Italy legend Baggio regrets not moving to Japan

Former Juventus and AC Milan star Roberto Baggio regrets not moving to Japan.

Baggio admits he had an offer to move to the J-League before the 2002 World Cup.

"In 2000 I had an offer to come to the J. League. At the time I decided against it, because my aim was to get into the Italian national team to come to Japan and South Korea and play in my fourth World Cup.

"I wanted that to be the time that I played in Japan, but looking back now maybe I should have taken the offer."
