After playing the match against Kashima Antlers-Team Manager Finke  

Comment from Team Manager Volker Finke after playing in the J. League Twenty First Sec. against Kashima Antlers

We were able to have a very intense match today. It was so unfortunate that the match ended with such a result. But, I assume all the spectators in the stadium were also able to enjoy a fascinating and intense match today.
During the first half of the match, Kashima Antlers’ players tried to play in the away match with so much confidence. Nevertheless, we did not allow them to create many scoring opportunities. We created opportunities to score the first goal instead. What I really value is the fact that all our players were able to get into the match well.
The team continued to make attacks during the second half of the match as well. As a result, our team managed to create several decisive moments as well. For this reason, it was justifiable that our team scored the first goal. It was extremely regrettable that the team lost one goal after 95 minutes into the match. However, as you were able to see, our team is in the process of making progress.
We are making efforts to be a very strong team in the future. Our team will develop to be the type of team in the near future which will not lose unnecessary goals when we face a similar situation during injury time in the future. Having said that, we should not forget that our team had already lost 4 goals during injury time so far this year. This is truly regrettable.
