Zaccheroni named new Japan coach

Former Juventus boss Alberto Zaccheroni has been named as Japan's new coach, replacing the departed Takeshi Okada.

Zaccheroni, 57, will become the Blue Samurai's sixth foreign manager and is the first Italian to take the job. He will be officially unveiled by the Japanese Football Association (JFA) in a press conference in Tokyo on Tuesday.

The hugely experienced boss is expected to attend Japan's training sessions from Thursday onwards but will not be in charge for the upcoming friendly matches against Paraguay on September 4 in Yokohama and Guatemala on September 7 in Osaka due to visa issues.

JFA technical director Hiromi Hara has already been confirmed in a caretaker capacity for both games, part of preparations for January's Asian Cup.

Zaccheroni has considerable experience in Italy having managed Udinese, AC Milan, Lazio, Inter Milan, Torino and Juventus, whom he guided to seventh after taking over midway through last season.

He also led AC Milan to the Serie A title in the 1998-99 season and replaces Okada, who stood down after taking Japan to the second round of this summer's World Cup in South Africa.
