Soccer: Antlers retain Iwamasa as manager for 2023 J-League season


Manager Daiki Iwamasa will remain at the helm of Kashima Antlers next season, the J-League first-division club said Friday. The former Antlers player was promoted from a coaching role to the top job following the dismissal of Swiss manager Rene Weiler midway through the past season. Winners of a record eight Japanese top-flight championships, Antlers will aim for their first title in seven years next season. The Ibaraki Prefecture club finished fourth in the J1 this year.
