Profile Edit

Sano is a brilliant midfielder and Jito's best friend. Jito and Sano are the total opposite of each other, Jito is large built, while Sano is small and nimble. He and Jito form the Hirado Combi. Thanks to his small frame and nimbleness, Sano has an efficient dribble, combined with good ball keeping skills. His ball keeping ability can only be edged by Matsuyama. He later improved his dribbling skills by adding various futsal techniques, learned from the futsal combi, Furukawa and Kazami.
