After playing the match against Nagoya Grampus-Team Manager Finke   

Comment from Team Manager Volker Finke after playing in the J. League Tenth Sec. against Nagoya Grampus

Since it was such a hot day today, I put on a polo shirt instead of a suit. Incidentally, this is a Hugo Boss polo shirt. It is a very high quality shirt. I would like to recommend this shirt to all of you (lol).
Despite such hot weather, we were able to perform well today in front of so many supporters. I am extremely pleased about this. Though, it is true that the team could not perform well on the pitch at times during the first half of the match. However, I have no intention of elaborating on this point as we were able to rectify our problems after our half time discussion.
As for the two goals the team scored, our players passed the ball well amongst themselves to create the scoring opportunities. Those goals were scored by the team from combination plays.

We had expected that we would not win from aerial plays. But, I am very pleased about the team’s performance and the fact that we achieved the result we did today. Our team played a high quality game against Shimizu S-Pulse in our previous match. However, as we were not able to win the match, it was not so easy for me to explain to people how well the team played at that time. As for the match today, not only did the team perform well but they also won the match. For this reason, I am sure that everyone was able to feel great pleasure from the result.
This is what our goal for this year is all about. We are to play high quality games, play our own style of soccer well and to achieve great results. I think our supporters are satisfied with the result today. I hope many of our supporters will come back to the stadium again for another match.
