The appointment of Kenta Hasegawa as the next Gamba manager may be officially announced on December 25.

It has been widely accepted that Hasegawa will step into the position for some time now but the club were not expected to formally announce the decision until after the season had come to an end. This could now change with reports in the Japanese media speculating that the announcement will be made prior to Gamba’s Emperor’s Cup semi final match against Kashima Antlers.

We’ll update again if and when the announcement is made!
