The outspoken football chief has expressed his opinions again...The president of the Japanese Football Association (JFA) has called the J-League “boring” and also called for more shots on goal.
Motoaki Inukai, who has infuriated the J-League in the past with such plans as changing the domestic Japanese season calendar, wants more excitement in games in the Land of the Rising Sun.
"[Shooting] is not practised enough among children and they don't do enough of it in games," Inukai told Nikkansports newspaper.
"The J-League doesn't have enough shots on goal - it's boring."
The controversial administrator also pointed out that a Japanese player, on average, takes only 5,000 shots before he becomes a professional. This is compared to the 300,000 shots that an equivalent Brazilian will attempt.
This data came, according to Inukai, from the JFA’s Brazilian counterpart.
