After Japan’s 2014 World Cup bid fizzled — which saw the Blue Samurai not winning a single game – Alberto Zaccherone resigned, creating the coaching vacancy.
Aguirre’s most recent international experience came four years ago, when he took his native country, Mexico, to the World Cup’s round of 16 in 2010.
He has experience as a manager in Spain, coaching Athletico Madrid and most recently, Espanyol, who finished 14th in La Liga last year.
Reports have said that Aguirre’s contract is in the range of $2.5 million per year. That’s double the earnings his predecessor, Zaccherone earned annually.
Despite the next World Cup not being for another four years in Russia, Aguirre will be tested shortly.
Aguirre’s first major task will come in this January as Japan looks to defend their Asian Cup title in Australia.
