Comment from Team Manager Mischa the day before the J. League 19th Sec match against Jubilo Iwata
First of all, I must say that it is very tough for us to play matches in such humid weather. It is expected to be another very hot day tomorrow. I guess most people assume that both teams will be playing under the same conditions. However, technically speaking, I do not think this is the case. While some people can cope well with heat, others cannot. Similarly, some soccer players can play normally in very humid weather but other players find it difficult. As such, I do not think players face the same conditions. One of the important points for tomorrow’s match will be which team will be able to run more. The team which can run around on the pitch more will outdo the other team under such humid weather conditions.
I think Jubilo Iwata has many high quality players. They are a formidable team for us. However, we have prepared ourselves well during the week. Besides that, last season Jubilo Iwata lost their home matches with the result of 0 to 3. I believe that our team players will play with very high motivations tomorrow. I think we will have a very good match tomorrow.
