The former Albirex Niigata skipper has inherited not just Shahdan Sulaiman's jersey number at Tampines, but also will be an instrument to the Stags’s fortune at his role as chief playmaker.

With his individual skills, vision, and high technical ability, the left-footed Japanese has fitted seamlessly into his new team, and this should help Tampines cope with the loss of Shahdan to nouveau riche LionCity Sailors.

Possessing an excellent leap and timing in the header, young Pereira is also comfortable with the ball at his feet.

During pre-season, Pereira has looked handy in a deep-lying playmaker's role like his role model, Sergio Busquets, and could blossom under the nurturing hand of Eagles head coach Noor Ali.
