Nagatomo: "Even at 30 years old, I can still do so much. Justin Gatlin won gold at 35..."
After receiving praises from Luciano Spalletti, Yuto Nagatomo is all fired up to play this upcoming season. On his Twitter profile, the Japanese comments on the criticism that he is too old and not good enough to play for Inter by using a comparison to Justin Gatlin who, at 35 years old, just won the 100 meters race at the World Championship 2017.
“Justin Gatlin won gold at 35 years old, I am only a bit older than 30. I do feel my speed is falling but I cannot use my age as an excuse. If I continue to use my effort to work hard, good performances will continue to be there beyond 30 years of age. Soon I will be 31 and I can give so much more.”
