After playing the match against FC Tokyo-Team Manager Finke  

Comment from Team Manager Volker Finke after playing in the J. League Second Sec. against FC Tokyo
We wanted to win today’s match as our first victory for this season and as a matter of fact, we did win this time. To be honest with you, I thought we would have played better if we did not outnumber our opponent. When a member of our opponent team is sent off from the pitch and we outnumber them, it makes it difficult for me to lead my team. This is because some of the players may lose their concentration unconsciously. I must point this out to them. For this reason, players often play better when they are playing with the same numbers of opponent players.
Having said all this, I think we were able to perform very well in general but particularly well during the first half of the match. In reality, we should have scored additional goals.
It was really important for us to gain 3 points through our home match this time as we unfortunately lost our opening away match previously. Now that we achieved our goal, I do not intend to make a big complaint about our players’ performance at this time.
