Andres Iniesta's presence in Japan has allowed his club Vissel Kobe to break their own revenue records.
The club recorded an operating profit of 11.44 billion yen - around 96 million euros - in the 2019 fiscal year, which ended on March 31.
It marks the first time that any Japanese team has exceeded 10 billion yen, according to a report released by the J-League on Wednesday.
The club's previous record was 9.66 billion yen - 81 million euros - in 2018.
Vissel Kobe's sponsorship revenue increased by 10 million euros, while ticket sales also increased considerably.
On the other hand, Fernando Torres' former club Sagan Tosu recorded a deficit of 2.1 billion yen - around 18 million euros - for the past year.
