Moriyasu was supposedly the best by-product of the J-League to become the head coach of the National Team, but look at where this is going now despite a 71.05% win rate in 40 matches at the helm. Nishino had plenty of ups and downs in his J-League coaching career. How can you even expect a better outcome with a Japanese manager if we can't even get something out of those two? I have grown totally disgruntled with Moriyasu's work for the men's team and Takakura's work for the women's team. So I will not apologize for my current distrust towards Japanese managers, which has been building up for the last 5 years. Those are 2 monster disaster appointments that have undone everything the JFA have built over the last 2 decades. What is the point of having a supposedly unique footballing culture if it is ill-adapted to compete against the very best teams in the world? If there is one thing I find naïve right now, it's the entire state of affairs within Japanese football. The absolute arrogance from the JFA through Moriyasu and Takakura in recent years is the reason why both Japanese senior national teams are hot messes in a dumpster fire right now. It's funny that you mention China because what they are doing right now should serve as a warning about what hubris can do if Japan falls into the same trap.
