Okazaki is certainly a very hard working player but many have criticised his less than prolific goalscoring record in recent times and the attacker has now revealed that he is working hard to get himself into the box more often in order to improve his strike rate in front of goal.
The Japanese international said: "I have changed my thinking. My working is the same, and my job has the same style. I still work hard but, after we get the ball, I try harder to get into the box.
"Hard work and pressure, that is still all good. But I am trying to get into the box more. So, my thinking has changed."
