robben, Franck Ribery, Thomas Muller and others, he was rarely played, only appearing in 5 matches and he eventually left the team after 1 season.
In 2012 he transferred to TSG 1899 Hoffenheim and in their 3rd match against SC Freiburg he scored his first point in the Bundesliga. However, because of the clubs poor performance they kept changing managers and Usami was rarely played. Similarly to Bayern, he also had to leave Hoffenheim in one year and returned to Gamba Osaka.
After coming back to the J. League in 2013, he led Gamba to the J2 League champion and to their promotion to J1 in one year. Following that, in 2014 he helped the team win 3 trophies: J. League title, Nabisco Cup, and the Emperor’s Cup. As far as individual achievements go, Usami has scored in the double digits for 3 years in a row, as well as won several titles, including the J. League’s Best XI for the first time. He has developed considerably, most noticeable being his scoring ability and breaking through the enemy defenses.
He continues to produce results and is called up for the Japan national team. His qualities as a player were highly appreciated by manager Vahid Halilhodzic. In 2016 he left Gamba Osaka to join Germany Bundesliga’s FC Augsburg to give the foreign scene another shot.
