Nakamura sidelined by ankle injury


Yokohama F. Marinos’ ex-Japan international midfielder Shunsuke Nakamura will be sidelined for around a month with a sprained left ankle, the J. League first-division club said Sunday.

The 33-year-old former Reggina, Celtic and Espanyol midfielder sustained the injury during Saturday’s 0-0 draw away to local rivals Kawasaki Frontale.
