Career

Club

Suzuki has spent the majority of his playing career with Kashima Antlers, playing six stints for the team over the course of ten years, in between short periods playing in Brazil and Belgium. Suzuki played 87 games in the J. League for Kashima, scoring 17 goals, and helping the team win the J-League Championship in 1996, 1998, 2000 and 2001.

On January 28, 2006, Suzuki signed with Red Star Belgrade during the 2005/06 season winter break.[1] Takayuki Suzuki had not scored for 1790 minutes/46 games consecutive, until he scored a couple of goals in a 11/4/06 Serbian Cup game against Radnički Niš as Red Star rolled to an easy 5-0 road victory. However, Suzuki's time in Serbia was a disappointment and his move back to J-League to join Yokohama F. Marinos was announced on January 19, 2007.[2]

On 28 March 2008 it was revealed that he signed a one-year contract with Portland Timbers of the USL First Division, joining on a free transfer.[3]

International

Suzuki made his international debut for Japan in 2001, and scored his first international goal on June 2, 2001, in a 2001 FIFA Confederations Cup game against Cameroon.

He played all four of Japan's games at the 2002 World Cup, starting the first three and scoring in the 2-2 tie against Belgium.

He was also part of the Japanese team which won the 2004 AFC Asian Cup.

Playing Style

Suzuki is a no-nonsense physical player whose playing style is different compared to other forwards and strikers. He is well known for his defensive pressure on other defenders to force them to make mistakes. Suzuki was nicknamed the 'Japanese Blond Bomber' after his blond-dyed hair (the original blond bomber was legendary German striker Jürgen Klinsmann).
