Kawai was on the men’s national team as a player in the past. Let alone commentator on the men’s team in the past for World Champs, World Cups, etc.
i actually think that this is a good hire to lead the next few years. I would rather have someone with management skills under one of the biggest Japanese brands with Toyota. He’s going to have to create connections to other businesses around Japan, but I think that he’ll be good.
I don't think being a commentator should count as a qualification since they let comedians do commentary for V.League and those red and white matches.
