Oliver Kahn a Japanese super star?

Bayern Munich and German national team goalkeeper Oliver Kahn is thinking about moving to a Japanese club when his contract ends at the end of the season.

Kahn has been Bayern's keeper since 1994, but at 36-years of age, they have to be looking for a change. Since he was very well received in Japan during the 2002 World Cup and since the J-league would be very happy to have someone of Oliver's caliber on the pitch, I'm sure it would be a very good way to bring his playing days to a close.

Bayern general manager Uli Hoeness told the German paper Bild, "Kahn has been loyal to the club so he can decide whether he wants to stay or go to Japan."

This might just be some psychological warfare to get an extension to his contract, but if it is not, this could end up in a very interesting. I just wonder if he would have to learn to yell in Japanese.
