After finishing the training-Team Manager Finke  

Comment from Team Manager Volker Finke after finishing the training on 5 September

We have been having very intensive training recently. Over the past few days, players have had hard training. This is to improve our condition towards the final stage of league matches. The past four training sessions we had were very intense. Those sessions might have been too hard on our players. I have put a huge burden on our players intentionally. However, they can all recover themselves this afternoon. Therefore, I am certain that we have had good training in preparation for the rest of the season. Initially, Tatsuya Tanaka was not able to join the team practice fully. However, he has recently been able to join the team practice and I think this is something very positive. As you can see, he can now participate in every program as part of the team without leaving the team and without any sign of rebound. There are many things that need to be improved in terms of each player’s movement and so on. We discuss many things regularly. I point out several issues including their positioning. I have detailed conversations repeatedly with my players to instruct them how they should move during one-on-one situations. I give many pieces of advice to my players so that they can improve themselves as much as possible.
