After playing the match against Gamba Osaka - Team Manager Finke  

Comment from Team Manager Volker Finke after playing in the J. League Twenty First Sec. against Gamba Osaka
The performance of all the players who played on the pitch was good today. I thought their play itself was good. I do not want to make any criticisms about the team here. In actual fact, the team’s “performance” itself was really good from the beginning of the game to the end.
However, in soccer, the fact is that if you can not score goals, you can not win. Unfortunately, we were not able to score goals by making the most of the scoring opportunities we created today. At the very end, we lost a goal by making a small mistake like we did. The player who made the mistake was performing excellently throughout the game for about 90 minutes until then. However, we lost the game by making such a mistake. This is the harsh reality of playing soccer. It was very hard not only for players but also for us coaches. Having said that, we should not just forget about today’s performance of the team throughout the game.
