Akihiro Ienaga (家長 昭博, Ienaga Akihiro, born 13 June 1986 in Nagaokakyō, Kyoto, Japan) is a Japanese footballer who plays for Kawasaki Frontale in the J1 League.

Club career

Ienaga began his career as a trainee with Gamba Osaka, one of the leading clubs in Japan's J1 League. He broke into the senior squad in 2004 and helped the club to their first J-League title the following year. Ienaga joined J-League rivals Oita Trinita on a season-long loan in 2007. In December 2008, Ienaga joined English club, Plymouth Argyle, on trial.[2] Plymouth attempted to sign the player in January 2009 but he was denied a work permit so they were forced to withdraw from talks.[3] In December 2010, he signed with Spanish Primera Division club RCD Mallorca in a five-year deal.[4] And scored his first goal for the club in home game against Sevilla on 9 April 2011.[5]

National team career

In June 2005, Ienaga was elected Japan U-20 national team for 2005 World Youth Championship. At this tournament, he played all 4 matches as left midfielder.

Ienaga made his international debut as a substitute in Japan's 2–0 win against Peru in March 2007.
