Shimizu's Brosque content in Japan

Shimizu S-Pulse striker Alex Brosque insists he is keen to remain in the J-League despite admitting to thoughts of returning home recently.

The 28-year old former Sydney FC star is enjoying life in Shizuoka and feels that playing in Japan has made him a better-equipped player to represent Australia in upcoming World Cup qualifiers.

"Coming back to Sydney FC was definitely in my thinking a few months ago but I am enjoying my football in Japan and I want to stay," he told The World Game.

"I feel I've improved as a player and Holger Osieck says he's seen evidence of that in my game.

"Sometimes you don't notice it so much yourself but it's been great to get his positive feedback.

"Like to sign another deal with S-Pulse and hopefully that can happen. I feel remaining in Japan will give me the best chance of continuing to be selected for the Socceroos.

"We're just about to begin the final phase of qualifying for Brazil and I want to be a part of what is going to be a long and testing campaign to get there.

"The quality of Japanese football is getting better all the time and the league is so technical and also tactical that you can only benefit from being here."
