Keisuke Honda Made A Bizarre Request In His Botafogo Contract

Keisuke Honda Made A Bizarre Request In His Botafogo Contract

Keisuke Honda has made the move to Brazil but he had a special demand in order for the transfer to go through.

Both Botafogo and Honda himself have confirmed the deal, which will see Honda sign for the club until December but news of the Japanese legend's request has emerged.

As per UOL, Honda asked for an armoured, bulletproof vehicle and security guards for extra protection whilst he is in Rio de Janeiro.

There is no word just yet on what car the former AC Milan and CSKA Moscow midfielder will be receiving - though surely it's only right that he's given the one he shares the same name with.

Honda, has been coaching the Cambodian national team, left Melbourne City in May this year after the A-League season finished.

Having grown increasingly desperate in his search for a new club, the 33-year old even offered himself to Manchester United with a bizarre plea on social media.

On Twitter, he wrote: "Give me an offer. I don't need money but I need to play with great team and great team mate!"

He did the same thing with AC Milan but would eventually sign with Vitesse Arnhem in the Eredivisie.

However, he was there just six weeks in total - playing four games before deciding he needed to "change situation" following the sacking of Leonard Slutsky.

With 37 goals in 98 games for his country, Honda is seen as one of the very best Japanese players of all-time, appearing in three World Cups and playing an integral role in the 2011 Asian Cup win.
