After playing the match against Tokyo International University-Team Manager Finke   

Comment from Team Manager Volker Finke after playing in the Second round of the Emperor’s Cup against Tokyo International University

Our players showed the right performance during the match today. They were able to start the match highly concentrated. As a result, we had a great victory today. Considering their performance, it was very justifiable that our team won the match. I do not think I have anything more to comment on.
However, there is one thing I desire, which is Sergio’s injury not to be too bad. I really hope that he does not have to be away from our team for some weeks due to his injury.
I hope that our members who are with the national team will also return to join the team without any injuries. I thought that Hosogai showed excellent performance during the match yesterday. I also heard from my friend that Spiranovic who is currently in Switzerland and played as a starting line up member of the Australian national team performed really well during the match they played against the Swiss team yesterday. Since we have many injured players at the moment, I really hope that our national team players will return to our team without any injuries.
