中村、言われてるぞ!
対ハーツ 1対1期待に応えていない!(goo スポーツ)
Nakamura the weakest link for fragile Celtic(Sunday Times)

珍しく中村に批判的な日本の記事を発見したので原文をあたってみた。

この間のハーツ戦の記事、タイトルもえげつないけど、
中身も辛らつで、ずいぶんと地元紙は言ってくれていますね。

選手個人を評価するのにはいろいろな物差しがあるし、
それは国やリーグによって異なるものでうなずける点もある。

自分も彼に対する不満をここに書くことがあるが、
外国のクラブで外国人としてプレーすることの意味や攻撃的MFに期待される役割、
そろそろそんなものを本当の形にしてくれることを期待しています。

中村に焦点があたりすぎている面がありますが、
記事の内容そのものは冷静なものだと思いました。
中村に関係ある部分のみ抜粋しておきます。

A contributory factor is that the Old Firm have not signed the calibre of players that scare other teams. Hearts midfielder Samuel Camazzola is a player that manager George Burley apparently doesn’t fancy, but Celtic’s Shunsuke Nakamura had less impact on yesterday’s game than the Brazilian.

I watched Nakamura make his debut against Dundee United, a performance that had Strachan calling it the best debut he had ever seen. I wouldn’t push it that far, he did well but United lacked belief. He has lorded it over smaller sides who haven’t got the quality and sit off the game, like United, Falkirk and Inverness. But he was non-existent in the Old Firm game and, in recent matches that I’ve seen, he has been a peripheral figure.

He was deployed on the right side of midfield yesterday from where he could come inside and create, but he created very little. When Celtic fans think of Lubomir Moravcik, their last playmaker of note, they remember a guy who could make something happen even when he was not having a great game. I am yet to see that from Nakamura. He is not the new Juninho, but if Hearts keep getting results and Celtic struggle, it will pose a conundrum for Strachan. The manager is looking for a formation that most suits Nakamura but he hasn’t found it yet. How long can he try and accommodate a player who is becoming a luxury?
