After playing the match against Kyoto Sanga F.C. - Team Manager Finke   

Comment from Team Manager Volker Finke after playing in the J. League Fifteenth Sec. against Kyoto Sanga F.C.

I am extremely happy that our team won the match with such a big margin. To be honest with you, I watched the previous J. League match Kyoto Sanga played against Kawasaki Frontale and found out that the team’s level is up there with Kawasaki. The team lost in such an unfortunate manner and finished the game with the score of 0 to 1. For this reason, I hardly expected that we would win the match with the great score of 4 to 0. I am truly glad that our team has made such a great achievement against our opponent.
We lost our previous two matches in such pitiful ways. As we only had three days available to prepare for our last match, it was important for us to switch our mindset and prepare ourselves well for the match. It is totally understandable that some criticisms were made against our team as we were not able to win the past two consecutive matches. However, what had been important for our players was for them not to lose confidence and to believe in themselves even under such difficult situations. We have been able to come to terms with what had happened in the past and finally we have won the match again today.
