The former Urawa Reds chief is keen to see the national team be more reactive with the fans.

"I think the players still lack professionalism," the 66-year-old said.

"We spoil the players too much in this country. I don't feel they need to be given a 'cooling down' period the day after a game.

"They should be on TV the morning after games talking about the match with supporters - like they do in countries like Germany."

"In Germany players are in the TV studio at 10 a.m. the morning after analysing the game on a screen with fans who are also in the studio, explaining things, answering questions."
