Back to First Team


Arrivé en 2016 à l’OM, Hiroki Sakai, latéral droit international japonais, s’est rapidement fait une place au soleil dans la défense olympienne. Sobre, efficace et régulier dans ses prestations, le Nippon a disputé 40 matchs en 2016-17 et 50 en 2017-18. Le 12 avril 2018, le jour de ses 28 ans il marque le 5e but de l’OM face à Leipzig à l’Orange Vélodrome (quart de finale retour d’Europa League) et conclut en beauté l’une des plus belles soirées de la saison.
