J. League third-division side Tegevajaro Miyazaki announced the death of striker Masato Kudo on Friday following complications from brain surgery.

The 32-year-old, who won Japan's three major club titles with Kashiwa Reysol between 2011 and 2013, was hospitalized earlier this month after being diagnosed with hydrocephalus, a buildup of fluids within the brain.

Tegevajaro announced Tuesday that Kudo's condition had deteriorated following surgery on Oct. 11 and that he had been moved into intensive care.
