After playing the match against Sanfrecce Hiroshima-Team Manager Finke   

Comment from Team Manager Volker Finke after playing in the J. League Twenty Third Sec. against Sanfrecce Hiroshima

We had several good moments in the second half of the match. As a matter of fact, I think our team was playing fairly well. However, we should not have lost the two points in the first half of the match. When the level of the game was like the one we played today, we should not have lost the goals like we did. It was very unfortunate that we lost our goals and that our opponent team scored first again this time. We tried hard to catch up with our opponent. Nonetheless, we could not score decisive goals in the end.
When we have not been able to win matches for several weeks like it has been the case with us, not everything goes easily for us. I think our players are, in a way, playing matches feeling heavy in their heads. There were some scoring opportunities in the first half of the game. Genki Haraguchi and Sergio could have created some decisive opportunities and it would have been possible to score some goals by taking advantage of such opportunities. However, the team struggled to score goals in reality.
I put Tulio and Takahara in during the second half of the game. I think they created several very positive moments while they were playing the match.
