Halilhodzic vows to rebuild Japan


Former Algeria manager coach Vahid Halilhodzic has made his first public appearance as the new Japan coach.

Speaking at a press conference in Tokyo on Friday, the 62-year old, who had been out of work since leaving Turkish side Trabzonspor in November, laid out his plans to help his new side move up in the FIFA rankings.

Halilhodzic replaces Javier Aguirre, who was sacked last month amid fears that his alleged involvement in a match-fixing case in Spain could hinder Japan’s World Cup qualifying bid.
