Philippe Troussier
Philippe Troussier
Position:Coach

Philippe Troussier's four-year reign as Japan coach will end as soon as they go out of the World Cup.

He has promised to bring his love-hate relationship with the country's media and supporters to an end this summer.

He took over after France 98, where Japan found life tough in their first World Cup, going down to three successive defeats.

He admitted that he found the job a bit of a culture shock at first, but his previous African experiences as coach have served him well.

Troussier has had spells with Ivory Coast, Nigeria, Burkina Faso and South Africa - who he coached at France 98.

He led Japan to the Asian Cup title in 2000 and saw them finish runners-up to France in the Confederations Cup.
