KAWASAKI (Kyodo) Renatinho may have played his last game in a Kawasaki Frontale shirt as the Brazilian has flown home without permission, the J. League first division club announced Friday.
Renatinho, who leads Kawasaki with seven goals in 15 league appearances, has been unhappy about his recent playing time for fourth-place Frontale.
Renatinho has not appeared in Kawasaki's last two matches, including Wednesday's 4-0 home thrashing of Nagoya Grampus. The striker even recently boycotted a training session over his lack of minutes.
